February Reads

February was the worst reading month I ever had in my reading life. I had two cataract surgeries and one of them left me unable to see much out of my right eye. Fortunately, even though I read so few books this month, three of them were outstanding. Of course, all the books posted are ones that I enjoyed enough to finish and can recommend them. I do not finish reading books that I can't recommend and I only keep track of the books I finish.

Edge of Dreams won't be out until April and at that time I will post it as a book of the week. I found Moonlight Water by Meredith and Win Blevins, a delightful experience. It features a great depiction of the high desert West, characters who become real, and just the right touch of whimsey and mythic reality with an appearance by Edward Abbey. Jo Walton's The Just City is utopian science fiction combined with classical mythology, time travel, and philosophy. Another stunner from the highly acclaimed Walton.
