Imagine a gentle atmosphere, lounging with a book while friends chatter in the background. That’ll be me on vacation soon, and I need your help deciding what to read!
I am perennially guilty of planning to read a ton of books on break, then only reading one. I’m taking the opposite tactic this time, starting planning with only one. A dangerous strategy, I am aware.
My choices are:
Scent of Magic by Maria V. Snyder
Maria V. Snyder is a favorite author; I’ve never met a Snyder book I didn’t like, and I have several that I love. I’ve admittedly read mixed reviews of this second book in a fantasy series. It is likely action packed and plot based.
For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diane Peterfreund
I haven’t had the pleasure of reading a book by Diane Peterfreund, though I once dismally made unicorn poop because of her. It’s almost guaranteed that I’ll like this futuristic retelling of Jane Austen’s Persuasion. I’ve certainly read more than my fair share of the Jane Austen retelling subgenre.
What do you make of my deliberations? I like the idea of both, and they’ve been on my TBR for quite some time.
