Reading Envy 187: Sentient Snails and Spaceships

Paula joins Jenny from New Zealand, where everyone is getting a little antsy from having to stay home. Jenny chats poetry and non-fiction while Paula brings historical and science fiction, and one gritty regional novel winning all the awards in Australia. In fact, we talk about several book awards. One of these books doesn't come out in the USA until June, but that's publishing for you!
