It’s time for another Literary Junkies link party. If you want to join a fun virtual book club, the Literary Junkies club is home to some of my favorite people (including myself, naturally). We are reading The Magician’s Lie by Greer MacAllister in August, which looks like it will be an interesting read!
1. What are you reading right now? Tell us about it.
Right now, I’m waiting on my copy of Go Set a Watchman to arrive. It was supposed to be here 10 days ago, but there was a shipping problem… So, I’m just waiting on that one.
2. What book reminds you of summertime as a kid?
I tend to turn to science fiction and action books in the summer. Probably because of all of the summer blockbusters. So, books that reminds me of summertime all tend to have science fiction themes. I really enjoyed the Artemis Fowl books when I was younger, and when I was even younger than that, I really liked the Boxcar Children mysteries.
3. What book did you have on your summer reading list that truly nailed it as a summer reading favorite?
None of the books I have read so far this summer have really wowed me. So that’s been kind of a bust. I really need to visit a bookstore/library and try again. I’ve been pretty busy doing activities this summer, so I haven’t read as many books as usual.
4. Who is your favorite author and why? Give us your top recommendation by them.
Terry Pratchett is probably my favorite author right now. I always enjoy reading his books. They make me smile. I’m still pretty sad he is dead. Read any Discworld book (the ones staring women are my favorites) and you will be happy.
5. Fall Book Reading lists are starting to make their appearances. What are you excited to read that’s being released this fall?
There are a few fall books on my list that I’m looking forward to when the weather cools. I usually like to read creepier books in the fall. In September, the final Discworld/Tiffany Aching story will be released. I will definitely be reading that one. Another Throne of Glass book is also coming out- I might try that series. In October, a sort of fantasy/horror book comes out based on the podcast Welcome to Night Vale, which looks pretty creepy and fun.
