You like new books? Me too!

Posted on: August 18, 2018

Not much to say except YAY new books!

Also, sorry the blog has been quiet lately.  Lots of day jobbery happening (don’t worry all good stuff, just a LOT of it), not enough reading/writing happening.  such is life.

 

so let’s take a few minutes to celebrate some new goodies!

 

Foundryside by Robert Jackson Bennett drops on Aug 21st.  I’ll have a review up in a few days, so until then all I can say is holy shit is this book good! And well, I wrote a very Andrea review. You’ll see.

 

Some lovely ARCs that recently arrived from Tachyon:

How to Fracture a Fairy Tale is approximately a gazillion fairy tale retellings from the master of story, Jane Yolen. I am not entire sure what Lavie Tidhar’s Unholy Land is, but it looks very interesting.

 

And believe it or not I’ve been trying to read some non-fiction lately too!

So far, How to Create a Mind is over my head, but what I am understanding out of it, I am enjoying. the mistake I’m making is trying to read this entire book at once. it is short, but very, very dense. I need to take it one chapter at a time, and reread the chapter over and over again until I understand it.

Never Split the Difference is the easiest business book I’ve ever read. Chris Voss was the FBI’s lead hostage negotiator. Take those skills, and negotiate at work! with your kids! with your kids teachers!  the book mostly talks about empathy and active listening.  Surprisingly compelling read.

 

what have you been reading lately?

I might need to trade you for that negotiation book. If you are into negotiation books now, I have a few (some books on cognition, too).

Read several Robert Jackson Bennett novels and Have liked them all. This looks good. Also the Lavie Tidhar also looks good.
Haven’t read much SF/F lately, mostly crime novels and catching up with some short fiction in Asimovs and F&SF.

some of the books reviewed here were free ARCs supplied by publishers/authors/other groups. Some of the books here I got from the library. the rest I *gasp!* actually paid for. I'll do my best to let you know what's what.
