February was a good month for reading, I completed fourteen more titles. While I’m still craving the desire to reread, and trying to catch up on my review obligations and other titles that have been on my “to read list” for years.
February 2018 Reading List
I really enjoyed the series I continued this month. Elizabeth Moon’s Vatta’s War and her new Vatta’s Peace series are fun. The second book in the Empire Games series by Charles Stross was good too and I’m impatient for the third to be published.
Cory Doctorow’s Walkaway was thought provoking, and I enjoyed switching between the audiobook (narrated by Lisa Renee Pitts, Gabrielle De Cuir, Justine Eyre, Mirron Willis, Will Wheaton, Amber Benson, and Amanda Palmer) and the ebook. I now want to reread Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom, I read it about over decade ago (remember blackberries?).
Short stories are my favourite bedtime reading and help keep me from staying up all night to finish the story. While Pathways almost feels like rereading, each story felt fresh and added to the Tales of Valdemar. I enjoyed Robots vs. Fairies even more than I expected. They are fun stories.
Look for reviews of School for Psychics, Crafting a Patterned Home, Crochet Kaleidoscope, and Engineering for Cats soon.
We’ll see what the month of the lion and lamb brings for my reading. I have several knitting and crochet deadlines so I expect to rely more on audiobooks. Maybe I’ll finally catch up on my favourite podcasts, Clarkesworld Magazine, Escape Pod, PodCastle, and Cast of Wonders.
