I looked back over my novels read for last year and I'm disappointed with myself, so I've made firm goals for this year. So far, I've read three books this month, which is considerably better than most months last year.

The Last Unicorn by Peter S. Beagle: Finally! I've loved the movie ever since I first saw it on HBO back in the 80's but I never read the book. I loved it and Beagle's writing style is so beautiful. I found this to be bittersweet and while I loved it, I felt a bit melancholy in the end. I have A Fine and Private Place in my TBR and put Tamsin on my PBS wishlist and it already got posted, so it's on its way.

Foundation by Mercedes Lackey: I love reading Lackey's books in the winter because they are such amazing comfort reads. Mags seemed a bit too important for such a young character and only a trainee, but whatever. My favorite sequence was the Midwinter Festival. I'm looking forward to the rest of this trilogy (?).

Stormqueen! by Marion Zimmer Bradley: Well, I finally got back to Darkover. I read Darkover Landfall over 10 years ago and was less than impressed so I never got back to the series, even though I kept collecting it. I liked this one a lot better, even though the end was so tragic. I particularly liked that this book addressed a lot of my misgivings from the first book (chronologically) about the breeding program and forced pregnancy. I was intrigued by the Towers and the matrix stones and can't wait to read more. (And yes, I can see the MZB influence on Lackey's writing).
