A Week in Reading 8/14-8/20

So, it turns out having to actually write about what I read, helps motivate me to finish/clear out my reading


The Epic Crush of Genie Lo (by F.C. Yee, Netgalley, Kindle): guys, this was just so good. It was funny, and sweet and snarky and just great. It put me in a great mood and I’m so happy I got to read it!

Timker (by Paul Harding, paperback): This was gorgeous! It took a while to get pulled in (not because of the book, but because the world is a perpetual tire fire. This is definitely worth a re-read and some annotation. I haven’t annotated before, but because this is slim and thoughtful novel, it would be a good place to start.

Flesh and Bone and Water (by Luiza Sauma, Netgalley, Kindle): Gorgeous book, but I had a lot of mixed feelings about the way things were portrayed, so it’s time for some research, reflection and writing. I am not sure I can recommend it but I’ll keep you updated with how I feel after some more thinking.

Still in progress:

The Unseen World (by Liz Moore, Audible): The books took an unexpected turn and is so good! The writing is still beautiful and lush but I definitely misjudged how far into the novel I was. I think this is because it’s on audiobook and I listen sporadically.

The Dhow House (by Jean McNeill, NetGalley, Kindle): Man, this is another well written book I don’t know how I feel about it. It tackles the problematic nature of the events and people in the novel but it’s  hard to relate to anyone. Hopefully, I can push through and finish this soon!


Infomocracy (Malka Older, hardback): This is political thriller which I am not used to, so I am taking it slow and enjoying the action. Enjoying the jaunts across the world along with a cool cast of characters.

Daughter of Smoke and Bone (Laini Taylor, Paperback): I’ve had this on my bookshelf for a few months and saw that Marines from I am Marines is doing a re-read for the first novel before embarking on the series, so I decided to join her. I wanted to jump into a great fantasy and I really enjoy this author’s writing.
