Currently listening to Blues Traveler.
I finished reading Emma Bull’s Bone Dance this week. It was a very strange read. As soon as I thought I understood the plot a new piece was uncovered and the world would shift. It was like this to the very end of the book. I enjoyed the book and would like to read it again once my mind has digested this first read through. The general plot is a post apocalyptic world caused by the “horsemen”. Voodoo and shamanism feature heavily in the culture and society. The main character Sparrow has secrets that are slowly revealed as the books progresses, but because he is hiding so much, his friends are not sharing either and secret after secret is revealed. Engrossing read.
I also finished Widdershins, by Charles de Lint. Utterly amazing as always. I was a little disturbed by how neat and tidy the ending was. However the author had said this was his final book with this main character, Jilly Coppercorn, so maybe he was doing it deliberately so there are no loose ends that could lead to another book.For this book you really have to read a few other Charles de Lint books before you try this one, there is a little back story but not enough to really catch you up to the main characters. I suggest starting with Ivory and the Horn or Someplace to be flying. Spiritwalk, Moonheart, Memory and dream are some amazing stories as well with the character Jilly Coppercorn in them. However, Onion Girl is the main book to read as in this book it is Jilly who is the main character and her life the focal point of the novel.
Currently studying for exams so no new novels for a while, but I am eying my new copy of In a Sunburned Land and A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson.
