What's on my TBR ?

Library books I've got on my To Be Read pile include Penelope Lively's The Ghost of Thomas Kempe - a re-read from childhood; an anthology called Centuries of Stories; Icefire by Chris d'Lacey (I'm reading The Fire Within right now); The Devil's Arithmetic - Jane Yolen; The Folk Keeper - Franny Billingsley; The Fantastical Adventures of the Invisible Boy (aka The Gawgon and the Boy) - Lloyd Alexander; these three are all a consequence of reading Leonard S Marcus' The Wand in the Word; Michael Chabon's The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay and The Final Solution (the result of reading Summerland); Tolkien's Roverandom; Louis Sachar's Small Steps (sequel-of-sorts to Holes); and the first two of Chris Bunch's Star Risk series - I've got the third book to read as well, but I own that one as I'm now a reviewer for Orbit and Atom, the fantasy and YA publishing arms (respectively) of Little, Brown. I also have Scott Westerfeld's Midnighters: The Secret Hour and Midnighters: Touching Darkness, Fiona McIntosh's Betrayal (book one of the Trinity series), and Trudi Canavan's Priestess of the White and Last of the Wilds to read. I'm pretty excited about becoming a reviewer for Orbit, not least because they publish one of my favourite "fantasy for adults" writers (Juliet E McKenna) !

That's brilliant, Michele! (Becoming a reviewer for Orbit rather than your TRB pile.) Congratulations!

Michele said...

Thanks ! I'm rather pleased, I must say !

Yeah, Michele! I knew it was coming, but it's great to see it in print.

How about Sunday the 23rd, btw?

Michele said...

Cheers Kelly !!

I'll email you about next weekend...

Wonderful, truly fantastic - though actually I should be congratulating Orbit and Atom for getting you!
