Happy March! This is what I’m currently reading!
An Absolutely Remarkable Thing by Hank Green – This is my work book – the one I keep in my work bag and read on my lunch breaks. So far, it’s pretty interesting. I don’t think I’m 100% hooked yet, but that could easily still happen. This got a lot of hype last year or so and while I was interested I wanted to let the focus die down a bit so I wouldn’t be disappointed. I’m glad I did, as I said, I’m not 100% hooked yet and if I would have started reading it at the epitome of its online hype I probably would have been disappointed. But for now I’m just waiting and hoping I’ll get into the story. Which like I said, could still totally happen.
The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet by Becky Chambers – This is my current audio book! So far it’s pretty good and I like the characters. The narrator is doing a decent job at distinguishing their voices so it’s pretty easy to follow, which I appreciate. This book will count for Fantasy Bingo if I can get it done this month. I’m already super aware I won’t be completely filling out the card this year, but I’m hoping I can at least get a bingo or two. Maybe next year will be better!
Seven Blades in Black by Sam Sykes – I actually just started this book this morning! I read the first chapter, decided ‘yes I’m reading this now’ and then put it down to write this. After, I’ll be picking this book right back up. I honestly don’t know too much about this aside from what the first chapter has told me: That it follows Sal the Cacophony as she tells her tale to her jailers before she’s executed. I tend to like this kind of storytelling in general, so I’m hoping I also like the main character too!
The Wilful Princess and the Piebald Prince by Robin Hobb – Technically I haven’t started this book yet, but it’s a buddy read I’ll be reading this week with Zezee @Zezeewithbooks! It’ll likely be started today as well, if not tomorrow. This is a novella set in Hobb’s Realm of the Elderlings universe and man I am so ready. I miss this world so much, and I hope I don’t get all emotional (but let’s be honest, Hobb’s gonna make me).
And that’s it! There are also a few manga I plan on picking up soon but I figure those read so fast, they’re not worth mentioning now and will just be mentioned in my wrap up instead.
