Trail of Lightning | Rebecca Roanhorse
post image

This is fundamentally a good read, in its genre. A little too YA for me, but reminds me of the best parts of early Anita Blake books. Roanhorse could improve her skill at writing dialogue. But her vision of a post-climate catastrophe world is unique and interesting, especially the supernatural elements. Might borrow not buy book 2.

Cinfhen Since most disliked their #ClFi pick yay for you and this works for #IndigenousAuthor too ❤️ 2w
Addison_Reads Great review! I read this and enjoyed it, but I agree with your points on her dialogue. 2w
Susanita I agree the dialogue was awkward, and Maggie is a little two-dimensional, but I do want to see where the story goes. 2w

Susanita @Cinfhen I had picked American War originally, and I just couldn‘t get into it at all. 2w
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Cinfhen Right! I already did my indigenous author book. The #clifi prompt has been a sword hanging over my head. Gone now! 👊🏻🤪 2w
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Addison_Reads @Susanita Glad the dialogue discomfort wasn‘t just me being picky. 👊🏻 2w
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Susanita @Cinfhen I definitely think #clifi is our collective #leastfavorite2020prompt. I had intended to read Oryx and Crake for this. Still want to give it a try. 2w

2. Spinning Silver - #FairyTaleRetelling
10. How To Build A Girl - #FeaturesAMusician
16. The Walking Dead Vol.32 - #Comic
17. Down Girl - Book Gifted to Me
22. Storm Cursed - #POCMCParanormal
9. Every Day is a Good Day - #IndigenousAuthor


4thhouseontheleft I still have to complete the Irish winter prompt! Great job on the others, I also read Hey, Kiddo for the addiction prompt. 3w
IamIamIam Great job! You're getting there!! 3w
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @4thhouseontheleft Hey, Kiddo was a great book too. For the Irish Writer prompt I thought I‘d read Celtic Twilight by WB Yeats it‘s on serial reader and it‘s fairies, Ghosts, spirits...so I thought it would be good one to read in October. Genrebusting is the one I‘m not sure what I‘m going to read for that one yet. 3w

Riveted_Reader_Melissa @JazzFeathers I‘ve just been fitting them in as I go, as we near the end of the year I‘ll have to be more selective. 😉 3w

Megabooks @Cinfhen Very painful and beautiful! You are correct about that and the prompt! I hope your vacation is going well! 😘😘 3mo
