Today's feature is What I'm Reading, wherein I shall tell you what I'm reading. Complicated, I know, but I'm confident you crazy kids can keep up with my doublespeak. In the future I think I'm going to make this a Tuesday item. Not sure why -- I guess it just feels like a Tuesday sort of thing.
I realized I was being unintentionally cagey about my new obsession last week, so I'm here to clear up the mystery. My new literary love is John Scalzi, and, more specifically, I've fallen head over heels for his Old Man's War series. This week I'm already on book three, The Last Colony.
Since this is the third book (the first two being Old Man's War and The Ghost Brigades) I don't want to reveal too much. Suffice it to say, Scalzi blows my skirt up something fierce. The Old Man's War series -- a wonderful series deserving of a much snappier title -- is military sf with both charm and a heart. And there is also a plethora of strong female characters, something careful readers (or anyone who has read my bio or any of the other posts on here) will know that I love. These books are funny and entertaining, and I really can't recommend them highly enough.
Also work reading is Mr. Scalzi's blog.
