I’m coming up on hour 13 of the 24 in 48 readathon and wanted to get one last update up before I sign off for the night. It has been an eventful 4ish hours since my last update which is exciting!
In the last few hours, I finished Helen Oyeyemi’s What is Not Yours is Not Yours and boy was it great. The stories were the perfect mix of quirky, eclectic, odd, charming, and disturbing. There were a couple stories I didn’t care for but overall this was an absolutely fantastic short story collection. After What is Not Yours is Not Yours, I picked up The Shotgun Arcana by R.S. Belcher and it has met my expectations so far. I love the world Belcher creates in Golgotha and the cast of characters is just hilarious, creepy, and wonderful. I’m 90 pages in and hope to finish it first thing in the morning.
In audiobook news, I’m one hour away from finishing up Troublemaker by Leah Remini. It’s been a great audio pick, engaging and interesting without being too heavy. Having the author read their own book can be risky but so far Remini has done a pretty good job – I don’t hate her voice and she adds some great inflection. I think I’ll finish listening to Troublemaker tonight as a wind-down from the day and potentially start the audiobook of Mindy Kaling’s Why Not Me?
And with that, I am signing off the interwebs for the night. I’ll be back in 8ish hours to get back to reading and Litsy-ing and the like. Until then, happy reading!
