What I Happen to Be Reading At the Moment

"A thirteen-year-old is a kaleidoscope of different personalities, if not in most ways a mere figment of her own imagination. At that age, what and who you are depends largely on what book you happen to be reading at the moment.”


While not 13 anymore, the desire to read almost anything and everything in order to read for fun and for experience is still around. I'm currently working on my PhD in a physical science, but I love to read and books are one of my non-science hobbies.

Authority: A Novel

Authority: A Novel - Jeff VanderMeer The second of the Southern Reach novels takes a different turn. First, it uses actual names for characters. Second, the subgenre changes from adventure/horror to spies, which is very appropriate for this experimental series. I didn't find it as strong as the first one, but that's okay because the third in the series brings the whole adventure more full circle.
