Reading project, week ending 27 Oct 2019

What have I read this week?

Song of Edmon (The Fracture Worlds Book 1) by Adam Burch

This is a science fiction novel following a young man named Edmon. He is the son of a man who gained noble rank through winning the annual Combat, but Edmon is really only interested in becoming a musician. I quite enjoyed this, but feel no particular urge to read any more of the series.

A Little Hatred (The Age of Madness: Book 1) by Joe Abercrombie

This is a fantasy novel following various characters during a time of great upheaval in a kingdom that is rapidly industrialising. I enjoyed this: it’s dark and brutal, like pretty much everything else I’ve read by the author, but the characters and the world are really interesting and engaging. I definitely plan on reading the next book in the series.

A False Report: A True Story by T. Christian Miller and Ken Armstrong

This is a nonfiction book about a serial rapist. It was very interesting, and quite harrowing, particularly the parts about the woman who was pressured into withdrawing her rape allegation by the police.
