I am so happy to find someone else who has read and enjoyed Tam Lin by Pamela Dean. For me, it ranks right up there as one of my Top 10 books of all time. I don't know what it is about it that I love most -- the whole college atmosphere, the "slice of college life" structure, or the way the ballad re-telling just sort of sneaks in there, but I adore it. I've read it so many times that it has entered into that category of comfort reading for me -- you know, when you need to read a book but you just want something that you know and that feels right? Yeah. That's this book for me.

Love this blog post -- these types of books have always been one of my favorite types, and all of your recommendations are great. I think I see a related blog post in the future about my own favorites. :)


I read briar rose a while ago and liked it. I've also read and enjoyed the goose girl series. I read a takeoff on sleeping beauty by Orson Scott Card that was interesting but I can't remember the name. You've given me some ideas to go check out at the library..... as usual! Thank you.
