Bookmarked 2024 Week 14

How was your first week of April? I finally finished The Beast You Are: Stories, Paul Tremblay which was just OK for me. Most of the short stories felt kind of pointless. But I also started reading the novellas nominated for this year’s Nebula Awards and loved Thornhedge, T. Kingfisher, which is a unique and interesting retelling of Sleeping Beauty. Loved it. Here’s 10+ bookish links for your reading pleasure.

one+ Don’t forget that a new month brings a fresh selection of FREE books from Amazon First Reads. If you’re an Amazon Prime subscriber, you get to choose one book for Free, and also, this month there’s a bonus short story by THE Margaret Atwood, Cut and Thirst.

two+ New books for April -> The Goodreads Editors Share Their Book Picks for April + Goodreads Readers’ Most Anticipated Books of April and AudioFile Editors Pick 10 Fresh Audiobooks for April.

three+ And for my fellow genre loving people – Vampires, Selkies, Familiars, and More! April’s Best Sci-Fi and Fantasy Books

four+ I don’t get asked for reading recommendations often … although I do stalk the airport book shops and give out unasked for advice to the people who are browsing and seem unsure … but I digress. I agree that Book Recommendations, People Are Always Better Than Algorithms.

five+ And to underscore that point, there are some lovely recommendations in Y’all Like Books? Check the comments for people’s favorites.

six+ Do you read aloud in your mind or is your brain silent? I read aloud in my head and until a few years ago, I thought everyone did this! Apparently, it makes reading slower …. but oh so much more delicious in my humble unsubstantiated opinion.

seven+ Book Riot staff rounded up the Best Books Read January-March 2024 and I always love how diverse their lists are – everything from romance to the supernatural. Love it!

eight+ Are these really the 21 Best Dystopian Novels of All Time? I agree with many of the choices like The Hunger Games, Suzanne Collins (of course) and The Handmaid’s Tale, Margaret Atwood. Which ones have you read?

nine+ A reminder that Spring into Horror month-long readathon has started! If you’re looking for something to read for this event, check out April Storms – Ten Horror Books With Snowy Settings.

ten+ The Finalists for the 2024 Hugo Awards were announced recently. The awards are presented to works of science fiction. Have you read any of nominated books? I tried with The Adventures of Amina al-Sirafi, Shannon Chakraborty, which is nominated for Best Novel, but I couldn’t finish it! I gave up about 25% of the way through.

Happy Reading this weekend my friends.
