Finished reading, with satisfaction: The Fifth Season by N. K. Jemisin 📚

Good story, it really moves. Not sure exactly the genre. Probably not science fiction. Maybe fantasy? Elements of young adult, but also romance (I think, very adult topics anyway). I very much appreciate the natural, non-judgy, and often kind but not holding back, point of view. Casual writing style works better for me than I expected. Some of the best interpersonal arguments/fights with about the right emotional sting that I’ve read. Bravo! Can’t wait to read the next one.

Some other things I liked:

  • geology! And rocks
  • a building’s structure plays a critical role for a plot point
  • Fun made up words that are suggestive of their origin. I am not a linguist but I still enjoy it
