Hey guys! It’s been a good week for me, with plenty of reading! And Record of a Spaceborn Few is out in paperback, so I’ve snapped that up, obviously!
Books read this week:
Reviews posted this week:
–Fayke Newes, by Derek Taylor. Not a bad history of the press vs people in power, but not properly sourced and thus rather hypocritical. 3/5 stars
–The Bell at Sealey Head, by Patricia McKillip. Beautifully written fantasy, as ever, with only a couple of hitches. 4/5 stars
–The Case of the Murdered Muckraker, by Carola Dunn. Very different setting and feel for Daisy; includes an epic cross-country plane chase. 3/5 stars
–The Goblin Emperor, by Katherine Addison. Yep, again. What can I say? 5/5 stars
–Pale Rider, by Laura Spinney. A good history of the 1918 flu pandemic. 4/5 stars
–My Sister, the Serial Killer, by Oyinkan Braithwaite. This felt kind of predictable for me? Like most of it was just following an obvious path. The ending didn’t exactly surprise me, but it was nicely done. 2/5 stars
–Space Opera, by Catherynne M. Valente. Not a winner for me. Holy cow, I am tired of the TORRENT OF GLITTER just thinking about it. 1/5 stars
–WWW Wednesday. The usual weekly update!
Out and about:
–NEAT science: ‘Blue-blooded.‘ Ever wanted to know how copper-based blood works? Tahdah!
That’s it for the week! How’s everyone else been doing? Reading anything good?
