Hello, my other basic witches! The best holiday of the year may be over, but if you‘re still nursing your Halloween candy hangover, and not ready to trade your spooky vibes for aggressive Christmas cheer, check out this playlist I made for my #BasicWitchSwap. It‘s been giving me life even while I feel like death.

slightlyfoxed @sprainedbrain Yay! I had so much fun putting it together, I think I might try doing the same for future swaps. 2w

The Order of Time | Carlo Rovelli

I have become the worst at all forms of social media, but I‘m getting to be pretty effing strong at the gym.

Also, listening to this audiobook (yaaaas, Benedict Cumberbatch narrating) has me going “Okay, yes, got it, makes sense............... Wait, what? 🤯🤯🤯”

BillBlume Agreed about the audiobook. Got lucky and was able to borrow the ebook and audiobook at the same time. It‘s helping me a bit with absorbing this. Loving it so far! 1mo

Coming in at the eleventh hour, after radio silence all day. I‘d like to thank audiobooks, for making it possible to read while grocery shopping, and Overdrive, for making it possible to read during long Sunday afternoons at the reference desk. Maybe one day I‘ll make it through #24in48 #readathon without accidentally resetting my timer, but don‘t hold your breath.

#24in48 Hour 18 Challenge: I‘m not a huge romance reader, but I do love historical fantasy, which often comes served with juicy romantic subplots. Gail Carriger‘s Parasolverse books are the perfect combination of fluff, snark, and magic - plus this illustrated edition is gorgeous.

#24in48 Hour 12 Challenge: I don‘t listen to a ton of audiobooks, but when I do, they‘re non-fiction. I‘ve tried listening to fiction and (with the exception of The Ocean at the End of the Lane, because Neil Gaiman), I just can‘t do it. I‘ve also been a Scribd user for years now, and their audiobook selection is well worth the price.

#24in48 Hour 6 Challenge: Look, I read a lot of SFF. Like, A LOT. It‘s literally my job (#SciFiLibrarian). Picking favorites is impossible. So, here‘s a quick selection of SFF books that A) I loved & own in print, and B) were written by women. If you haven‘t read Murderbot yet, what are you even doing? Vicious is the best, it‘s first on my list of recs for SF haters. Amberlough caught be by surprise when I read it - there may have been tears. ⬇️

slightlyfoxed Holly Black is a YA classic for a reason. Too Like The Lightning is dense and twisty and confusing, but sometime I‘m in the mood for that, you know? 4mo

I‘ve been mostly absent from Litsy for a while now - I got busy at work, and I found a new hobby (#powerlifting), and for awhile I wasn‘t enjoying books the way I usually do. Which was my own fault - I tend to set really ambitious goals for myself (Read all the Hugo/Nebula/Locus Award nominees!) and force myself through them even when it‘s awful. But I‘m back! With a super messy #shelfie for #Riotgrams, because I am a mess.

Gentleman Jole and the Red Queen | Lois McMaster Bujold
post image

Actually finished this weeks ago, but I‘m doing a terrible job at Litsy lately, so🤷🏼‍♀️.
Anyways, this was a cute ending to a long sci-fi series. I read a lot of reviews criticizing the fact that it‘s essentially a romance (Did you actually read this series, because it‘s hardly the first, see: Shards of Honor, A Civil Campaign, Captain Vorpatril‘s Alliance), or that it retcons a character to be poly (semi-true, but believably done).

On to my #readathon book two - my primary goal for today is to finish the Vorkosigan series (only two books to go!). I have enjoyed the last few more than most of the middle volumes; I like post-Dendarii Miles better as a character, and it was nice to see Ivan finally get to do something other than play simple foil to Miles‘s cunning plots.

#Readathon #DeweysModernClassics mini challenge break! Since I pretty much exclusively read SFF, I feel like I‘m only qualified to guess at what books might become classics in those genres. While there are several that I‘m reasonably sure of, I feel like The Name of the Wind is almost guaranteed. (Also I love this edition and will take any excuse to post a picture of it.)
