The Sunday Post AKA What’s on my (Mostly Virtual) Nightstand 10-16-16

Sunday Post

This turned out to be story collection week. And while each of the collections was pretty darn good, it also reminded me that collections are not my favorite genre. That’s not anything against any of the authors or collections, it’s just that I definitely prefer a sustained narrative. With a collection, it feels like just as I get into a story, it’s over, and I have to start all over again with the next story.

There are not many hours left to enter the Bugs & Hisses Giveaway Hop, but fear not, there are two more giveaway hops starting this week. And as the year draws down, we are entering Giveaway Hop season. There will be plenty more to come for Thanksgiving and the December Holiday marathon.

One thought on “The Sunday Post AKA What’s on my (Mostly Virtual) Nightstand 10-16-16

  1. I’m not usually a fan of story collections, either, though I’ve read and enjoyed some really good ones over the years. Like you, I usually prefer a longer narrative. The exception is collections of short stories set in the same world, either by the author who originated that world (like Katherine Kurtz’s Deryni short stories) or by other authors (like story collections set in Darkover or Valdemar.)

    Anyway, I hope you have a good week and happy reading!
