I like Rob Beschizza’s note on Boing Boing:
First pick is All the Birds in the Sky by Charlie Jane Anders, which I’ve been looking forward to since Cory’s stellar review here at BB. Then I’m checking out Tomi Adayemi’s Children of Blood and Bone, recommended to me by none other than ██████████.
I’ve read about 10% of the books. Time to dive in!
