As is expected – after all this is a site dedicated to writing and reading – I have several books that I plan on reading this year. Here are just a few of the most anticipated ones.
Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng, now a Hulu series starring Reese Witherspoon, is a massive literary hit. I read it over the course of three days this Christmas. Was that because it was so good I couldn’t stop reading? Or because it was so bad I had to power through? Find out.
A first for this blog: I share a short story I wrote to celebrate Halloween. I don’t normally write short stories and this isn’t my best work, so be gently with it. Just something fun to celebrate this crazy, spooky holiday.
The Stray is a short, powerful book by a debut author with a lot of interesting thoughts on AI. Some parts of the story fell a bit flat for me, but overall this story left me thinking long after I finished reading it.
