Hello again. It’s a new month, we’re well into autumn, and (hopefully) you’re onto a good new book or two. This is your chance to tell us all about what you’re reading, what you’ve just finished reading, or what you will be reading this month. And if you’re a writer, take the time to tell me about your book.
I’ll be featuring an interview with new author, Rae Elliot, sometime in the next few weeks, as well as introducing her new book to you. If you’d like your work featured in the future let me know.
Currently I’m reading two books. Or rather, reading one book and listening to the other. The first I’d like to mention is an Advanced Reading Copy (or ARC to the initiated) of Elizabeth Haydon’s The Tree of Water, the fourth adventure in her acclaimed young adult fantasy series, The Lost Journals of Ven Polypheme. Odd enough this is my first time receiving an ARC of anything, so it’s exciting, but the drawback is I’ve yet to read the previous three novels. So far I’ve found that it’s easy to jump into and I’m having a fun time. This book will be released on October 28th.
And I’m currently listening to Brent Weeks’ The Black Prism, the first in the Lightbringer fantasy series. I’m having a blast with it. The best way I can describe the series in a nutshell is Avatar: The Last Airbender mixed in with Green Lantern. It’s a very unique book. I’ll be reviewing both books soon.
After I finish, I plan to give the fourth and latest Expanse book a listen, Cibola Burn, by James S.A. Corey. And then I’ll go right back into the Lightbringer series, with The Blinding Knife. And then perhaps I’ll give Patrick Rothfuss’ upcoming novella, The Slow Regard of Silent Things, some of my attention.
