incorrigible daydreamer. I share my thoughts on fantasy and science-fiction related works on my blog... https://xalwaysdreamx.wordpress.com

Space animals kidnap elephants to learn how to speak to the dead. Anthropomorphism on a whole new level!

Barsk: The Elephants' Graveyard - Lawrence M. Schoen

A waterlogged dystopian whodunit that’s rather flavorless in execution.

Salt (The Last Flotilla Book 1) - Colin F. Barnes

A magical curse. A scorned wizard. A journey to a distant land. A heart of ice melted by love.

Followed by Frost - Charlie N. Holmberg

A fresh-faced heroine risks all to pursue her dream of becoming an apprentice Mystic, singing silvery mist-animals to life in ancient, mysterious woods.

Mystic - Jason Denzel

Where hedgehogs are brave companions, golems are to be pitied, and marriage is most definitely a sentence worst than death. The Seventh Bride by T. Kingfisher (Ursula Vernon)

The Seventh Bride - Kingfisher

The slums of Chialto may be overcrowded and labyrinthine but somehow the two people most important to the fate of the nation can still find each other without further ado. Who’d have thought?

Royal Airs - Sharon Shinn

How will a prickly healer hell-bent on vengeance and a hulking brute haunted by nightmares save a Prince and his darling from the sinister workings of an ancient magic?

Dreamer's Pool( A Blackthorn & Grim Novel)[DREAMERS POOL][Hardcover] - JulietMarillier

Changing clothes, climbing out of towers, tripping up grumpy wizards—it has never been more difficult to be a witch!

Uprooted - Naomi Novik

After years of having her identity programmed into her, a fragment of an AI mind must re-build the story of who she is. And that story is one of vengeance.

Ancillary Mercy - Ann Leckie

Finished the #ScifiMonth Read Along of A Long Way to a Small Angry Planet

The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet - Becky Chambers

The Read Along took place all throughout November 2015 of ScifiMonth. Discussion questions and my answers for them are here:

 

Week 1 (“Transit” to “Port Coriol”): Pink men, Hyperactive Mech Techs, Grandpa-esque Caterpillar-aliens, AI romances, Patchwork Ships…oh, the shenanigans onboard the Wayfarer!

 

Week 2 ("Port Coriol” to “The Last War”): A diverse cast, questions about sentience and the necessity of weaponry, and more fun times with the crew.

 

Week 3 (“The Last War” to “Heresy”): In which we meet douchebag Quelins, discuss the price of war, and explore interspecies coupling…hooray!

 

Week 4 (“Heresy” to end): Space is not a lonely void—it’s full of stars, beauty, life, and hope. It’s a place to be at peace with yourself.
