Holiday Buying Guide 2022

by Donna Huber


We have stuffed ourselves with turkey and now trees are going up so it means it is time for my annual guide to the best books to buy for the reader on your gift giving list. I've read 136 books so far this year but only 15 earned 5 stars from me (not including a few beloved reads). They fall mainly into two broad categories - historical fiction and crime fiction - not surprising since those are my favorite genres. I do have some books of nonfiction and other genres to recommend as well.

The Red Scholar's Wake by Aliette de Bodard ~ a Review

by MK French


Tech scavenger Xích Si is captured by pirates of the Red Banner, and their leader, Rice Fish, surprisingly offers Xích Si marriage. Both would benefit from the deal: Xích Si needs protection and Rice Fish needs a technical expert to investigate the death of her first wife, the Red Scholar. That should have been all to the arrangement, but feelings develop as the war against piracy continues and their own investigation reveals more than they bargained for. Their business arrangement has evolved into something much more personal.
