"8 Books with Bi or Homoromantic Asexual Women Characters"

I need to check this list out a bit more later. There are a few books on it that I either haven't read yet or didn't even know existed. One thing, though: when was it ever mentioned that Every Heart a Doorway's Nancy is biromantic?

Some odd little short stories
Pastoralia - George Saunders

Published in 2000, this book was somehow completely off my radar. The six short stories in this volume all feature people who are generally unhappy. They are unhappy for different reasons, but every one of them is trying their best, and none are wallowing in their unhappiness.


Pastoralia, my favorite of the stories, features a man who is working as a caveman in a museum exhibit. Living at the museum full time, he is trying to make enough money for his young son's medical treatment.


Another story features a young man working as a stripper of sorts, trying to support his aunt, his two cousins, and each of their young children. With no education and no other options, his aunt makes a plan.


The other 4 stories also feature men--boy to middle aged--who are unhappy in their lives. None have given up. In many ways these stories reflect the common theme of unhappy people, but Saunders gives his characters agency that they act on.


With under 200 pages, this book is a quick read and highly recommended for fans of short stories and unusual story lines.

Corey's Book Corner: "Fluffy Romance with Little to No Sex on the Page"

A list for me to look over later. Although, FYI, "little-to-no sex" doesn't mean "no graphic sex." The one listed work that I've read, Alyssa Cole's A Princess in Theory, has three sex scenes, all of which I consider to be fairly graphic. But I do agree that it's more focused on romance than sex, and it's certainly fluffy. I'll browse the list for other things I might want to add to my TBR.
