So far in 2017 I’ve added 4 books to my TBR pile :
- Dallaire, Roméo – Waiting For First Light: My Ongoing Battle with PTSD – rec’d by Maclean’s Review (via a Metafilter comment)
- Lowachee, Karen – Warchild rec’d by Courtney Schafer – Lady Business
Warchild is dark, intensely character-focused military SF that examines the psychological effects of war and abuse. Definitely not light reading, but not unremittingly brutal; embers of hope and kindness shine amid the darkness. Lowachee handles difficult material in a way that is unflinching but not gratuitous, and makes both protagonist and story compelling.
- Klages, Ellen – Passing strange rec’d by Liz Bourke
This is a gorgeous short novel. I came to it vaguely suspicious of its premises, and finished by loving it unreservedly. It’s amazing. Read it.
- Kirstein, Rosemary – The Outskirter’s secret added because I loved the first one
Since I’ve started tracking my TBR pile I’ve added 122 titles to it. And read 29 leaving 93 still there.
