My one-word review: Wow. This was my first time reading N.K. Jemisin, and I‘m glad I started here. Short stories are a great way to get a feel for an author‘s range of genres, styles, and themes. And Jemisin‘s got serious range! I love the mix of sci-fi, fantasy, and even foodie fic (is that a thing?). Her strong narrative voice pulls me in, and her haunting, thought-provoking stories stay with me.

Bklover Well, I‘m convinced! Stacked! (And I‘ve already read The Fifth Season, which was wonderful!) 5mo
alysonwrites Yay! I haven‘t read The Fifth Season yet, but it‘s definitely on my TBR. 5mo

Liatrek Very nice 😊 5mo
Carolyn11215 Ohhhhhh...you got the other Becky Chambers books!!!! How exciting! 5mo
hermyknee @Carolyn11215 yes! I look forward to escaping back into her universe ✨💚✨ Thank you for getting me started on her books! 5mo
Carolyn11215 @hermyknee I haven‘t read the other two yet. I loved her first in the series soooo much I think I subconsciously don‘t want to read through the series and then have it be over. Now I still have something to look forward to... 5mo

Price break! So excited I got to snag a Kindle copy of this for $4.99 USD. (Although I would have happily paid full price.) Just read the first story and already—Wow.

Eggbeater I'm reading this on my Kindle. I love this author! 5mo
hermyknee I just ordered the first book in the broken earth trilogy from amazon - it‘ll hopefully be here by Thursday! I really need some sci fi! (Sometimes sci fi is hard to me to follow on audio, so I also ordered a hardback copy of this book, too!) @Eggbeater treat yo self ☺️🤪 (edited) 5mo
TheNextBook I‘m loving this collection!!!! 5mo

hermyknee @TheNextBook my hard copy just came in! I have a hard time following fantasy on audio. I also just got in The Fifth Season. Which should I read first?! 5mo
TheNextBook The Fifth Season!!!! 5mo
hermyknee @TheNextBook okay!! I‘m reading that one now and when I finish the series (I bought all three!) I‘ll read the short story collection! 5mo
TheNextBook That series is so good! The first of her earlier trilogy is on my TBR pile for this month. 5mo

I'm not normally a short story person, but after loving the broken earth trilogy from this author, had to give it a try. And boy was I not disappointed! I can't decide which was my favourite story, they were all 5 stars. I'm sure this book has spoiled me for other short story collections, but has made me want to try others regardless

Cinfhen Great review!! 6mo
wtimblin @Cinfhen thanks! 6mo
hermyknee What a fantastic review! I‘m really looking forward to reading this collection with @TheNextBook in February for #readBlackwomen & #keepingitshort 💛🧡💛 6mo
wtimblin @hermyknee thanks. I'm so jealous you get to read it for the first time! It is an awesome book. Hope you enjoy 6mo

#readBlackwomen is happening. #keepingitshort is happening! And I can‘t wait to read this!

hermyknee Ooh I‘ve been wanting to read that one, too! How can I join in?! 6mo
JPeterson This was fantastic! I‘ve never been a huge short story fan, but these sucked me in and I couldn‘t put it down. Let me know what you think! 6mo
TheNextBook @hermyknee just tag #keepingitshort or #readBlackwome or me while your reading so I can catch your thoughts! You can share this image to if you want. There are quite a few stories so I‘ll more than likely be reading it into March. I read a few stories between each novel. 6mo

TheNextBook @Weaponxgirl I didnt even realize that until last year!!!! I‘m glad you‘re joing though. I‘ll be posting the rest of my #readBlackwomen TBR soon. 6mo
cocomass Ahhh I got this for Christmas and have been saving to for February because the irony is too delicious. Always down to #readBlackwomen all year long though! 6mo
Weaponxgirl @TheNextBook would you like us to focus on American black women or is any nationality good? I can do either easily, I just like to have an idea of what books I can put at the top of my tbr each month 😊And I really look forward to seeing more of your tbr! 6mo
sprainedbrain I‘m definitely down for #readBlackwomen but idk how short I will able to keep it. 😂 6mo
TheNextBook @Weaponxgirl Any nationality is good! Just use the #readBlackwomen hashtag! 6mo
TheNextBook @cocomass 😂 I use that hashtag all year long!!! But in February I am LOUD!!! 6mo

There is one more day left in 2018 but my reading is done! Check out #MyYearInBooks! This was a good reading year. 115 books! I‘ll take that! I kept reading short story collections for #keepingitshort. I #readBlackwomen only in February! I read diversely and read some really enjoyable books! I‘m counting this year as a bookish win!
