How in the world are we in mid-November already? It feels like only yesterday that I was sweltering in the Heatwave of 2018, and now the heating is on, Christmas adverts are appearing on telly… and it’s been almost three months since my last post.
My blog hiatus has been slightly inadvertent in that I’ve managed to lose the habit of blogging, so this post is really more about me trying to remind myself that posting something can be a matter of minutes, not a couple of hours.
So a couple of tor.com posts I enjoyed:
I read and re-read Tamora Pierce’s Alanna books in my teenage years (and beyond!), and I really enjoyed this take on her books: Revisiting Tamora Pierce’s Tortall as a Mother of a Daughter
KJ Charles is one of my autobuy authors, and this post made me want to re-read Simon Feximal. Great recs in the comments too.
Finally for UK readers – the newest Kindle Paperwhite is on sale for the next week (£30 off). I have been debating getting an Oasis for ever, but could never quite justify the price tag. So I caved and bought a new Paperwhite (my current one is years old, so I expect to be suitably wowed by this one – will report back).
