2017 book 34

N.K. Jemisin's The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms
I kept wishing I could read something like The Inheritance Trilogy--something epic and engrossing and wonderful--and then I realized I could just reread The Inheritance Trilogy. :) (But if you have epic book recs for me, feel free to share.) I had forgotten a few of the details since the last time I read it, but the bones of the story have stayed with me. I like how Jemisin puts her own twist on the usual story of a girl coming to court to take her place as leader and deal with politics--not to mention gods.  And I found the narrative voice much more effective and interesting this time. Ah, NK Jemisin, can't you write a book every month?
