Literate & Stylish: Lindsay from Daily Doily

LS
The premise of Literate & Stylish is simple, and the post is short but sweet- every Thursday I'll be showcasing a lovely lady and her favorite book. She'll share a few pretty photos showing off her personal style, along with her book of choice, and tell us why she loves it.

Dangerous Angels by Francesca Lia Block

Before there was The Twilight Saga, there was Dangerous Angels: The Weetzie Bat Book Series.  It's been quite a few years since I read these, but I remember them being so magical.  It changed the way I felt about books.  I became a part of Weetzie Bat's enchanting dream world and I didn't want to leave.  It is a gritty, luminous modern day fairy tale about the struggles of growing up, love, lust, pain and heartbreak.  I loved the character's names (My Secret Agent Lover Man & Witch Baby) and unique language (lanky lizards!).  I'm looking forward to reading it again.  Love is a dangerous angel...

  4. If you love the characters and language of Block, you must read Terry Pratchett's "The Wee Free Men"!

  5. (Though I should note you won't find romance, simply a young girl's dream / fairy world.)

  8. Aww, FLB lovin'! The Dangerous Angels series had a profound effect on my world view... searching for the wonder and whimsy in everything. (And one of these days I'm going to "Shangri-L.A." and getting myself an Oki-dog!)
