How did your weekend reading go? If you planned on anything specifically, did you read it?

Since last report, I have read:

  • The Lipstick Pastor by Tomi Makanjuola. This was quite rambly and could have done with quite a lot more editing. There were quite a few places where it wasn't clear who was speaking, and the viewpoint jumped around quite a lot too. Often the words were... not quite the right ones, e.g. the first page describes walls being painted with "orthopaedic paint". I wish it had been better edited, because it could have been a much better book if it had.
  • A Stranger In Olondria by Sofia Samatar. As noted a few weeks ago, I have this on my Kindle in a folder which suggests I've read it, but I can’t remember anything about it. Tried it again, gave up 11% of the way through. It just feels like very generic fantasy with nothing particularly compelling about it and a viewpoint character with next to no personality.

I think the next one will be a re-read of something I'm guaranteed to like :)

Too much facebook, not enough novel.

I've modified some of my notifications so I don't constantly get prompted to check my phone, but I also feel the strong need to check in with my people, so it's easy to get swamped by political stuff.
