Weekly reading review: 1/13/-1/19

Books I finished 

Begone the Raggedy Witches by Celine Kiernan [review]

Merci Suarez Changes Gears by Meg Medina: Meg Medina’s first middle grade is a good one! I loved Merci and her family. The story is very tightly focused on Merci but a warm cast of supporting characters round out the story nicely.

Currently reading

The Dinosaur Artist by Paige Williams: An interesting non-fiction book about–in the simplest terms–the trading of dinosaur fossils. The story becomes a lot more complex than that, however, as the history of paleontology, US and Mongolian politics, and the personal histories of the people involved get drawn in. I’m close to being done with this one and have found it pretty impressive overall.

The Light Between Worlds by Laura Weymouth: I’m not far into this one and the premise sounds really interesting (I’m always a sucker for new takes on portal fantasies). I am curious, though, to see how well it stands on its own.

The European Travel for the Monstrous Gentlewoman by Theodora Goss: Yes, still.

What I’m reading next

Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan

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.
