 One thing I'm learning about myself is JUST HOW LONG it takes me to read a regular novel.  I'm still in the first half of Closed and Common Orbit by Becky Chambers.

I did read a number of graphic novels/manga over the last week, though.  Because I got a new review gig with Twin Cities Geek that gives me access to a ton of different forthcoming titles, I was able to read:

The Circle by Damon Clark / Alyza Zherno. My official review is posted here: Creepy Art Busts Through Horror Clichés. I also read, but haven't yet reviewed Infinite Seven by Dave Dwonch / Arturo Mesa.

I also read Haikyu!! (Volumes 1 and 2) and I'm more than half way through volume 3.  The Saint Paul library has the whole collection of them, so I though I might as well read them all.  I have volumes 4, 5, and 6 all in my TBR pile.  Haikyu! is great fun to read, but the anime might be more compelling to anyone who has never read much manga.  I mean it's a SPORTS manga and super-duper shounen on top of that. But Mason is reading these along with me, so I'm going to get pulling them out of the library until we run out.

Books on my TBR pile:

An Accident of Stars by Fox Meadows
Labyrinth Lost by Zoraida Córdova

And I just got a notice from the library that I have a couple others waiting for me.  But, the good news is that we're about to embark on a road trip across the American West (we're going to Yellowstone) and I'm sure there will be a lot of time for reading at the various hotels we'll be staying at.  Hopefully, I will be able to report in from Wyoming or wherever next week that I got a lot more read!

How about you?  What was your reading week like?

Managed to finish I Contain Multitudes, by Ed Yong. Non-fiction about the relationships between organisms as the microbes we/they co-exist with. By turns fascinating and terrifying,
