Saturday Book Club! Martha Wells & Luca Turin/Tonia Sanchez
Saturday Book Club! (Since I was traveling Friday.) What are you reading? I read Martha Wells’ two new Raksura novellas. If you haven’t ever tried this fantasy author, she is one of my top favorite authors. (One of the very few auto buys that I have, in fact.) I wouldn’t start with the novellas, if she’s new to you, but if you like fantasy, try The Element of Fire or Wheel of the Infinite.
And I’ve been reading Luca Turin and Tonia Sanchez’s Perfumes: The A to Z Guide, which is hilarious, and at the same time with this gorgeously sculpted descriptive language. If you ever thought it was hard to describe scent in innovative ways, see what these two manage to do.
What about you? What are you reading this week?
