Books I’ve recently read

Home Fires by Gene Wolfe

While it wasn’t quite what I’d expected, that is very much a good thing. I enjoyed it.

If you’re looking for something a little science-fiction-y and a little adventure-y you might enjoy this one, especially if you take to the writing styles of Gene Wolfe (which I tend to). I would recommend it.

Harry Potter (all seven) by J. K. Rowling

Apparently after they made the sixth movie, somone decided to write some books! At least that’s how it seemed to me, as I read all seven within this last month. There’s a good chance you’ve read these and that’s now true of me as well!

It did take me about three books to get into the series, but in the end I enjoyed it and even now miss my friends Ron and Hermoine a little (not so much Harry, I never truly considered him a friend).

There are things I liked and things I didn’t, though that is true of all books but the truly and completely terrible. I would recommend them, though with some qualifications.

The Sorcerer's House by Gene Wolfe

More fantastic than future-set, I’d recommend it for anyone looking for that set in present-day. It features the same sort of protagonist I’ve become familiar with from some of his other works.

Rant: An Oral Biography of Buster Casey by Chuck Palahniuk

A friend and I agreed to read each other’s recommendations, and this was one of hers. It was interesting, and I might recommend it (though with more than a few qualifications).

Lightning by Dean Koontz

Another book that she recommended; though fine, it really wasn’t my style.

But what to read next?

    Did Kacey recommend those books to you? I think Lightning is one of her favorites.
