Good morning, folks! It’s been a good week: I’ve got back on top of comments I’ve owed for nearly a month, and I’m ready to get myself into more trouble again! I’ve also got some new books (though still not my hard copy of Jo Walton’s Lent… grrrr!) and I’ve been reading a fair bit.
[Edit: this did not go live on Saturday for some unknown reason. I was wondering why I hadn’t seen any comments!]
Read this week:
Reviewed this week:
–Middlegame, by Seanan McGuire. The complex timeline made my reading experience a little jerky, but I loved the relationship between the characters and a lot of the ideas. 4/5 stars
–Heartstopper, by Alice Oseman. Aaarggh it’s so cute. 4/5 stars
–Raven Stratagem, by Yoon Ha Lee. Aaarggh it’s so clever. 4/5 stars
–Magic Burns, by Ilona Andrews. I continue to think these books are underrated by a lot of people, though the pacing in this book is a bit off for me. 4/5 stars
–WWW Wednesday. The usual update!
Out and about:
–NEAT science: ‘Mutants are taking over.‘ Yep, you contain mutant cells, probably even cells with changes that can lead to cancer… and that’s (probably) totally fine.
–NEAT science: ‘An easier way to amplify DNA.‘ Want to learn about how to copy DNA in the lab? Given news about a new technique for that, I explained the genius of the old technique… and why this new one would be such an improvement.
So that’s me. How’re you doing? What are you reading? What are you stacking your shelves with? Talk to me! I promise I will reply soon this time.
