Okay, so I know I’ve basically been the worst blogger ever just reading book after book and not reviewing any of them. I’m sorry. I apologize. This probably will not change significantly in the future, so don’t get disappointed with more of the same. Forewarned is forearmed.
This is not a review either. What it will be is a list of things that are black, because I have begun reading an extremely popular fantasy series (with an associated premium cable show) in which every black thing is “black as onyx.” THERE ARE OTHER BLACK THINGS, author! Promise.
1. A crow’s wing.
2. A lawyer’s/banker’s/politician’s heart
4. Midnight at new moon
8. A miner’s lungs
9. Sorrow (figuratively speaking. Which writers do, you know.)
10. A raven’s eye
12. Oil (bonus points if something is as black and crude as oil)
13. An orca’s hide
15. An eel
16. Squid ink
17. A hanged man’s tongue (I know that’s super gross, but sometime’s that’s called for!)
18. A sea urchin
19. A scorpion
23. Cersei’s virtue
What other black things can you think of? The more unexpected the better! Tell me in the comments 🙂
