My big stack of books gets bigger every month and I can’t stop myself. I mean, books, it’s just books. They can’t hurt me.
Catwings – Ursula K. Le Guin
— Cats with wings. CATS with WINGS. Do I really need to say more?
Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening – Robert Frost Illustrated by Susan Jeffers
— This is a much smaller sized version of the book I loved as a kid, but it’s got new illustrations
The Invention of Hugo Cabret – Brian Selznick
— I tried and tried to find this used, but no one wants to give up their copy! I broke down and had to have it.
The Sour Lemon Score – Richard Stark
— Yeah! Candy book! I love Donald Westlake’s Parker Series. This is #12.
Interworld – Neil Gaiman & Michael Reaves
The Silver Dream – Story by: Neil Gaiman & Michael Reaves, Written by: Michael Reaves & Mallory Reaves
Two Hundred and Twenty-One Baker Streets – ed. David Thomas Moore
— I love alternate Sherlock stories.
Sparrow Hill Road – Seanan McGuire
— Bought this mostly because my father loves Seanan McGuire. I’m giving this one a read before I let him at it though.
Paper Towns – John Green
— Oh, John, how do you make me read outside of my genre? Inquiring minds want to know.
Mr. Churchill’s Secretary – Susan Elia Macneal
Who Fears Death – Nnedi Okorafor
Midnight Riot – Ben Aaronovitch
The Ladies of Grace Adieu – Susanna Clarke
— Sometimes short stories help ease me into the novels of an author. I’ve been trying to get into Strange & Norrell for years. Maybe this will help.
Land of Dreams – James P. Blaylock
— Stories from someone who’s name I vaguely recognize.
Dawn’s Early Light – Pip Ballantine & Tee Morris
— More for my father than me, but I keep meaning to read this series. Especially once I discovered that they’re local authors.
Dark Jenny – Alex Bledsoe
Siege Perilous – Nigel Bennett & P. N. Elrod
— I read their first book together many moons ago. I never knew there was another.
Moxyland – Lauren Beukes
— Cyberpunk, baby.
The Sugar Queen – Sarah Addison Allen
— And this is … more of literary novel than a fantasy, I think. But, I’m going to try it anyway.
Alif the Unseen – G. Willow Wilson
— Picked up because it’s a thriller that’s written by a Muslim woman and set in the middle east. I’m trying to broaden my reading next year.
