I read enough in April to actually write a short post about it! It’s a miracle!
I’m still inching through Color of Law, but my progress slowed in the last week or so because I became hooked by Ann Leckie’s Ancillary series. So, right now the Central Branch of the Enoch Pratt library, which is an absolutely gorgeous old building, is being renovated. It’s still open, but all of the collections have been moved around as floors are done in stages; a copy of Ancillary Justice was on one of the very small displays and it caught my eye. Back in 2014, I read rave reviews, but couldn’t get past the first 100 pages. But this time, something clicked after the first couple of chapters. I finished it in a couple of days and then went back to the library to get the other two books, Ancillary Sword and Ancillary Mercy. Which I finished on Wednesday and then this morning. I’m not sure what about my reading style or taste has changed since 2014, but the dual timeline didn’t bother me at all this time around, and I enjoyed the default she, which made me think about how gender roles even in SFF are very traditionally driven.
Early in the month I tried and failed to read Patricia Briggs’ Burn Bright, but something mentioned casually early on squicked me so I DNF’d it and returned it to the library. Done with Briggs, I think, unless she revisits Hurog at some point.
