It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

This week I finished Jeff Vandermeer's Annihilation, first of a trilogy that will be released in its entirety this year in paperback original. It was good! Creepy, trippy and good- very Christopher Priest. I'll do a full review this week but I recommend it to readers who like the weird.

I haven't decided what to pick up next. I need something different- I'm not going for another science fiction book yet, although I have several on deck that I'm interested in. I'm thinking maybe nonfiction, like Isabel Fonseca's Bury Me Standing, or Empire of the Summer Moon by S.C. Gwynne, about the Comanche wars. Or maybe Ellen Litman's new book, Mannequin Girl. I loved her first book so much and have been looking forward to this. Or maybe The Girl With A Clock For A Heart. What do you think I should read next?

(I'm still working my way through Hild and Rites of Passage. I'm finding Rites of Passage dull but it's a Booker winner and I need to read them all, so I'm doing my best.)

I also like to change genres when reading. However good the genre is it is nice to have a change.

Jill was telling me about Annihilation, and I've got it marked on Goodreads. I am all about weird! I'm still looking for your final word on Hild...I've got that one marked too. I just finished We Are Water on audio, and I loved it. First book that has really moved me in awhile. Otherwise I'm just slogging through stuff.
