I like post-apocalyptic settings of all forms, generally. As long as they're not too fantasy/sci-fi.

I generally dislike fantasy but the TV show The Magicians is great.

Read my posts with the following stupid accent: Canada
I'm re-reading Atwood's The Blind Assassin, and remembering how much I like her style.

A taste:

The protagonist is an elderly woman now, and living alone in a small Canadian town. It's winter; there's been a snowstorm. Myra and Walter are middle-aged neighbours.

Quote:
Myra called to ask if I was all right, She said Walter would be over as soon as the snow stopped, to dig me out.

"Don't be silly, Myra," I said, "I'm quite capable of digging myself out." (A lie - I had no intention of lifting a finger. I was well supplied with peanut butter, I could wait it out. But I felt like company, and threats of action on my part usually speeded up the arrival of Walter.)

"Don't you touch that shovel!" said Myra, "Thousands of old - of people your age die of heart attacks from shovelling every year! And if the electricity goes out, watch where you put the candles!"

"I'm not senile," I snapped. "If I burn the house down it will be on purpose!"

I've got a shiny new book The Holocaust - A New History by Laurence Rees. I'd definitely read this one in the middle of a busy coffee shop with the cover displayed to the world.

I'm on a bit of a WWII and the events surrounding it kick, currently part way through The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, written in the 60's by a guy who was living in Germany in the 30's. It's part history and part first person account, and part diatribe against homosexuality . Some of Hitlers earliest allies were gay. I did not know that.

Ernst Röhm

"allies" is the right word because by the Night of the Long Knives they weren't friends

It's 1933, Hitler has persuaded parliament to give him the power to act without parliamentary consent. That sounds eerily familiar.

Just finished reading Wyntertide, which is the second book in the Rotherweird series by Andrew Caldecott.

Supernatural mystery with a steampunk feel to it.

I enjoyed it. Took about 3 chapters to get properly in to it because of various reasons, but it was worth persevering. Set in an alternative earth with long extremely cold winters. Humans hibernate to survive the winter. The book is set over this period of hibernation.

Now reading the Girl in the Tower by Katherine Arden. Fantasy based in dark ages Russia.

A secret history of witches by Louise Morgan

I read this book with gritted teeth. It starts off with mobs of rabid villagers trying to burn witches .... in 1821.
