FF: Vision Challenge!

Persphone Snags My Mag

This week I’ve been immersed in proofreading, so I haven’t had the vision to spare for as much reading.

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:

Beneath a Sugar Sky by Seanan McGuire.  Audiobook.  Good, although setting dominates characterization and plot.

The Dragon with a Chocolate Heart by Stephanie Burns.  Middle grade novel.  Enjoyable, although Aventurine is very ornery!  Don’t expect a “sweet” read.

In Progress:

A Fountain Filled With Blood by Julie Spencer Fleming.  Audiobook.  This book may include an amateur detective, but it is definitely not what I’d call “cozy.”  Maybe someone needs to coin a new term?


Catching up on magazines.

    I finished Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell. Had some slow bits, but overall I enjoyed it – even the footnotes. Also finished The Family Tabor by Cherise Wolas, a book I won in a Goodreads Giveaway. It is listed as “literary fiction” which is not one of my usual genres. Well written but a bit of a downer. Now I am reading The Forever War by Joe Haldeman. Better late than never.

    That sure doesn’t sound like a “cozy” mystery title!!

    Completed –
    A Book Of Spirits And Thieves by Morgan Rhodes

    The Feed by Nick Clark Windo

    1984 by George Orwell
    I’m not really sure why I decided to read 1984 again except that the universe seemed to point me in that direction. Random conversations or bits of news bringing Big Brother to mind. It’s horrible how relevant that book still is.

    Currently Reading –
    Blood Of The Four by Christopher Golden & Tim Lebbon
    I’m only a few chapters in, so we’ll see…
