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.

In a world of my own...
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

I’ve been trying to make my way through Jason Schrier’s Blood, Sweat and Pixels, but I’ll be honest, I really only wanted to read the chapter on Stardew Valley’s development so it’s been tough going back since that one lol.

Most recently I got the new Twilight book, hoping it’d be nostalgic and fun, but right now it’s just annoying me a little.

Currently am reading all literature about Kingdom Hearts from the A to the Z. I do not have any time for my homework, that's why I am forced to use my favorite writing service (https://ewriters.pro/) for it :D

I recently finished "To Sleep in a Sea of Stars" by Christopher Paolini. While it has a lot of genre trappings and cliches, it also has a well crafted universe, relatable characters, and an interesting ending.

It's a sci-fi space opera taking place in a future where faster than light travel (known as FTL) is discovered and humanity has colonized many planets. Kira Navárez, a Xenobiologist, is studying a potential new planet to move to when she discovers an alien relic that changes her life forever. This sets in motion an odyssey with action-packed space battles, a quest to prevent a war from escalating, and eldritch imagery.

I recommend it to sci-fi fans, especially those a bit tired of Star Wars' most recent movies. It is an adult novel though, so bear that in mind if you're expecting the same as what he wrote in the Inheritance Cycle (Eragon, Eldest, etc.). Much more mature themes are present.
