Recent Updates and Currently Reading | March 19

Hi, reader friends! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend. I had a long rainy weekend, and I managed to get in plenty of reading so I'm grateful for that.

I also managed to play a lot of Stardew Valley. This game is deceptively huge.

Finished Reading

The Adventures of Amina al-Sirafi by Shannon Chakraborty The Helm of Midnight by Marina J. Lostetter

The Adventures of Amina al-Sirafi by Shannon Chakraborty ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - I cannot stress enough how much I love this book. I'll have a review out tomorrow, but honestly this book was perfect.

The Helm of Midnight by Marina J. Lostetter ⭐⭐⭐★★ - I'll have a review out soon for this one as well. I enjoyed it, but it meandered a bit for me.

Currently Reading

Book Lovers by Emily Henry The Unknown. Weird Writings, 1900-1937 by Algernon Blackwood

Book Lovers by Emily Henry - I started reading Book Lovers this weekend, and I only have 40 pages left. I'm anxious to get back to it as soon as I'm done posting!

The Unknown. Weird Writings, 1900-1937 by Algernon Blackwood - I'm still loving this. It was released this past week so I need to finish it to get a review up, but I'm trying not to rush through it.

Added to the TBR

Piñata by Leopoldo Gout Light from Uncommon Stars by Ryka Aoki

Piñata by Leopoldo Gout - Piñata was also released this past week. Thank you to Tor for offering to send me a copy. Coincidentally, I have been in the mood for ancient evil lately so I'm excited for this to fit the bill!

Light from Uncommon Stars by Ryka Aoki - There is a #TransRightsReadathon happening this coming week. I may not have time in my reading schedule to read this immediately, but I did go to the bookstore and pick up a book (this one!) in support. Light from Uncommon Stars is a cozy scifi, and I'm very much looking forward to reading it.

  1. Book Lovers is very popular but I found the book just so-so. Hope you enjoy it.

  2. I am excited to see you are anxious to finish Book Lovers. I like Henry's books (YA and adult). Yeah for a five-star book. I recognized the last name of the author, and then realized that's who wrote City of Brass.

  3. I am currently listening to The Adventures of Amina Al Sifari!!!! And I love it so far.

  4. I'm liking cozy SF lately... will have to check out Light from Uncommon Stars.

  5. I just read about Adventures of Amina last week for the first time and it sounds so interesting - and your enthusiasm is encouraging. I look forward to reading it.
    Have a terrific week.

  7. Nice looking assortment of books. I enjoyed Book Lovers too. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  8. I requested a copy of The Adventures of Amina al-Sirafi from my library when I first saw a bit about it here. It was not available and last week I requested a second copy. Now both copies are here! Glad to see how much you liked it.

    I liked Book Lovers a lot. I'm in the mood for something light. I hope The Adventures of Amina al-Sirafi fits that mood.

  9. Book Lovers looks like a fun read. Happy Monday 😊

  10. Hope you enjoy you new books.
    Have a great week.

  11. I don't even dare get into gaming because I'd spend so much time at ti. Speaks well for Book lovers, bet you've finished it by now.
