    I was entertained, definitely a page turner but I’m a much bigger fan of his short stories ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Starting the newly released Sylvia Plath novella Mary Ventura and the Ninth Kingdom next. I also picked up Love in the Time of Cholera and Heart of Darkness at a street festival today. Never read either of them before.

    Science is whatever we want it to be Prestigious

    The next two blow it out of the water.

    I’m not sure if my imagination has ever been fucked with so hard.

    I didn’t like the three body problem enough to want to read the next two but everyone keeps talking about them

    Finished the Plath novella. Super short but cool allegory.

    My next book will be The Folded Leaf by William Maxwell. Never heard of this author but first few pages in and im digging the voice a lot which is the most important element for me

    I finised up The Girl on The Train. It was good, alittle slow at times. I wouldnt say it was great by any means,but it was definitely a decent read.

    When it comes to fantasy books, I lately have been trying to prioritise books written by up-and-coming women, which has led me to some true gems. All of them are very different, with very different settings and magic systems, but all of them are so fresh and well written.

    1. The Swords and Fire series by Melissa Caruso. The third and final instalment just came out. I'm waiting for the Audiobook though.

    The Tethered Mage (Swords and Fire, #1) by Melissa Caruso

    2. Empire of Sand by Tasha Suri. The next instalment in the series is coming out later this year.

    Empire of Sand (The Books of Ambha, #1) by Tasha Suri

    3.Torn by Rowenna Miller. I have recommend this one before. The second instalment in the series is almost out too.

    Torn (The Unraveled Kingdom, #1) by Rowenna Miller

    More to come at some point. I'm about to start The City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty.
