Middlemarch by George Eliot (novel, audiobook) - first third
I listened to, like, 11 hours of the audiobook and it was soooo good, but then my three week loan on Libby ran out and I only just got it back (12 April) so maybe it's a May Consumption Diary write-up deal.
Tell Me Lies by J.P. Pomare (novel, audiobook)
Another thriller from the scarily prolific Kiwi-in-Oz Pomare -- this one a straight to Audible exclusive. Suffers a little from being on the short side (but not as much as Dervla McTiernan's The Sisters), which limits the twists, turns and red herrings that the author can throw our way, but this isn't just throwaway pulp. Pomare is a sharp writer and has a long career ahead of him.
Serotonin by Michel Houellebecq (novel, audiobook)
The posture of Yep, the author is a flawed piece of shit too, because you're a piece of shit dear reader, is all well and good, but it quickly feels claustrophobic and solipsistic.
But is it something I'd recommend you read? Will I rush back into Houellebecq's back catalogue?
An American Sunrise by Joy Harjo (poetry, audiobook)
History and biography merge. Poetry emerges.
