Justine Larbalestier Rocks My World

I have a few reviews I could write (and many more books I could read), but instead I’m going to talk about how much I love Justine Larbalestier and how glad I am she is blogging again.

Justine is a YA novelist who has written a number of books including the Magic or Madness Trilogy, How to Ditch Your Fairy, Liar, and the recent Team Human. (I’m too lazy to link to all of them, but as Team Human only came out in July, I thought a link might be handy.) I’ve enjoy all of her books that I’ve read, most particularly Liar (which Mia and I never reviewed! For shame!), and I really, really appreciate her dedication to representing people of color in her books though she is white (all of her books have major POC characters).

But mostly I love her brilliance (she started out as an academic and has a book about feminism and science fiction), which she regularly displays on her blog. It’s been one of my favorite blogs for quite a while and I was so sad when she stopped blogging due to her development of RSI and SO HAPPY that she has returned at last to us*.

So happy, in fact, that I felt the need to write this blog post, and tell any of you out there to go check her blog out. She is smart and clever and SMART and CLEVER and I’m honestly about to swoon. Seriously, go check it out.

*She’s been blogging since the beginning of July, so you might ask why I didn’t make a post back then. I’m not entirely, to be honest. Maybe it’s just that now she’s been blogging for almost two months, I feel confident that she’s sticking around.

  1. I remember you talking about this when we read Liar! (Which, yes, shame on us.) I’m adding this to my Google Reader as we speak.
