I have still not caught up on reviews from my hot-weather-induced computer hiatus. I am only up to early October...it is taking much longer than I expected!

Published in 2015: 6 (wow!)

I guess my favorite was the Atwood (no surprise there, I love Atwood!), but both The Marvels and Delicious Foods were very good. Get in Trouble is my first introduction to Link's writing, and these stories were good—but short stories don't stay in my mind the way a novel does.


Stay tuned for reviews of the books I finished in the first half of November (and for most of October).
