FF: Appreciated Your Suggestions

This Looks Interesting…

Thanks for the suggestions last week.  I have a list!

For those of you just discovering this part of my blog, 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 magazines.

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.

What are you reading?

Recently Completed:

Implanted by Lauren Teffeau.  ARC of a forthcoming August release.  Cyberpunk where the cyber isn’t just window-dressing but it integral to an increasingly complex plot.

The Skyliners  by Louis L’amour.

In Progress:

My Wicked Half Sister by E.M. Tippetts.  This series is really hard to classify.  The first book was more or less romance.  The next couple were CSI mysteries.  This one is what anime/manga would call “slice of life.”  Suffice to say, I’ve enjoyed them all.

The Easter Egg Murders by Patricia Smith Wood.  I usually shy from “cozys” with cute titles, but I know the author and she has lots of grit so I’m giving her first a try.

In the Bleak Midwinter by Julie Spencer Fleming.  Audiobook.  A WW reader recommendation.  So far good characterization and setting.

Also:

I’ve been re-reading one of my favorite manga before bed.  Gives me really odd dreams.

    I am reading Artemis by Andy Weir because I loved The Martian, and The Dispossessed by Ursula K. Le Guin because I read about it in one of your posts. Thank YOU for the suggestion!

    My copy of Daybreakers by Louis L’amour has arrived! I’m excited to start my first western as soon as I finish rereading The Dragon of Despair. Thanks for the recommendation.

    It’s been a busy week. I can tell because I’ve only read 1 3/4 books.

    Completed –
    The Grace Of Kings by Ken Liu

    Currently Reading –
    The Wall Of Storms by Ken Liu

    These are books #1 and #2 of The Dandelion Dynasty. I’m really enjoying the story! I keep having to stop myself from skimming over to find out what’s going to happen.😄 I here there’s going to be a third book at some time in the future.
    I guess Firekeeper will have company in the “can’t wait for the new book” area of my brain.📚📖💞
