April is fast approaching and these are the books I'm planning on reading in April.
This is Brandon Sanderson monster
series, I think it’s supposed to be ten books or something. It’s about the
world of Roshar and this order of knights called the Knights Radiant whose
order fell centuries ago. And it’s about a kid called Kaladin, who used to be a
magician’s apprentice, but became a soldier to protect his brother, and now
he’s a slave. And it’s about this woman across the ocean, called Shallan who
wants to train under a heretic. Most people say it’s incredible, and that it’s
magnificent, and I’m very excited. I love Sanderson’s writing, his world
building is amazing, and I’m really stoked. It’ll be fun.
This is a book about a woman named
Lady Trent, the world’s foremost dragon naturalist. I think the world is
written sort of as a fake biography about Lady Trent, and it’s about her and
about the dragons she looks into. It’s like a fake scientific text about
dragons, and it sounds really cool. I like dragons, and I love fake science,
for some reason, so I’m excited.
The YearofBrontë continues with one of
Anne’s books. She was the youngest Brontë sister and she wrote two books. When
Anne was 19 she left home to be a governess and Agnes Grey is based on her life
as a governess. It’s about young Agnes Grey, the daughter of a minister with
few means. And Agnes deals with the difficulty of reigning in spoilt, unruly
children, and seeing how money can corrupt, so it’ll be fun.
I’ve been wanting to read John Scalzi
for a while. I follow a lot of what he does online, the blogging and the
tweeting and all that, but I’ve never read any of his books, but I thought that
should change. It’s about a guy named Jack Holloway, a soldier who works for
ZaraCorp. He is involved in an accidental cliff collapse and finds a bunch of
jewels. He manages to lay claim to them, and is the summarily fired for causing
the collapse. He discovers that the corporation is extracting resources from
the planet without necessarily having any legitimate right to do so. Also, tiny
This is the second book, duh, in a
trilogy about a man named David. David shows up in hospital with amnesia and
the hospital puts an ad in the paper to find out who he is. People are
encouraged to write letters to try to help David remember. The story is told
through the letters, and through the interactions the senders have with other
people in their lives. And it’s very interesting to see how different people experience
different situations. It’s a while since I read the first one, but I’m excited
to read this one either way.
I’ve had this for like a month and not
read it, and I’ve no idea why, but I’ll read it in April, I guess. Feel the
confidence. So Saga is about these two warring planets, and two people, one
from each side, falling in love, getting married, running away and having a
baby. I’m not sure what this one is about, but I imagine more swearing, sex,
violence and weirdness, so that’ll be fun.
