What I'm Reading

Like a lot of people, I'm doing a lot of reading right now. It's actually been great to see a lot of authors offering their books for free or heavily discounted in an effort to give people access to reading materials while we're all hunkered down! I've seen a couple of people doing this, so thought it would be fun to throw in my current and planned reading!

What did you recently finish reading?

The Dichotomy of Angels by N.R. Walker
Wasn't overly impressed with this one, TBH. I generally enjoy this author, but they can definitely have some misses for me--they started writing fanfic, and I do think you can tell, not always in a good way. Generally speaking, whenever this author ventures out of regular old modern human romance and tries something in the sci-fi/fantasy/supernatural/historical space, I'm not a fan.

What are you currently reading?

The Moment of Lift: How Empowering Women Changes the World by Melinda Gates
I try and read 10% of a non-fiction book every day, and this is my current read. I'm actually really, really enjoying it a lot.

March by Geraldine Brooks
I'm currently working my way through reading all of the Pulitzer Prize Winners with a goal of reading one a month, so this is my reading for March (thought it was appropriate, LOL). It's a transformative work of Little Women from the perspective of their father who was absent during the novel fighting in the civil war. About a quarter of the way through and it's decently enjoyable so far.

Lots of Fanfic!
Mostly reading a ton in the Supernatural fandom, primarily Wincest and J2.

What do you think you’ll read next

Throwing Hearts by N.R. Walker
The last several books I've read by this author have been duds, so I'm really hoping this one will be a winner!

Counter Culture by J.L. Merrow
Just got this one in from the library (ebook) and I generally enjoy this author so I'm hoping it's good!

More fanfic!
One of my isolation "keep busy" tasks was to go through all of the fics on my Marked for Later page on AO3. I made a spreadsheet (because of course I did), cleaned out fics I really don't plan on reading, added new fics that I'd been saving in my email inbox instead of AO3, and made a plan to start actually working through them. Right now, my goal is to read one HP and one non-HP fic from the list every week.
