What are you currently reading?

Rabbit & Robot by Andrew Smith
YA Science Fiction, 448 pages
September 25, 2018 from Simon & Schuster

My progress: 75/448

When I heard this was coming out in September, it instantly became my most anticipated book of the year because of how much I love Winger and how much I appreciate Andrew Smith’s weird work in general. I’m about 75 pages into this one and it definitely has his signature craziness, although I’m not sure if it’s sitting right with me this time. Something about this book almost feels too random, and the content is very heavy (and weird) and it’s not very funny which I feel is something Andrew Smith can be very good at. I might need a break from this one but I want to read at least 150 pages before I decide one way or another whether this is for me.

What did you recently finish reading?

My Year of Rest and Relaxation by Ottessa Moshfegh
Literary Fiction, 290 pages
Published July 10, 2018 by Penguin

My rating: ★★★★★

This one was not on my TBR but after Ottessa came to our store and read an excerpt it had been on my mind, and everyone at work was reading it… so I caved and I finished it in one weekend. The narrator’s voice is so readable. Even though she’s pretty horrible, she’s also darkly, shockingly humorous. There were also a few passages that were particularly striking and thought provoking. I really, really liked it.

What do you think you’ll read next?

Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare
YA Urban Fantasy, 698 pages
Published March 8, 2016 by Simon & Schuster

Well, technically I guess I’ve already started this one. But I’m not sure if I’m going to continue with Rabbit & Robot first, or read this one instead. Both are on my TBR after all, and my date with Cassie Clare is long overdue! I know these characters were introduced in the last TMI book, but I don’t remember them and I didn’t like City of Heavenly Fire very much… so fingers crossed for this one!

I would love to hear what you thought of these books and what you’re currently reading!
