I edited a science fiction novel this month, and it was a fun read. Since that took up the majority of my time, I ended up reading a lot more poetry and shorter books to keep me motivated.

Read This Month

  1. The Princess Saves Herself in This One by Amanda Lovelace
  2. Writing Picture Books by Ann Whitford Paul
  3. Pillow Thoughts by Courtney Peppernell
  4. Foundryside by Robert Jackson Bennett
  5. How to Write a Children’s Book by Katie Davis
  6. Neon Soul by Alexandra Elle
  7. World’s End (Sandman Vol. 8) by Neil Gaiman
  8. Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan
  9. Nomad by Jamie Nash
  10. One Word Kill by Mark Lawrence  

Listen, I’m actually backdating this post. I had completely forgotten to do June as I was busy editing Nomad. So, I read these books. Some were pretty good, others less so. The usual, I think.

Did Not Finish

  • The Magic of Reculce by L.E. Modesitt Jr.
  • Internment by Samira Ahmed

Recluce was dreadfully slow and boring (much like the character), and I didn’t particularly like the constant use of the word “bitch” to describe one of the women. Interment was a great premise and an own-voices story I’d love to read. But the pacing was off, and some of the choices by characters made little sense.

Added to My TBR

  • Imager by L.E. Modesitt Jr.
  • Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo
