I am currently reading my way through a long list of science fiction and fantasy titles. (http://www.npr.org/2011/08/07/138938145/science-fiction-and-fantasy-finalists if you are interested in the list).
I read more this July than I anticipated, chalking up 21 books. These four really stood out for me and I'll definitely be interested to read more from these authors.
In fact, I already have Tasha Alexander's A Fatal Waltz in my reading pile at home. I'm hoping to add the second Shades of London (The Madness Underneath) to my Halloween Bingo reading list. If I'm lucky, I'll also be able to use Deanna Raybourn's A Treacherous Curse in the Halloween cause.
I also note that my public library has two more titles by Siobhan Dowd: The London Eye Mystery and A Swift Pure Cry. Once I've notched a few more titles towards this year's reading goals, perhaps I'll wander off mission with one of them.
Still a month left in the Summer of Spies! I've got lots of good reading ahead.
