Road Narrative Update for September 2018: 10/03/18
Now that the road narrative project is in full swing, I feel it might be a good idea to do monthly recaps as I do with other aspects of this blog.
I read four books: The Million by Karl Schroeder (CCFFFF), The Road to Oz by L. Frank Baum (FF00FF), Still Missing by Chevy Stevens (666666), and An Unkindness of Ghosts by Rivers Solomon (996699). Two of them are science fiction, one of them is a thriller, and one of them is fantasy.
Narratives read by placement in the spectrum
I reviewed or analyzed six books: Bob by Wendy Mass (9999FF), Clockwork Boys by T. Kingfisher (990033), Depth by Lev A.C. Rosen (66CC00), The River at Night by Erica Ferencik (669966), The Witch's Glass by Holly Grant (00CCFF), and, The Wonder Engine by T. Kingfisher (330066). Four were fantasy, one was a science fiction/mystery, and one was a thriller.
Narratives reviewed by placement in the spectrum
Finally I wrote four essays: FFFFCC: Orphans, Utopia and Mazes, FFCC66: Orphans traveling off road through time, FF9966: Orphans off road in the wildlands, and, 99FFFF-990000: Scarecrows and Minotaurs.
Looking towards October, my reading will be heavily influenced by the Cybils as I am a first round reader for middle grade fiction again. Of course it's entirely possible that Cybils books will qualify for my road narrative project. If they do, I will mark them as such and include them in my research. For reviews, I have six planned but that might change as I write Cybils reviews. Bare minimum, I will post four reviews. For the essays, I plan to continue to work my way through the spectrum, outlining and defining the salient pieces of each color. If I feel the need to define terms, I will take a week to do that.
