Ok so I just realised this was supposed to be done yesterday, what with it being the WWW Wednesday update and all. I never said I was the most organised book blogger… Anyway, better late than never, here’s what I’ve been reading this past week.
Recently Finished: A DEAD DJINN IN CAIRO by P. Djèlí Clark
This was a delightful short story and my first P. Djèlí Clark read. I only heard of him fairly recently actually, when a few folks were getting excited about his upcoming release Ring Shout. A DEAD DJINN IN CAIRO is a short steampunk mystery set in an alternate early 20th century Egypt. I actually just posted my review today, go take a look.
Currently Reading: FOUNDRYSIDE by Robert Jackson Bennett
Everyone has been recommending I read this book for months now and I’ve finally picked it up for Wyrd & Wonder. It came up when I was asking for book recommendations featuring hard magic systems (scriving is basically magical coding), industrial fantasy (Tevanne is an industrial city of foundries and manufactories) and just generally good books I need to read. I’m only a couple of chapters in right now but hoping to enjoy this one after all the hype!
Next Read: KINGS OF THE WYLD by Nicholas Eames
Again, I’m a mood reader, so this is tentative, but it’s also on my Wyrd & Wonder TBR and it sounds like a whole bunch of fun. Think old dad rock band gets back together for one last tour, except the dad rock band is a party of mercenaries long past their glory days. It sounds like a blast and I’m looking forward to just having a fun read without too much baggage.
