Weather still topping a hundred! And I’m still reading.
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.
Onion Girl by Charles De Lint. Audiobook. A gritty, even bitter, tale. Excellent audiobook reader.
The Forgotten Sisters (Princess Academy Book 3) by Shannon Hale. I enjoyed. However, Miri seems to have an emotional “reset” button in each book. I’d like her to develop more.
Wonders of the Invisible World by Patricia A. McKillip. Short story collection. Reading before bed. Gives interesting dreams.
The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson. (“Mistborn” Book 1.) Audiobook.
Kamisama Kiss by Julietta Suzuki. Manga. Neat use of Japanese supernatural elements.
Still catching up on magazines.
