Real talk: my book indecision plague has reached new heights. The stack of books at my fingertips is alarming and I'm about to make my partner choose something from it at random out of panicked desperation.

CHALLENGE: 100 Unique Women Writers

Week 6: still pushing away at Downbelow Station. I'm on page 223 and my plan to take it slowly with two or three chapters a day has taken the pressure off and let me spend time with the details. Things are starting to pick up, even if the politics are a bit confusing. And I kinda slash Josh and Damon...predictably.

My book last week was Mars Evacuees by Sophia McDougall, and it was great! It's reviewed below.

For Week 7, my next title selected from The Jar and presented by Doreen, is Radiant by Karina Sumner-Smith!

My free choices right now: Lightless by C.A. Higgins, A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab (everyone wants me to read this, like, everyone), and City of Pearl by Karen Traviss. I have Cold Iron by Stina Leicht but I should probably wait on that one since it's massive, and I want to read The Labyrinth of Flame by Courtney Schafer first epic fantasy-wise. JUST MAKE A CHOICE, SELF. Be a reader! Read something. Read anyone that's new to you.

Reading for last week! )

What's with your subtitle?

It's a riff off an extremely obscure meme only Tom Hardy and Myspace fans will appreciate.
