I haven’t been writing here much, because I haven’t been reading nearly as much as I want to. Real life has been quite hectic recently, which inevitably ends up with a growing mountain of unread library books.
Having said that, I am also in the middle of reading some great books at the moment, so hopefully my dry spell is at an end.
Starry River of the Sky by Grace Lin, which I’m reading with librarian book club because Grace Lin is wonderful. I’m loving how beautiful these books are as objects–the illustrations, the weight of the paper, the whole thing is just lovely.
The Wee Free Men by Terry Pratchett, which I’m rereading with a couple of friends. I’m only a few chapters in but am already having severe Feelings, because Tiffany is the best and I love her forever the end.
The Obelisk Gate by N.K. Jemisin, which so far is promising to be even more complex and fascinating than the first book!
I’m also skimming through Susan Cooper’s biography of John Langstaff, which I’ve read before, for Reasons.
