Vilja Reads

I'm a student, so I don't have nearly as much time for leisure reading as I'd like. If I manage to read an entire course book instead of just the assigned chapters, I'll review that here, too.

Currently reading

Lair of Dreams (Libba Bray) so far has the same good points and bad points as The Diviners, the first book in the series. The introduction of Ling was actually really well done, but the rest of the time the description is too cinematic to be immersive.

 

I know it's easier to criticize others than do better, but there you have it. I would also like more physical description, at least some detail to hang a mental image upon. So far there is only one new character that has had a properly evocative description, and I'm pretty sure he's about to be eaten by a demon to provide motivation for Ling.

 

And it still bugs me that they capitalize Diviners as if they were a brand. But the radio show recording bit was pure gold.
