This February, I’m celebrating the mid-aughts with 3 epic-length works. I bet I’ll need to start reading some shorter books, or I’m going to fall behind on my schedule!
Pandora’s Star and Judas Unchained – Peter Hamilton
One of my real-life friends found these two books in a crate given to him by his mother (reasons unknown). He read and loved these two books, but he found too few people had read them. Upon his rather emphatic suggestion, I took up the cause and hope to talk with him about the books soon. They’re pretty big, and the copies I’m reading are definitely well-loved, so I’m looking forward to seeing how they play out!
Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke
I’ve seen the BBC series of this work, and I was thrilled by it. The TV series was magical, incredibly English, and I was very excited to see there was a book. I requested the book for Christmas, and someone pulled through with a red-cover copy (seen here). This has been on my reading list for a while, and I have no doubt it’ll be amazing if it’s anything like the BBC series.
The Leftovers: Something from YOU?
I love beta reading. If you have something you’d like me to beta read, shoot me a line. I’ll almost definitely purchase a copy of your book when it comes out (caveat is if it’s too sketchy a download or payment method), and I’ll definitely put a plug on this wee little blog for you.
Do you have a published book and a method of purchasing it that isn’t sketch as hell? Post a link in the comments! If I think it looks cool, I’ll put it on my list of books to consider reviewing for next month.
One of my primary goals is to support indie authors who are serious about their craft. I hope to hear from you published and self-published writers soon!
