For some reason, I seem to have started this year off on a sci-fi/fantasy kick, reading books by Neil Gaiman and Octavia Butler. I continued that in February with The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms by N.K. Jemison. I was totally consumed by this book and finished it in about a day and a half. I definitely recommend it; it’s the first of a trilogy, and I plan to read the other two books by the end of the year.
