Odds ‘n ends over the week about books and reading that caught my eye. You’ve probably seen some/most/all of them, but just in case:
- Goodreads Choice Awards’ voting is underway, already. Any nominees you really like? (I’m writing in Tiffany McDaniel’s The Summer that Melted Everything for Best Fiction and Best Goodreads Debut)
- The Bronx Loses Its Only Bookstore
- Faith Hunter: 5 ways writing abused … er, changed my life
- Thomas Morris tweets some good (and amusing) advice for those feeling intimidated by great authors
- My Top Five Onscreen Bookworms — good list from BookRiot
- This Week’s New Releases I’m Excited About and/or You’ll Probably See Here Soon:
- Curse on the Land by Faith Hunter — Great second book in the series. If you missed me blathering on about it, or the book tour stop from a couple of weeks ago, you should check them out.
- The Lost Child of Lychford by Paul Cornell — possibly the most disturbing thing I’ve read this year (with the exception of US election coverage), a more developed post is coming.
- Shadowed Souls by Jim Butcher and Kerrie L. Hughes — looks like a great collection of UF short stories — includes a new Dresden Files story — and a Simon Canderous tale. w00t!
- Burke’s Last Witness by CJ Dunford — Fahrenheit Press’ new release looks like an interesting take on Burke and Hare. Check out the book trailer
