In honor of MangaBlog’s fourth birthday, I decided to do Brigid a solid and link to her site for a change. I always enjoy her news round-ups and industry commentary, but I like her reviews even better. Brigid has an eye for detail and an ear for language; her reviews are filled with smart observations and smartly worded phrases that make me ache with envy as a fellow writer. She makes it look so easy!
If, like me, you’re a beneficiary of Brigid’s linkblogging largesse, take a minute to follow the links below, which will lead you to some of her best reviews. It seems like the least we can do for someone who’s helped put many of us on the virtual map!
