So, I’m going to continue reading in July, oh yeah, I don’t quit. I
haven’t planned that many books, but in fairness one is a beast and it’ll take
me a while.
I’m going to read A Feast for Crows by George R. R. Martin. Book four in
the series A Song of Ice and Fire. I am really looking forward to it. Most of
the kings are dead and something exciting must happen, I’m figuring. I’m
looking forward to read what Tyrion is going to get up to and what will happen
to Sansa. It’ll take a while and I’ll have to read it while reading other
Because I finished the Golden Compass in June I’m going to read the Subtle Knife in July, which is the second book in Pullman’s His Dark
Materials-trilogy. I have started and I already like Will, the other main
character, quite a lot which is good. The creepy people are still creepy, the
other characters, like doctor Malone, are also exciting, and there is more Lee
Scoresby and Serafina Pekkala, excited.
I thought I’d move straight onto the Amber Spyglass when I finish the
Subtle knife. The Amber Spyglass is the last installment in Pullman’s trilogy
and it’s the one I never finished last time around, so I don’t really know what
happens, I’m really excited for it. I think it’ll be fun. I don’t really
remember the end to book two either, so I have no clue what’ll happen.
I’m moving on to Anno Dracula which is an alternate history written by
Kim Newman. It’s apparently a series, which is fun. It is set in the 19th
century and uses real people and characters from fiction as characters. And
there are regular humans and vampires in England. I’ve read the novel Dracula,
it was really creepy and awesome and I hope Newman manages to capture at least
some of that. It’s apparently centered around Jack the Ripper, so I’m looking
forward to that.
I am also going to read ProfessorMoriarty: The Hound of the D'Urbervilles, also by Kim Newman. It’s a bunch of
short stories about Moriarty, Sherlock Holmes’ nemesis. She has written a bunch
of stories in a sort of Holmes-esque style. The stories are narrated by Colonel
Moran, who is Moriarty’s Watson, and I am looking forward to it.
be alternate history and fantasy-month in July, which suits me well.
