Friday Reads

It's Friday. yay. This has been a rough week. I wish I got a whole weekend, but I have to make up some hours. I will get a solid 30 hours or so to rest and do chores.

I have finished a total of 1 book this month. Ugh! Anyway, I haven't read much this week. Lack of time and energy most contributed to this. I have been too busy at work to read. So this week's reading plans will look a LOT like last week's plans.


Loveless by Alice Oseman - Still plugging away at this one. It isn't terrible, I'm just reading slowly. I'm almost 30% through it.

The Best American Science Fiction and Fantasy 2021 - I have read 4 or 5 of these collection and have enjoyed them. I need to be keeping track of my rating of each story, so I can aggregate them for my review.

Wotakoi 2

Wotakoi: Love Is Hard for Otaku, Vol. 2 by Fujita - This would literally take me 90 minutes to read, if I would just sit down and do it. I haven't been able to bring myself to open it. If I would, I could have another book finished for the month.

Lazy Genius

The Lazy Genius Way: Embrace What Matters, Ditch What Doesn't, and Get Stuff Done by Kendra Adachi - I heard this author talk on a podcast I listen to and I liked what I heard. It reminds me a lot of my ditching of sorting laundry just to get the laundry done: fewer loads, saves water, saves time, gray socks (which I don't care about).

Silver Night

Song of Silver, Flame Like Night  by Amelie Wen Zhao - I really need to get busy on this one if I have any hope of finishing it before the release date. It's long, but not Priory  long. Good luck to me.

Oof. That looks like a lot. But I won't try to finish the Sci-Fi/Fantasy book this week; or the long fantasy novel. Wotakoi I can do and hopefully Loveless. Lazy Genius is less than 250 pages. Ok. I've talked myself off the ledge.

This might be a rather ambitious list, but I keep hoping my reading mojo will come back.
