Monthly Reads: September 2022

This is easily the smallest stack of books that I’ve posted since I started doing this series some number X of years ago, and while I really didn’t get a lot of reading done in September, it’s worth pointing out that I started Ken Liu’s thousand-page Speaking Bones in late August and it took until the 11th to finish. So while this was still a light month it’s not quite as light as the pile indicates.

Book of the Month is Nicholas Eames’ Kings of the Wyld.

Monthly Reads: August 2022

For a whole lot of reasons, August wasn’t a stellar month for reading, both in the amount of it that I did and the quality of the books that I was reading, but the Book of the Month was still pretty damn good: The Case of the Murderous Dr. Cream, by Dean Jobb. Ken Liu’s Speaking Bones wasn’t eligible because I’m less than a third of the way through it, and since it’s a thousand fucking pages long I expect next month’s stack to look short as well.

Monthly Reads: July 2022

The Book of the Month is going to be Ciel Pierlot’s Bluebird, I think, although you can probably imagine there was some steep competition.

Monthly Reads: June 2022

I’m not gonna lie, there were a LOT of DNFs this month, but the Book of the Month is nonetheless Riley Black’s The Last Days of the Dinosaurs.

All of this plus The Peacekeeper, by B.L. Blanchard, which I read as a digital ARC. Can you tell I was stuck in my room for a week?

Book of the Month is Babel.
