An Autumn Reading List
In sunny Australia (where it has been raining a whole hell of a lot lately, I won’t lie), it’s the time of year when thoughts turn to snuggling in corners with a good book and a hot beverage. Only thoughts, mind you. The weather won’t turn snuggly enough until Easter or just after.
This autumn, my TBR list includes the usual mix of novels I’ll enjoy and review and those I’ll just enjoy.
Expect Blackthorn Book Tour reviews in April for Chris Coppel’s, Logistics: A Christmas Story and Isobel Blackthorn’s, Emma’s Tapestry.
Chris Coppel is a horror writer with a talent for psychological thrillers. Logistics: A Christmas Story adds a bit of sci-fi to the mix as well as a good powdering of magic Christmas dust. You might think April an odd time for a Christmas story, but I say, ‘Why the hell not?’ My review will be available April 1st (read into that what you may).
Emma’s Tapestry on the other hand is as far as you’re likely to get from a horror story. Isobel Blackthorn can, seemingly, write about just about anything and craft something excellent for her readers. I’ve been looking forward to this historical fiction/memoir since it was first released.
I’ve already finished (and reviewed) the Ink & Sigil Series by Kevin Hearne (see last week’s post). I don’t have anything set for May so I may pick one of my other reads to also review.
The Sentence by Louise Erdrich is off to a good start. Following that, I’ll be choosing between Hannah Kent’s Devotions, Lucy Holland’s Sistersong and, when I’m ready to deep dive into more historical fiction, Min Jin Lee’s Pachinko is waiting in the wings.
That should see me through until winter!
