NOTE: I don't post to this blog super-duper often anymore, because I'm busy writing, well, books. (Read more about that here.) For more up-to-date, day-to-day ramblings, visit my Facebook page.

TBR 2014: Book No. 15



Terry Pratchett is a king among fantasy writers. He's written scads of novels, including his wildly popular Discworld series (40 novels and counting in that series alone). He writes for both adults and younger readers. My TBR No. 15 happens to be an ARC of The Carpet People (Clarion, 2013). This is actually a reprint of Pratchett's first novel, published in 1971, but repackaged with his hand-drawn illustrations.
"The perfect starting place for young readers; seasoned Pratchett fans will just revel in his wit, his subversion of tropes and his sense of humanity. . . . Small in scale but large in pleasure."  Kirkus

"Sure to be sought after by Pratchett's fans, young and old, this adventure will also amuse children who have never heard his name."  Booklist
 Here's a chance to revisit a seasoned writer's starting point. Are you in?

That's right: I've committed to reading all the books on my TBR Shelf this year--and blogging them! Click here to read the reviews I've posted so far.

  1. I don't know his work. This might be a good place to start.
