January 2017: Reading Report from North, Central Texas

Stack of BooksGreetings and Salutations!  It hard to believe that the first month of 2017 has already passed. The holidays are over and things are back to what passes for normal around here.


He has been reading at tome by Kim Stanley Robinson in paperback as opposed to his Nook.  Except for a couple of scientific inaccuracies, he has enjoyed this book.

  • Robinson, Kim Stanley. 2312. New York: Orbit, 2012.


School has started again so Sarah has been very busy.  Here is her reading list for this month.

  • Harkness, Deborah.  A Discovery of Witches.  New York: Penguin Books, 2011.
  • Budewitz, Leslie.  Assault and Pepper.  New York: Berkley Prime Crime, 2015.


For some reason I seem to have been busy as well.  I don’t feel like I have read enough this month.  Here’s my list.  You will notice a slight overlap with Alexis.  We were reading The Complete Father Brown Stories  at the same time, but different editions.  It is lovely when we can discuss the books we have both read.

  • Alexander, Lloyd. The Prydain Chronicles.  – See my January 30, 2017 blog on this series of 5 books.
  • Roberts, Nora.  The Island of Glass. New York: Berkley, 2016.  This is the last book in her Guardians Trilogy.  I reread the first two books in the series and finished this one up after the first of the year.
  • Chesterson, G.K.  The Complete Father Brown Stories.  Herefordshire, England: Wordsworth, 1992.


She is as always a prodigious reader.  Her list regularly eclipse all others in the family.  She frequently blazes a trail that one or the other of us follows.  It is always enjoyable discussing new books with her.

  • Carson, Rae.  Walk on Earth a Stranger.  New York: Green Willow, 2015
  • Carson, Rae.  Like a River Glorious.  New York: Green Willow, 2016.
  • Elrod, P.N. The Hanged Man. Tom Doherty (TOM), 2015.  I am reading this book right now.
  • Elrod, P.N. (editor). My Big, Fat, Supernatural Wedding. New York: St. Martin’s Griffin, 2006.
  • Koval, Mary Robinette.  Without a Summer. New York: Tom Doherty Associates, 2013.
  • Koval, Mary Robinette.  Valour and Vanity. New York: Tom Doherty Associates, 2014.
  • Marillier, Juliet.  Dreamer’s Pool.  New York: ROC, 2014.  This one is in my stack to read!
  • Marillier, Juliet.  Tower of Thorns New York: ROC, 2015.

Happy 2017!  Keep calm and read on!
