Shelved: April 2017

The last monthly shelved post was made back in March 2016. I can’t seem to stick to a routine, but that’s fine, I suppose. Life is kind of hectic right now, so I’m surprised I’ve got this much done. Can’t say that I’ll be able to do it next month, but, again, it’s not the […]

Isaac Asimov: Foundation

Read by Scott Brick While not the first chronologically, Foundation is the first written book in the Foundation series. This is one of @bklynlibrary’s rex; I’m guessing this was suggested because of my mention of Le Guin’s Hainish Cycle. The story begins with the scandal surrounding mathematician and psychohistory scholar and researcher Hari Selden’s prediction […]

Gillian Flynn: Gone Girl

Ready by Julia Whelan & Kirby Heyborne It started with “Boy Loses Girl”. I stopped when, in an attempt to help Nick (the boy) figure out a good 5th anniversary gift for his wife, Margo (the boy’s twin sister) told Nick to go home, fuck Amy’s (the girl) brains out and then slap her with his […]

Alan Bennett: The Uncommon Reader

Read by Alan Bennett This was amongst one of the last batches of books I picked up back when the last Borders in my area closed; it has remained untouched since then–and still, because I ended up listening to it instead of reading it. As usual, I knew nothing about this and got it just because […]

Jasper Fforde: The Eyre Affair

Read by Susan Duerden I loved it immediately. This is the 4th recommendation from @bklynlibrary and I’m 100% sure that this was a direct result of my having mentioned that Gaiman’s Anansi Boys was a favorite. Fantasy and sci-fi are effortlessly woven into a special ops story set in 1980s England. As soon as the […]

Naomi Novik: Uprooted

Read by Julia Emelin This is 3 for 3 for my book match from @bklynlibrary. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed each one I’ve listened to so far. Uprooted was so engaging that I sacrificed precious writing time to continue listening to it. Yet another story where language is a focus, this time Polish, it seems. The story […]

Neal Stephenson: Anathem

Read by William Dufris I don’t know how to talk about this story. It’s a long almost leisurely journey from beginning to end. Even when tensions were high, the mood was rather subdued, but not dark or dull. Before I get any further, I’m going to tell you that I liked it and I’m happy […]

Katherine Addison: The Goblin Emperor

Read by Kyle McCarley I enjoyed this so much! It’s such a rich and complex world. Let’s see… First and foremost, this is a story about a despised half-blood who, through arguably unfortunate circumstances, becomes emperor. Certainly not a new idea, but what really is? The main thing I loved about this story is that […]

Robin McKinley: Sunshine

Read by Laural Merlington Initially, I thought I wasn’t going to be able to get through it because Merlington’s voice kind of made me itch, but i’m glad got used to it and even came to appreciate it. Sunshine, a story I never heard of by an author I’ve never heard of and it was […]
