What I read: April 2012

It's unlikely I'll read another book tonight since I guess I should do my taxes instead, so I'll just post this now.

OWW: Nothing. Yeah, I'm not sure this is valuable for me anymore. 

“Throne of the Crescent Moon” by Saladin Ahmed. Library book! Stylistically very different from the last few books I read. I was having a hard time with it until I realized that it’s sword-and-sorcery, and the tropes are for that sub-genre, not the high fantasy that I usually read. This realization led to an interesting conversation with the boy where I tried to explain the difference between the two sub-genres. I’ll be interested to see what characters pop up in the next book in the series.

“Not Cold Enough”. Not sure it counts to read things I wrote myself, but I did read the whole thing.
