Upcoming Reviews

Due to my general laziness (I may have mentioned this previously), I’m several books behind on my reviewing. I started with the intention of reviewing most of the books I read this year.

So an idea of what you can expect forthcoming in the next few weeks:

  • The Bards of Bone Plain by Patricia McKillip
  • Under Heaven by Guy Gavriel Kay
  • Across the Nightingale Floor by Liam Hearn
  • Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynn Jones
  • Red Spikes by Margo Lanagan
  • Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami

I probably won’t review all of the aforementioned books, depending upon time and desire. Since there are some similarities between them in setting and tone, I will likely do a joint review of Under Heaven and Across the Nightingale Floor. Compare and contrast, that sort of thing. I feel almost bad to do that to Nightingale Floor, since it was a solid first novel, but very few novels compare well with Kay’s best works.

Currently Reading:

  • The Wise Man’s Fear by Patrick Rothfuss
  • The Doomsday Book by Connie Willis (audio).

The Rothfuss book will be joining the list of “To Be Reviewed” shortly. Stay tuned.

  3. I'm such a horrible person, I know... I judge books by their cover, but I'm completely interested in reading Red Spikes by Margo Lanagan ;)
