And a very linkity New Year to you!

Reading Update
Obviously WAY too long since I put one of these together. D’oh!
This Is How We FlyThis Is How We Fly by Anna Mariano. Good YA fiction about a high school student just trying to survive the summer before senior year without her stepmom melting down at her and leaving again. Her best friend gets her into real-life quidditch.
The Poetry of Strangers: What I Learned Traveling America with a TypewriterThe Poetry of Strangers: What I Learned Traveling America with a Typewriter by Brian Sonia-Wallace. I gave up on this about 1/4 of the way through it. I just didn’t care. Perhaps due to my 2020 mood? Not sure.
Dead Lies Dreaming (The Laundry Files, #10)Dead Lies Dreaming (Tales of the New Management 1) by Charles Stross. Initially I was disgruntled about this being set in the Laundry Files world with a new set of characters. But then I got completely sucked in after a while, so… :shrugs:
Mark of the Demon (Kara Gillian #1)Mark of the Demon, Blood of the Demon (Kara Gillian #2)Blood of the Demon, Secrets of the Demon (Kara Gillian #3)Secrets of the Demon, andSins of the Demon (Kara Gillian #4)Sins of the Demon (Kara Gillian 1-4) by Diana Rowland. Ok paranormal series about a police detective who secretly summons demons on the side. But then something goes awry…
Rivers of London Volume 8: The Fey and the FuriousThe Fey and the Furious (Rivers of London 8) by Ben Aaronovitch. Ok addition to this comic book series.
Silent City: A Claire Codella MysterySilent City, Forgotten City (Claire Codella Mystery #2)Forgotten City, and Unholy City (Claire Codella #3)Unholy City (Claire Codella 1-3) by Carrie Smith. Pretty good series about an NYPD detective who’s just returned after 10 months of treatment for lymphoma. (Not sure there will be any more to this series.)
Stuff I've Been Feeling LatelyStuff I’ve Been Feeling Lately by Alicia Cook. Good book of poetry with the first half of the book being the poems and the second half being the “remixes” (blackout versions of the poems).

  1. Wow, that’s a lot of books! (Though yes, I saw the note that the update had been delayed a while. It’s still a lot of books.)

    That article about JK Rowling is long, but good. I hadn’t really put the control issue into play with her take on the whole thing, and never heard the bit where her own domestic abuse was tied to her transphobia. (It makes sense. I still think it’s problematic, but at least there’s a possible reason for it.) Though I do have to disagree with the author of the article… there is that one bit at the beginning of Potter 7 where Tonks transforms into Moody for that “find the real Harry” shell game thing.

    Love the history of the cardigan! (And the cardigan itself.) And also the birds with horns thread… though it took me to the end to remember which link I had clicked on to get there. 😉

    Honk! (I’m always up for Untitled Goose mash-ups.)
