This Week in Reading: Finishing up Space Opera, more time with Greek Gods, Plastic Magicians, and a Near Future Robotic Sports Murder Mystery

This week should be a really fun week in reading for me.

I’m finishing up Space Opera by Catherynne Valente. I’m about a third of the way through and so far it’s been a fun read filled with wry humor. For a book that’s about an intergalactic song contest it touches a lot on the human condition.

On audio I’m more than halfway through Circe by Madeline Miller. I’m really loving this one! The narrator is a great match for the material. I’ve always loved reading about the Greek gods, their various myths and legends. The author clearly has a great deal of familiarity with the sources and I love the way she breathes new life into these ancient tales.

Next up I have an eARC of The Plastic Magician by Charlie N. Holmberg. I am super excited to get to this one because I absolutely loved the Paper Magician Trilogy and tore through them all earlier this year (see my review here). I enjoyed the idea of channeling magic through materials, and also the romantic elements of the first series, so I’m looking forward to this spin off.

The last book I have planned to start this week is Head On by John Scalzi. The only book I’ve read by Scalzi is Lock In and I have to say, I really loved it for what was essentially a police procedural murder mystery. It could have been boring but the near future elements kept things fresh, especially navigating the world through someone who interacts with the world through a machine. I’m really excited for this one!

That’s the week I have planned, we’ll see how it goes! What is everyone else reading this week? Leave me a note in the comments, love to check out what other’s are enjoying. Happy reading!
