Sunday Reading

New school tomorrow! Promises to be a super interesting experience; I am excite.

Finished Reading:

Re-reads both: Iorich and The Phoenix Guards by Steven Brust. I have been a planning, assessing, academic bidding, first pass pages correcting ROBOT for the last week, and in those situations I go straight for something familiar and well-loved - i.e., something by Brust, Bujold, Mahy, or Pamela Dean's Tam Lin.


Currently Reading:

A History of the Wife, Marilyn Yalom. It's still really good I was just distracted.

Code Name Verity Elizabeth Wein. I anticipate a big, spoilery review of this later, but at this stage I am past the halfway point and full of THEORIES. I would hate to spoil for anyone else, so instead I will just make this observation: Usually when reading an Elizabeth Wein novel I have to brace myself against the terrible things that are going to inevitably happen to characters I care about. In this novel the terrible things happen from the very first page! What a relief!

The Shadowed Sun, N. K. Jemisin. I was all, what? Who? What's happening? for about thirty pages. And then I looked it up and realised the book takes place ten years after The Killing Moon. Ohhhhhh. Okay!

The Single Witch's Survival Guide, Mindy Klasky. Deeeeeelightful! Especially love the fake Brit lady.


Acquired:

The Bone Season, Samantha Shannon. Acquired for me by lovely publicist Abba! She is curious to see what I think of it, and thus so am I.
