Battle Magic by Tamora PierceI went out and bought this as a birthday present to myself.  Best idea this year.  Woot woot!Briar!  Rosethorn!  Evvy!  Oh you beautiful people.  It’s like someone picked through my brain and gave me exactly the people I wanted from Emelan.So, this is set after Street Magic but before The Will of the Empress and gives the reader all (?) the details that Briar alluded to previously.  It’s the journey home to Emelan for the trio… with a quick swing through a couple more countries on the way that just happen to end up at war with each other because one country is lead by a power hungry tyrant.  (I kept wanting to call him an idiot, but he’s not… he’s an already power, used to getting his way, terror.)I felt so much for Evvy in this, it Street Magic I was sort’ve ‘eh’ about her.  I didn’t like her nor dislike her and I was perhaps a little too focused on Briar and Rosethorn.  But what she goes through in this book is a horror and I just wanted to scoop her up and protect her until she was okay to protect herself again. 
Picture in my head: Luvo, heart of a mountain and cutest piece of rock in the history of ever.
But also: the mountain gods mooning Briar, because I know if I was a god that was rarely seen to move, that’s what I’d do too.
So!  Now I just have to get Melting Stones?  And then I’ll have all of Tamora Pierce’s books.  At least until the Numair books come out.  And you can bet I’ll be slingshotting out of my seat to get a copy of those.


I NEED THIS BOOOOOOOOK

Conversation with my very religious mother

Me:did you know that it is a sin to where that shirt and you could go to hell?
Mom:
Me:I mean it has mixed fabrics.
Me:According to the bible, that's a sin.
Mom:show me where it says that
Me:levictus 19:19
"'Keep my decrees.
“‘Do not mate different kinds of animals.
“‘Do not plant your field with two kinds of seed.
“‘Do not wear clothing woven of two kinds of material.
Mom:
Mom:
Mom:well just because it says that doesn't mean you can say its a sin and we'll go to hell
Me:so why are people doing that with homosexuality

"She awoke to a stable cat giving birth near her ear and three children - a girl and two boys - watching her solemnly.
“I s’pose you’re fair proud of yourself,” Daine told the cat. “My wondrous book says you’re a feline, and a carnivore, and a vertebrate, and a mammal. I wish them that wrote it could smell around here right now and maybe they wouldn’t call you all those pretty names.”"

When did he stop treating you like a princess?
Domestic violence and abuse can happen to anyone, but the vast majority of victims are young girls and women simply because they are “the weaker sex”.
Did you know:
On average, 2 women a week are killed by a current or former male partner. This constitutes nearly 40% of all female homicide victims.
45% of women are abused/raped by current husbands or partners, 9% by former partners, and a further 29% of perpetrators were otherwise known to the victim. Only 17% are attacked by by strangers.
44% of victims of domestic violence are involved in more than one incident. A large number of women experience the same abuse every week.
On average, a woman is assaulted 35 times before her first call to the police.
30% of domestic violence either starts or will intensify during pregnancy.
In almost 75% of incidents, a child is present or in a room closeby.
THIS HAS GOT TO STOP. IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE THIS WAY.
It’s time to show the world that we are not weak and we will simply not stand for this kind of ill treatment. Women should be treated as princesses, like Ariel and Cinderella, who never have to live in fear of their so-called Prince Charming.
It’s time to stand up. To speak out. To be heard.
