HP: Ravenclaw/Books

What I'm Reading

What did you recently finish reading?

Misogynoir Transformed: Black Women's Digital Resistance by Moya Bailey
Wanted to love this but it was just okay. Very dry and academic.

The Stories of John Cheever by John Cheever
Took me TEN FULL DAYS to read this collection of short stories, and given how fast a reader I am, this should tell you how painful this was to read.

Fandom (Famous #3) by Eden Finley
I liked this one, but it's my least favorite of the series. Something about it just didn't quite hit.

What are you currently reading?

The Address Book: What Street Addresses Reveal About Identity, Race, Wealth, and Power by Deirdre Mask
Current non-fiction read. Super fascinating so far!

The Patience Stone by Atiq Rahimi
Current audiobook listen as part of my Around the World Challengefor Afghanistan.

Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra
This has been on my TBR list  (and on my physical bookshelf) for over a decade now and I am FINALLY making it happen! Doing double duty as my "owned hardcopy" read for the quarter, as well as part of my Around the World Challenge for Spain.

Chronicles of Alsea Book 4 by Fletcher DeLancey
Trucking right along with my goal to read one book from this series a month!

What do you think you’ll read next?

Coddiwomple by S.E. Harmon
Next MM romance read.

Eragon (Inheritance Cycle Book 1) by Christopher Paolini
My HS friends and I enjoyed our HP reread last year so much we decided to do another YA fantasy series and settled on The Inheritance Cycle since one of my friends never read it, and my other friend only read the first two. I've read the first books multiple times, but the last I read any of them was 10 years ago when the final book came out so I'm curious to see what I think of them now!

Do Better: Spiritual Activism for Fighting and Healing from White Supremacy by Rachel Ricketts
Next non-fiction read.

The Midnight Library by Matt Haig
I really enjoyed this author's non-fiction book, Reasons to Stay Alive and have heard (mostly) good things about his most recent novel so I figured I'd give it a go. Not sure I'll get to this one in the next week, but it's in the queue! This entry was originally posted here on Dreamwidth. Please comment there using OpenID
