Friday Reads 5/8/15

So, here we are at another Friday, and I pretty much haven't finished anything. This list may look familiar.


Dawn by Octavia Butler - I'm about halfway through this bizarre sci-fi story. Humans tried to destroy the Earth 250 years ago, prompting a group of aliens to step in and rescue as many as they could. Lilith has been sort of kept on ice off and on for the 250 years, so she hasn't aged much. The aliens keep doing little things to her to "improve" her in order to prepare her for life back on Earth.


Bookmarked by Wendy Fairey - I had better get busy on this one, because I got a copy of her mother's book College of One from the library today. This book is sort of about the author's relationship with the library F. Scott Fitzgerald built for her mother. College of One is her mother's version of that situation.

Sinful Deception

A Sinful Deception by Isabella Bradford - This is the trashy romance book the dancers gave me in my care package. I'm reading it pretty sporadically. The story hasn't really grabbed me, yet. It might not ever. The first sentence is "As soon as she walked in the room, he knew she was different." Blargh. The "she was different from other girls" trope. Oh well. We'll see if it picks up.

Clash of Kings

A Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin - I'm listening to this on CD in my car. It has 30 discs and I am on disc 10. This could take awhile.
