As noted last week, I was pointed to Julie Czerneda’s books by the Little Red Reviewer blog, and subsequently started the first of three books in The Clan Chronicles trilogy, Reap the Wild Wind. I finished that, and liked it a lot.
During a the short wait until the next book was available from the library, I read Summer of ’68 – The Season That Changed Baseball– and America by Tim Wendel. I think the author tried to do too much, recounting the baseball season and all of the political happenings in that turbulent year. The result is choppy, but with some interesting parts.
Now I’m about a quarter way into Riders Of The Storm, the second Clan Chronicles book. This one is a little slower to get going than the first book, but already knowing the setting and characters makes it easy to slip into. I’m continuing to read – and enjoy – Czerneda .
Barbara finished John Sandford’s Extreme Prey. She thought is was predictable and not one of the better books in the series, but likes reading Sandford and wouldn’t miss a prey book.
Now she’s reading The Black Hour by Lori Rader-Day, about a college professor, returning after a near-death attack by a student. It is Rader-Day’s first novel, and Barbara says it’s very good so far.
How about you?
