Antarctic Tears

Linsdau, Aaron
Very good story of the author's solo expedition to the South Pole. Lots of problems came up, and the author explain how he solved them. I met the author once, so when I saw this book on Amazon I ordered it. The hardback copy, no less!

Stories Of The Raksura Volume 1

Wells, Martha
I enjoyed reading this very much. I REALLY appreciate the short sections so that I could rest! The story of Indigo and Cloud was perhaps my favorite. Little Stone was a crack-up!

A Deadly Education

Novik, Naomi
Lesson one of The Scholomance. So Galadriel is a student at this place called, you guessed it, The Scholomance. It is a school for magicians. With no apparent staff. And no one can leave, mostly, until they graduate. Which isn't a given as there are tons of "mals" trying to kill them. I like the character, I'll be looking forward to the next book.
