Last week I started re-reading John Maddox Roberts’ excellent SPQR mystery series. This week, I kept going and probably would still be going if a few library books hadn’t come in!
For those of you just discovering this feature, the Friday Fragments lists what I’ve read over the past week. Most of the time I don’t include details of either short fiction (unless part of a book-length collection) or magazine articles.
The Fragments are not meant to be a recommendation list. If you’re interested in a not-at-all-inclusive recommendation list, you can look on my website under Neat Stuff.
Once again, this is not a book review column. It’s just a list with, maybe, a bit of description or a few opinions tossed in.
The Catiline Conspiracy by John Maddox Roberts. Second SPQR novel.
The Sacrilege by John Maddox Roberts. Third SPQR novel.
The Temple of the Muses by John Maddox Roberts. Fourth SPQR novel.
Saturnalia by John Maddox Roberts. Fifth SPQR novel. Obviously, I find these addictive!
Magnus Chase and the Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan. Audiobook. Pretty fun. I’ll definitely keep an eye open for the sequel.
The Storybook of Legends “Ever After High #1.” Just started. I mentioned this series in my WW about Action Figures a few weeks ago.
Of Dice and Men by David M. Ewalt. “The Story of Dungeons & Dragons and the People Who Play It.” I saw this on the library shelf and was tempted. I haven’t played D&D is about twenty years, but it’s where I started as a tabletop RPG player, a hobby I pursue to this day.
Origami books. I am SO challenged by the patterns….
