Updates: Beaten by the Wheel

The pottery wheel and I had a minor disagreement (read: full blown war). ... The pottery wheel won. Meet the two survivors (out of five).

Every time I went to thin out and shape the sides, I mangled it. Sigh. :( Oh well, there are more classes next month, and I think, with a TON of extra help, I'll take another shot at it. Yes, the instructor will be sick of me by the end, but hopefully I'll have some nice pieces to show for it. Time to set my evil plan in motion!

Read This Week:

I still have several library books to get through, but I finished these two fairy tale retellings. Princess of the Silver Woods mixes Robin Hood, Red Riding Hood and the 12 Dancing Princesses and completes Jessica Day George's Princess trilogy. What is Hidden is a Cinderella retelling in a fantasy Venice where everyone wears masks. I didn't love either one, but they are quick, light and mildly romantic if you're looking for beach reads.

That's it for this week. Thanks for stopping in and check back tomorrow for my review of Murder of Crows by Anne Bishop! Which I liked just as much if not more than Written in Red. :)


  1. Okay, the premise of Princess of the Silver Woods sounds great! A mix of three fairy tales?? Sounds like it could either be a giant mess or a fantastic success

    1. It wasn't a mess, exactly. It just felt really rushed and glossed over, almost more plot than character if you know what I mean. But it's fun enough. You'll probably like it if you enjoy the Once Upon a Time series. :)

  2. Next time, YOU'LL kick pottery's butt ;D That looks pretty cool to me! And I kind of really want to read Princess of the Silver Woods! I love fairy tale fantasy ^_^

    1. I hope so! You should go read the Princess trilogy if it sounds good to you. Fairy tale retellings! :)
