Tsana’s September (and August) Status

Oops. Some of you may have noticed that I skipped my August status. Time and external pressures caused it to completely slip my mind. On the other hand, it's been a pretty quiet two months on the blog/reading/reviewing front for the same reason. Part of it is work-related deadlines eating up a lot of my time but part of it has been Defying Doomsday reading. The latter has gone quite well; Holly and I have finished making our way through the slush and are now narrowing down our shortlist to TOC-length. Exciting times.

Also, I am currently on exceptionally shitty hotel wifi, so this post will not have images in it like my updates usually do. Honestly I'll be glad if the text component posts within the first five tries.

What Have I Read?

What Am I Reading?

I recently started Empire Ascendant by Kameron Hurley, the sequel to Mirror Empire. I kind of wish there'd been a shorter gap between books because most of the names completely escaped my memory. But I've gotten back into it quickly enough.

I am also partway through Jason Nahrung's Blood and Dust, although I'm taking a break for now because my reading mood shifted.

I've also made some headway on Letters To Tiptree, edited by Alexandra Pierce and Alisa Krasnostein. It's a good book to dip into when I only have a short amount of time to read.
