Somehow I spent all today thinking it was Tuesday, and so, not that it is technically Thursday where I am, I may as well make a Wednesday book post.

Books read:

James S. A. Corey, Leviathan Wakes
Max Gladstone, Three Parts Dead
Max Gladstone, Two Serpents Rise
Marjorie Liu and Sana Takeda, Monstress: Awakening
G. Willow Wilson, Ms. Marvel Vol 3
G. Willow Wilson, Ms. Marvel Vol 4
Fran Wilde, The Jewel and Her Lapidiary

Currently reading:

Judith Merril, The Merril Theory of Lit'ry Criticism
Ben Aaronovitch, The Rivers of London

Up next:

The next volumes in the Expanse and Peter Grant series, because i want to read at least two volumes in each of the Hugo nominated series.

Also, I should catch up on the graphic novel series Saga - I read volume 3 when it was nominated, and I should read volumes 4 and 5 before I read volume 6, which was nominated this year. I'm waiting to see which of the nominated graphic novels will be in the Hugo voters packet, hoping not to have to buy them all.

I also still have to read Traveler of Worlds: Conversations with Robert Silverberg, by Robert Silverberg and Alvaro Zinos-Amaro. And i'm going to take another stab at Ada Palmer's Too Like the Lightning. I tried to read it earlier in the year and bounced off hard - I simply could not get into the story or the characters. But it's been so well received I should give it another shot.

And that will finish up the Hugo reading. Other hooks I hope to get around to soon are The Winged Histories by Sofia Samatar, Wall of Storms by Ken Liu, Core of the Sun by Johanna Sinisalo, Penric's Mission by Lois McMaster Bujold and a host of other things - including, I think, more of the October Daye novels, the Expanse novels, the Craft Sequence novels and maybe the Peter Grant novels.

So many books, so little time. My ipad is full of books I want to read and haven't had the time to.
