    E-book: She Who Became the Sun by Shelly Parker-Chan. I'm only 15% into it, but it's good so far. Paper book: Harrow the Ninth by Tamsyn Muir. I'm re-reading this one before digging into the sequel. I love this series!

    E-book: Minor Mage by T. Kingfisher. She's my favorite author, and this book is a fun, fast read. Paper book: A Thousand Steps Into Night by Traci Chee. A bit of a slow start, but it's got a really interesting premise, and I'm a sucker for anything Japanese and Japanese -inspired. :LOL:

    E-book: Nature's Wild Ideas, by Kristy Hamilton. An overview of some of the inventions that have been inspired or improved by nature. Interesting stuff, but she hasn't mentioned any technology developed in the last 10 years yet. Hopefully that will change in the second half of the book. Paper...

    Ooof, the ADHD gremlins. I'm so sorry its bothering you! Have you tried playing music or using a fidget toy while you read? I like the little pop-it toys myself. Sometimes that little bit of sound/motion will help me settle in to a book. How about short story collections or comics...

    E-book: Falling in Love with Hominids by Nalo Hopkinson. Short stories, and they're a little creepier than I was expecting so far. Paper book: Hazel's Theory of Evolution by Lisa Jenn Bigelow. Recommended by a friend. Though I don't usually go for realistic fiction, I'm enjoying this one so far.
