I’m not generally a fan of heist novels, and like The Lies of Locke Lamoranone of the characters are overly likable.  I definitely have sympathy for them and their situation, but the thing that’s keeping me interested is less the job and more everyone’s backstory.  I’m not sure how long I’m going to keep reading this (it’s due back on the 20th unless I renew), but even if I DNF, I will definitely read more from this author.

Title: The Vela
Series Title: The Vela

Now I understand why there are four authors.  The novel is split into four “episodes,” and I reached the second by Becky Chambers.

I am going to read Chapter 4 before moving onto something else.  It looks like I’m rereading The Mabinogion Tetralogywhich my past, silly ass took no notes on *smacks forehead*

Just.  Fucking.  READ.  It.  You.  Ridiculous.  Ninny.

I could literally finish this in one setting and have my first finish of the year, but NOPE I keep not doing it.

I’m at the last part of the book, and I think I only have like 30 pages left so I should be done by next update.  I’m definitely reading the rest of the books in the series as soon as I can get my grubby, little hands on them.

Title: A Sky Beyond the Storm

There’s going to be a week where I just finish all the books and I’ll have a ton to update lol.


I made my Goodreads challenge 30 books this year since that’s how many I managed to read last year when I set it to 25.  

I used the Amazon gift card I got for Christmas to buy Ecofeminism.  That was on my research wish list for a while, and I received the Final Fantasy VII Remake: Material Ultimania from an August preorder.  it’s always weird figuring out those dates and details and deciding when to put the “purchase” date since it’s farther for those reasons.

I hope you’re all staying as safe as you can.  Shit is real out there.
