Hello! This is my first proper TBR
The Weavers of Saramyr is book one in Chris Wooding’s The Braided Path series. The book is set in a world with magic in it, but an organization of men called the Weavers controls all magic and kills any child born with it, calling them Abberants. The book follows a couple of different protagonists, some abberants themselves, as they navigate an increase in warped and sometimes evil abberants in nature (and in people), as the Weaver’s try and take control over their society.
The Weavers of Saramyr was published by Gollancz in 2004.
The Fifth Season is set in a world very similar to our own in terms of technology, but with the addition of magic and magical people. The book follows a woman named Essun who is searching for her remaining living child while the world is collapsing around her. As empires fall and nations war for control, Essun searches for her child in a post-apocalyptic environment.
The Fifth Season was published by Orbit in 2015.

So far, it’s looking like a good month for books! I’ve ready other titles written by Alex Marshall, Michael J. Sullivan, and Mark Lawrence — can’t say any of them were really outstanding, but they’re all enjoyable reads, which I find is my only real requirement at the moment. Have you read any of these books? Do you have any suggestions?
