Welcome to another week of Friday Reads! We’ve got a pretty packed Saturday, but I’m determined to get some reading time. Peter works Saturday morning, so I’m planning to spend those hours with a book.
Last week, I was just starting Queen of Swords by R.S. Belcher. I finished it this week and Oh. My. God. This is my absolute favorite of the three books in the Golgotha series, and may be my favorite Belcher yet. Maude is such a fantastic character, and Belcher does such a good job of writing complexity into his characters. I don’t want to say too much about the plot, since it is tied to the previous Golgotha books, but I will say that the cast of characters is filled with amazing bad ass women (which I always love) and the perfect amount of otherworldly drama and adventure. If you are up for a dark, occasionally violent, weird western plus some, I can’t recommend this series, and this book in particular, highly enough.
Now that I’ve finished Queen of Swords, and am getting close to the end of Ancillary Justice, I get to pick a new book to start my weekend! As of this post, I actually haven’t decided what I’m going to turn to next. I think I’ll pick up a mystery/thriller/murder novel…it’s been a while since I’ve read a good murder story. If you’re interested in what I picked up, go check us out on Twitter or Instagram! I’ll be posting about my current Friday read there.
