what subverts you been have so recently? reading

So subverts what have you been reading recently?

Ann Leckie - Ancillary Justice

I just love this passage:

Quote:She was probably male, to judge from the angular mazelike patterns quilting her shirt. I wasn't entirely certain. It wouldn't have mattered, if I had been in Radch space. Radchaai don't care much about gender, and the language they speak – my own first language – doesn't mark gender in any way. This language we were speaking now did, and I could make trouble for myself if I used the wrong forms. It didn't help that cues meant to distinguish gender changed from place to place, sometimes radically, and rarely made much sense to me.

Cool

If you like Arthurian legend, I'd recommend Sword at Sunset by Rosemary Sutcliff. It's a non-magical (i.e. with no Merlin) retelling of the story from an imagined historical perspective with Arthur as a post-Roman warrior king.

She's actually done a three-volume reworking of Le Morte D'Arthur as well, but I've not read those.

Arthurian Trilogy and Sword at Sunset added to Amazon cart. I'm excited. I found a copy of Geoffrey Monmouth's History of the Kings of Britain in a bookstore in Texas this summer, so this will go nicely with my collection lol.

Something else i have been reading to write is a "How To Be Happy" Stephen Fry life lists book i got for my 29th birthday i received from my beautiful parents. 

Upon reading "list bands you have seen", one big page of all the ones I really remember in 15 minutes was written out. It does not have to be exhaustive, like most exercise in life, to be beneficial...and most times people overlap in my favourite gig experiences. Smile

Thanks for reminding me of the gender book How Not To Be A Boy Statto. It's available on Audible. I think I might use my credit for the month on it. The deal i get charges me £7.99 per 31 days of normal time. You can save books in your library like a bookcase.

I have been previously reading The Chimp Paradox.
