What have I read this week?
Billion Dollar Loser: The Epic Rise and Spectacular Fall of Adam Neumann and WeWork by Reeves Wiedeman
This is a nonfiction book about the company WeWork and its founder, Adam Neumann. I found it interesting, even though the writing was a little annoying in places (a weird obsession with people’s relative heights, for example).
Clockwork Boys: Book One of the Clocktaur War and The Wonder Engine: Book Two of the Clocktaur War by T. Kingfisher
These are fantasy novels about a woman named Slate who is on a suicide mission to find out about the Clockwork Boys so that her city can fight them. I enjoyed this; the world is interesting, the characters are believable, and it’s a fun read, if a bit dark in places. I’ll definitely be reading more by this author.
Swordheart by T. Kingfisher
This is a fantasy novel set in the same world as The Clocktaur War, about a woman named Halla who inherits a sword with a man bound to it. I enjoyed this; it was a lot of fun and I really liked the characters.
Minor Mage by T. Kingfisher
This is a fantasy novella about a young boy named Oliver who is a minor wizard and is forced from his village to find them rain. I enjoyed this; it’s a fun read and I really liked the armadillo.
