The Inheritance Trilogy | N. K. Jemisin
post image

After 2.5 months, I ought to be able to count this more than once in my GR Reading Challenge. (Note to self: no more omnibus editions...even if they are $2.99).

Johanna414 Lol I would have definitely counted each volume individually! 2mo

There is a superb interview with the author in The Paris Review. https://www.theparisreview.org/blog/2019/06/05/survival-as-a-creative-force-an-i...

Nutmegnc Vuong says: “Maybe I‘m being naive, but I understand genres to be as fluid as genders. Our lives are full of restrictions—jobs, bills, time, gravity, all of this impinging on us—but to write is to gift yourself the freedom of choice and possibility. “ 2mo

Jason Reynolds says it‘s amazing. As does NYT and many others. One reviewer said it‘s “permanently stunning”. I‘m def gonna check this one out when it drops tomorrow!! Learn more at www.oceanvuong.com

The Inheritance Trilogy | N. K. Jemisin
post image

The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms was almost as good as The Broken Earth Trilogy, maybe a little easier to read, in some ways maybe a little more accessible or “fun”? I put off reading it for so long because I was afraid to be disappointed. NO WORRIES. It‘s an amazing story. I‘m not sorry to say N.K. Jemisin is my absolutely favorite author. Also, I‘m liking the new Kindle option to sort by “read” or “unread”.

EchoLogical Just started this today and I'm hooked! 3mo
Nutmegnc @EchoLogical might as well get all three! You‘ll be hooked!! 3mo

Epic reread of one of my favs from back in the day. This time by audio. I commute long distances to work and I have found that when I drive, I really love adventure stories.

I‘ve just started a cross-country trip on Amtrak. I‘m so excited!!! Although I‘m glad we made it out of Chicago!! I read this book in preparation. It‘s a pretty good general overview.

1. The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss 2. The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett. 3. Romance novels, including favorites I‘ve read before. They are comforting in their formulaic plot with a guaranteed happy ending. @sebrittain

Audio edition. It‘s just okay. Kind of slow. Too far to give up. Just two hours left!! Maybe there will be a payoff??
