Finally, it’s the weekend! With some much appreciated down time in the near future, my plans of grandeur include plenty of reading and relaxing! I’ve recently received some bookmail, and I plan on getting into the new books this weekend. Check out the information below to see what’s on the docket.
Right now I am listening to an audiobook of “A Court of Wings and Ruin” by Sarah J. Maas. The book is number three in the “A Court of Thorns and Roses” series. I am about 30% into the book and it feels like a seamless continuation of book two. The series flows as one epic saga that just happens to come in the form of three installments. I have been completely lost in Maas’ storytelling and simple prose. The YA Fantasy genre was already one of my favorites, but this series is truly something special!
I also have started the physical book, “All Boys Aren’t Blue.” I have only read the introduction and the first few chapters, but it has already hooked me. The memoir/manifesto is written by a black gay man who details his life experience from childhood to adulthood. I feel drawn to the author’s writing. It is direct, clear and beautiful in its simplicity which shakes the traditional societal limitations and opts for a blunt narrative which I appreciate already.
I can’t wait to make some progress on these books, so it’s time to disconnect and get started.
