It’s that time again! Check out Taking On A World Of Words to chat with everyone else who has posted what they’re reading right now!
Non-fiction: No progress since last week!
Fiction: I’m 60% of the way through Grave Importance (Vivian Shaw), and honestly, I’m mad every time I have to put it down and double mad I didn’t get to read it at all today. Maybe a liiiittle before bed? Anyway, this series is solid comfort for me: despite everything bad that goes on, Greta does her best to be a doctor, to take care of people whether she likes them or not, whether they’re even good people or not. And she has such a good found family around her, though I’m afraid Ruthven is my favourite forever and ever. And I love the little details like the baby screaming skulls and 3D printed replacement bones for mummies.
I’m also 30% of the way through Network Effect (Martha Wells). Obviously I couldn’t just say no to my wife reading it too, so I’m waiting for her to catch up. All I have to say so far is oh nooooo.
Er. I’m not sure. It was during the readathon on the weekend, probably, so… A Treacherous Curse (Deanna Raybourn)? Always solid fun, though I can’t quite view them as proper historical fiction with everything Veronica gets up to (without even the good taste to have more money than God in order to excuse her peccadilloes).
Who knooooows? I probably want to finish up Goldilocks (Laura Lam) and The Ten Thousand Doors of January (Alix E. Harrow). I’m annoyed I stopped reading The Ten Thousand Doors of January, because I was inhaling it, and it’s not even that I’m not in the mood — I just got distracted.
