So, for this year I’m participating in two Book Clubs. We’ll see how that goes in reading and reviewing/discussing two books every month around all the other stuff I always want to do and actually do 😀
At the moment I’m reading Joanne Harris’ Runemarks, which I’m loving so far. I’m assuming this is going as a Young Adult book based on the cover (metallic shiny edges and such), the age of the protag (14) and the general writing style. It is an easy read, but it has a fascinating magic system based on Norse runes with a matching world building based on Norse mythology with their Gods and the 9 levels of the world and such. I read Harris is writing a sequel , I’m already sold on it 😀
The next books to be read will be Elizabeth Bear‘s Dust and N.K. Jemisin‘s The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms. Both for the aforementioned Book Clubs. If you’re interested you can stay up to date on the reviews/discussions as I post them since I will be linking them from the Book Club page as well (see above).
Since I also have the sequel to Dust still unread I’ll probably be reading Dust second, so I can read Chill right after it. And since the third part in the trilogy is coming out in February, I’ll probably space it out in such a way that when I finish Chill, I can order Grail right after.
Others in the planning for January are the last two Euro 5 books I have left.
