My Best Book of August and the Runner-Up

Ash and Quill - Rachel Caine Boundary Problems - Greg Bechtel

 

For my taste, Ash and Quill was the best book that I read during the month of August.  No surprise, it features a library, the Library of Alexandria to be exact, in a dystopian world with library scholars as the heroes (and villains). 

 

But I have to also mention Boundary Problems, a book of speculative fiction short stories.  I've met the author and hope to see him again at some conference in the future so I can tell him how much I enjoyed this little volume.

 

And now, friends, I am almost done my summer fluff reading and will be starting on my Halloween Bingo books over the long weekend!

 

Let the games begin!
