Happy Monday, Boozie Book Nerds!
This is your weekly reminder that black lives matter. Also, #StopAAPIHate
Hey all!! It was a crazy long week but I got to go the the office a few times which mean I got some commute reading done!!
What Sam Finished:
- Master Artificer by Justin T. Call: This book was too long. Like way too long. It took me literally a month to read, and even in a slump that’s too long.
What Sam is Currently Reading:
- The Last Graduate by Naomi Novak: This is the second book in this series. I’m listening on audio. I still think the main character is annoying butI’m enjoying it for sure
- Nolyn by Michael J. Sullivan: this is the first book in a new series by one of my fave authors. Follows the son of Nyphron from the previous series. Seriously, I would read this man’s grocery list, I’m tellin’ ya.
What Ginny Finished:
- Lycanthropy and Other Chronic Illnesses by Kristen O’Neal: This book was delightful. A pre-med student gets Lyme disease and ends up helping an internet friend deal with her Lycanthropy. This book had a delightful cast (including a bunch of side characters), takes chronic illnesses seriously while showing that there’s still a future, and also doesn’t take itself too seriously. I’d be interested to see if there’s a potential for this to be a series, with the possibility of other mythical creatures.
What Ginny is Currently Reading:
- The Keeper of Night by Kylie Lee Baker: Honestly, i haven’t read any more of this this week. It’s been busy and I might be in a little bit of a slump.
- Everybody Else is Perfect by Gabrielle Korn: I really liked the title of this book so I picked it up. It’s been an interesting read, partially because of the way that the magazine has changed drastically, and the way society has changed on a wide variety of topics i.e. sexuality.
What Melinda Is Reading Now
- The Silence of the Girls by Pat Barker – This is the story of the Trojan War as told by Briseis, former Trojan Queen and current captive of Achilles. She shares her perspective going from royal to slave and the stories of thousands of enslaved women. Reading this one on audio.
What Minda Finished
- The Lucky Escape by Laura Jane Williams – After Annie is left at the altar on her wedding day, she’s a mess trying to figure out where her perfectly planned life went wrong. She soon runs into an old friend from camp who reminds her who she used to be and she kind of likes that feeling. Plus, now he’s about to join her on the honeymoon she had planned. What could go wrong? Or right? Thank you Avon and NetGalley for an ARC! Stay tuned for review.
Until next time, we remain forever drunkenly yours,
— Sam, Ginny, and Minda
