Was feeling a bit bleugh last month so had a bit of a Robin McKinley splurge and bought Rose Daughter and Sunshine. Rose Daughter I could take or leave (I prefer Beauty, it's a total comfort book) but LOVED Sunshine! Bit of a different take on the old vampire romance trope. Also, really made me want to go and eat cakes. Have now reserved The Blue Sword and The Door in the Hedge (I remember reading the latter ages ago when I was at school ) Anyone else a fan?
I am such a fan. Blue Sword and The Hero and the Crown are my comfort books. I just adore them, I read them first about 15 [or more] years ago. I also read these at school, while hiding out in the library.
Sunshine is a good book, It's not a soppy romancey vampire book. I liked the concept and it seemed so different from what she would normally write.
I agree with Rose Daughter, I like Beauty and a Door in the Hedge as well.
She also wrote Deerskin, which I like, it's rather sad, but well written. A girls love for her dog. It will make you cry.
