Mini Update Sticky Post: March 5th, 2018 I have just finished a collection of short fiction by indigenous writer Dawn Dumont, Glass Beads, and I am looking forward to reading one of her novels now. I was wallowing a little in Ann Leckie’s Ancillary Justice, the first in her sci-fi trilogy, but now I can hardly put down the sequel, Ancillary Sword. In short bursts, I am enjoying Kathleen Addison’s The Goblin Emperor, which is the first fantasy novel I’ve read in a couple of years: the cast of characters will not intimidate me! I’ve finished my first book for Kinna’s Reading Africa Challenge, Tsitsi Dangarembga’s The Book of Not (which carries along the story begun in Nervous Conditions) and am set to choose the next (sometimes the choosing is the best part).
And I enjoyed the diverse choices on the Toronto Book Awards shortlist, as well as the Writers’ Trust shortlist. (Talk of this autumn’s prizelist and event reading — here!)
My reading projects are still unfolding.
Exploring my grandmother’s copies of Mazo de la Roche’s Jalna stories.
How about you: what are you reading these days, and what are you looking forward to reading soon?
