A late weekly update ^_^

In theory these will go up on Wednesday’s… but I spent most of Tuesday and Wednesday reading I Wish You All the Best by Mason Deaver. I’m definitely not sorry. 😁 Additionally, I’m not feeling phenomenal, so my read books will be less mini reviews and more of a list. I do have more I want to say about these books, I’m just not feeling up to saying it right now.

The template I’m using for these updates is WWW Wednesday, hosted by Taking on a World of Words and recommended to me by Destiny at Howling Libraries.

What am I currently reading?

I’m sort of between books. I’ve technically started a few books but I haven’t 100% committed to them so I don’t count them as currently reading. I usually listen to an audiobook at work, but lately I’ve been binging the Books in the Freezer podcast instead. It’s putting me in a weird fluffy horror mood, and I’m not sure that even exists.

What have I finished reading since my last update?

An Absolutely Remarkable Thing by Hank Green: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4 stars. REP: black love interest, and I feel like the MC might be on the autism spectrum, but it is never stated or even really implied. I just related to her in a similar way to how I’ve related to other autistic characters. CW: a couple of scenes of body horror (let me know if you want more details, but I don’t want to go further here to 100% avoid spoilers)

Rolling in the Deep by Mira Grant: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4 stars. REP: characters are deaf, queer, people of color. CW: creature-feature levels of violence and gore.

Into the Drowning Deep by Mira Grant: ⭐️⭐️⭐️ 3.5 stars. As a marine biologist and a creature feature enthusiast I’ve got some big feelings about this. I’ll hopefully write up a full review of these later. REP: characters are queer, deaf, Chinese-Australian, French Canadian, autistic, anxious, chronic pain spoonies, and probably other things I’m forgetting. CW: same as above, also sexism in STEM, glorification of game hunting.

I Wish You All the Best by Mason Deaver: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 stars. I’m not sure what I’m going to do with the rest of 2019 now that I’ve read the best book. REP: MC is nonbinary and has anxiety and depression, LI is queer and black. CW: panic attacks, misgendering (both intentional and unintentional), dysphoria, trans and queer hatred and ignorance

What do I plan to read between now and my next update?

I’m not exactly sure. Hopefully something fluffy for feminist lit February. 😊


There you have it, the rest of my January 2019 reads. Have you read any of these? Any thoughts on what I should read soon? Let me know in the comments!
