Currently Reading!

I know, I've been slack with posting.
I've been vlogging a bit more lately which is good, but neglecting my blog, my stitching and my reading.

As you can see the whole challenge I set myself for reading a book day didn't last long.

I hit a bit of a reading slump and then had a bunch of life stuff pop up.

I'm currently reading two books actively.

I picked this up at my library thinking it was a steampunk style book, I've been super curious about steampunk fiction.
This is a book written as if the author was a persona of a Kurt Vonnegut character.
It's really fast paced and doesn't have a set timeline as such.
It does jump around, but not in a way that makes it hard to follow.
It follows an Earth man who has decided to explore space to find the answers to his questions. He's kind of forced off the Earth, but I'll leave that to you to read why :p
It's very tongue in cheek, with lots of aliens. And alien sex organs.
The character is kind of like the David Attenborough of aliens and alien society/sex.

This is the other book I am reading at the moment.
This was sent to me for review by the author, which always makes me smile and feel good when people want me to read something they worked hard on.
This is a fantasy set in and around India and it's mythology.
It takes inspiration from mythology but does not claim to be accurate, which is why I feel it's fantasy and not a mythological fiction type book.
So far I am really enjoying it. I'm not super far into it, but the 150 pages or so I have read have been great.
