Reading project, week ending 18 Aug 2019

What have I read this week?

Sorry for late posting!

Prudence and Imprudence by Gail Carriger

These are the first two books of The Custard Protocol. They follow the adventures of a young woman called Prudence, and it’s set during the Victorian era, but with vampires, werewolves and steampunk. I liked the characters and the stories were interesting. I enjoyed this and would definitely read more in this series.

The Prisoner of Limnos by Lois McMaster Bujold

This is a fantasy novella, the sixth book in the Penric and Desdemona series. It follows Penric, a sorceror and priest, and Nikys, the woman he’s in love with. I enjoyed this. I like the characters and the world. I would definitely read more in the series.

Vox by Christina Dalcher

This is a science fiction novel about a woman named Jean living in an America where fundamentalist Christians have taken over and women are restricted to speaking no more than 100 words a day. I found this kind of horrifying, because it goes into a lot of detail about exactly how it could happen. I did think it was a good book, though.
