Weekly Roundup

Posted September 14, 2019 by Nicky in General / 11 Comments

Good morning, folks! It’s been a busy week, and I’m not honestly sure where the time has gone. Ah well.

I did at least get an Amazon voucher from the bunnies this week, so I’ve indulged in some ebooks — and I got a couple of new releases, too.


Cover of A Song for a New Day by Sarah Pinsker Cover of The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow Cover of Return of the Black Death by Susan Scott and Christopher Duncan Cover of Thornbound by Stephanie Burgis

Cover of The Perfect Assassin by K.A. Doore Cover of The Haunting of Tram Car 015 by P. Djeli Clark Cover of Desdemona and the Deep by C.S.E. Cooney

Thank you, bunnies!

Finished reading this week:

Cover of The Body in the Dumb River by George Bellairs Cover of The King in the North by Max Adams Cover of Hekla's Children by James Brogden

Reviews posted this week:

The Aztecs, by Richard F. Townsend. Actually managed to make the Aztecs boring, though I imagine it’s a good scholarly resource. 2/5 stars
The Piltdown Forgery, by J.S. Weiner. A fascinating study, though it pulls back at the last minute to avoid incriminating the obvious culprit. 3/5 stars

Other posts:

WWW Wednesday. The weekly update on what’s been on my reading plate!

Out and about:

NEAT science: ‘What is a gene drive? I respond to a question about a genetic engineering technique that may help us eliminate malaria and other pests and diseases.

So that’s this week! How’s everyone else doing?

  1. This week has been one of those weeks where the finish line is in sight yet keeps receding day by day. I started the week hoping I could take Tuesday off; I ended the week planning to work over the weekend because I won’t get everything done by Tuesday night otherwise. But I’m on holiday in Cyprus from Wednesday, so next weekend will make up for it! We’ve pretty much agreed that we’re both knackered and are shameless enough about self care right now to treat this trip as a chance to sit someplace warm, read books, and drink wine (and, um, attend the wedding that is the reason we’re going. That’s non-negotiable. The touristing however? Optional).

    Book wise, I’m finally reading The Poison Song (AAAAAAAH TOR) and am alternating it with Bloodchild (so all the trilogy finales for me). So far so good on both – but I’m so worried my darlings are all about to die 0.0

    • Sarah Pinsker was in my tight-knit selective SF/F reading group back in the day on Goodreads, so I’m super excited to read more of her work. I should finish her short story collection, too…
