Busy time continues, so I’ve been “reading” more via audio, but I can’t give up stories!
For those of you new to this… The Friday Fragments feature lists of what I’ve read over the past week. They are not meant to be a recommendation list. If you’re interested in a not-at-all-inclusive list, you can look on my website.
This is not a book review column. It’s just a list with, maybe, a few opinions tossed in.
Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater. Third in the excellent “Raven Boys” series. This one lived up to the first two. There will be a fourth. I’m glad.
The Warrior’s Apprentice by Lois McMaster Bujold. Audiobook. I wish I’d read this sooner! The excerpts I had read before didn’t give the mixture of humor and drama a fair showing. There were times Jim and I laughed out loud – even while anxiously waiting for the next twist. I’ll be listening to more.
The Land of Dreams by Vidar Sunstol, translated from Norwegian by Tiina Nunnally. Just started. The deceptively slow first few pages segues into a fascinating puzzle: Why are two men stark naked (except for matching running shoes) on the shores of Lake Superior. And why is one of these men violently dead?
The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan. Audiobook. Just started.
A variety of magazine articles, feeding the Muse for a potential future project.
