Updates from the Lair is my weekly wrap-up post that includes what happened in my real life, what I’ve been reading, my posts from the week, and what I’m thinking about reading next week (and would love your advice on!).
Hello loves! I’m almost done with my crazy seven weeks of teaching. The final exam is this week and then I’m dooooooonnnnnne! It’s been a fun experience and a good learning opportunity, but I definitely need a break. We’re going up north for the 4th and I’m excited for the chance to read during the drive and relax by a lake.
I’m reading a lot of books at once by accident, but my main focus is Chosen! It’s a small pub sci-fi coming out later next month and I’m really enjoying it so far :D. It also is by and stars a black woman, so if you keep up with diverse genre fiction, don’t miss this one.
I’m also reading Nevernight and enjoying it so far. I’ve honestly been skimming a lot of the footnotes since they are just info about the world that isn’t all that important to the action and seems to just bog things down. It’s pretty dark, but has a HP vibe with the magic school, just for assassins instead ;-).
My current audiobook is The Waking Fire and I LOVE it! It’s a lot like Novik’s dragon world in that there is industrial-age technology alongside dragons, though these dragons aren’t nice and don’t seem to like books, ha. The narration is freaking amazing and I’m loving every moment I’m in the car, I even don’t mind traffic!
