I have a lot of books sitting around that I have not read — some as physical copies, some on my Kobo. I tend to stockpile books and then forget about them as I am lured by the new and shiny, so I’m looking for a push to get me to read some of these buried treasures.
I thought that towards the end of the month I would pick a few titles and ask you, dear readers, to tell me what I should read. Please let me know your selection in the comments — it doesn’t matter if you’ve read the book or not! I will do my best to read the majority choice by the end of next month. If there is no consensus, I’ll pick one by random selection.
The titles below are well-regarded fantasies that all happen to be written by women. They have all been sitting on my e-reader for far too long. Which one will I read in May? I can’t wait to find out!
Parable of the Sower by Octavia Butler
A Stranger in Olondria by Sofia Samatar
