thinking out loud

WWW Wednesdays (Sep 5th)

What are you currently reading?

Yesterday I started on Ruin of Stars by Linsey Miller. To be honest, I don’t remember the ending of the previous book that much, so it feels a little like I’m going in cold. But I do recall thinking that the fact that Sal is genderfluid wasn’t explored as well as it could have been, and so far (I’m at chapter 8 now) this book is better on that aspect. Also, Emerald is aro! I was so happy with that revelation, really. It’s so rare to find aro characters.

I’m also still reading A Very Large Expanse of Sea and rereading Chernow’s Hamilton biography.

 

What did you recently finish reading?

I finished Roshani Chokshi’s The Gilded Wolves two days ago, and I STILL don’t really know what to say about it other than maybe lots of angry, heart-eye and crying face emojis. Literally all the feels, maybe? Ha. This book is coming out in January 2019 and is one of the most satisfying YA reads I’ve had in awhile.

 

What do you think you’ll read next?

N.K. Jemisin’s The Fifth Season is definitely high on the list right now. I just got the audiobook, and I’m planning to get a physical copy at the end of the month but I’ll probably listen to it first. I can’t wait! (I guess I literally can’t wait, because we’ve chosen this title for our next SFF book club.)
