The Fifth Season

Jemisin, N. K.
First book in the The Broken Earth series. Very nice storytelling. Some people have the power to control the earth, like stopping earthquakes and volcanoes. Seem vaguely Earth-like, we shall see what happens!

The Lady Queen

Goldstone, Nancy
The Notorious Reign Of Joanna I. Good historical non-fiction. Very small print in paperback edition. I liked it, but it was a long read. I could only handle a few pages each night. Especially with the small print. I'm not a big fan of historical non-fiction, but I feel smarter for having read this. Even though I can't remember very many of the points raised in the Discussion Questions. The whole German Army destroying the historical records of the period, now THAT was especially interesting!

When Will There Be Good News?

Atkinson, Kate
I finished this morning, now I've nothing to read. Lots of twists and turns. I read the large print edition. It is SO MUCH easier than the paperbacks. I was worth driving to the library three cities away to borrow it. Thank goodness for the county library system!

I was reading page 198 when I said out loud, "Who the hell is Tessa?" Well, now we know.

Quote:

Louise was sure that buried deep inside her, lurking in the murky labyrinth of her heart, there was an incredibly well-behaved person wondering when she would ever be let out. Patrick probably wondered the same thing. -- pg. 321

One Good Turn

Atkinson, Kate
Great book, surprise ending. It took me until page 317 until I realized who Julia was. And I just read the previous book in April!

Quote:

You had to hand it to the Welrod. When they said "silenced", they meant silenced. -- pg. 370
