I am writing this from the Couch of Great Sniffles, having caught a cold last week. I always seem to catch a cold around my birthday! (which is next week) It’s unjust.
What I finished
The Likeness by Tana French: Creepy and effective–I liked the ways it seemed to be in conversation with past mysteries and thrillers, even if that meant the basic premise was pretty unbelievable.
The Lost Books: The Scroll of Kings by Sarah Prineas: A fun middle grade fantasy, and the start of a new series. I am always so-so about fantasy librarians and this is no exception, but it’s still a solid and engaging read.
What I’m currently reading
Persuasion by Jane Austen: An old friend that I haven’t read in a long time.
Spinning Silver by Noami Novik: So far I’m really liking this one!
She Loves You (Yeah Yeah Yeah) by Ann Hood: Light-ish YA about a Beatles-obsessed teenager.
Once a Witch by Carolyn MacCullough [ebook]: I’m not very far into this one but I think I’ll like it, depending on how the romance aspect plays out.
What I’m reading next
A Room Away From the Wolves by Nova Ren Suma
Midnight Robber by Nalo Hopkinson
The Fire Rose by Mercedes Lackey
