Ann's under the weather, so Michael shares one book he can't wait for you to read.
A reminder to check out the discussion boards on
our Goodreads group, if you aren't
already. I especially love browsing the monthly thread of what
people are reading. You can find the discussion for January
All the Birds in the
Sky by Charlie Jane Anders is already on the list
of my favorite books of 2016. Here's the review I wrote on
Goodreads: "An utterly unique book. Parts of it bear resemblance to
things I've read before, but as a whole, it's completely original.
And heartbreaking, and confounding, and joy-inducing, and
terrifying. I won't soon forget [the characters of] Patricia
and Laurence. Nor do I ever want to."
It goes on sale January 26.
Correction: I refer to All the Birds in the Sky as Charlie Jane Anders' first novel. In fact, Choir Boy, published in 2005, was her first novel.
