Here we go as usual, the weekly reading update!

Cover of Black Leopard Red Wolf by Marlon JamesWhat are you currently reading?

I’m still working my way through Black Leopard, Red Wolf, and I actually feel like I’ve got a bit more of a handle on it. I don’t like it very much, I’ll admit, but I’m finding my way with it and no longer so disinclined to finish.

I’m also about 70% of the way through rereading Mira Grant’s Deadline, which feels more middle-book-y than I remembered.

Cover of Stuck by Heidi J. LarsonWhat have you recently finished reading?

A bunch of things all in one go, but the most-most recent was Heidi J. Larson’s Stuck, about vaccine rumours and why they stick around. I can summarise the book for you in one sentence: “vaccine rumours are the fault of public health for not explaining things to people nicely enough, and the fix is for public health initiatives to be nicer.”

That’s about as good as it gets. Preeeetty disappointing.

Cover of Murderous Contagion: A human history of disease by Mary DobsonWhat will you be reading next?

Well, I have a few different books on my ‘next up’ shelf, including Mary Dobson’s Murderous Contagion, which should be fun for me. But I’m not sure; the shelf isn’t a hard commitment, more ‘hey, remember these books you were keen to read?’

What are you reading, or excited about reading?

  1. I bounced off Black Leopard almost immediately, and have never quite got up the gumption to have another go. I am curious to see what you make of it at the end!

    I’ll be finishing Phoenix Extravagant today, Yoon Ha Lee’s new fantasy – it’s unexpectedly wholesome for a novel about rebelling against a repressive occupying force; 2020 seems to be the year I accidentally find myself reading melodrama (and – surprisingly – enjoy it).

    • I… don’t like it much, but I’ve found my way into it. If I don’t bounce off this weird bit I’m struggling with right now!

      Aaargh I need to read that!
