We’re back to our regular schedule of reading forecasts and other delicious stuff like that. It has been a while since I did one of these so let me tell you all I have read since I’ve been gone.
- Silver on the Road – Laura Anne Gilman
This was really excellent fantasy and I quite enjoyed it. The mythology is a mix of western combined with indigenous elements.
- Gooseberries by Anton Chekhov (lbc)
This was quintessentially Chekhov. I enjoyed it but didn’t love it.
- Lips Too Chilled by Matsuo Basho (lbc)
I loved this one. Basho’s haikus are so evocative.
- The Thief by Megan Whalen Turner
I don’t know why I have waited so long to read this one.
- The Rook – Daniel O’Malley
This was much better on the second round not that I hated it the first time I read this.
- A Dragon’s Guide to the Care and Feeding of Humans – Laurence Yepp
- Rebel of the Sands – Alwyn Hamilton
I just wrote a review for this one The Book Wars.
- I Hate and I Love – Catullus (lbc)
I didn’t enjoy this. Catullus is not for me.
- The Girl with the Ghost Eyes – M. H. Borosen
This was okay but not something I want to continue.
- Tantony – Ananda Braxton-Smith
So bleak but beautiful.
- Nobody Likes a Goblin – Ben Hatke
It’s Hatke. How could I not love it?
- Through the Woods – Emily Carroll
- Shantaram – Gregory David Roberts
- The Crow – Alison Croggon
I’m reading it veryyy slowly.
- Short Stories for Kids and Teens by Contemporary Shanghai Writers
I’ve only read one of the stories and liked it so I have high hopes.
- Man Tiger – Eka Kurniawan
This is a fascinating piece. I should have more thoughts about it in next week’s forecast.
To Read in the Coming Week:
Whatever I feel like. *cheese*
