It’s me, your favorite author and book blogger who is never not behind on things! So what am I behind on this time, you might ask?
Books I Recommend and Haven't Reviewed Yet
Between Jobs, by W.R. Gingell – This book is the start of another madcap fantasy series, with a plucky, adaptable heroine and one intriguing vampire love-interest. This book actually convinced me to try learning some Korean!
City of Brass, by S.A. Chakraborty. The start of the Daevabad Trilogy brings fantastic world-building inspired by the medieval Arab world, and multi-faceted characters. Ali’s perspective was my favorite.
The Kingdom of Copper, by S.A. Chakraborty – Things get even darker in Daevabad as multiple plots converge in the city. The perspectives even out in this one. Fair enough, because there’s constant intrigue!
The Theft of Sunlight, by Intisar Khanani – Rae’s story continues from The Bone Knife, cleverly tucked in to Princess Alyrra’s story as the two protagnoists meet. This one reminded me a lot of Alanna: the First Adventure (Tamora Pierce).
What I'm Reading Now
Witches Steeped in Gold, by Ciannon Smart – The prose isn’t as easy to sink into as I’d like, but the world of these island witches (inspired by Jamaican lore) is absolutely fascinating. I keep rooting for one protagonist over the other, and it switches every couple of chapters!
What I'm Writing
Girl of Glass and Fury is still expected this summer, though I haven’t gotten far enough to pick a release date. It’s looking like August right now.
What I'm Revealing
The cover of Girl of Glass and Fury, of course! (If you’re subscribed to my mailing list, you’ve already seen it!) The cover reveal will be this coming Sunday on the blog.
What I'm Blogging About
NaNoWriMo is now five months away! For all those preparing to write their own novels, I’m including some new special feature posts on writing.
With any luck, I’ll also have some of the above books reviewed this month, and perhaps that pesky tatting article I just have to take the pictures for…
What I'm Reading Next
That’s all for now! Have a wonderful June, everybody.
