Friday Reads 8/18/17

Well hello, Friday. Took your sweet time, didn't you? Actually, my work week was all of two days long, but dang! they were long days.

Book club is tonight, which I am looking forward to. This weekend I have to focus pretty hard on school work. This quarter is brutal. But I'm also getting my hair done, and dance and bells start this weekend, so I'm not all work and no play.

When I get to read this weekend, here's what I've got to choose from:

Steep and Thorny Way

The Steep and Thorny Way by Cat Winters - This is a YA, genderbent, retelling of Hamlet. Even though I know what's going to happen it's interesting. It's set in 1923 in rural Oregon. Hamlet is a teenage girl who is confronting the idea that her new step-father might have killed her father. Her parents were in an interracial marriage, and the local Klan members didn't like it. The boy who was convicted of his death only served 17 months in prison, and now he's back to tell Hallie about her real situation.

Lumberjanes Vol. 6

Lumberjanes Vol. 6 by Noelle Stephenson - Here is the latest volume in this graphic novel series about the girls camp where the supernatural has a habit of showing up. Shouldn't take too long to get through. I love these things.

So that's about it for me this weekend. What are you planning to read this week?
