Musing Monday, June 23, 2014

TC is in the sun musing about the chipmunk she sees out the window.
Hopefully that is all she does.  So far this month she has presented me
 with two chipmunks - one alive and one dead but both in my bedroom.
Musing Mondays asks you to muse about one of the following each week.Musing Mondays is sponsored by Should Be Reading.
• Describe one of your reading habits.
• Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you chose that/those book(s).
• What book are you currently desperate to get your hands on? Tell us about it! 
• Tell us what you’re reading right now — what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; what you are (or, aren’t) enjoying it.
• Do you have a bookish rant? Something about books or reading (or the industry) that gets your ire up? Share it with us!
• Instead of the above questions, maybe you just want to ramble on about something else pertaining to books — let’s hear it, then!

I am listening to Written in Read (A Novel of the Others) by Ann Bishop.  
Even though she is a very prolific fantasy/paranormal writer I have not read or listened to any of her other books.  

I am not that far into the book but so far her world building and character development has just blown me away.  She has a world filled with humans and others.  The setting is North America but everything has a different name.  As the book progresses some things are so familiar and then everything becomes very very different.  I am just amazed at how Bishop has kept some things the same in a world that is filled with characters that are so different from what I would expect.  I listen to audio books when I drive and with Written in Red I keep trying to find extra places to go so I can keep listening to the book.  I guess that is a sign of very good writing.
