Reading project, week ending 2 Jan 2022

What have I read this week?

Death by Water and Murder in the Dark and Murder on a Midsummer Night and Dead Man’s Chest and Unnatural Habits and Murder and Mendelssohn and A Question of Death: an Illustrated Phryne Fisher Treasury by Kerry Greenwood

These are books 15 to 20 of the Phryne Fisher series and a collection of short stories about the character. I quite liked these, more so the plots than the characters. I might read more by this author.

A Psalm for the Wild-Built by Becky Chambers

This is a science fiction novel about Sibling Dex, a person who feels unfulfilled in their work and decides to do tea service. I really enjoyed this; Dex is a fascinating and relatable character and I really enjoyed the world this is set in. I will definitely read more by this author.

The Galaxy, and the Ground Within by Becky Chambers

This is a science fiction novel, the last in the Wayfarers series. It is about sentients from four different species who are trapped together by an unexpected disaster. I really enjoyed this, just as I enjoyed the rest of the series. The characters are all very different, and quite alien, and the world is really interesting. I will definitely read more by this author.

To Be Taught, If Fortunate by Becky Chambers

This is a science fiction novel about four astronauts on a mission to explore possible life-bearing planets. I enjoyed this a lot. The worlds they explore are really interesting, and the characters are interesting. I will definitely read more by this author.
