Readers, I’m sick. I’m call in to work, go to bed at eight, put me out of my misery sick. So you’re not getting a real blog post today.
Instead, I’m asking you to entertain me. I’m in a book slump. I was working so much last month that I never really got into anything, and I’m so far behind on my New Yorker subscription that I keep turning over stacks of paper in my apartment and finding issues I haven’t read.
But I’m lacking for a good book to read. I was rereading Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell, but I’d like to try something new. I recently read The Hunger Games, which I enjoyed while I was reading but left me cold once I was finished. I have a new urban fantasy to read on my Kindle, but it’s too similar to Shaken in some ways, and I’m not quite ready to read it.
So I ask you: what should I read? I prefer fantasy, obviously (given the title of this blog), but I’m open to checking out something else. Dazzle me with your recommendations, I beg you.
