As I mentioned yesterday, my weekend was spent reading and wow did I finish some good books. Select the title if you want to read more of my thoughts on the books, spoiler-free of course. Here are the three I read:
- Storm Front by Jim Butcher. This was my first book for the Once Upon a Time Challenge. I admit I’ve always skipped over the sci-fi section in the bookstores, but I’m glad about finally exploring this genre. I think I can already tell I will like the Urban Fantasy sub-genre. I mean, I already enjoy stories of vampires so why not add some wizards, demons and faeries to the mix.
- Consequences of Sin by Clare Langley-Hawthorne. I pretty much started and finished this one in a day. It reminded me a bit of the Maisie Dobbs books which I love. The only bad thing about this book is now the wait for the second in the series which won’t be out until April 2008.
- The Beautiful Things That Heaven Bears by Dinaw Mengestu. A beautiful story of the immigrant experience in America. It’s a story about losing a country and trying to find a sense of place in a new world.
So now I’m off to find the next good reads.
