The Blue Sword by Robin McKinley


Yes, I have a terrible habit of reading an entire book in one day.

I like The Hero and the Crown; I love The Blue Sword.  I don't know what it is about this story, but I have remembered bits and pieces of it for years.  I think it's possibly one of my favorite books of all times and for what reason I'm not entirely sure.  I like the idea of books that feature girls who get up and do stuff, and I also like books that have horses because it reminds me of where I come from.  Maybe it's just that in McKinley's writing I see something of what I wish I was or what I wish could be.  I want to be one of these unlikely heroes that fall into place in a world that's not quite sure what to do with them - but needs them.  I'm not sure what it is about this book but it has inspired me even when I'm not quite aware of it which is an alarming thing to realize.

About Me

My photo
Grew up traveling to rodeos with my parents. I've gone across the world thanks to my gypsie feet. I feel sometimes like I've done everything & nothing. I've played roller derby, traveled parts of the world, have four degrees. I've done some things most people will never do in their lives & still I want to do more. I want to work with orphans & teenagers again. I'm a Christian. I have a lot of tattoos. I like art therefore I want to be art. I love people. I started writing years ago when I was a kid. I think at the time it was an outlet for me; I found escape in my word & the worlds I created. Eventually I just started to like creating stuff & that's when I started sharing it with other people. Now I think I write every day. I want to do NaNoWrMo this year. I'm also learning how to knit. I think I'm on my way to being an eccentric old woman who runs around the world doing silly cazy things and knitting while she does them. Be on your guard I have knitting needles!
