( News flash! )What I Just Finished Reading
I really hit the jackpot in terms of reading this week; the only near-miss was caused by my own lack of planning. *kicks self*A Tyranny of Queens
, by Foz Meadows, the sequel to An Accident of Stars
. I did this book a terrible injustice by not rereading the first one before this sequel. I remembered Safi and Gwen, but lost track of most everyone else. So it was a good read, but not the great and engrossing one it could have been for me. So I'm planning a reread of both. Behind the Throne
and After the Crown
, by K.B. Wagers. If you love Star Wars
but wanted more intrigue, and less explosions, these books are for you! (There are still plenty of explosions, though. YAY EXPLOSIONS.) Non-stop action, fun characterization, unusual South Asian based worldbuilding! I devoted pretty much two whole days of my life to these books last week, and I don't regret it one bit. Third book in the series coming this fall! Traitor's Blade
, by Sebastien De Castell. This is a hilarious, snarky take on The Three Musketeers
, and probably any number of other things. Four big fat thick books in this series! What I Am Currently ReadingKnight's Shadow
, the sequel to Traitor's Blade
, because it was sitting right there at the library. How could I resist? Still a wild ride, but now with even more fierce female characters! What I Am Reading Next
Next up is the Frances Hardinge Festival (which was postponed when Knight's Shadow
showed up) featuring Fly by Night
and its sequel, Fly Trap
. So many hilarious quotes from these books on Goodreads - how could I resist?
I am out of exclamation points, so I will stop now *giggle snort* What are all of you up to today?
