It’s been a crazy month for reading 📚! I’ve really been glued to a book all the time and my page count really shows it. Brandon Sanderson is in the lead with the highest page count. Most books by one author would go to Lindsay Buroker with 5. Genre would probably be fantasy or science fiction, although I’ve read some really good thrillers this month.
My least favorite book was probably The Naming. Just too much exposition, too predictable. My favorite would be one of the Brandon Sanderson books, but I can’t decide which one. Altogether a really good month!
I’ve gotten a little behind on my reviews. Sorry about that! I’ve still been reading lots, but sometimes I just don’t know where to start with a review because I have so much to say. Instead, I just put that one aside until later.
I need some help! Tell me which one to review next and I’ll get onto that one:
Conspiracy and Blood & Betrayal, both by Lindsay Buroker – both steampunk
Assassin’s Fate by Robin Hobb – fantasy
Sixth of the Dusk by Brandon Sanderson – fantasy-ish
Matters Arising from the Identification of the Body by Simon Petrie – mystery/sci-fi
Wheat Belly by Dr. William Davis – non-fiction
The Innocent Flower by Charlotte Armstrong – mystery
The Fifth Doll by Charlie N. Holmberg – YA fantasy
A Night Divided by Jennifer A. Nielsen – MG historical fiction
If no one votes, I’ll probably review the Simon Petrie book next. Now maybe I need some help on what to read next! My review pile is mounting up and I’m getting kinda stressed about it.
I am so looking forward to this weekend. I’ve been sick for what feels like ages and I’m *finally* feeling better, so I am hoping to get out of the house this weekend. I’m planning to go to the library and claim some of my prizes from the summer reading program and turn in my overdue books. Then I’m taking my husband out for a treat on Saturday. Sunday I might go visit my sister and Monday is a holiday here in Utah so we are planning a picnic or something.
Then I have a few reviews to post. I just finished Conspiracy by Lindsay Buroker. I also have two books by Robin Hobb that I haven’t reviewed, but I don’t even know where to begin! So many feels! I downloaded the 3rd in the trilogy, but I might not start it until Sunday or else I’d just stay indoors all day and read. (And that would be bad because….)
Hope you have a good weekend and happy reading!
Looking for a nice cold read full of excitement? Lindsay Buroker’s Flash Gold has got everything you’re looking for. The main character Kali McAlister is ready to enter her dogless sled in a competition for a nice financial prize that will help her move away from Moose Hollow, into someplace where no one has ever heard of her or her father, where she can get a fresh start as an inventor. Too bad everyone else in the race is out to get her. What she could use is a partner.
Enter Cedar, a quiet stranger who wants to team up. Kali doesn’t want to trust him, but she needs the help, and he seems to know what he’s doing. Plus he’s handy with a rifle, so she takes him on. Good thing, too, since this race is going to be anything but fair.
This is a novella and a quick fast-paced read, but I couldn’t wait to read the next one in the series! It was free for the Kindle and I’m dying to know what happens next. I gotta say, I’m a sucker for steampunk and add in the setting, and I’m sold!
