It’s that time again! We want to hear all about what you’re reading!
Susan: I’m reading Roslyn Sinclair’s Truth and Measure and I am incredibly resentful of every commitment I have that keeps me from reading more. The ice queen just woke her assistant up at 5am to talk about their (totally hidden, super platonic) feelings, and my bosses expect to do my job instead of screeching about that?!
Tara: Susan, it’s soooooo freaking good that I’m having a hard time reading on my Kindle anything after finishing both parts of that duology. It’s my favourite book ever now.
On audio, I’m listening to Harvey Fierstein’s autobiography I Was Better Last Night. ( A | BN | K | AB ) I’m still only in the first hour or two, but there’s something both beautiful and heartbreaking about how he discusses growing up as a gay, fat, and Jewish kid so many decades ago.
Carrie: I just finished Nettle and Bone by T. Kingfisher. Yes, it was wonderful, and I look forward to writing a review of it. I just started Laziness Does Not Exist by Devon Price, and as of page 18 I haven’t learned much about why laziness does not exist but I have learned that I have a LOT OF FEELINGS about this topic that I didn’t actually know that I had.
Amanda: Loved Nettle and Bone! Kingfisher balances quirky and dark very well.
Shana: I’m bouncing between books right now. I’m reading Land by Simon Winchester, ( A | BN | K | AB ) which I want to be a polemic on land reform and is actually a meandering collection of moments in the history of land ownership.
I’m also reading Three to Love by Rebel Carter but if they don’t bang soon, I’m going to bail.
Claudia: Bumblebeeing my way through several, too, and slightly jealous of all the good-book feelings here!
Elyse: I haven’t picked up a new book yet but on my 13 hrs of travel yesterday (thanks Spirit airlines! You suck!) I watched the HBO docuseries Black & Missing. Anyone who likes true crime should watch this. There’s so much bias to address both racially and gender based (ie there is no such thing as a “child prostitute”)
Maya: Ohhhhhhhh, thank you for the rec!! I’m currently going hard on true crime!!
I just finished listening to Bound to Battle God by Ruby Dixon. I generally enjoyed it, so I’m pretty excited about working my way through her back catalog. I also just started listening to This Poison Heart by Kalynn Bayron. ( A | BN | K | AB ) So far loving it. It’s the best when a truly beautiful book cover is only the beginning of the good stuff a book has to offer!
