Reading Update
Greywalker (Greywalker, #1)Greywalker, Poltergeist (Greywalker, #2)Poltergeist, Underground (Greywalker, #3)Underground, and Vanished (Greywalker, #4)Vanished (Greywalker 1-4) by Kat Richardson. Good urban fantasy series about a private investigator who, after being clinically dead for two minutes, finds herself drawn into the Grey – a world alongside ours, but filled with magic and the paranormal. The writing is very “noir” (choppy, declarative sentences in first person POV), which took me a while to settle into.
Things Are What You Make of Them: Life Advice for CreativesThings Are What You Make of Them: Life Advice for Creatives by Adam J Kurtz. What it says on the tin. Very short.
Monster Hunter International (Monster Hunter International, #1)International (Monster Hunter #1) by Larry Correia. B-movie monster hunting gun p0rn.
Feet of Clay (Discworld, #19)Feet of Clay (Discworld #19), Jingo (Discworld, #21)Jingo (Discworld #21), The Fifth Elephant (Discworld, #24)The Fifth Elephant (Discworld #24), Night Watch (Discworld, #29)Night Watch (Discworld #29), and Thud! (Discworld, #34)Thud! (Discworld #34) by Terry Pratchett. I love Sam Vines and the Night Watch.
Reaper Man (Discworld, #11)Reaper Man (Discworld #11) and Soul Music (Discworld, #16)Soul Music (Death #16) by Terry Pratchett. In the first, Death gets fired and has an existential crisis. In the second, Death doesn’t get fired and has an existential crisis.

Reading Update
Dreams of Shreds and TattersDreams of Shreds and Tatters by Amanda Downum. I am not really sure why I finished this – I certainly didn’t care for any of the characters and never engaged with the plot.

And I reread books 7-10 of Seanan McGuire’s October Daye series…

Brief linkity of brevity

It was a migrainey day, so you get dramatically reduced linkity – perfect for people in a hurry! 😉

Reading Update
Fathomless (Redemption's Heir, #2)Fathomless (#2) by Anne M Pillsworth. Very good continuation of this young adult trilogy as the kids head to Arkham to get some training for their magic and, of course, things get creepy and dangerous.
Chimes at Midnight (October Daye, #7)Chimes at Midnight, The Winter Long (October Daye, #8)The Winter Long, A Red-Rose Chain (October Daye, #9)A Red-Rose Chain, Full of Briars (October Daye, #9.3)Full of Briars, Once Broken Faith (October Daye, #10)Once Broken Faith, The Brightest Fell (October Daye, #11)The Brightest Fell, and Night and Silence (October Daye #12)Night and Silence (October Daye 7-12) by Seanan McGuire. Obviously I’m really enjoying this series, since I burned through it in just a couple of weeks and now I want to reread the whole thing again immediately. But I was really, really anxious whilst reading the 11th and 12th book.
Poems for the End of the World: Endings and beginnings 2015-2017 by Sage Liskey. What is there really to say about poetry? You like it or you don’t – I liked this small collection.

Reading Update
Wyrd Sisters (Discworld, #6)Wyrd Sisters (Discworld #6) by Terry Pratchett. Pretty good introduction to Granny Weatherwax and Nanny Ogg – I suspect if I were more familiar with Shakespeare’s plays, I would’ve gotten a lot more out of this one.
Hazard (West Hell Magic, #1)Hazard and Spark (West Hell Magic #2)Spark (West Hell Magic 1-2) by Devon Monk. Good series about a world where those with supernatural abilities aren’t allowed to play in the NHL, so they play in paranormal-only league. The first two books are about two brothers, a wizard and a werewolf, who are getting their start in the league.
Chaos Choreography (InCryptid, #5)Chaos Choreography, Magic for Nothing (InCryptid, #6)Magic for Nothing, and Tricks for Free (InCryptid, #7)Tricks for Free (InCryptid 5-7) by Seanan McGuire. Chaos Choreography: Once again, Verity’s part of a ballroom dancing reality tv show and things are, of course, complicated by her family’s work protecting supernatural beings. Magic for Nothing and Tricks for Free: Verity’s younger sister Antimony is sent to England to infiltrate the Covenant and things get complicated.
The Creative Habit: Learn It and Use It for LifeThe Creative Habit: Learn It and Use It for Life by Twyla Tharp. I just lost interest in it halfway through and have no interest in continuing.
Art MattersArt Matters: Because Your Imagination Can Change the World by Neil Gaiman, illustrated by Chris Riddell. Excellent small collection of inspirational essays and illustrations – I’ve already purchased a copy for a birthday gift…
1,000 Artist Journal Pages: Personal Pages and Inspirations1000 Artist Journal Pages: Personal Pages and Inspirations by Dawn DeVries Sokol. Exactly what the title says! 🙂
