It will surprise no one to learn that the Book of the Month is Fonda Lee’s Jade Legacy, but if I limit myself to books that are actually available to the general public, I’ll go with Vita Nostra.
Because it is Goddamned August already, somehow. Book of the Month is going to be Savage Bounty.
Book of the Month is going to be The House in the Cerulean Sea, by TJ Klune.
The Obama book is really, really good so far, if intensely bittersweet to read, but as I’m typing this I’m only about 1/3 of the way through it, so I’m going to hem and haw and declare that you can pick the Book of the Month from between Persephone Station, A Master of Djinn and The Raven’s Gift, because today was the last day of school (again!) and I am not in the mood for difficult choices.
Book of the Month is going to be Cassandra Khaw’s The All-Consuming World, although I also quite enjoyed The Unspoken Name and Incendiary is showing some serious promise. Left out of the picture accidentally is Amanda Joy’s The Queen of Gilded Horns; under normal circumstances I’d retake the picture but I’ve already put all the books back and I’m feeling lazy.
