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:


  • Darkside Earther by Bradley Horner -- The blurb is too long to try to compress, here's something the author said to sum it up: "It's Space-Opera, a YA romance, full of virtual worlds and Space Battles." Also, I can say that Horner knows his stuff --I read his reviews regularly and he knows his genre fiction -- if that familiarity is reflected in this story, it'll be good.
  • Iron Gold by Pierce Brown -- I thought the Red Rising trilogy ended well, I really didn't need more in this world -- and I"m a little afraid that this is trying to squeeze more out of this story than is good for it. Still, there's no way that I"m not going to read something that Brown puts out at this point. This takes place a decade or so after Morning Star and has to do with how things turned out after that. I don't want to know anything else until I read the book, so that's all I can say :)

Lastly, I'd like to say hi and welcome to Amy Sparks and lynnm2018 for following the blog this week (neither of them had a URL to share, either...not often that happens), hope you like what you read.
