2014: Late Summer Recap

Catch up with the latest posts from Mermaid Vision Books with this handy guide to the month!

Okay, I can’t be the only one who’s stunned that it’ll be October in less than 24 hours. The last few months of the summer have been so full that I’ve been away from this blog longer than expected. I’m working my way back into regular posting though, so thanks for sticking around!

HCC Frenzy’s Annual Blogger Fall Preview was awesome, as always, and I loved getting the chance to catch up with my bookish friends from both Toronto and Ottawa. I also attended Fan Expo for the fourth year in a row–my Day 1 and 2/3 recaps can be found on Women Write About Comics. The Korean drama Rooftop Prince also captured my attention for a few weeks, though I sadly can’t say the same for the Maze Runner film.

But with lots of fall books on my reading horizons, it’ll be back to reviews and anticipation for winter novels!

The Death of Us by Alice Kuipers: “The Death of Us is a case study in triple-vision, taking a familiar type of story and dividing it in some very interesting ways.”

Mortal Danger by Ann Aguirre: “With a mythology that never feels concrete enough to ground the rest of the story, Mortal Danger was not a good bargain for my time.”

The Premise: FBI Agent Olivia Dunham isn’t expecting the call she gets one night, but who could have expected what she would find inside the mysterious plane that lands at Logan Airport? Olivia’s work on the investigation leads her to scientist Walter Bishop, his work in fringe science, and his prickly son Peter, who is Olivia’s only hope for getting the information she needs.
