The #litereads week of The Cartographer Wasps and the Anarchist Bees by E. Lily Yu has come to an end! This science fiction short story based around real scientific evidence of anarchist behaviours in bees was fascinating but also just a ton of fun to read. You can read my full review in the link below. If you read the story, I hope you'll leave a comment to share your thoughts! New selection coming shortly.

These were the chosen books for our #LitsyATXReadersSociety meeting today. This month‘s topic was: something read by someone else in the club last year 😊. The tagged title has rave reviews from three club members now, so it‘s added to my TBR!

I‘m tagging the other books in the comments ❤️📚

Our newest #litereads pick is The Cartographer Wasps and The Anarchist Bees by E. Lily Yu. This hard science fiction short story was inspired by the author's reading of entomological papers about anarchist behaviour in honeybees, and it was nominated for many awards. You can read the full story for free through text or audio at links found in the full article. Once you've read the story, comment and share your thoughts.

I have read 4 books so far in 2020, all of them involving 1 catastrophe or another:
Full Rip 9.0--earthquakes
Midnight in Chernobyl--nuclear accident
Wave--tsunami
the 2020 Commission Report on the North Korean Nuclear Attacks--nuclear war

I need some lighter reading.

Mehso-so

I enjoyed half of the short stories, and found the rest difficult to get through. I‘m starting to realise I‘m not the biggest fan of short stories collections in general, so I‘m not sure this is a fault of the book but rather that I‘m just picky.

4/5⭐ Oooh, I knew exactly which points of the pompous Mr. Talbot's letters would piss off Isabella (they pissed me off as well), and to no one's surprise, she ripped him a new asshole both in letter form and in the incredibly satisfying conclusion.

The Melancholy of Mechagirl | Catherynne M. Valente

Finished just in time—this has to go back to the library today!

This is a lovely volume of stories and poems connected in some way to Japan. Catherynne M. Valente is one of my favorite authors, so I already knew I would love this. I was pleased to see the novella Silently and Very Fast reprinted here and I enjoyed it a lot. I also particularly enjoyed the ghost story “Ghosts of Gunkanjima” and the dystopian “Fade to White.”
