Hey!

Yeah, that is okay that you posted here, no worries...

I know, I wish I lived in Australia! It is sooo beautiful there, and we wouldn't be in pain waiting for The Singing!

HI Hippy Child! (sorry is that too much enthusiasm?)
Sorry, I haven't met many Pellinor fans.
^^ so, jealous of anyone living in Australia? wow, that's a first, I must say though. I've always been jealous of you guys, in the US! There always seem to be more great books and great authors (and their book tours) over there early than with the scarce few over here. (I'd say Pellinor is one of them)

Eh? I read on the US Alison Croggon site that The Singing releases it the U.S in March, 2009. Is that true?

I can relate. That's the same with me and early US book releases but I suppose I've never had to make a year.

Why don't you order a copy from the internet?

I think there is a way that the publishers or internet people make sure that people don't get the books until the release date in the country...but I may be wrong.

I really wish we could get the books from other countries. There is another Australian writer, Juliet Marillier, that I have fallen in love who has two more books out, but not in the US.

I've read wildwood dancing which has a sequel coming out, and it was a retelling of the Twelve dancing princesses. I really liked that one. Then I've also read the sevenwaters trilogy which starts with Daughter of the Forest. That one was a retelling of The Six Swans, and was also really good. There is a fourth coming out for that trilogy. I always think it's wierd when that happens. I believe she is also working two other series. She has a different style than I'm used to, but I think it is really cool.

The twelve dancing princesses is a fairy tale, but I don't think it is as well known as others like Snow White and Cinderella. It is about Twelve Princesses who sneak out to go dancing every night and come back with holes in their shoes each morning. Their father wants to know what they been up to so decrees that who ever can figure out what they are to gets to pick one of his daughters to marry. Wildwood Dancing is pretty different from the traditional version, but I enjoyed it a lot.

The Six Swans is an Irish fairy tale that I had heard of, but didn't know very well. There are different variations of it, but it is typically about the daughter of a king or lord, and she has to save her brothers who turned into swans. She was to weave them shirts (of various materials depending on the version) without uttering a single sound. The Daughter of the forest was a really good retelling in my opinion, and the rest of the trilogy was just as good. I highly recommend them.

They are definitely worth your while. I actually just got another book by Juliet Marillier in the mail yesterday and I am really excited to read it. She just has such a unique style of writing.

I love "different" books.

I also love books that make you go, "woah. I was NOT expecting that!"

Yeah I know exactly what you mean. My friend (who doesn't read that much) pointed out to me that all fantasy books are pretty much the same and therefore really predictable. I still love them anyway, but it always really thrilling when something unexpected happens. Another book I read, Hero's Son by Edith Pattou was like that. The over all plot was pretty typical, but she had a lot of really creative ideas that were unusual and made the story really enjoyable.

I don't think all fantasy books are the same at all!

I really like fantasy for the variety actually!

Thank you for pointing that out. After he said that I, sort of started to believe, but now you have me thinking again. You have a lot more options with fantasy. There are so many different places you can go to whether it exists or not. I have always liked fantasy because I live the real world everyday, so I want to read something that is different.

EXACTLY!

I really like being able to "hang with vampires for a day" and then the next, go to Hogwarts with Harry, Ron, and Hermione.

Then there is Eragon where you can live with Dragons...

and the Pendragon books where you time jump to different "worlds" to battle an evil St. Dane...

ohhh the possibilities!!

You totally just listed all the ones I get into the most. There times when I get really depressed because I want to taste butterbeer from the three broomsticks, and ever since I turned eleven without getting a letter, I know that can't happen.
