confessions of ugly stepsister

While writing this post, I must admit I haven’t actually started reading this book yet. I probably will have read a few pages, once this has been published.

I’m finally getting around to reading Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister by Gregory Maguire author of “The Wicked Years,” series. Based on the children’s story Cinderella. Maguire uses his typical flair to retell the classic tale from the perspective of the sisters left behind.

The story is set in 17th century Holland and since I’m not familiar with it at all. I’ll just have to read on to find out more about it.

I finished reading Kindred by Octavia Butler, yesterday afternoon. The fantastical tale of a modern woman of the 70s transported to the antebellum South to save the life of a young boy named Rufus. Our heroine endures, the systematic abuse of the time period while trying to complete her mission and return home. This book will infuriate you, bring tears to your eyes and have you cheering for the unspeakable. But if you read it, you’ll be happy you did.

I also recently finished Hart’s Hope by Orson Scott Card. I respect that man as a pioneer in the speculative fiction genre but regretfully disliked this book a lot. The reasons are endless and you can read more about them here. Definitely check it out for yourself before making your final opinions.

What do you think you’ll read next?

I’m honestly not sure I’ve been meaning to finish reading American Gods by Neil Gaiman, but I also wouldn’t mind starting a new series…decisions….

I am halfway through Orson Scott Card’s Hart’s Hope. I discovered the book while reading Card’s How to Write Science Fiction and Fantasy. While Card explained his worldbuilding techniques he also described how he came to design the world in Hart’s Hope. How a simple mishap on his mao created the world and its characters. Set during a time of wizards, Kingdoms and the introduction of Monotheistic religion  (Christianity) the book seems to be about a town who’s monarch is thwarted replaced and exiled continuously through means of divine intervention and sorcery. So far the story is shaping up to be an interesting one though almost halfway through I’m not sure who I’m rooting for.

What did you recently finish reading?


I finished reading “How to Write Science Fiction and Fantasy by Orson Scott Card. This book is the reason I started reading Hart’s Hope. Prior to buying this book I was oblivious to who OSC was but I’m better off for having read it and was able to complete the outline for my very own novel.

What do you think you’ll read next?

I am as always lately unsure of what the next book will be. On the one hand starting a new stand-alone novel is always fun. A completed story that doesn’t warrant a new bookshelf though I did purchase quite a few series last year that I’ve been looking over. We shall see.
