The end of the year is fast approaching, and everyone’s looking forward to telling 2020 goodbye. But before we get to that moment, here’s a small book haul for the end of the year.
DRAGON WING by Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman
This series might be the next bunch I buddy-read with Emily at Embuhleeliest, my buddy-reader in all this Robin Hobb… and maybe Margaret Weis.
PLAYING IN THE DARK: WHITENESS AND THE LITERARY IMAGINATION by Toni Morrison
I saw this thin book in the store, read the back, and could not leave without it.
E-Books & Audio
Tikka Chance on Me by Suleikha Snyder
Romance short story about a young Indian-American woman who gets involved with the leader of a local biker gang. I enjoyed the story although it made my cynical side come out. (See my review here.)
An Embarrassment of Witches by Sophie Goldstein (illus.) & Jenn Jordan
YA fantasy graphic novel about life after college for two young women: one who’s still searching for a direction and her friend who is buckling under the pressure of her internship. It was a fun read.
Adulthood Is a Myth by Sarah Andersen
Comic book about different moments in Andersen’s life that we can all relate to. I’ll need to reread it because I read it so fast.
Hollowpox: The Hunt for Morrigan Crow and WUNDERSMITH: THE CALLING OF MORRIGAN CROW by Jessica Townsend
These are the third and second books in the Nevermoor series, a middle grade fantasy series about a supposedly unlucky girl who gets swept away to a different world, where she learns she’s very special. I listened to Wundersmith on audio to prep myself for Hollowpox, which I enjoyed.
Truth or Beard by Penny Reid
First novel in the Winston Brothers romance series. It was okay.
Beneath the Sugar Sky and In an Absent Dream by Seanan McGuire
These are the third and fourth novellas in the Wayward Children series, YA fantasy series. I got them in early December when Tor was allowing free downloads of all the novellas in the series.
