Releases I’m excited for in January 2017
The Bear and the Nightingale – Katherine Arden
A fairy-tale-esque story set in the Russian wilderness. As a lifelong lover of fairy tales, this is right up my alley, and since I haven’t kept up with my fairy tale reading over the past year, this looks like a good story to sink my teeth into and hopefully get back in the game.
A diamond in the rough, a brilliantly crafted, folklore-based jaunt around San Francisco’s Chinatown and the spirit world therein. I cannot tell you how much I was inspired by the folklore and magic in this book. I loved the characters and their relationships, I loved the main character’s journey and I appreciated the unpredictable plot. I really think anyone can find inspiration from this novel, I really recommend this one highly.
