Was my library 3 weeks productive? Venture forth and check for color coded books.
The Chemist by Stephenie Meyer
I had enough to complain about to merit a full review. Skip it. 2/5
The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead
This is one of my Nerdy 30 books so the full review is here but TMALSS, it’s worth the hype and the Pulitzer. 5/5
Fresh Romance edited by Sarah Kuhn
A fun collection of mostly magical stories about love and its complexities. It was an excellent read and I look forward to more installments. 4.5/5
No Baggage by Clara Bensen
This has been on my TBR since last year. Fun and interesting, it was both a memoir of Bensen’s emotional happenings as minimalist travel. 4/5
On the Edge of Gone by Corinne Duyvis
An autistic own-voices YA sci-fi novel about the end of the world. Full review. 4/5
The Big Tiny by Dee Williams
My nonfiction pick, this book has been kicking around my TBR for too long. Full review but TMALSS, I liked it, didn’t love it. 3.5/5
Split the Party by Drew Hayes
The next installment in the Spells, Swords, and Stealth series. I really enjoyed this. The writing, plot, and character development has improved and there was plenty left for them to delve into in the next book. 5/5
In Order to Live by Yeonmi Park
May is Asian Pacific Heritage month so I’m going to read this much lauded memoir of a former North Korean citizen.
Springtime: A Ghost Story by Michelle de Krester
A short tale about a ghost in Australia
United States of Africa by Abdourahman A. Waberi
I have definitely never considered visiting Djibouti and the concept sounds fantastic.
Empire of Imagination by Michael Witwer
The life and times of Gary Gygax, creator of D&D.
Hikertrash: Life on the Pacific Crest Trail by Erin Miller
One of my hiking/adventure stories from my latest haul
I’d also like to make a bigger dent in Best Horror of the Year.
