What have you just finished reading?

Bound in Blood (vol. 5 of the Chronicles of the Kencyrath by P.C. Hodgell), vol. 2 of the manga series 21st Century Boys by Naoki Urasawa, vol. 11 of the manga series Fushigi Yuugi Genbu Kaiden by Yuu Watase (and boy, is there a style whiplash between those two series ... ), and Redshirts by John Scalzi. The Hodgell was a re-read of an old favorite (and hmmm, where's my copy of Honor's Paradox, the next volume?); the other three were new. I'll write up the Scalzi at some point: I enjoyed it, but it was fairly slight for the most part.

(Oh, and the mysterious re-read I was doing earlier was The Diamond Age, or A Young Lady's Illustrated Primer, by Neal Stephenson.)

What are you currently reading?

I'm mostly reading bits and pieces of C.J. Cherryh's Regenesis (the sequel to Cyteen), for something I'm thinking about writing.

What do you think you'll read next?

Good question! Somewhere around the house is a copy of Among Others by Jo Walton: that's the last of the books I got for the winter holidays that I have not yet read. Or I could re-read N.K. Jemisin's Gujaareh books (The Killing Moon and The Shadowed Sun) so that I could write them up ... and the same with Jim C. Hines' Libriomancer. But there's an equal chance that I will dig out some old favorite to re-read, because that's my usual response to having finished something new.

No pressure intended, but if you do feel inspired afterward, I may not be able to quell my excitement. :D Which parts are you reading?

I'm trying to get Ari II's voice in my mind's ear for your h/c prompt! I thought I'd skip right to the loving domestic detail of everyone's new apartments in Strassenburg (which is the only part of it I'm crazy about, actually), but I'm getting distracted with some of the political bits leading up to it. Of course, Ari being worried and annoyed at Jordan's interference with Justin and Grant might be a better place to sample her voice anyway, given the prompt.

I don't know whether you read CJC's blog, Wave without a Shore, but she's setting up a new saltwater aquarium right now, and you can see so much of both Arianes' technical precision and Ari II's enthusiasm for her fish in the entries.

(And I might end up doing the Saiyuki prompt next anyway. I was reminded that I missed 58 day yesterday ... there's a Saiyuki fandom custom of referring to the main characters by numbers, based on puns that their names make in Japanese, and 58 is my favorite pairing. Of course there's always 85 day in August, but that's a way off.)
