June 2023 Reads

Didn't get through too many books this month. Maybe July will have some beach reads?

Create Dangerously by Albert Camus

I've loved Camus for awhile because of his philosophical work, so I thought I'd give this short essay a try. It reads like something that would be assigned as homework--heavy-handed and detailed--but it still had some good points. Art isn't meant to be safe; it's meant to rage against traditional ways of thinking, current injustices, and accepted norms.

Ascension by Nicholas Binge

A mountain suddenly appears in the middle of the Atlantic, and a gang of scientists undertake an expedition to find out why. Parts of this sci-fi book were worthy of an eye roll, but overall it was engaging. The big question it asks: What are you willing to sacrifice for advancement's sake?

Lviv - Wrocław: Cities in Parallel by Jan Fellerer

I haven't finished this one yet, but I'm excited to get further into it. As someone who's spent time in Lviv and now lives in Wrocław, it's been interesting to see how these two cities--with similar histories of fluid borders--compare.
