Is being able to take on Ayn Rand really that pressing? WHO do you hang around with anyhow, lol? No, I just mean - I haven't seen a copy of one of her books on a coffee table or on the back of a toilet since the 1980's. What am I reading? er ... a book about a gay kid who discovers he has superpowers. Oh, and another book about a woman who also has superpowers. But she can control the weather. Uh, forget I said anything.

It's not pressing, I just figure I should read an opposing view, and she does have some very stringent supporters, especially amongst the Right. It's a know your opposite thing, I guess, like newleaf says.

Okay, now I want to know what these books are so I can add them to my list.

The first book is "Hero," by Perry Moore. I had some issues with the prose - I dunno, sometimes I find that men who write for teens adopt a sparse style that I kind of find hard to follow. So I had to work to get into it. But the characters were good and ultimately I found it a rewarding read. The second book is "Ill Wind," by Rachel Caine, and so far I'm liking the protagonist and the story.

Okay, um. So I've added them to my wish list. Yay? Yay!
