Welcome to the Feature & Follow Hop, hosted by Parajunkee’s View and Alison Can Read!
If you’re here for the first time, I’d love if you could follow via email, RSS, LinkyFollowers or Networked Blogs. Just let me know your follow method of choice in the comments, and I’ll be happy to return the favor.
And if you’re not new, welcome back! Repeat visitors are better than finding a pair of jeans that make you look two sizes smaller than you actually are, yet are still strangely comfortable. But not better than finding out that they are on sale for 75% off, because that would be ridiculous.
Today’s question is:
What are you reading right now? What do you think of it?
I am currently reading The City’s Son by Tom Pollock. I requested it on NetGalley because another blogger — and I can’t even remember who it was now — was raving about it a couple months ago. So far I’m only about 15% of the way through, and I honestly don’t know my thoughts. The world is fascinating, but I’m not completely connected to the characters yet. And I’m not sure if I’m a fan of stories told from two POVs where one is first person and one is third. I like consistency in multiple POV stories.
So I’m undecided. I’ll let you know my thoughts when I finish. At least I can say this for sure — the world-building is unique. Very unique. There are demon-esque trains. That fight. And a being made out of garbage scraps, who is, as far as I can tell, a good guy. That right there made it worth picking up.
