Reading project, week ending 16 May 2021

What have I read this week?

Ash & Bramble by Sarah Prineas

This is a fantasy novel about Pin and Shoe, who are trapped in the Godmother’s castle. Their memories have been wiped; all Pin has is a thimble, but she is determined to escape. I really liked this; Pin and Shoe were great characters, and I really enjoyed the story. I’d definitely read more by this author.

Commitment Hour by James Alan Gardner

This is a science fiction novel about Fullin, a young person living in a future Earth where most people emigrated to the stars and those who remained are now slowly clawing themselves out of the resulting mess. Fullin belongs to a group called the Tobers, who change sex every year until they’re 20, when they have to commit to one or the other (or to being both). I really did not like this; it had the potential to be interesting, but the main character was very annoying, and the plot twist was obvious.

Oh My Gods by Alexandra Sheppard

This is a YA novel about Helen, a half-mortal teenage girl who is the daughter of Zeus. I quite liked this; it was a fun read.
