this list never shrinks

My "to read" list is always ever-growing! I've put on a lot of Asian-American authors writing things other than That Infernal Immigrant Story, which I'm always excited about, but they don't always end up my favorite reads -- I guess I still tend toward comfort genre stuff, like a tropey regency romance, or cozy mystery, or fantasy quests. (The Astreiant series is fun for me, a combination of mystery/crime-solving and fantasy world. Julian Kestrel mysteries was another good blend of regency historical plus mystery murder.)

I finished the original m/m royal arranged marriage in spaaace story, The Course of Honor by avoliot, recently after patiently waiting a couple months for the full thing to be posted. It is utterly delightful and worth it. The world and the characters are charming and offer a fun blend of real emotional tension (emotional h/c!), political intrigue, and tropes (sharing a bed for warmth!). I could live for another story or two in this world, but I'd like to see if the author does anything else either.

Soon, it will be June, and I will make a lengthy book post. This is what I look forward to in fandom now, more so than really participating in fandom at all. (Still reading fic and reblogging art/pretty pictures, but that seems to be an okay balance for me along with work, politics, real life, and so on.)

It is so hard to keep the 'to read' list to a manageable level. Especially when I decide to reread some favourite Discworld novels...
