Graceling: The Book Party!

Planning your own book group/get-together for Graceling? Here are some party ideas from author Kristin Cashore.

Invite: Design something that incorporate swords, daggers, and two-colored eyes.

Food: Hm. Go out and catch your own mountain lion? No? How about homemade bread, cheese, and fresh fruit.

Décor: Two-colored eyeshadow and medieval garb.

Movies: Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon; Buffy the Vampire Slayer (okay, I'm cheating, that’s a TV show, not a movie - but it is disturbingly hard to find movie girls who are both kick-ass and self-reliant!); Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind (an anime movie by Hayao Miyazaki)

This would be a cool Halloween party, right?

BtVS questions for Kristin: Favorite season? Favorite characters?

I'm only on Season 4, Little Willow, and must say I LOVED Season 2. Evil Angel is truly frightening! And I love SPIKE. And understand that there's more to come with him?
