I don't post here much but often read these threads for book recommendations, so thought I'd share my reads as well. I read pretty much only great and excellent SciFi-Fantasy nowadays, thanks to you guys!
So far this year I've read
The Girl with all the Gifts by M.R. Carey which I thought was okay. Liked the beginning but lost interest when the story changed focus. The ending was mildly interesting, though.
The Essex Serpent by Sarah Perry. Got this one in translation as a Christmas gift. Thought both the book and the translation was excellent. It has a warmth and humanity about it that made it a joy to read.
The Tombs of Atuan and The Farthest Shore by Ursula Le Guin, also in translation. I adore Le Guin, and these were no exception. The translation was also absolutely wonderful. Possibly the best translation I've ever read.
Sleeping Giants by Sylvain Neuvel. I bought this one on impulse and it was a bit of a let down. The whole book is told as a set of interviews by a behind-the-scenes-manipulator sort of character. The author didn't really pull it off though, and it mostly resulted in a lot of telling, not showing.
And most recently finished Pride and Prejudice. Haven't read Jane Austen before, but I will again. The language was a bit of a challenge at first, but I loved it once I got used to it.
Now onto All the Birds in the Sky by Charlie Jane Anders, I think.
