Reading project, week ending 1 Aug 2021

What have I read this week? Sorry, it’s late.

The Forever War by Joe Haldeman

This is a science fiction novel about Mandella, a man who is drafted into an interstellar war. I was ambivalent. While I found the story interesting, I found it quite dated in some respects which really impacted on my enjoyment. I might read more by this author.

Cemetery Boys by Aiden Thomas

This is a YA novel about Yadriel, a trans boy who is struggling to be accepted by his community. I really enjoyed this; Yadriel is a great character, as are his friends and family. The plot was interesting and it gave me a glimpse into a community I don’t know much about. I would definitely read more by this author.
