I have not been reading lately and I have definitely missed holding a book in my hands. This recent dry spell was directly caused by my graduate courses and other obligations on my time and attention. I am happy to say I have a break, albeit a short one, before my next set of courses begin and I am planning to get back into reading with hopefully no lengthy disruptions like the past several weeks.
I grabbed a few new books just yesterday and they are going to be my return to the lovely world of reading. I figured I’d share my current reading lineup.
Fugitive Telemetry is the sixth entry into The Murderbot Diaries which I greatly enjoy. This novella came out just last week and is going to be my first book since my unintended hiatus. You will likely see a book recommendation for this one in the next week or so.
Project Hail Mary
Project Hail Mary is Andy Weir’s new book that released just this week. He is best known for his first book, The Martian, and I am excited to dive into this one despite not knowing much about it aside from the fact it centers around a lone astronaut who (maybe) finds an ally in an alien.
The Library at Mount Char
The Library at Mount Char has been on my list for some time and I was planning on reading it before my studies consumed my time. I plan to read it after the two books listed above. I can’t remember exactly which author discussed this book or when I first heard of it, but it sounded like something I would really enjoy.
So there we go. My short lineup of books I hope to read this month. I will be starting Fugitive Telemetry today and breaking this unnatural and unholy lack of reading with a story I’m sure I will love as it is Murderbot. Again, you may see me recommending these books as I finish them (should I like them enough to do so). My lack of posts on this blog are also a consequence of recent time constraints and I hope to get back into the rhythm of reading and posting.

Welcome back! I’ll be interested to read Andy Weir’s new book – I wasn’t that keen on The Martian but I liked Artemis.

I’ll be sure to post about it, though you may read it before then depending on how fast I get through it.
