    Sue Townsend Passed Away

    This is a story from last week, but I hadn’t read up on this amazing author and didn’t realise that she was both a young adult author and such an incredible person. Sue Townsend was the author of the poplar Adrian Mole YA books which were adapted  for TV in the UK in 2001.

  • I Do Not Think That Word Means What You Think It Means

    Hey everybody! How are you fine people doing today?

    ​I want to take a momentary break from reviewing and bookish shenanigans to talk about words. Specifically commonly used words that are also slurs.

    Trigger warning: I’m talking about slurs so assume this post will be full of words you may find offensive. I’m using them in a way I hope is constructive, educational and will ultimately make us all (slightly) better people. However, if you can’t handle that, you may want to click out of this window and go look up kitten videos or whatever floats your boat. You have been warned.

    The intention of this post is not to rehash and complain about known problem words (I mean, we all know that if you call someone retarded/faggot/cunt you’re probably going to cause a problem, right?) Same goes for profanity. I understand that some people find it offensive, but being crass is not the same as being hurtful.

Cut

Reading mangas is one of my preferred pastimes.  Reading Yaoi mangas is my favourite way to relax. So here are five mangas set in high school that I quite like. Just a warning that some of these can get quite graphic and gratuitous.  Yaoi mangas tend to be all with the sex and heavy content regardless of being set in high school. I’ve provided warnings for triggers, mature content and off-the-wall gorgeousness for each of them so that you can decide on your own which ones you’d like to try.

Why these five?

I’ve probably literally read hundreds of mangas, but I’m very particular with my yaois. There tends to be too many sexual assault story lines in the genre, which I dislike. I picked these ones because they generally don’t use those tropes and focus more on the relationships and character developments. Also, be prepared for slurs. Mangas don’t seem to be shy about calling someone a “homo” or having a gay character refer to themselves as a “homo”.

Honor's Knight by Rachel Bach

It’s no secret that I loved Rachel Bach’s first Paradox novel earlier this year. So much about it was spot on, but none more so than main character and narrator Deviana “Devi” Morris. Her outing  and characterization in that series opener (titled Fortune’s Pawn) — that ball of action and battles and romantic chemistry like WHOA in SPAAACE that it was — was pitch perfect. It was balls to the wall awesome, labelled the Most Jessie of all Jessie Books, and it made an impression.

So to say I was excited for Honor’s Knight is a tad of an understatement. Oh boy, did it deliver a nearly perfect reading experience for a science fiction fan. Give me strong, capable, complete characters like this Paradoxian merc any day. Give me complicated and original plots like these and my SF/F addiction will go on unimpeded. Devi is arrogant and always ready for a fight, but she’s also compassionate, smart, and careful.
