Whatcha reading?

I’m high on finishing the editing pass I wrote about last month, so I thought I’d celebrate with a little community discussion! I switched my reading tracking over from Goodreads to The StoryGraph last year for a whole bunch of reasons (most notably, they’re not owned by Amazon and I’m in a real “Damn the Man! Save the Empire!” kind of mood these days), but a feature I big time squishy-heart love about it is their Reading Challenges. I never met a checkbox to-do list I didn’t like, so assigning books to prompts and marking them off when I finish is a big thrill for me.

I’ve been trying for the past several years to diversify my reading life, so my challenges this year revolve around reading more marginalized authors and characters. I also like to try and read books I’ve had queued the longest first. And of course, I’m always reading within my genre for professional research. And fun.

I’m currently reading Labyrinth Lost by Zoraida Córdova, an urban YA fantasy with a Latina main character, and Meet Cute by Helena Hunting, an open-door contemporary romance that includes both enemies-to-lovers and second-chance tropes. I typically go for eBooks, because my ereader is easier to hold even when I’m having a bad joint pain day AND my library has an excellent digital selection.

How about you, friends? What are you reading? And why? And how? HELP ME FILL THE EVER-HUNGRY MAW OF THE TBR BEAST! Comment below and let’s swap recs!
