What I'm Reading

What did you recently finish reading?

My Grandmother's Hands: Racialized Trauma and the Mending of Our Bodies and Hearts by Resmaa Menakem
Most recent non-fiction read. Interesting read, though some of the language didn't quite resonate.

The House at Sugar Beach by Helene Cooper
Read as part of my Around the World Challengefor Liberia and I really enjoyed it! Liberia isn't a country I knew all that much about and I liked the blend of memoir with providing historical context.

The House in the Cerulean Sea by T.J. Klune
Mixed feelings on this author but this was pretty cute! He curbed a lot of what I dislike about his style to appeal to a more mainstream audience, but I do wish there'd been a bit more actual romance.

What are you currently reading?

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

Misogynoir Transformed: Black Women's Digital Resistance by Moya Bailey
Current non-fiction read.

A Burning by Megha Majumdar
I've heard great things about this debut novel and I'm very curious... I'm also debating using it for India for my Around the World Challenge. I'm about 1/4 of the way through though and I'm... really not impressed so far...

The Stories of John Cheever by John Cheever
Next Pulitzer Prize Winner. There are SIXTY-ONE short stories in this one, and so far I've not enjoyed a single one... yay...

What do you think you’ll read next?

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

Bell, Book and Scandal (Bedknobs and Broomsticks #3) by Josh Lanyon
Next MM romance read.

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. This entry was originally posted here on Dreamwidth.
