Read in April 2012

Oh April, where did you go? It seems like just the other day that I was writing a similar post for March!

It was an interesting bookish month of plenty of new-to-me authors (I just realised that all the fiction I read, with the exception of course of the sequel, were by new-to-me authors! That must be a first).

The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms (The Inheritance Trilogy #1) – N.K. Jermisin
Oronooko – Aphra Behn

I’ve finally finished Season 8! Yay! And then I read the last book and find out there is a Season 9. Not sure what I think of that, especially the way they ended things in Season 8…

  1. Have you started your re-watch of Buffy yet? Or has your reading interfered? And that’s cool, that all the fiction comes via new-to-you authors. Gotta love the influx of new faves!
