The first week of my new job is at a close and, y’all, my new library is completely adorable and the school is great and I really like it! I’m completely exhausted and there’s a lot of work to do in the next few months (inventory!), but I’m super excited to be starting this new chapter in my life.
My commute is about half the length it was for my previous job. YAY! But I now I don’t have a single long stretch of time on one bus, which means it’s tricky picking up a paper book/my Kindle. I might miss my stop!
However! This means I can finally take advantage of all those audiobooks I’ve been stockpiling over the past year.
For my first audiobook, I picked Sheepfarmer’s Daughter by Elizabeth Moon, an adventure/fantasy novel with a female soldier. I’m very much enjoying it, though it took me a while to get used to the narrator’s reading style. She pauses in weird places, like: “Did you put…it in the breadbox?”
The plot, for a book about soldiers, is also kinda slow. But I’m about halfway through now and it seems to be picking up– there’s been a betrayl or something by a villain called Honey Cat, if you can believe it.
I’m also almost done with an ebook, which I’ve been reading at home between marathoning episodes of the Dick Van Dyke Show. Threshold by Jordan L. Hawk is the second book in the Whyborne & Griffin series, the first of which I’d reviewed earlier this year. It’s super fun, with Lovecraftian insect monsters bothering a mining town. And like the first book, it’s plagued by unfortunate word choices during the sex scenes. So awkward.
What are you reading this weekend?
