Caboose of the Whimsically Tardy 2016 Reading List

Posted on March 22, 2017 by

On Monday I posted a rundown on all of my 2016 reading except new-to-me books: the student projects, rereads, short fiction, first chapters, you name it. Today, I give you the things I read from cover to cover.

One of the great things about being a writer is that you sometimes get to see advance copies of books, and I got to look at a few such things, some of which are out now, some of which are coming soon.

They were amazing, and you will love them!

Crossroads of Canopy: Book One in the Titan’s Forest Trilogy, by Thoraiya Dyer
And Carry a Big Stick, by S.M. Stirling (March 2018)
Weave a Circle Round, by Kari Maaren
All Those Explosions Were Someone Else’s Fault, by James Alan Gardner

Just as wonderful, but slightly less hot off the presses…

The Trespasser, by Tana French
Company Town, by Madeline Ashby
This was my reading year! And 2016 being in the rear view, perhaps I’ll ask: How has yours been so far?

Response to Caboose of the Whimsically Tardy 2016 Reading List

  1. I did not know Kari had sold a novel. Very cool!

    Being that I know Kari, and the description of the house next door reminds me of de Lint’s Tamson House, I believe this may very well be a case of SUATMM (*grin*).

    My reading year is off to a very good start. Everfair, A Gathering of Shadows, A Long Way to a Small Angry Planet, and Hidden Figures just to name a few things.

    • Hello, Gorgeous Gary. (Which of the Garys are you? I know a few Garys.) Yes, I sold this novel in 2015. We are creeeeeeeping veeeeeerrrrrry slooooowwwwllllyyyyy towards the publication date…

      My reading year has been a little slow. I’ve mostly returned to comfortable old friends such as basically everything Terry Pratchett has ever written. I have a huge TBR pile, though.
