The Lie Tree by Frances Hardinge

One of the best books I’ve read this year! The plot is rich, clever and original until the very last page, full of adventure, mystery and great character development.

An aspect I particularly loved: the story is set in the 19th century and Faith, the young protagonist, finds herself in a society hostile to intelligent and ambitious women. She wants to become a scientist and she thinks that every other woman around her (above all, her mother) is weak and has given up to men. But as the story unravels, every characters gains a lot depth, and many female characters reveals themselves as strong and independent in their own ways. Very brilliant book, I strongly recommend it to everyone (even if, like me, you’re not used to YA)!

(In the pictures: my Italian hardback edition.)

MYSTERY STORY TIME

So there was a single, solitary kiwi on our counter in the kitchen.

And I decided to make fun of my roommate for it, because who buys one, single, solitary kiwi? So I asked her that.

Roommate: I didn’t buy a kiwi.

Me: This isn’t your kiwi?

Roommate: No?

Me: But this isn’t my kiwi.

Roommate: That kiwi was there when I got home.

Me: I don’t even eat kiwi!

As you can see, it’s a real kiwi. Here it is, on my counter, giving away nothing.

But I was still confused as to where it came from. Did one of us accidentally buy a kiwi at the store? 

So I looked up the Kiwiny company to figure out which stores it’s sold at, to see which one of us might have bought it, since we tend to use different grocery stores.

Kiwiny doesn’t have American retailers.

There is literally no reason for this kiwi to be in my kitchen.

UPDATE:

lots of people have been asking me if I ever figured out where the kiwi came from. So to provide an update on the magical kiwi … one day I took a nap and had a dream about those creepy spiders that hide in bananas and I thought like oh my god this kiwi is gonna be full of spiders. So I woke up and promptly put the kiwi in a ziploc bag. To contain the dream spiders.

The kiwi sat on the counter for a few days, then got moved to the top of the fridge to get it out of the way. It sat there for a couple weeks. It never appeared to go bad? I did eventually throw it out, just because I was confused about it and neither of us were ever going to eat the kiwi.

Never found out why the kiwi was in my kitchen. I guess we’ll never know.

UPDATE UPDATE:

Kiwiny is following me on twitter now.

A bit late now but here’s something for the Mystery Twins’ birthday! It also happens to coincide with my country’s Independence Day hahahaha

This is Stan’s newest sweater:

Maybe it’s the first time the Pines family is reunited back at the Shack since that summer (dodgy video calls on an adventure ship can only do so much).

the consensus seems to be that reigen gets the white cloak so I try to build smthing with the in-game design

s kinda weird tbh

On Thursday and Friday, I road tripped up to Redwood National Park and the surrounding areas with my good buddy Adam. Being in the presence of some of the tallest and oldest trees in the world is incredibly humbling! Some of the trees we saw were well over 330 feet (100 meters) tall. Also, taking a gondola ride through a redwood forest was one of the cooler things I’ve ever done.
