Currently Reading: Ascendance of a Bookworm by Miya Kazuki
I just started Ascendance of a Bookworm: Part 1 Volume 1. A friend read it and recommended it to me because it reminded him of me. A woman with a poor constitution and a love of books is reincarnated into a fantasy world. However, most people are iliterate in the new world and books are rare and expensive. So, she sets out to become a librarian. It's a Japanese light novel, which is a new format to me.

Currently Reading: Gray Mountain by John Grisham
"The year is 2008 and Samantha Kofer’s career at a huge Wall Street law firm is on the fast track—until the recession hits and she is downsized, furloughed, and escorted out of the building. Samantha, though, is offered an opportunity to work at a legal aid clinic for one year without pay, all for a slim chance of getting rehired.” (Amazon)

Currently Reading: Bunny by Mona Awad
This book has a dark and twisty narrator, a culty college clique, and explores the boundaries of loneliness, obsession, and reality. I know I'll reread this one day so I can try to catch all the small details I missed the first time around.

Currently Reading: Fourth Wing by Rebecca Yarros
I just finished reading Fourth Wing. I read this because it was much hyped and it was well-worth it. If I had to describe it I would say it was like the Divergent series but with dragons! The main character also shares my name, which I like.
