As those who stop by the blog know, I've been struggling through a terrible bout of reader's block. It has also translated into a bigger problem because I've been struggling to write reviews- which is not helpful at all when you have a blog mostly devoted to reviewing stuff.
Anyway. One strategy I employed to break through my slump was to sort through a bunch of books I had already read, and knew I liked, and see if any of them would connect- and one finally did!
The Rook by Daniel O'Malley. If you haven't read
my review I'll skip to the good part-- it's a really good book. So far it still tops my list of "best of" books for 2012.
So now that I have finally finished a book (after a good month of tossing everything to the side) I need another good book to get into. I have been sorting through my TBR pile and Magisterium by Jeff Hirsch is looking pretty good- I'm a couple of chapters in and it has potential. But potential is not always enough to keep my flaky self interested these days-- so I'm wondering, what are you reading right now? And is it good? Have you finished anything lately that you feel the need to rave about?
I really, really want to know.
