[personal profile] coffeeandink asked what I've been reading lately! Unfortunately most of it has been school-related, as my 2016 bookshelf can attest. Last term I read a few ethnographies for class, which were interesting, but I wouldn't exactly call them funtimes reading. I'm hoping to finish Edward Said's Orientalism before this semester's readings swamp me.

My leisure reading last year was mostly limited to fic, since it's shorter and doesn't require much brainpower; this will likely continue as I have area exams coming up. The only new book I read for fun was Sam Starbuck's Nameless, and I reread Kristin Cashore's Graceling series somewhere around the end of summer/beginning of fall (all thanks to forgotten e-copies). I also spent some of my brainless non-gaming time this winter break rereading the Kushiel series, The Redemption of Althalus, a few Agatha Christie books (Cat Among the Pigeons, Lord Edgware Dies, The Murder of Roger Ackroyd, By the Pricking of my Thumbs), and Georgette Heyer's The Unfinished Clue. I started Nisi Shawl's Everfair but didn't have time to finish it before I came back north. That and anything on my fun to-read list will have to wait until June-ish, I think.

I've been meaning to get my hands on Everfair but we have to wait a little while here for the library to acquire it. Grrr.

(added you on GR!)
