Reading Journal 5

I read a lot of books in 2016. But with everything that went on I got behind with updating you and adding them to my website. So, I want to fill in some of the gaps and pick out some favorites.

The Lunar Chronicles (Cinder, Scarlett, Cress, and Winter) by Marissa Meyer were fantastic. I’ve been reading them again and they’re just as good the second time.

The Mystery of Ireta by Ann McCaffrey. Technically this is two books packaged as one, but it’s really one story. I loved this book because it was everything I wanted in science fiction as a kid but couldn’t find in the library. It’s very much focused on the conflict and world, not individual characters, and for me that was part of the magic.

Dragon Kin (Pern Novel) Anne McCaffrey & Todd McCaffrey. I’ve talked about this one before and I still love it.

Followed by Frost by Charlie N. Holmberg. This was another somewhat unconventional story that resonated with me.

Midnight Crossroad by Charlaine Harris. A mystery featuring a small town as the cast. This was the perfect vacation read.

Dawn of Wonder by Jonathan Renshaw. This is a long and truly epic fantasy featuring a young boy.
