Bitsy's Books

Note: I'm uploading my books from Goodreads and since there are like 200+ it's going to take awhile. The uploading seems a bit wonky too, so hang with me as I fix things. Also there may be spoilers until I can make all the appropriate tags.


I'm an ex-English Major who, sick of reading classics after college, decided to read all the trashy books I didn't before because I was too snobby. Since graduating, I've entertained myself with comics, YA, and romance novels, finding out they can not only be decently written, but superbly written. I've since recovered from my classics aversion, but I'm now more open-minded reader willing to read from any genre. If a book has kick-ass heroines and/or witty banter and/or takes place in a different time or place (including fantasy settings), I will most likely fall in love with it. My favorite authors are Jane Austen, Shakespeare, E.M. Forster, Meljean Brook, Sarah Rees Brennan, Rachel Hartman, Catherynne M. Valente, and Aliette de Bodard.

The Audition (Seraphina, #0.5) - Rachel Hartman A short interlude before the events of Serphina, detailing how she got her job as assistant to Viridius, the court composer. It reads more like a missing chapter from Seraphina, explaining more about Viridius and Glisselda and their contentious relationship, which was hinted at but never shown. I still reccomend reading it after Seraphina because it spoils some of the surprises of the novel. It's beautifully written and unexpected, just like the novel it preludes.And Princess Glisselda is the awesomest.
