Just finished Mythos ( Greek Myths Retold ) by Stephen Fry. It was a great introduction to Greek Myths, though I don't know how actually solid it was because I never took Classics in HS.

King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo. I read it a month ago, but it was EXTREMELY good. If you like Nikolai & Zoya in the previous series of Shadow and Bone, you should definitely check it out.

Tomorrow, I'll be reading Wicked Saints by Emily A. Duncan.

I just finished Out of Abaton, which is a retelling of Pinocchio. I actually didn't know what to expect, but I really enjoyed it!

And right now, I'm reading Flashback from the Keeper of the Lost Cities series!

Fierce Femmes and Notorious Liars: A Dangerous Trans Girl's Confabulous Memoir by Kai Cheng Thom

Over half-way in. Pretty quick read. So far, it's a beautiful, spindly guessing game, deciphering the half-truths and magic.

This sounds delectable. Where is our KHI Queer Bookclub.

I have a stack of books that manages to measure up to my TV (which is admittedly smol-ish) next to my bed and I weep at realizing I need to be an adult and actually schedule time to dig through it. Scheduling reading time. What has this world come to. :'(
But I'm about 30 pages into Fire on the Mountain by Terry Bisson (on recommendation from my mom) and I'm enjoying the alt-history-as-revelatory-for-real-world history approach: I need to know more about this timeline's version of Harriet Tubman, the militant revolutionary. Also letting myself drift along through I Am a Cat by Soseki Natsume, which I picked up at Kinokuniya on a whim along with Once and Forever: The Tales of Kenji Miyazawa (translation by John Bester) and My Solo Exchange Diary 2 by Nagata Kabi (speaking of queer and book clubs...). And then I did a, haha, sizable Indiebound order so that's when I realized I have a duty to all the trees who have died for my sins. </3
