Skyward Bound

Skyward

By: Brandon Sanderson

Brandon Sanderson is one of those authors I’ve always wanted to read but at the same time I look at his books and go, “Man those are long.”  So I’m happy to say Skyward (was long) but totally fun and fast and I will definitely be picking up more of his work.

Skyward is also the rare start to a series where I’m like, “Give me the next one now!”

Deadly Flying Bears & Creepy Motherhood

borne

Borne

By: Jeff Vandermeer

Grade: A

A giant flying and deadly bear called Mord. Rampaging biotech left over from the company that brought it all about. Radioactive rain and rivers. Half-buried astronauts. A magician… and it all gets somehow weirder when a scavenger called Rachel finds a strange creature living in Mord’s fur. She gathers him up. She takes him home.

And welcome to a newer creeper motherhood.

And also what it means to be a person. To be real. To be afraid. To be learning. To be out of control.
