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.

Our Endless Numbered Days

Our Endless Numbered Days - Claire Fuller So creepy, so good.

A father takes his daughter into the woods saying the world has ended. That same daughter is rescued years later, her father dead. There's something of the doomsday prepper/child abductor infused in the plot the whole time, and and mystery of what exactly happened keeps the reader enthralled (though the writing is good enough to do that anyway--a great use of a child's perspective where necessary and changing it over time as the main character ages).
