Wednesday Words – Parchment Poll November 2015

25 November, 2015
Here I am again with a new Parchment Poll…
STAR READ
Sword of Destiny by Sue Vincent A beautiful, gentle, magical read. I absolutely loved the way the author portrays Merlin!
Brilliant books – will re-read
The Letter of Marque by Patrick O’Brian Swash-buckling action and a lovely, romantic ending for Maturin. Daphne’s Diary #6 2015 Full of colours and ideas – just reading this gets my creative juices going again… Mslexia # 67 Thoroughly enjoyed the articles and interviews; always inspiring and encouraging. Just didn’t “get” the winning poems though… Boxen by C S Lewis Think Shakespeare meets Beatrix Potter. Hilarious spelling but amazing usage of English for a school age boy… A Game of Thrones by George R R Martin Took a while to get into it and then discovered my favourite character died! Definitely will read more, as am now intrigued by the Daenerys storyline! Daphne’s Diary #7 2015 Colourful, autumnal and highly inspirational! Achieving Abundant Energy by Cathy Robinson Needs to be re-read; there’s so much information in it!
Interesting but probably won’t re-read
The Coral Island by R M Ballantyne Enjoyable read but a bit preachy in places. Interzone #260 3/5 of the stories were worth reading this time… but none of the reviews made me want to watch/read the films/books… Inkheart by Cornelia Funke Very difficult to get into. I liked the ideas but it was hard-going…
Re-reads
Daphne by Justine Picardie This is such a good book to re-read and lose oneself in a land of make-believe and reality… Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier This book still holds my attention, creeps me out and shivers my spine – and it’s 25 years since I first read it! … Clearing Away The Rubbish by Adrian Plass Hilarious and poignant by turns, this is a challenging and encouraging read. Dune by Frank Herbert Possibly the best sic-fi novel ever written (in my opinion!) and I never tire of re-reading it.
Currently reading: –
Inkspell by Cornelia Funke
Have you read any of these books? What did you think of them?

Fried Egg Flower

27 September, 2013
More comments from my lovely readers…
Thank you so much for Clippings. I thoroughly enjoyed reading each and every word. Being 30, with the Fried egg flower, caught me and I find myself imagining the form and appearance of it. 🙂 Lost with the Ninth is again a mysterious story quite like the one that I have read of your story about a unicorn. I was curious about how your creative retreat went and glad that you made an update. I read all of it and all I can say is you have found yourself more than you ever thought you have. I like how those short updates capture what and how you feel without words – writing and reading. It amazes me how liberating it feels not having to write and read but that you will always want to return to it. Take care and keep writing! I am curious about that subject that seem to trouble you. I can’t wait to hear about it… E Choi
Thank you for the link Freya. It is great! E L Bennett
