Friday Reads 4/10/2020

How the hell is it almost the middle of April? It freaking just started! Weird!

Anyway, I'm reading some books. Because of course I am.

The Vanishing Deep by Astrid Scholte - I'm only 50 pages in, so I don't have much opinion, yet, but so far it's pretty good. Our main character, Tempest (Tempe for short), lives in a post-apocalyptic, post tidal wave world mostly made of water. She dives to underground lost cities to find things to sell. She's saving up to re-animate her sister to find out if she killed their parents.

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas - I have put off reading this because I thought it would be super cliche. It's not. I'm almost half way through it and I really enjoy it. Celaena Sardothien is known as Adarlan's Assassin for her high body count, but she's spent the last year in salt mines, slaving away as a prisoner of the crown. But the king is looking for a Champion (read: mercenary), and is hosting a contest to find the one. The Crown Prince boosts Celaena from jail to participate.

A Charmed Life: The Spirituality of Pottwerworld by Francis Bridger - Bridger is a Church of England pastor. This was written in the middle of the series, so it doesn't take the whole series into account, particularly the part where Harry comes back to life. Anyway, he is a fan and this is a dissertation on why Harry Potter is safe for the world's Christian children.

After that, I don't know. I'm leaving my options open. Sort of. I haven't forgotten about my reading challenges.
