Plus, there was my usual traveling strategy of reading a Stephen King novel on the plane. I'm not sure what it is, exactly, but the creeping dread and horror distracts me from other things, like the unholy discomfort of the plane seat, probably designed by a member of the Spanish Inquisition.
Anyway, here's what I'm reading right now (some more actively than others!):
Flying Lessons and Other Stories edited by Ellen Oh. This is the first anthology from the We Need Diverse Books movement/nonprofit and I was so happy to be able to attend a panel on the genesis of this book. It's wonderful.
The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey. I'm almost done with this and I'm actually quite excited to see the film, as I think that the book naturally lends itself to cinema. Also, I quite like Chloë Moretz.
And I'm still reading An Ember in the Ashes, Want by Cindy Pon, and Wintersong by S. Jae-Jones. Just not as actively. I have to bang through them quickly, though! So many things to read! So many wonderful, diverse, lovely books!
