I’m very happy with the Kirkus review of Nix Minus One, which you can find on Nix’s home page on this website.
And I’m taking some time off to read.
True Confessions: I can’t read fiction when I’m writing or editing my own fiction.
Because I’ve done so much writing and editing in the last year or two, I’m hungry for other people’s novels. Here’s the list so far:
JoAnn Yhard’s adventure-filled thriller for middle readers, Buried Secrets at Louisbourg.
Sue MacLeod’s evocative and intelligent Namesake, about two teenagers called Jane Grey, one of whom lives in the 21st century, while the other is awaiting execution in sixteenth century England.
Two (adult) novels by Pat Barker, renowned for her books about WWI.
Anne Simpson’s novel Falling, a book that for me was filled with grace.
And Burial Rites, by Hannah Kent, set in nineteenth century Iceland, also about a woman awaiting execution – I’m going to Iceland in July, and plan to read some Icelandic sagas before I leave.
Gotta go. There’s a big stack of books waiting for me….
