Currently Reading: GIDEON THE NINTH by Tamsyn Muir
The buddy read continues!  I’m about 2/3 of the way through this, and on track to finish ahead of my review date, which is the end of next week.  It’s picked up a bit after a slow start, and has turned into a gothic manor mystery, a development I was not expecting. More thoughts coming next week!

Recently Finished: THE THOUSANDTH FLOOR by Katharine McGee
This is a reread for me, and thank goodness it holds up!  I desperately needed to a refresher before I continued with the trilogy, as I couldn’t even remember who died (it is revealed on page one that someone dies, but not who). This is a very soapy YA drama, but I love the futuristic world-building, which balances out my usual aversion to GOSSIP GIRL style plots.  I’ll have a review up next week, and if all goes according to plan, I’ll read the sequel in September!

Probable Next Read: JADE WAR by Fonda Lee and TO BE TAUGHT, IF FORTUNATE by Becky Chambers
Okay, this is the week!  I WILL start JADE WAR, a book I’ve been way too long in starting.  I’d also like to squeeze in my ARC novella, as it releases next week. It’s a holiday weekend here in the states, and I have some family visiting from out of town, so we’ll see what gets read in conjunction with GIDEON, but good things are ahead!

  1. Oh I’m curious to your review of Gideon the ninth!
    I’m currently reading to be taught, if fortunate, and I’m enjoying it so far! It is very scientific though, so personally I cannot read it very fast, but it is good!
