I live by this tbh ?

Exit West is a beautiful and melancholy and hopeful book.

Raven Stratagem | Yoon Ha Lee

AHHHHHH so good! I just raced through this book because I couldn't stop reading. Can't wait to read the rest of the series and get more into Cheris/Jedao's head.

2312: A Novel | Kim Stanley Robinson
Mehso-so

I'm reading 2312 & there are parts of it I like quite a bit, but its language continues to baffle me. It's sci-fi by content but it reads like “literary fiction.“ In general, despite the book's positive qualities (which include decent queer and polyam representation), I can't recommend it overall, though I'll post an update when I finish the book.

thehonestpuck About a third of the way in you find out a couple POV characters are Intersex, but the language Robinson uses for it is making me suspect that he is neither Intersex himself nor knows any Intersex people. There were a couple jarring & weird comments about autism early on in the book that I now think was in-character sentiment from the POV character at the time. 6mo
thehonestpuck There's one character, an ex of a POV character, that he masterfully never uses pronouns for, which was pretty cool once I twigged to it. 6mo

This is a VERY STRANGE book. I honestly can't tell if I like it or not.
