Today she tells us about her Six Books.
I’m currently reading a bunch of mystery, and have been reading the new Hercule Poirot from Sophie Hannah.
I’m really looking forward to the re-release of the Doctrine of Labyrinths books from Katherine Addison!
Yes, although it’s more that I am itching for it to have been long enough since I re-read all the Murderbot books that I can do it again!
Hmmm…I think the closest I get is that when I read China Mieville’s Perdido Street Station, every few pages I’d go “Damn, I wish I’d thought of that!” Just all the weird worldbuilding bits were so fascinating.
Probably Robin McKinley’s The Hero and the Crown. I checked that one out from the library so often that I don’t think anyone else got to read it for about six months.
*laugh* Well, Thornhedge comes out in August, and I think it’s awesome because the main character is anxious and overwhelmed and trying her best and I love her. Also she’s a were-toad. But also I recently had an interviewer on a podcast, who’s read a LOT in-genre say to me “I have read so many retellings of Sleeping Beauty, and I’ve never seen anyone do this particular [spoiler] before. And once I read yours, I thought ‘Why hasn’t anyone done that?’” Which, I mean, originality isn’t the be-all and end-all of everything, but sometimes it’s still nice to get there, even if largely by accident.
But mostly, were-toad.
