Follow the Blood-Red Brick Road

Posted by Shelly Holder

So I was reading Bibliobitch, the book blog from Bitch Magazine and found this delightfully amusing video from a recent article.

Ahahahaha, oh my.

I really wish that a lot of the urban fantasy genre could take themselves a little more lightly, whether reader or writer. The recent controversy over Twilight has sent everyone to one extreme or the other, and in the process I think that we have lost a lot of humor that the genre originally intends. As Kelsey Wallace says, "I also love that, while she is a fantasy writer herself, Stiefvater doesn't seem to be taking the genre too seriously (you know, since it's supposed to be fun)."

Well, that's all for today. I have this really exciting writing assignment coming up today in class for Life Writing, and I want to sit and contemplate the fun coming. Like, Vampires, Werewolves, and Kraken (oh my) fun.


Right Now:
What I'm listening to: Psychobabble by Frou Frou
