Ohhh summer! Last March/April, when it was -15°C, when there was still a one-meter deep blanket of snow in front of the house, when I had to watch my feet to not slip on some ice, I felt like summer wouldn’t ever ever come back! Now it’s time to experiment with reading: reading in the garden, reading at the park, reading on the river beach, reading at the lake (surrounded by beavers, frogs, herons, squirrels and other friendly chaps), reading on a coffee shop’s patio…
With all that very important experimenting, I’ve not been writing much. However, I’ve been reading a lot of absolutely fantastic books, especially two novels from the CBC 100 books selection: Kiss of the Fur Queen by Tomson Highway, and The Birth House by Ami McKay, which left me in awe and had me search for whatever else she might have published! I didn’t write a review (yet?) but you should definitely have a look at them if you didn’t read them!
Books I reviewed this month
- The Page Turners #2: Economy of Fear by Kevin T. Johns (4.5/5): a young-adult horror/scifi novel. < favourite this month!
- The Acolyte by Nick Cutter (4/5): a horror dystopian fiction, quite different from Cutter’s previous novels The Troop and The Deep.
2015 reading challenges
I set myself some goals at the beginning of the year: Canadian Literature, French-Canadian science-fiction & fantasy… July was time to review how I’m doing in my 2015 reading challenges!
What about you? What are you reading this summer?
