I try to keep this blog focused purely on book-related stuff, but… it’s been a grim start to 2017, hasn’t it?
This tweet helped though:
On to other links that have caught my attention:
A good source of book recs for me are award longlists – the RT Book Reviews Award Nominees list was released recently. Despite the title, it’s not just romance titles – their SF/F lists are always worth a read.
Tanya Huff is one of my autobuy authors (THE SILVERED was one of my favourites). She’s also very versatile, switching between SF, high fantasy and urban fantasy with ease, and this Reddit author appreciation thread is an incredibly comprehensive summary of her work.
And finally, this post by KJ Charles titled “Your Politics Are Showing” was smart and on point.
Kate Sherwood’s SACRATI: Sherwood’s books are a bit hit or miss. Some of them really work for me, while others leave me cold. SACRATI is in the former camp, as you may have guessed – it’s a M/M fantasy romance, with a lot more depth and world-building than I expected going in.
