The Kaiju Preservation Society is the latest release from famed SFF author John Scalzi. It is a story about a group of people tasked with preserving kaiju, which are interdimensional, giant flying creatures (I picture a cross between a dragon and a dinosaur). I got Avatar-meets-Jurassic Park vibes from this book. It was an enjoyable read.

The Hollow Gods is an adult fantasy horror novel with an incredibly intriguing premise dealing with a small town and mysteries plaguing it. Is it actually supernaturally cursed by an evil spirit kidnapping women with the aid of vicious wolves? Or do its inhabitants suffer from mass hysteria on the regular and turn on each other at random?
I jumped in with zero knowledge of The Stormlight Archive (I haven’t even read the synopsis’) and I found Dawnshard a fascinating and completely compelling read. I am sure that there are spoilers for the first 3 in the series (although I wouldn’t know what they are), and I’m sure there are things I didn’t understand, or get the significance of. BUT, I had a great time reading Dawnshard and I found Sanderson’s writing so accessible that I actually found it really easy to understand what was going on.
