Good morning, folks! As this goes live, I’ll be spending a weekend in a holiday cottage, possibly ignoring my emails, definitely doing things like sleeping in and going swimming. I will catch up with everything when I get back, I pinky-promise. Since I’m technically away from the bunnies, I have to go with tradition — so here is a pic of Breakfast from earlier this week. He jumped up onto my study notes to make it clear that I should have other priorities. Like petting him.
Meanwhile, I got some new books this week, so of course, it’s time to showcase them.
Received to review:
I asked for American Hippo for the short stories included, but y’all should be all over it for the novellas too, if you haven’t read them. Hero!! <3
Bought (with a gift voucher from my rabbits):
What, your pets don’t buy you book vouchers?
Books read this week:
Reviews posted this week:
–The Black Tides of Heaven, by JY Yang. I really got to love Akeha and the world of this book! All aspects of it: the magic, the gender stuff… <3 4/5 stars
–The Red Threads of Fortune, by JY Yang. A great followup, though I kind of like Akeha more than Mokoya, even if she seems like more the protagonist of the series as a whole. 4/5 stars
–Void Black Shadow, by Corey J. White. This goes some really dark places, with some really good writing. 4/5 stars
–Time Was, by Ian McDonald. Hello, Bury Your Gays trope. Nice to see you aga — wait. 2/5 stars
–Artificial Condition, by Martha Wells. YAAAAY MURDERBOT. 4/5 stars
What’re you doing this weekend? Hoping for plenty of time to read? I sure am!
