Alif the Unseen

It's 4 a.m. and the only reason I'm not still reading this book is that my eyes are watering too much from tiredness. Run don't walk to the nearest copy and start reading. The review blurb says "a combination of Neal Stephenson and Philip Pullman" but that doesn't nearly cover it. This book is so smart yet so compelling, not a burden to read like you're trying to improve your mind. I hope the ending won't disappoint.

Her blog is pretty good too, from what I've seen. I liked her post on feminists. gwillowwilson.com, check it out, yo.
