The holiday season has just gotten more complicated with the arrival of the mass market proofs for Artemis Awakening. But that’s proofing, not reading…
Wondering what the FF is about? 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.
The Land of Dreams by Vidar Sunstol, translated from Norwegian by Tiina Nunnally. I seriously loved this book. It’s part detective story, part family story, part… Is it a ghost story, or is our stressed cop going nuts? Although the first book in the “Minnesota Trilogy,” I felt it stood well on its own. I’m definitely reading book two. Highly recommended.
The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan. Audiobook. I enjoyed this conclusion to the second story arc. Riordan does a good job with his very large cast. The gods are still jerks…
Sixth Grave on the Edge by Darynda Jones. Audiobook. So far no rough sex in this one. Yay! Supernatural elements are becoming more important, as are character interactions. Stronger, I think, than the previous two in the series.
Nobody’s Damsel by E.M. Tippets. What happens after “happily ever after”? Well, when the courtship is whirlwind, a lot of past history still needs to be resolved. Throw in an ugly kidnapping to awaken our protagonist’s worst memories and you have the ingredients for a gripping tale.
Well, those proofs are looming over my head. I’d rather read cookie recipes!
