Weekly reading review: 10/21-10/27

What I finished

Summer Bird Blue by Akemi Dawn Bowman: reviewed here

Jade City by Fonda Lee: reviewed here

Exit Strategy by Martha Well: I believe this is the final Murderbot novella (but then we’re getting a novel! yay!!) and I really liked it–Murderbot has emotions and has to admit that some humans are its friends. I did feel that the ending was a tad abrupt but I can live with that knowing that this wasn’t truly the final end of the story.

Border by Kapka Kassabova: reviewed here

What I’m currently reading

Persuasion, still. I should really focus on wrapping it up this week!

A Scholar of Magics by Caroline Stevermer: I’m rereading this one and enjoying it, although I think I liked A College of Magics more when I read it earlier this year. It seems like every time I read these books my favorite flip-flops.

Dragon’s Green by Scarlett Thomas: So far this is intriguing but not gripping; we’ll see if I end up being in the right mood for it ultimately.

What I’m reading next

The Language of Power by Rosemary Kirstein

Notes from a Small Island by Bill Bryson

Titanic: Voices from the Disaster by Deborah Hopkinson

By Maureen LaFerney

My name is Maureen. I currently work as a library assistant in a public library in the Indianapolis area, and also just so happen to be a voracious reader. I frequently end up under a cat.
