August was the first month in a long time that I felt really good reading. I read some interesting fiction, most notably the first few books of Benjamin Percy’s Comet Cycle, which were recommended to me by a friend at work.
- A Spindle Splintered by Alix E. Harrow
- The Ninth Metal by Benjamin Percy
- Buffy: the Last Vampire Slayer by Casey Gilly, Joe Jaro and Joana Lafuente (graphic novel)
- The Sugar Thief by Nancy Mauro
- The Unfamiliar Garden by Benjamin Percy
- Warriors: Into the Wild by Erin Hunter
My favourite was definitely The Unfamiliar Garden. I liked how the narrative was tighter than in The Ninth Metal. I liked the characters a lot more. And while I’m not really a horror reader, I enjoyed the horror elements of the plot. The Unfamiliar Garden would definitely make a fantastic movie!
So what have you read over the last month? What was your favourite book?
