With a book like Big Green Tent to keep me busy, you might think I wouldn’t have time to read anything else, but 700-page Russian novels don’t make good bedtime reading for the kids. More on that later….
First, I want to give a plug for a series of dystopian sci-fi novels that are on my reading list. I downloaded the first one, Echo, to my phone, and I have been reading it between my other commitments. So far, I’ve been impressed by the depth given to the main character, which is sometimes where this genre can fall short.I also feel like the story has a sense of authenticity–despite the other-worldly setting and plot, the story and characters are “real.”
The reviews of the next two books in the series say that they only get better and that the author’s writing matures with each installment. If that’s the case, I’ll definitely finish the series when I find time between the other titles on my list.
Anyway, I mention all of this because the Echo books will be discounted next week (March 7). So if you’re interested at all, Echo 1 will be free, and books 2 and 3 will be $0.99 each on Amazon. Here’s a link for Tuesday.
That said, here’s the March edition of Also Reading: A Wrinkle in Time (with HJ), The Witch’s Boy (with Beaurito), and Just Write (with myself). Let me know what you think of these books and what else you’re reading.
