2018 Stand Outs
Since we're in mid December, it's time to ask the question....what were your favourite things you've read in 2018?
This is a point where I lament that in 2018 I failed to keep careful records of the things I read.
Of the book club books, Invisible Cities stood out. I also enjoyed Venetian Masque and The Girl with All the Gifts. Wizard of Earthsea, the Big Sleep, and The Lies of Locke Lamorra were all good, but I didn't actually reread them for the book club discussion, them all being pretty recent reads before 2018.
When it comes to historical fiction, I've been enjoying the Falco novels of Lindsay Davis- a hardboiled private detective in the Roman Emperor at the time of Vespasian. Recommended.
There hasn't been much (anything?) in terms of fantasy.
When it comes to science fiction, I've enjoyed some of Alistair Reynolds' more recent books- specifically Revenger and Poseidon's Wake, last part of his Poseidon's Children series.
Enough of that....what's yours?
