Friday Reads & Links 1/16/2015

As I ran around getting ready for classes to start next week, I completely forgot it was Friday! I'm curling up with Kyle to finish "Name of the Wind" by Patrick Rothfuss tonight, and then digging into "Wildalone" by Krassi Zourkova on audio tomorrow.

A mess of links to fill your weekend:

  • The shortlist for the Tournament of Books has been released! I thought I read a good batch of new releases last year, but I don't know half the titles on this list. I'm cheering for "An Untamed State," no matter what.
  • The spells in Harry Potter are deeper than you thought.
  • To fill out your TBR, io9 rounds up the best paperback originals in SFF released last year and SFF titles to look forward to this year.
  • Bustle collects 18 feminist books. (I'm a bit miffed at their choosing "Yes, Please" over "Bossypants," but "Yes, Please" is newer.)
  • If you prefer your bookish content in audiovisual form, Cheryl Strayed has revived "Dear Sugar" as a podcast and Medium has launched an author interview series called"Forward."
