Friday Reads 4/9/21

Oh Lort. It'sFriday. I have a busy weekend ahead so I don't know how much reading I'll get done. I don't get a lot done on weekdays. If I'm smart, I'll keep this list pretty short, but we all know I'm not smart like that.

Angel of Greenwood by Randi Pink - I'm reading this one now. I'm almost halfway through it. A lot of people said it's slow, but I don't really think so. I think they just weren't interested in reading about the differences between Booker T. Washington and W.E.B. DuBois. The two main characters argue about this a lot.

Sanditon by Jane Austen and Kate Riordan - I listened to this on my drive home from New Mexico this week. I'm 75% through it, but now that I'm driving my car, the Bluetooth broke so I can't listen in the car. I don't listen anywhere else, so I'm waiting until I get my Bluetooth fixed so I can listen. Austen only wrote the first 60 pages of this before she died. Riordan has continued it. It's very risque, and I'm not sure I like it, but I am invested in the plot now.

Wotakoi: Love Is Hard for Otaku by Fujita - I watched a video about romance manga and this looked interesting. Otaku is the Japanese name for nerds. Particularly gamer nerds. This is about an office romance between two closet otaku. This probably won't take longer than an hour or two to read.

The Castle School (for Troubled Girls) by Alyssa Sheinmel - This is an award nomination book. I might as well get some of that reading in, if I can.

Hell In the Heartland: Murder, Meth, and the Case of Two Missing Girls by Jax Miller - I've been hanging on to this one for awhile. I should just get busy and read it. It's on the April TBR for an intimidating book.

I think that's enough for now. We'll see how it goes.
