July 2019 What Are You Reading?

I was super excited: I finally got a hold of Sharon Shinn’s Jeweled Fire!  I tried ordering it as a paperback like three years ago online.  I had the first two books in the series as paperbacks, and was hoping to get all of them in the same format.  But a bit after I ordered it, Amazon changed the publication date to really, really far in the future.  They finally cancelled my order back in June, saying that it wasn’t being published in paperback. 😦

So I ended up looking to the library, who was able to get a copy in for me through interlibrary loan.  Of course, the book came way faster than I expected, so I had to rush through the second book, Royal Airs, first! (I read the first book, Troubled Waters, years ago now; I wanted to the other books together, so I held off on reading Royal Airs to the point where I forgot a lot of what happened in the first book).  It took me a bit to get my bearings in Royal Airs, but Shinn did a great job of bringing me back up to speed with the series.

Fiction books:

  • Royal Airs by Sharon Shinn
  • Jeweled Fire by Sharon Shinn

Nonfiction books:

  • none.

My favourite of the two was Jeweled Fire.  If you haven’t read Sharon Shinn’s Elemental Blessings series, I do recommend you give it a go!  I absolutely love the world, and I thought the first book was absolutely fantastic back when I read it. 🙂

So what have you read over the last month?  What was your favourite book?
