Books I added to my To-Read list recently


Wimsey also enjoys books

I haven’t written this type of post with any regularity, but I thought it might be a fun glimpse into what I’m thinking about reading–though I’m not making any promises about when that will happen!

Making this list also led to the realization that a lot of my book recs come from the same people. With that in mind, I asked on Twitter for favorite inclusively feminist SFF critics & bloggers. I’d love to hear your favorites!

The Guns Above by Robyn Bennis

  1. DEFY THE STARS and HUNTED are both wonderful. I haven’t read any of the others but will be interested in seeing your reviews if/when you do!

  2. How very cool! Rise of the Jumbies is the only one of these I’ve heard of, though it is on my want-to-read list.

  3. We have a post like this coming up on our blog too. Sometimes I do hate to write about the books I plan to read – because it seems like the minute I do … I don’t want to read it anymore.

    I found That Thing We Call a Heart frustrating; the main character kept making stupid decisions the entire time. Definitely not inaccurately stupid things (I cringe to think of some of the things I did as a teenager), but not a super enjoyable reading experience.

    On the other hand I’ve recently started reading Noteworthy by Riley Redgate and it’s hilarious and involves my favourite trope, girl going undercover in a secret society (or in this case a prestigious all-male a cappella octet). I super recommend it so far!
