What I've been reading (outside of fanfiction, anyway)


Bombshells was pretty good

I also finished  N. K. Jemisin' The Fifth Season (and now I want the sequel). Jemisin does some really interesting stuff with POV (which is difficult to discuss without spoiling certain things)


Most of the stuff I'm reading at the moment is nonfiction (for grad school). I'm enjoying it overall, even if there are some weird parts (paralleling Borges' deteriorating vision/ blindness  with Lavinia's fate in Titus Andronicus ...I mean REALLY?)


I've also been trying to read le Carre's Single & Single, but the... casual homophobia in it is aggravating  (I mean, I can deal with it in stuff of his that was published in the 70s, but when it's in stuff published in 1999... )
