And since it's Wednesday, that means books:What I've just finishedModern Lovers
by Emma Straub, which was full of sparkling prose but also full of predictable plot points. I liked the Zoe/Jane+Elizabeth storyline best. The kids were cute, if overly familiar types. The husband's storyline was unfortunately both predictable and tedious and made me downgrade the book quit a bit.
I did like the sense of place it evoked, and the observation that New York City is a palimpsest and to feel like you've really lived here you need to remember three layers back (e.g., the boutique that used to be a toy store that used to be a Mailboxes).Star Wars: Lost Stars
by Claudia Gray
Again, I liked this but it was...I don't want to say rote, because I liked the characters and it did a good job of feeling like it took place within the GFFA and giving faces to the rank and file in the Imperial military, but it was very predictable (as I was reading, I felt like I could see the outline as each event happened and how it would tie in with the OT timeline). Or perhaps I've just read a lot more YA romance than a lot of people on goodreads who read Star Wars tie-ins and seemed surprised? Or I already know that Claudia Gray is a good writer so that didn't surprise me either?
Anyway, I like how it's always Wedge who shows up when people want to connect directly to the OT without bringing in the golden trio (though there's a line about RotJ-era Leia that made me cackle with glee) or Vader as a supporting character. Aw, Wedge. And I also liked the characterization of Mon Mothma.What I'm reading nowModern Romance
by Aziz Ansari. Interesting so far, though I just started it this morning so I'm not very far into it.What I'm reading next
All of the things I was eagerly anticipating for release have come out and been read (though possibly I will be seeking someone in the UK to get me a copy of "The Hanging Tree" next month if it actually comes out? Idek), so I don't know.
