Because I'm still chipping away at my own ensemble novel, I've been reading a lot of examples of multi-perspective books across genres. Here's what I finished in January.
Back in September, there was a huge MyLesFic sale, and I snagged the second book in Markinson's TMG series. I already had the first, and with the release of book 2, it was the perfect time to read both. Interested in your own copies? The images above are linked to the Amazon purchase pages.
Read on for my review, and know I do not do spoilers, so you're safe to continue.
According to my Kindle downloads page, I purchased Book 1, Maladaptation, back in October 2015. I read about 50% back then, and for some reason the book got buried under a pile of other reading. I suspect my constant library binge reading had something to do with it, as I was determined to get as much play out of the Kansas City Library as I could. When my library card finally expired, I came back to find that Ramie completed two more books in the series and given them all cohesive covers. I jumped back in!
This is the start of monthly Indie book reviews. I may do them more frequently, but I figure an indie a month is a good goal I can hopefully meet. To view Adan Ramie's Amazon Author page, click the image above.
Every fall around September or October, I start to itch for a good Poppy Z. Brite novel. While I love the series that she talks about in the video at the end of this entry, it's the earlier works, Wormwood, Lost Souls, Drawing Blood, and even Exquisite Corpse that I turn to when the weather turns cooler and Halloween draws near. So, it's no surprise that when I saw Wormwood is on sale for Kindle for $1.99 this week that I grabbed a virtual copy.
I had no idea that reading this collection again (I used to have it in paperback) would lead to a break-up story.
