Friday Reads 5/5/2023

I am so thankful I looked at a calendar today. My schedule is so wonky this week, I don't have any idea what day it is. This trend is likely to continue for the next week based on how my schedule is going to continue to be stuffed up.

So with this wonky schedule, I haven't had a ton of reading time. There won't be a lot of surprises on this post.


The Nineties by Chuck Klosterman - The sheer length of these chapters means it's not the book I pick up after work when I just need to read a few pages so I can mark it on my list as a day I have read something. This is a book you sit down with for an hour or so with pen in hand to make notes. It doesn't look like I will have an hour or so until next Thursday. But it's still on my stack. I haven't given up.


Mere Mortals by Erin Jade Lange - This is the one I pick up in the evening and read a chapter while my kids are talking around me just so I can read 6-10 pages and call it a reading day. It's fun. These vampire teens get made mortal as punishment and have to figure out how to survive high school. The main character is a queen bee type who falls in with the popular crowd easily, but has to deal with the fact that the zeitgeist of the rural town is very different from the worldly view she had as a vampire.

Milk and Honey

Shades of Milk and Honey by Mary Robinette Kowal - After Mere Mortals, I will probably pick up this little regency fantasy. It's not very long and is on my 50 by 50 list. Yay.

I don't think I will finish The Nineties, this week, but I have a large book lined up, ready to go when I do finish it, so I think that's all for now.
