This week, I definitely did not read as much as I planned to. But I am 100% blaming The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (season three was amazing, and yes, I finished it already). But I still had a pretty good reading week, and there are still books to talk about. So let’s talk about them!
The first book I read this week was The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern. Which, naturally was amazing. I always love books about books, especially if they’re as magical as this one is. Make sure you check out my review if you want to find out more.
Then I finished the audiobook of Autonomous by Annalee Newitz, which I honestly ended up enjoying a lot more than I was expecting. I don’t think I’ve ever read sci-fi like this one. I’ll have a review up tomorrow, so keep your eyes peeled.
Now, onto the books I
should have read this week am currently reading. First is Devil on the Cross by Ngũgĩ wa Thiong’o. It took me a bit to get into, but I am really enjoying it. It’s a post-colonial critique of African capitalism. Not my typical genre, but I wanted to read at least one more book outside my comfort zone before the end of the year.
I’m also reading The God Game by Danny Tobey, which is about a group of friends following challenges given by an AI who thinks it’s God. So far, it’s made me laugh out loud more than once, so I think I’m going to really like this one (review will be up sometime this month).
Finally, I started the audiobook of Sing, Unburied, Sing by Jesmyn Ward. Another book I’m really enjoying so far. I am excited to finish the audiobook this week.
I probably won’t get much reading done today because I am going to The Total Forking Shirt Show in LA! I’m very excited to see the cast of The Good Place do some awesome improv.
I hope you’re all having a great weekend. What are you reading this week?
