I’m a featured blogger!

This week I was honored to be chosen as a Featured Blogger by Kate of Parchment Girl! She asked me lots of fun questions about my favorite books, authors, movies, music, food, and more, and made it all look so attractive and inviting with her great sense of visual style. Here’s the full interview at Kate’s blog.

While you’re there, check out some of her other wonderful content, like this list of books to look forward to this winter, and her fantastic series about book blogging. I’m so glad she reached out to make the connection, and look forward to reading more of her posts in future.

  1. What a great interview, Lory. I loved her questions. Such a nice mix of fun and informative. I am going to take your suggestion and try the Ursula K. LeGuin. I read Lathe of Heaven a short time ago and didn’t like it as well as I hoped I would, but I love UG’s philosophies in regards to literature, so would very much like to give her another go.

    • She has many different kinds of books; if you don’t like one, do try another to give her another chance. Recently I reread her last novel, Lavinia, which I did not like on the first read – and I loved it this time. The Earthsea books are some of my alltime favorites, but I also recommend her trilogy Gifts – Voices – Powers, especially the last one (could be read on its own). And The Dispossessed for SF. I know not all authors can speak to everyone, but I hope you might find something of hers to enjoy!

      • I appreciate you taking the time to respond with your thoughts on all of these works. I most definitely will try her again soon. I believe that the trilogy is available at our library, so I might start there.

    Great interview! And now I understand why you’re an expert on children’s book, besides just natural enthusiasm.

    And I am getting those Le Guin novellas off the shelf immediately.

  3. I”m a huge Le Guin fan and read a lot of her in college–but not as much recently. She has such a terrific range.

    And I agree with your take on fictional crushes–I ship a couple, but that doesn’t meant I want someone for myself.

    • Yes, LeGuin has an impressive range — I want to read her Orsinia books now that just got published by the Library of America. I tried them in high school and thought “What is this stuff?” — I expected more Earthsea type fantasy. I think now I might appreciate them more.
