This week I started off reading a number of short stories mostly because I was between books and I didn’t have anything I really wanted to read. Then I got back into Nina Kiriki Hoffman’s books.
First I began with Thresholds. This is a kids book but it was very very fun and very very enjoyable. I was lucky that I had Meeting, which is the second book in the series,, to read right after it, because I didn’t want it to end. My only downside of Meeting is that it feels like the story should go on and there isn’t a third book. Someone said if they were a child and found these books, Hoffman would be their new favorite author for life. I totally agree. These are just fun.
Next I got Spirits that Walk in Shadow. I really wish I had read the first two but I liked this one even though I hadn’t. The other two just would have prolonged the enjoyment.
Catalyst was my final read for the week. This was the weakest of the books as it seemed to wander near the end. I do find that Hoffman’s books often do that as if the idea gets so large that she has a hard time reigning it in and ending it. Still these are all quite enjoyable young adult and juvenile reads and if you like that level of reading sometimes, she is very worthwhile.
