What I'm Reading

I did a lot of reading this past week, particularly in terms of fanfic, but it was a nice balance overall. :D

What did you recently finish reading?

How to Be an Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi
Really engaging and well-written, and I really appreciate how the author makes clear the difference between the claims of not being racist and active anti-racist behavior. Highly recommend.

Empire Falls by Richard Russo
I honestly didn't have high hopes for this one as it sounded pretty boring, and I've had terrible luck with the Pulitzer Prize winners lately, but I really enjoyed this one!

The Mysterious and Amazing Blue Billings by Lily Morton
I really enjoyed this one! Paranormal romance, two of my favs. :D

At the Bottom of Rock Bottom and Nowhere by L.A. Witt
Got a bunch of free reads from this author and have been making my way through. Not bad, but not particularly good, either.

Notable Fanfic Reads:
-Bad Boy 'verse by [archiveofourown.org profile] mistyeo(Supernatural RPF, J2)
-And Heaven Only Knows by [archiveofourown.org profile] luninosity (X-Men, Cherik)
-Regency Romance Series by [archiveofourown.org profile] superhoney (Supernatural, Destiel)
-Transfigurations by [archiveofourown.org profile] Resonant (Harry Potter, Drarry)

What are you currently reading?

A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab
This has been on my TBR list forever, and I recently exchanged an old book for a free copy at a mini book exchange, so I'm excited to get reading! I've already put the next two books on (digital) hold at the library.

Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers by Mary Roach
Interesting and a bit gruesome, as one might expect given the topic...

What do you think you’ll read next

How to be a Conscious Eater by Sophie Egan
I think this will probably be my next non-fiction read.

Shades of Magic Series by V.E. Schwab
Read the first book in this series now and, assuming I like it, the rest of the series will be next on the list!

Charlie Sunshine by Lily Morton
This just came out today and is the second book in a series I've enjoyed so far by an author that tends to really work for me, so I'm looking forward to it!

-Bond by [archiveofourown.org profile] AnnaFugazzi (Harry Potter, Drarry)
-The Silent World Within You by [archiveofourown.org profile] femmequixotic (Harry Potter, Drarry)
-Fearfully and Wonderfully by [archiveofourown.org profile] semperama (Star Trek RPF, Pinto)
