Escaping into My Books

I never know to say in these things. I guess that says something about me. I read a lot, write stories, and like books. I like a good debate. Nothing else is to say. :-)

Currently reading

The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue
Mackenzi Lee

Reading progress update: I've read 102 out of 389 pages.

An Accident of Stars - Foz Meadows

 

So far this is interesting, mainly due to the world building and premise

 

1. Portal fantasy. I love a good portal or time travel story.

 

2. Diverse characters of different racial makeups. Always good when the book isn't lily white. Though the main character is a blonde haired, white girl.

 

3. Diverse romantic relationships. This is a society where the main type of relationship/marriage is polyamorous. Where any combination of lame or female agree with enter a union. 

 

4. The society also tends towards be matriarchal.

 

All of these factors makes it an interesting world to set a story. As for the story...if is standard fare so far. I can't say I am overly invested as of yet. Not bad, but not great.
