Is it really mid-October already? This autumn is just FLYING by and it only just got that crisp, cool-weather feel like three days ago. Well, I’ll enjoy it while I can!
Between the latest (and maybe LAST! *SQUEE!*) round of edits for my forthcoming novel, hospital stays, and you know, life in general, reading has fallen a bit on my priority list. Nevertheless, I’ve persisted and managed to find some quality kindle time. Check out my recent, current, and upcoming reads!
Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card
This book, man. It deserves a full review, but I’ll say this for now- one of the best books I read this year.
I am Legend by Richard Matheson
The film based on the novel bears very little resemblance to the written work, challenging my many wrong assumptions. I appreciated the poignancy the statement, “I am legend” contained in the novel (it had none of the punch in the film, that’s for sure), but I did still find some difficulties with it. Overall, however, I am Legend appears to be a seminal work in modern post-apocalyptic/horror and you’d be remiss to skip it.
Mimi of the Nowhere by Michael Kilman
Working through this short but fascinating piece of speculative sci-fi. Really cool premise so far and I’m interested to see where it goes.
A Threat of Shadows by JA Andrews
OK, when I say, “Currently Reading,” for this one, it means I literally just opened the first page. Definitely had to pick this one up since I’ve continually heard great things about the book and the author. I’ll be sure to let you know!
To Be Read
I haven’t made my decision yet, but here are my top options. I like to rotate classics, new/indie authors, and established authors, so it looks like I’m due for a classic. Any suggestions?
