What I'm Reading

What did you recently finish reading?

Our Time Is Now: Power, Purpose, and the Fight for a Fair America by Stacey Abrams
Like so many people, I stan Stacey Abrams and I thought this was a clear and engaging read on voter suppression.

Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
This was my hardcopy read for the quarter and my first book by this author! Brilliant writing, and I did enjoy it, though it was a bit long and relies heavily on flashbacks/non-linear storytelling which isn't my favorite, so that detracted a bit from my personal overall enjoyment.

The Tin Box by Kim Fielding
Another enjoyable read from this author! I've not yet hit a dud, though this is only the third one I've read from them. But they're one of the few MM romance authors my library carries and there are several more books in the catalogue, so I'm looking forward to reading more!

The Murder Between Us by Tal Bauer
I really enjoy this author, particularly his murder mystery mm romances, and this one was another solid read.

Notable Fanfic Reads:
-Streetlight People by [archiveofourown.org profile] ladyblahblah (Star Trek, Spirk)

What are you currently reading?

Instant Karma by Melissa Meyer
Currently on pause because my hold lapsed at the library.

The Caine Mutiny by Herman Wouk
Current Pulitzer Prize Winner read. About 3/4 of the way through and I've generally been enjoying.

Didn't See That Coming: Putting Life Back Together When Your World Falls Apart by Rachel Hollis
Current non-fiction read.

What do you think you’ll read next?

Ivy Grove Duology by Jaclyn Osborn
I've heard good things about this author, so I'm excited to give this a go and see what I think!

Semicolon: The Past, Present, and Future of a Misunderstood Mark by Cecilia Watson
Next non-fiction read!

Concrete Rose by Angie Thomas
This is set in the The Hate U Give universe and I'm very excited! I've loved Thomas's other two books, so I'm hoping this one is just as excellent.

The Greenhollow Duology by Emily Tesh
I have both of these books on audio and on my kindle so I'm still deciding which to go with, but I'm excited!

-Good Intentions by [archiveofourown.org profile] alittlebriton(Shadowhunters, Malec)
-A Different Matter by [archiveofourown.org profile] djhedy & [archiveofourown.org profile] moonix (All for the Game, Andreil)
-Heart Like Neon by [archiveofourown.org profile] lumosed_quill (Harry Potter, Drarry) This entry was originally posted here on Dreamwidth. Please comment there using OpenID
