I read a good YA, Mostly Straight, this week and a strangely unsettling NYT bestseller. Still not sure why the bestseller so unsettled me. That’s the only word I can think of to describe the feeling of “something’s off here.” Not giving the title of the book because it may just be my reading biases since the book was well-written. I went back and reread Heyer’s False Colours as brain bleach, and ended up skimming large chunks of it, possibly because I’ve read it at least half a dozen times already. I think once you get past six readings on a book, you’re basically doing the good parts version anyway.
So what did you read this week?
(And in an unrelated note, big thank you to everybody who’s giving me feedback on Act One. Never apologize for beta reading, I need honest criticism and you’re all giving it to me. Absolutely nothing to apologize for because I’m grateful for all of it.)
