Weekly reading review: 9/30-10/6

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

  1. I really enjoyed The Likeness once I decided to just go with the complete implausability of the premise.

  2. Hey hey, Spinning Silver me too! We are reading twins! I am only a tiny ways into it so far, but I’m enjoying it a lot.
