The Trading Post
08.12.18. Now that the Trading Post has been operating for exactly a month, we'll be making some changes in response to some problems that have arisen since it's introductions. Comments can no longer be edited after a certain amount of time, so we ask that you post ONE strudel per comment, so that you can hide the comments after it has been traded off. Posting multiple in the same comment causes confusion if you cannot hide just one strudel in particular. ALSO if your strudel is not on the masterlist, please post to the Can't find your strudel? entry on the StrudelCupboard (https://www.deviantart.com/strudelcupboard) to help us find any missing babies! We're super quick about updating!

i really really really want to see more ppl experimenting with their art, esp in the wings of fire fandom (i love u all but please. Please. stop copying realtense) so this is what i'm going to do to encourage that. what is the challenge? draw something out of your comfort zone! if you usually draw w lines, try lineless. if you usually use muted colors, try bright ones. if you usually draw standing poses, do an action pose. throw some cubism in there. go buckwild. genuinely just stretch yourself beyond your comfort zone and what is... well, 'fandom popular'; the ability to diversify your style is a strength, not a hindrance. what are the re

Fairest By:Gail Carson Levine :star::star::star::star::star-empty:
Comment: Th first book I've read where the main character is butt fuck ugly and the prince falls in love with her either way, and the book ends with her still ugly. Freaking awesome. the singing can get annoying but for the most partit makes me want to be part of that world, If i had to choose between being Ella or Aza's friend, totally Aza.

The Phsyck Book of Deliverance Dane By:Katherine Howe :star::star::star::star::star-empty:
Comment: The whole switching history back and forth was a tad boring, but the stuff the book teaches that's historically accurate is awesome. Totally worth reading if your into the whole Salem witch trials.

The Kitchen God's Wife By:Amy Tan :star::star::star::star::star:
Comment: This woman never ceases to amaze me. I felt I understood an entire culture through that one book better than I do my own. I cried and laughed and was excited to finish it. Though it had a slow start, once the mom begins her story....it becomes a mission to not think on it and go back to the book instead of doing work.

With a Tangled Skein By: Piers Anthony :star::star::star::star::star:
Comment:  I would like to say I like it better than On a Pale Horse, but it would be unfair as I like On a Pale Horse's ending unlike this one. But the book as a whole was F'ing awesome. And i know its gay, but Clotho wears yellow.....she's a hufflepuff!!!!!lol don't judge me.

Rumble Fish By: S.E. Hinton :star::star::star::star::star:
Comment: I know this is a bookfor highschool kids and i should move on, but my best friend Michelle loved this author and I had no clue why, so she gave me this tiny paperback she said was her fav. And honestly, its now one of mine as well. I wasn't a fan of the Outsiders but this was so good, a refreshing quick read from all the messy romance novels I usually stick to.

The Host By: Stephenie Meyer :star::star::star::star::star:
Comment: I was entirely skeptical on how i'd feel about aliens and all that stuff but Meyer did it again, turned something that doesn't really inspire fandom in me and wreck my heart with love. It kept me optomistic about how I would feel in the upcomming finally of the Twilight Saga. A must read for anyone within the realm of sanity.

Breaking Dawn By: Stephenie Meyer :star::star::star::star::star:
Comment: Alright, now this book , literally had me bewildered, I lost track of how many times i thought it was gonna end but kept on going when i checked the length. And of course, the series of events just had me in pure awe because even in my sickest fantasies and read fanfiction would i have stumbled on the mind wracking soming of Bella's future. Like seriously. Any one else wonder what happened to Leah? Was she the only one to not get a Happily Ever After?

On a Pale Horse By: Piers Anthony :star::star::star::star::star-empty:
Comment: I really do enjoy books on death as a person and this book is just too genuine. I really liked it and can't wait to read the other incarnations.

:bulletpurple:5/3/2008
The Crow by:Alison Croggon :star::star::star::star::star-empty:
comment: I know, I'm a sucker, I can't help but rate a book from the Pellinor series four stars. It gets a lot more interesting towards the end and isn't as upsettingas it sounds to not have Maerad in first person.

Ironside by:Holly Black :star::star::star::star::star-half:
comment:Yet another third book of a trilogy,lol. I couldn't put this one down and especially since the characters of Valiant show up, I get excited! And slash is also involved.The pairing is cute ^^

A Kiss of Shadows by:Laurell H. Hamilton :star::star::star::star-empty::star-empty:
comment: rated R/PG13 About the unseelie and seelie court so that pretty much kept he boat afloat. I was a bit upset that the two guys I really wanted her to do, she didn't. Oh well maybe in the next one.

Wuthering high by:Cara Lockwood :star::star::star-half::star-empty::star-empty:
comment: the whole literature mayhem is quite awesome but i couldn't really stand the main character's personal thoughts.
