What are you currently reading?
I’m continuing the Silo saga by reading the prequel First Shift – Legacy (Wool #6) by Hugh Howey. Yes, I’ve bragged about the series here quite enough already. Suffice to say, it’s an intriguing futuristic “what if” told from a before-the-apocalypse point of view. And I’m still at the beginning of The End of Your Life Book Club by Will Schwalbe.
What did you recently finish reading?
Hearing Neil Gaiman interviewed on NPR recently piqued my interest in reading two of his children’s books, The Wolves in the Walls and The Day I Swapped My Dad for Two Goldfish. He has become one of my favorite authors in the last year or more, so I tried out Odd and the Frost Giants with my five-year old son. That was a hit, but these two titles not so much, although I enjoyed them. Gaiman says kids are braver than adults and doesn’t believe “scary” stories affect them the way adults fear they will. I hope they think, like he claims, that they can conquer the bad guys or monsters and not just get freaked out by the stories.
What do you think you’ll read next?
It’s probably a good idea to go ahead with Second Shift – Order (Wool #7) while the silo story line is still fresh in my mind. Howey is set to release the next (maybe the last) in the series this year.
