I got quite a bit of reading in this past week, including George Mann’s The Spirit Box, which was fine, though not as good as his previous pastiche, The Will of the Dead.
Also finished was the ebook of One Damn Thing After Another by Jodi Taylor, a time-travel novel, and I enjoyed it enough to buy the second in the series, A Symphony of Echoes, the Chronicles of St. Mary’s Book Two. I finished that one Saturday afternoon and liked it almost as much as the fist book. I’ll get to the next in the series after reading the following:
From the library came Constellations volume 3, the recently published collection of short stories from the Liaden Universe of Steve Miller and Sharon Lee. The first two collections were great and I’m reading it while waiting for John Scalzi’s latest, The End of All Things, arrives sometime Tuesday.
Barbara finished Twisted by Andrew E. Kaufman and then read Hold the Dark by William Giraldi, which had a slow start for her, but she said it got better and she was glad she read it.
She then read – just finished – The Shape of Water by Andrea Camilleri, which she liked quite a bit but – and I agree with this as I also recently read it – felt the ending was flat. Still, she liked it well enough that she’s interested in reading another in the series.
How about you? Have you read these books or authors?
