42. Just finished All the Beautiful Lies

by Peter Swanson. It's pretty good. He's best known at this point for The Kind Worth Killing which was excellent. Lies is his most recent.

I'm also reading Another Day which is essentially a companion novel to Every Day. Both are by David Levithan, and tell the story of A, who wakes up every day in a new body, and Rhiannon, the girl he falls in love with. ED is told from A's POV, AD from Rhiannon. Very interesting. A movie based on Every Day came out several months ago and was quite good.

I've also just started The Fate of Rome: Climate, Disease, & the End of an Empire by Kyle Harper. I'm 20 pages in and I'm hooked. For one thing, climate and epidemiology are two of my many favorite non fiction topics, so combining the two is as if the book was written specifically for me. A while back I started some other book about Rome, and had to put it down no more than 30 pages in because it required a much greater familiarity with all of the well-known people of that era than I will ever have. This one is nothing like that.
