Pretty simple - see title.

I'm currently listening (via audiobook) The Hollow of Fear by Sherry Thomas. It's the third book in a series about a female Sherlock Holmes. It's pretty interesting, and I enjoy the twists on classic Sherlock Holmes tales.

I've also just started reading The Heart's Invisible Furies by John Boyne. It's a pretty solid read so far - it's about a boy (so far) who is given up for adoption. It starts off with his mother being banished from her home town and moving to Dublin. She was branded a whore in front of the church's congregation due to being pregnant out of wedlock. Pretty intriguing so far!

What about you? What's the last thing you read? What are you currently reading?

Currently reading Long Way Down by Jason Reynolds. Not that far into it, but it's good so far. Also reading Ghost by the same author. I'm quite far in this, and it makes me excited to get to the second book!

always wondered why there wasn't a thread like this, am reading:

The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle - Haruki Murakami
love Murakami way too much. shoutout to Aslan for recommending this author

Abstract Algebra - Dummit and Foote
my algebra textbook this year! reading through the sections which weren't covered in class

Introduction to Commutative Algebra - Atiyah and MacDonald
cause Dummit & Foote is painfully dry and it's nice to have another reference for commutative algebra

I don't really read all that much tbh. It's harder on my poor reading comprehension, and I often have to do it when I'm really in the mood.

With that said, I've been trying to read Wings of Fire: The Lost Heir by Tui T. Sutherland. ^^; It has to do with dragons... and it's absolutely AMAZING because they are one of my most favorite creatures.

We're supposed to go to the library today, so I'm hoping to find some good books there.

Used to read a lot more when I was younger, haven't done much in the past several years. But the other day I finished reading Dan Brown's Origin.

idk when I'll read something again though, I don't have anything in mind

just wanted to say i finished the book in my first post:
I've also just started reading The Heart's Invisible Furies by John Boyne. It's a pretty solid read so far - it's about a boy (so far) who is given up for adoption. It starts off with his mother being banished from her home town and moving to Dublin. She was branded a whore in front of the church's congregation due to being pregnant out of wedlock. Pretty intriguing so far!
and i have to say that it was SO good. i cried a lot in the last 100ish pages or so. I'm now about to start reading Big Little Lies in preparation of the new season on HBO.

I finally started Derek Landy's Midnight (Skulduggery Pleasant series) in preparation for Bedlam coming out later this year. Honestly, some of this stuff is a bit too creepy for comfort, but I love the dynamic between Skulduggery and Valkyrie and how they've become close over the course of the last..11 books. The series definitely could've ended on book 9, but I'm glad the author decided to take it into this direction to flesh out Valkryie a bit more, as she felt too much like a static punk teen was way more cocky than a detective should be 😂

I finished Wind-Up Bird Chronicle today, what a bizarre and fun read. there are still a ton of Murakami books I want to go through but I'm just a bit tired of his typical tropes/themes so I'm gonna read some other stuff atm. but yeh Wind-Up Bird nets two bingos among the Murakami tropes!




haven't decided what to read next, possible choices I'm considering are... Either/Or (Kierkegaard), Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao (Diaz), Faust (Goethe) and Gravity's Rainbow (Pynchon). but I'm at a lost for what to start
