Feb-March 2014

Books read in February and March:

  1. The Dead and the Gone. Susan Pfeffer.
  2. The Encyclopedia of the Dog. Bruce Fogle.
  3. A Natural History of Dragons: A Memoir by Lady Trent. Marie Brennan.
  4. Critters of Texas: Pocket Guide. Anne E. McCarthy.

I feel like this list is incomplete. Maybe because I still have two chapters left out of Kalpa Imperial: The Greatest Empire that Never Was by Angélica Gorodischer, maybe because I’m half way through Sum: Forty Tales from the Afterlives by David Eagleman. Maybe the list is shorter than expected because I had my PhD defense in mid-February, I moved from one continent to another in early March, and have been settling in since then. Maybe because I watched all five seasons of Fringe while knitting a throw blanket. Maybe because of a lot of different things.

But I have a library card for the public library here in San Antonio and I have a number of books checked out already. With a bit of patience and persistence, maybe my appetite for reading will grow again.

      I liked it enough that as soon as I realised it was a sequel and that the second book just came out I jumped on the queue for it at the public library! Part of me wishes that it were all one long stand-alone books, but it seems like everything has to be a series these days, at least in the fantasy genre. Marie Brennan sets it in another world that’s similar to 19th century Europe; if she had set it in our world, it almost could have worked alongside the Temeraire novels by Naomi Novik or Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell by Susanna Clarke.
