The nai-spouse and I enjoyed listening to audiobook versions of two novels by Naomi Novik:
Uprooted: TLDR - apprentice to a wizard finds out she is really a druid, with Russian fable-flavored.
Spinning Silver: another Russian fable-flavored story, where a moneylender ends up becoming a Lady of a Faery Court.

I enjoyed the former much more than the latter, but both held our interest during our interstate car trips.

DW, I don't remember seeing your name in a long time! Have you been absent, or have I been oblivious??

No, not oblivious. I'm back after a long, long absence.

Space Opera by Catherynne M Valente was the best book to come out last year in the science fiction genre and should win all the awards.

Ka: Dar Oakley in the Ruins of Ymr by John Crowley was the best book of 2017, but it didn't win awards because people are too busy being oblivious to wonderful literature about immortal, storytelling crows.

I bought Ka. Sadly, I won't get to it for a bit. Too much I must read first. But eventually.

The Dog Stars by Peter Heller. A post apocalyptic story where most of the population has been killed by a mutated flu virus. It's an odd book to read but I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I read that for a book club around 6 years ago and loved it, but only earlier this year returned to him for The River. Turns out I liked it just as much. I'll need to read more of his work soon.
