about me

Dear Everyone,
I am going to take a little break from authonomy. I am so utterly exhausted by all that is going on in my life I just can't give it the time it needs at the moment...and we all know it needs a lot of time!
I will leave my books up as I know a few people who'd still like to read them.
If I have promised to do a read-swap I am very sorry, I will try to make it up to all of you by backing your books at least before I collapse...
Just for the record - before Clara sinks into obscurity, the highest she got in the chart was 188...!
Good luck all you great writers out there, and many thanks for all your useful comments.
Eva

PS. Special message for 6C - hope you enjoy it! Let me know what you think...

PPS. I'm going to leave on my shelf the books I consider to be the best ones I've read on authonomy so far.

favourite books

Children's novels: Journey to the River Sea by Eva Ibbotson, the BFG by Roald Dahl (fantastic for reading aloud), Mouse Noses on Toast by Daren King, The Chronicles of Narnia, Clarice Bean Spells Trouble by Lauren Child.
Picture books: Julia Donaldson has to be the queen of all picture book writers so everything she's written is brilliant, but my favourite of all of hers is The Snail and the Whale. other favourites; The Whales' Song by Dyan Sheldon and Gary Blythe, Cinderella, an Art Deco Love Story, by Lynn Roberts and David Roberts, Me and My Cat? by Satoshi Kitamura, The Story of the Little Mole Who Knew it was None of his Business by Werner Holzwarth and Wolf Erlbruch.
Adult Novels: Love in the time of Cholera, Perfume, Rebecca, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, Pigeon, Chronicle of a Death Foretold, The Tunnel, Small Island, The Poisonwood Bible...I could go on, and on...

This is a dark and cynical vision of high school life! I hope yours wasn't too much like this. I like the way you have exaggerated the characters just enough, but not so much that they become too close to their stereotypes. You convey the different points of view very convincingly.

Wow, this is powerful stuff. right from the first line the reader is willing her to succeed and not be caught. This is a fascinating premise and a very sellable one too I'm sure. What's more it is very well written - I have none of my usual quibbles about the writing at all. It's also one of tho... view book

Before I read this I did wonder whether there was room for another time travel story. Then I started to read and realised the answer is YES, when it's this well thought out and well written. In spite of seriously running out of time myself I was drawn back to read chapter after chapter. The futur... view book

This is an interesting angle on a certain period of history, and the way you wrap your story around it is very skilled and convincing. It's not the kind of story I would generally read but it had me gripped from the start, so well done on that! I realised as I read it that I was seeing it as a fil... view book
