August book report

I got a couple books in August:

Plus Weaver's Lament, which I didn't take a picture of. I'm excited to get into that massive gothic-romance-off between the Bronte sisters there, but I don't know if I'll have the time. And the Sunvault one! I'm all about solarpunk and other nice and optimistic genres* right now.

The only book I got totally read before the end of August was Reincarnation Blues:

Which I loved. It was so weird and emotional and the whole each-life-happens-in-whatever-place-in-time-it-needs-to gimmick was perfect--it allowed the story to be all over the place and interesting and wonderful. I think I didn't start anything immediately after it because it was sitting in my head, taking up space, letting me chew on it.

I don't have many lined up with deadlines in September, but I'm working on Infinite Stars, which is huge and which I got months ago, as well as two or three of those Tor.com mini-novels that I'm loving so dang much and keep requesting, because October is fuller and I want to make sure I keep up. I'm in the middle of slowly (like S L O W L Y) packing up all my stuff for a move in the next few months so I keep having to fill boxes with my personal reading, but I'm hoping to have a little time to get something non-deadlined read in the next few months.

What did you read in August? What books did you get?

- If you follow my Instagram or look at the feed on the top of this page, you'll have seen my novel-arrival pics already, but still.
* Like Hopepunk! I'll have to talk about that in a later post.
