I am in the series rut. Every book I have read in the past two months, (including the book I'm reading now), has been a book in a series.
I need some good stand alone titles to read. And I think it's time for me to woman-up and read the award winners for this year.
I'm not sure why that feels like a chore. I'm not sure why I shy away from books with "messages" or "literary value" these days. It is the way I feel though. So reading Philip Reeves' Victorian sci-fi romp, Mothstorm, is exactly what I want to be doing right now - and will be when this blog post is done.
Suggestions for non-series books that might not make me break out in hives will be gratefully accepted.
