I always have a few books in rotation.

I am listening to Monsters We Have Made by Lindsay Starck. It's sort of spooky and pretty engaging.

On my Kindle app I am reading A Tempest of Tea (Blood and Tea, #1) by Hafsah Faizal. I'm struggling to finish this one, but I like it overall--it reminds me of a DnD party.


Still working on these ones, but the hold I had on Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas became available so I'm now also working on that

Just finished "Strong Female Character" by Fern Brady. Definitely recommend it, especially for autistic women. I had thought it was fiction when it was recommended to me, but it's an autobiography, and well-written.

These reviews match my own:

"The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire" by Edward Gibbon. I'm an armchair Medieval historian so this is right up my alley. Plus, Isaac Asimov named it as one of his inspirations for his book "Foundation". I love the "Foundation" series so I had to check it out.

I’m reading Antarctica by Claire Keegan. It’s a collection of well written short stories, they are quite dark.

9 From The Nine Worlds By Rick Riordan

Really liked the short story format with every story being in a different Norse setting and with a different character. It's not that I'm completely against juvenile humor, but here it wasn't really landing. The stories were mostly clever though and had good variety. My favorite was probably "This Is Why I Hate Clothes Shopping" about the dead man's pants, because it was so random and creative. The book did a good job of incorporating the original characters with the chars from Norse mythology.

Avatar the Last Airbender - The Shadow of Kyoshi by F.C. Yee and Michael Dante DiMartino

I would highly recommend the first Kyoshi book (The Rise of Kyoshi) if you are an ATLA fan.
