Books I finished
Begone the Raggedy Witches by Celine Kiernan [review]
Merci Suarez Changes Gears by Meg Medina: Meg Medina’s first middle grade is a good one! I loved Merci and her family. The story is very tightly focused on Merci but a warm cast of supporting characters round out the story nicely.
The Dinosaur Artist by Paige Williams: An interesting non-fiction book about–in the simplest terms–the trading of dinosaur fossils. The story becomes a lot more complex than that, however, as the history of paleontology, US and Mongolian politics, and the personal histories of the people involved get drawn in. I’m close to being done with this one and have found it pretty impressive overall.
The Light Between Worlds by Laura Weymouth: I’m not far into this one and the premise sounds really interesting (I’m always a sucker for new takes on portal fantasies). I am curious, though, to see how well it stands on its own.
The European Travel for the Monstrous Gentlewoman by Theodora Goss: Yes, still.
