- The Proper Place and The Day of Small Things by O Douglas (Anna Masterton Buchan). If it wasn’t for the occasional random racism, classism, and sexism, these would have been really good relaxing reads.
- Why I’m No Longer Talking To White People About Race by Reni Eddo-Lodge. Really good. I was going to take my time over this, but couldn’t put it down.
- An Accident of Stars and A Tyranny of Queens by Foz Meadows. A “more realistic” take on the real-world implications of portal fantasy. The first was a re-read in preparation for the second (its sequel). Pretty good all the way through, though I did find in the second one I sometimes had to backtrack a bit because I’d misinterpreted which character was the current viewpoint character (it switches around a lot).
- Every Heart A Doorway by Seanan McGuire. Another interesting take on the portal fantasy theme. The next one in the series is out this month and I may well get it.
- Summer in Orcus by T Kingfisher. Yet another portal fantasy. I swear this wasn’t on purpose — I just remembered that I like this author and went to see if they had anything out that I’d not already read. I still like this author.
- To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee. I’d never read this before, and felt it was time to remedy this.
