So, many famous writers have said that to be a good writer, you must read good stories. Recently, I've lucked out with a few excellent books, in both the fantasy and sci-fi genres. This month, I would like to share with you a Hugo-Award winner, The Fifth Season,* by N.K. Jemisin.
Why You Should Read: The Fifth Season
My Top 3 (Reasons to Read This Book):
- The Stillness is a land rocked by catastrophic quakes and tremors with which a vengeful Father Earth punishes the inhabitants.
- This is the way the world ends...for the last time. How cool is THAT premise?!
- The heroine and her love interest are morally ambiguous, mischievous, don't like people much, and have great heart...I secretly wish that I can be like this in real life.
