I apologise for being a day late with this, but it was my birthday yesterday, and also America decided to set itself on fire.
What I just finished reading
Caliban’s War by James S A Corey – So much better than the first one. The problems I had with the first one didn’t appear in this one at all. And Avrasala was delightful. Granted, a lot of what I liked about this one was building on what the first one set up, so I wouldn’t advise people starting with this one.
Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott – It feels like everyone recommends this one. Meh. As a writing guide, no. As a memoir about life as a writer, sure.
The Hanging Tree by Ben Aaronovitch – I feel like I waited forever for this. It was awesome. Review to come.
What I’m reading now
Half a dozen space operas (I’m really feeling space operas right now), a thus far underwhelming urban fantasy, and a book about book proposals I have out from the library.
What I’m reading next
I’m putting myself on a book buying diet. I’m not allowed to acquire any new books until I make a serious dent in the backlog.
