Reading Update
Empire GamesEmpire Games and Dark StateDark State (Empire Games 1-2) by Charles Stross. The first two books of a trilogy set in the Merchant Princes’ universe sustain the intrigue and suspense of the original series and contain many familiar faces. Now, here’s hoping I can remember all of the details long enough for the final book to be released…
An Unkindness of MagiciansAn Unkindness of Magicians by Kat Howard. Very good story about the magical families who live in New York and their challenges to choose a new leader. If there are more books about this world, I will definitely read them!
Herding Cats (Sarah's Scribbles, #3)Herding Cats (Sarah’s Scribbles #3) by Sarah Andersen. Funny and so very, very on point.
Mockingbird (Miriam Black, #2)Mockingbird (Miriam Black #2) by Chuck Wendig. Decent dark urban fantasy about a psychic who can tell how people die if she touches them. I finished it, but I have no desire to read any more in this series.
Bloodshot (Cheshire Red Reports, #1)Bloodshot and Hellbent (Cheshire Red Reports, #2)Hellbent (Cheshire Red Reports 1-2) by Cherie Priest. Good pair of books about a vampire who works as a thief and is used to going it alone… but that is definitely changing, rather to her chagrin. This was obviously intended to be a longer series, but… the second book came out in 2011, so it seems unlikely it will be continued. The second book concludes tidily, but there’s a larger story arc that’s left hanging.

Fearless (Pax Arcana, #3)Fearless, In Shining Armor (Pax Arcana, #4)In Shining Armor, and Legend Has It (Pax Arcana, #5)Legend Has It (Pax Arcana #3-5) by Elliott James. Good series about John Charming, former member of the Knights Templar, not-quite-werewolf, trouble magnet. Book 5 sort of felt like it could be the last book…
Charmed I'm Sure (Pax Arcana #0.01)Charmed I’m Sure, Don't Go Chasing Waterfalls (Pax Arcana #0.02)Don’t Go Chasing Waterfalls, Pushing Luck (Pax Arcana #0.03)Pushing Luck, Surreal Estate (Pax Arcana #0.04)Surreal Estate, Dog-Gone (Pax Arcana #0.05)Dog-Gone, Bulls Rush In (Pax Arcana #0.06)Bulls Rush In, Talking Dirty (Pax Arcana #0.07)Talking Dirty, and Low Elf Esteem (Pax Arcana #0.08)Low Elf Esteem (Pax Arcana .01 – .08) by Elliott James. These eight short stories are set before the five main Pax Arcana novels and tell the tale of how one John Charming ended up in bartending in Clayburg.
Sins & Shadows (Shadows Inquiries, #1)Sin & Shadows and Ghosts & Echoes (Shadows Inquiries #2)Ghosts & Echoes, Gods & Monsters (Shadows Inquiries #3)Gods & Monsters, and Lies & Omens (Shadows Inquiries, #4)Lies & Omens (Shadows Inquiries 1-4) by Lyn Benedict. Decent urban fantasy series about a PI who’s kind of mean to everyone around her as she charges blindly forward… Also, this is an entire and complete series, which is nice.

Reading Update
Steal Like an Artist: 10 Things Nobody Told You about Being CreativeSteal Like an Artist: 10 Things Nobody Told You About Being Creative by Austin Kleon. Pretty good (and very short) ebook that’s exactly what the title says.
Lies SleepingLies Sleeping (Peter Grant #7) by Ben Aaronovitch. Good continuation of the series – it’s all hands on deck trying to catch Faceless Man #2 (and Lesley) before they do Something Very Bad.
Rivers of London Volume 6: Water WeedWater Weed (Rivers of London #6) by Ben Aaronovitch. Very good addition to the series. I hope everyone who read the Rivers of London series knows that the graphic novels aren’t standalone but actually develop the overarching story arc, too.
The Everything BoxThe Everything Box and The Wrong Dead Guy (Another Coop Heist #2)The Wrong Dead Guy (Another Coop Heist 1-2) by Richard Kadrey. Ok series about magic-resistant thief Charlie Cooper and the Department of Peculiar Science.
Countdown City (Last Policeman, #2)Countdown City and World of Trouble (The Last Policeman, #3)World of Trouble (Last Policeman 2-3) by Ben H Winters. With only a few months to go before a surprise!asteroid takes out Earth, society has completely broken down but a former police detective hasn’t given up looking for answers.
Roses and RotRoses and Rot by Kat Howard. Very good story about two sisters who are accepted for a nine-month artists’ retreat and slowly realize they’re living in a faery tale.
CharmingCharming and Daring (Pax Arcana, #2)Daring (Pax Arcana 1-2) by Elliott James. Good series about John Charming, former member of the Knights Templar, not-quite-werewolf, trouble magnet.
The Bullet Journal Method: Track the Past, Order the Present, Design the FutureThe Bullet Journal Method: Track the Past, Order the Present, Design the Future by Ryder Carroll. As you’d expect from the guy who came up with bullet journaling, this book has very clear how-to explanations and examples. The tone reminded me why I don’t read productivity books – they exhaust me.
Dot Journaling: A Practical Guide: How to Start and Keep the Planner, To-Do List, and Diary That’ll Actually Help You Get Your Life TogetherDot Journaling: A Practical Guide: How to Start and Keep the Planner, To-Do List, and Diary That’ll Actually Help You Get Your Life Together by Rachel Wilkerson Miller. reread. I reread this since I was reading The Bullet Journal Method – Miller’s book is a nice example of a slightly different way to bullet journal. And her many layout examples are frequently more helpful than those of The Bullet Journal Method.
The Sound of PaperThe Sound of Paper by Julia Cameron. Abandoned because too much of the advice was higher power based.
