I’ve been lost in my story so reading other stories has occupied little of my time this year. I feel like my tastes are in the midst of changing though perhaps that’s a bit incorrect. The way I read is changing; instead of gulping down words like I’m starving, I am reading slower so my reading pace is slowing down. Which is why I only read 2 books last week:
- The Dark Days Club by Alison Goodman
Though this wasn’t the best book I have read this year, it established the world and characters perfectly so I can’t wait for the sequel.
- One More Thing: Stories and Other Stories – B. J. Novak
I enjoyed this. Some stories more than others. Review later this week maybe.
Books I’m Currently Reading:
- Dance Dance Dance by Haruki Murakami
About 15 or so chapters in. The protagonist is really creepy.
- Passenger – Alexandra Bracken
I’m not finding it terribly gripping though I do enjoy the social commentary.
- The House of Shattered Wings – Aliette de Bodard
A sophisticated fantasy with a POC protagonist. Beautifully written and envisioned. I’m enjoying this title quite a bit.
- Covenant’s End by Ari Marmell
I’m enjoying this though my heart is still quaking.
- Hold Your Own – Kate Tempest
Enjoying this quite a bit.
To Read in the Following Week:
Obviously all the books I’m currently reading but in case I get done with them, well, once I finish Passenger, I want to start An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir. I also want to read A School for Brides by Patrice Kindl and A New Hope: The Princess, The Scoundrel, and The Farm Boy by Alexandra Bracken.
