2019 Reads

I love books, but I’m a notoriously slow reader. If you give me eight solid hours of reading time, I’ll still only get to the first 150 pages, tops. This is because I read for fun and to learn craft. The latter means that I spend a lot of time writing notes and/or color-coding sticky tabs. The former means that I’ll stop reading a book for a moment to have a head argument with a character (why did you do the thing you did? When did that seem like a good idea? Why are you like this?)

At any rate, I’m trying to read faster this year so I can read more books. Below is a list of what I’ve read so far for 2019. Below that is a list of what’s on my shelf (or ordered) to be read.

What I’ve read so far:

  • Children of Blood and Bones by Tomi Adeyemi
  • Station Eleven by Emily St John Mandel
  • Saints and Misfits by S. K. Ali
  • Mirage by Somaiya Daud

What’s in the queue: 

  • Vampires in the Lemon Grove by Karen Russell
  • The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton
  • Two Tongues by Lana Issam Ghannam
