I Recently Finished Reading: A Wizard of Earthsea

I've read this book before, but I was in the mood for something a little familiar (not too familiar, it's probably been 15-ish years). I think it may be my favorite LeGuin book. For the most part, I don't really care for LeGuin's style. I think her writing is a bit too literary for my … Continue reading I Recently Finished Reading: A Wizard of Earthsea

I Recently Finished Reading: The Marvelous Land of Oz

While I've read The Wizard of Oz several times over the years, this was just the second time I had read The Marvelous Land of Oz.

This was the first sci-fi novel I had read that was more about ideas than about story. Way Station focuses on a single man maintaining a … Continue reading I Recently Finished Reading: Way Station

I Recently Finished Reading: Morning Star

To start, I just want to say that I really enjoyed this series. The tone and writing style were very similar to The Hunger Games, but in a world that made more sense. I knew that Morning Star would be concluding the series, so I looked forward to seeing how everything wrapped up. The book … Continue reading I Recently Finished Reading: Morning Star

I Recently Finished Reading: Golden Son

This book sucked me in so much faster than the last one I read. Golden Son is a fast paced book that does a lot more than many middle books. Often, it seems like middle books are all about positioning the characters for the finale rather than about really advancing the story. This book is … Continue reading I Recently Finished Reading: Golden Son
