Quite frequently in our Thoughtful Thursday discussions, I will reference books that I loved, only to discover that we don’t have reviews for them. Such was the case with The Blue Sword by Robin McKinley, which many people had referenced. I was so embarrassed that we didn’t have a review for that book that I went and reread it so I could write a review.
We have an amazing staff of reviewers here trying to keep up with the ever increasing tide of new books while trying to back-fill reviews of older books as we have time. Here is where I would like to turn to you, our dear readers, for assistance. Are there older books we don’t have reviews for that constitute an egregious oversight on our part — either because they are so awesomely good that ever fantasy aficionado should read them, or that they are so horrendously bad that we need to warn people away as a public service?
Poke around the site and see what we’re missing, so we can expend our limited resources where they will do the most good. Try to focus on books that are at least five years old. We’ll do our best about taking your recommendations to heart when choosing what to read next when we get our stacks of ARCs under control.
Post your response and we’ll enter you in a drawing to win a copy of Mark Chadbourn’s The Devil in Green, the first book in his series The Dark Age. We have a few copies to give away, thanks to Pyr.
