April Books

me: I only journal regularly if I can type so I should make my own journal site then I will post so much

me to me: lol bitch you never update any journal

I constantly buy books I never read and have no room for so I’m not gonna even address those anymore


    Arrival by Ted Chiang, also known as the origin story (literally because it’s a short story compilation hahshahahah) for the movie of the same name
    Pulp by Robin Talley, which I’m guessing I wasn’t impressed by because I’ve already forgotten it entirely
  • (Update because I looked at it and lol I read this for book club so I assume I actually read it semi critically and with attention but uh whoops sorry book you just didn’t leave an impact)
    • Sisterhood of the Squared Circle by Pat Lapgrade, I think there was also a coauthor on this but I’m just copying this shit from my record man I don’t know. This feels like a reference book which would be fine except I borrowed it from the library, so I can’t really stick it on my bookshelf for the next time someone cuts my internet then asks me Charlotte Flair’s debut season win record
      I’m Fine and Neither Are You by Camille Pagán, which I remember as a very cute and easily digested rom com typa deal with transparent plot drama that was still compelling enough that I stayed interested, so, appreciate it
      The Spy Who Couldn’t Spell by Yudhijit Bhattacharjee which, whew, I bought a couple of copies for friends because I borrowed this one for Kindle and it was excellent. Granted, most of my friends are security nerds who have an interest in the field.
      Dr. Mutter’s Marvels by Cristin O’Keefe Aptowicz; I have been wanting to see the museum for a while now but probably won’t be able to do it any time soon, so happening across this at the library was pretty cool

    Amazingly, I don’t think I DNFed anything this month. I’ve been working on (not purposefully) increasing my DNF count because I tend to stick it out too long with books that I just don’t?? Enjoy??
