A book shout-out: Cuckoo Song

It always makes me sad when I read a book that is really lovely, and notice that not many people seem to be talking about it. So I’m going to try and be both a better blogger and a better book-supporter, and give a shout-out whenever one of those books comes along.

Today I want to encourage you to check out Cuckoo Song by Frances Hardinge:

I’d been meaning to read something by Hardinge for quite a while–I have her Fly By Night in my massive ebook backlog. When a trusted friend highly recced Cuckoo Song, the description caught my interest immediately, and I dove right in.

So glad I did!

Why should you read it? For the beautiful writing, the unique world-building that’s so well-integrated into the real world setting, and for the complexity and depth to all the characters and their changing relationships in the midst of this suspenseful adventure.

Any books you’d like to give a shout-out to this week? :)
