This weekend I began reading ‘Where the Crawdads Sing’. I’m at Chapter 5, and I could see that this story is building up the character of Kya as a girl coming from very, very little. Another central character is also introduced, one who grew up with Kya (so it seems). I’m pretty interested in seeing where this story goes!
I’m also 3 hours into ‘The AI Who Loved Me’ by Alyssa Cole. That audiobook is getting pretty interesting, as it clearly sets up the romantic tension between Trinity and Wei!
