I'm participating in two link-ups with this post. The first is Anne's "52 Pick-Up" this week, which is featuring Sapphire blue. Go say hi (here)!
And, since reading is a passion of mine (and my goal for 2016 is to read more than 2015), I'm always happy to join in with Gracey's "Literary Stylings" (go here!).
I read 5 books in January, but one was a loaner from Stuart at work, so I have returned that.
I was blown away by Miranda July's book of short stories, however. I know her from her films (in particular, "You, Me and Everyone We Know" which makes me want to cry in a happy way and write poetry), and didn't even know she's written multiple books. I now need more of her stuff, because I only have 20 books on/beside/toppling over off my nightstand. Loved these bizarre, strange and different short stories. Also, short stories = low commitment. You don't have to read a whole book.
These following two suffered in comparison to the first two. "The Diamond Conspiracy" is the 4th? book in the ongoing steampunk-y adventure series by Pip Ballantine & Tee Morris, and the series is getting weaker as it goes on. Every Victorian horror trope is dragged out: Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Frankenstein and his monster, fearless female and timid bookish (but handsome and manly) men. Sigh. End the damned series and write something new and original.
