Reading plans? Disrupted.
Posted March 3, 2016on:
Remember all those plans I had? To pick up The Goblin Emperor, or finally write a review of Hearne’s Hounded or Pinborough’s The Death House?
Yeah, those got completely and thoroughly disrupted. Because, on a whim, I picked this up instead:
and oh good god it is amazing. it’s a bazillion pages long and I am devouring it. Ladies? You’re gonna want to read this. Gents? this is a girly book. Buy it for a lady in your life, she will thank you. it’s sexy, has tons of awesome history stuff, it’s fast paced, and also, very sexy.
This stuff came into the house fairly recently too:
Down and Out in Purgatory, by Tim Powers, out in June from Subterranean Press. It’s Tim Powers, so I know it’s going to be good.
84 Charing Cross Road, Helene Hanff’s famous 1970 account of her twenty year correspondence relationship with a rare book dealer. I haven’t seen the movie, but I know how this story ends. please don’t wreck it in the comments for people who don’t know.
Worst Contact, edited by Hank Davis – a new anthology of mostly older first contact stories. Promises to be entertaining
The Lyre Thief by Jennifer Fallon – out next week from Tor. Neat premise, giggle-worthy character names.
too many books, not enough time, reading plans turned upside down on a lark. the life of a book blogger, yeah?
