20200901 – Books I am Reading

It has been a few months since my last blog post. However, I am still alive and my condolences to everyone who has lost a friend or family member to COVID-19. As time passes I am starting to hear of people who have have survived Covid-19 and are now on the difficult road to recovery.

For a while, during the lockdown, I was handling it quite well, and then the depression decided to sink its teeth into me, the only thing I could do to slow the downward spiral was to get out and walk. Now I am back reading and back to writing. I read two novellas by Samantha Shannon, “The Pale Dreamer” which I have had for a while but just never got round to reading and “The Dawn Chorus,” which was published just recently. I have enjoyed all the Bone Season series of books, and I am looking forward to the next book in the Bone Season series “The Mask Falling,” publication date is 16th February 2021.

I have also read the Falconer trilogy of novels by Elizabeth May, “The Falconer,” “The Vanishing Throne,” “The Fallen Kingdom.” Set in a kind of steampunk version of Scotland in the 1800s with fairies. These are the first books I have read by Elizabeth May, and I plan reading other books by this author when I get through my current pile of books in my to be read pile.
