This Week in Reading: More Young Assassin’s Seeking Vengeance, Brass Cities, Eurovision in Space, and Greek Gods

So, this week I’m finishing up on audio Godsgrave by Jay Kristoff. This is the second installment in The Nevernight Chronicle, the story of a young girl trained to be an assassin who is out to avenge her murdered family. I’m about 60% of my way through and enjoying it so far. The narration continues to be a joy. I’m a little worried about Mia’s actions in this book though and who she is choosing to trust. We’ll see how all that works out for her in the end.

I just started The City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty. This is a tale of magic set in 18th century Cairo. I have to say I’ve really been looking forward to this one as the setting feels utterly refreshing. Since I’m only about 3% into the book so far I don’t have many opinions yet except that I’m really enjoying the writing. Hopefully I’ll be able to finish this ebook before it expires from my library, as I started it a little late into the checkout and only have a few days left on it. Clock’s ticking!

Next up I have a copy of Space Opera by Catherynne M. Valente. I’m so excited for this book! It’s basically Eurovision in space and honestly it sounds wackadoodle and fun as hell. I read a few excerpts and really dig the tone of the book and the way it’s written so should be a fun read.

If I finish up my audiobook this week I’ll be checking out Circe by Madeline Miller. I’ve seen this one being mentioned here and there but a friend recommended the audiobook as the narration is great. This is a story based around the Greek pantheon and since that’s pretty much my jam this should connect well with me as a reader.

What is everyone else reading this week? Drop me a line in the comments and let me know! Have a great week!
