The Fated Sky by Mary Robinette Kowal
Ben’s first review of the year
it was amazing
If it feels like just yesterday that I read The Calculating Stars , that’s because it practically was! I seldom read sequels so close together, but once in a while I manage to buy them at the same time. In this case, I rushed out and bought The Fated Sky the weekend after I finished the first book and very deliberately made this my first book of 2019—I like to start my reading year off with something I know I will enjoy.

Part of me really just

Worldshaper by Edward Willett
Ben’s last review of the year
liked it
As I’ve said before and will say again, one reason I love the library is for book discovery. I had zero idea what I was in for with Worldshaper. In this case, I saw book 2 on the New Books shelf, and fortuitously book 1 was also present in that very same library branch. So I borrowed both on a wing and a prayer, and here we are. Perfectly serviceable portal fantasy for some holiday reading from Edward Willett!

Heads up that I put a spoiler flag on
