The Priory of the Orange TreeThe Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Empire of Grass (Last King of Osten Ard Book 2)Empire of Grass by Tad Williams
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

An incredible middle book for a series, very tightly crafted. Characters are moved into places they need to be. Items are lost. Items are found. Treacheries are revealed.

Velocity Weapon (The Protectorate, #1)Velocity Weapon by Megan E. O'Keefe
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Good ol' space opera

Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book from the publisher for review.

Sentient spaceship. Strong female protagonist. Likeable rogue. Strong family connections. Politics. War. Bad good guys. Good bad guys.

I haven't enjoyed a book this much for quite awhile.

Tiamat's Wrath (The Expanse, #8)Tiamat's Wrath by James S.A. Corey
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I found the book to be disappointing and unsatisfying overall, and I certainly didn't expect a "happy ending".

The WallThe Wall by John Lanchester
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Disclaimer: I received a copy of the book for review.

A post apocalyptic dystopia in which nothing much happens even when something happens. This is a small, intimate story of one man's life encompassing a very short period of time. Well written and easy to read.
