I finally got around to reading Malafrena by Ursula Le Guin. I reread March by Geraldine Brooks. And I very much enjoyed Seanan McGuire’s ghost novel.
Two books by Doreen Valiente, a history of antifascism, a collection of SF shorts by N K Jemisin, and some light porn involving Morris dancing.
Rabbits, a lovestruck curate, and the wonderful Nombeki.
Oddly enough, the first two books that I read involved faeries (not for any particular reason). And two were set in Oxford.
It seems that inclusive Tarot is in the air, because I have seen two posts about it today.
Three adventures of very different sorts this month: Yiddish for Pirates, Walking to Mercury, and The Fifth Sacred Thing.
Books I’ve read in August.
I really enjoyed the movie Tolkien but found some of it to be odd. I get that biographical movies have to truncate, elide, and simplify, but they should be true to their subject. Overall this was a very enjoyable film, and Nicholas Hoult and Lily Collins were great as Tolkien and Edith. A fine performance from Adam Bregman as Geoffrey Bache Smith, too.
Spoilers after the jump…
