The book: I’m about still in the beginning of The Explosionist, which I
stole borrowed from a friend mostly because of how much Leila of Bookshelves of Doom keeps talking about it. I’ve just gotten to the part where the alternate history bits start getting explained– I LOVE alternate history! And the rest of the story is really good as well; there’s already a hefty amount of tension and suspense in there, and I’m getting a bit nervous about what’s going to happen next.
The tea: White Christmas this time, which isn’t perfect for this time of year, but it’s somewhat better than Christmas Eve or Christmas Morning tea. It tastes…good-ish.
Do they go together? Not really. I don’t think it’s anywhere near Christmas in the book, and though the characters are drinking tea it’s not mentioned what kind it is. Seeing as it’s set in an alternative Scotland where England has been taken over by Germany (I think), surely they wouldn’t be drinking Earl Grey or something like that. So what are they drinking? Hm.
