I put a poll up on twitter a couple weeks ago. Below are the results. Thank you to everyone who answered. I also got some very cool/ funny/ thoughtful comments. I thought I’d expand it into a post using some anecdotes from my reads of the past week.
Finishing a Good Book
I finished A Boy and His Dog at the End of the World last week. It is awesome. Period. No spoilers (Fletcher requests it before the start of his narrative.) But I had a great feeling after finishing that book. It includes an epic journey, a coming of age, and a voice that I won’t soon forget… full review scheduled for Thursday. But it was the epitome of “Finishing a Good Book.”
Starting a New Book
I normally read my ARCs in order, and next up was Middlegame by Seanan McGuire. It hits on all the points on the anticipated read: a well-known author, a hyped new book, a genre I’ve been meaning to get into more (don’t know exactly how to categorize it, maybe contemporary urban fantasy?)… And from the moment I hit the first epigraph, I felt a good connection with the writing. Excellent turns of phrase and description of characters in the first couple chapters. I’m excited to keep reading!
