Reading Update
Last Call at the Nightshade LoungeLast Call at the Nightshade Lounge by Paul Krueger. Bartenders keeping humanity safe from horrors from another dimension! This was pretty silly, yet for some reason I read the whole thing.
Shattered Soul (A.I.R., #1)Shattered Soul, Broken Paths (AIR, #2)Broken Paths, Stolen Sight (A.I.R., #3)Stolen Sight, and Fenrisúlfr (AIR, #3.5)Fenrisulfr (AIR 1-3, 3.5) by Amanda Booloodian. Ok series about a psychic who works for a secret government agency keeping creatures of myth and legend out of the public eye.
Hammers on Bone (Persons Non Grata, #1)Hammers on Bone and A Song for Quiet (Persons Non Grata, #2)A Song for Quiet (Persons Non Grata 1-2) by Cassandra Khaw. John Persons is a private investigator… or is he? Lovecraftian, and I have no idea what actually happened. Or do I?
A Hat Full of SkyA Hat Full of Sky and Wintersmith (Discworld, #35)Wintersmith (Tiffany Aching 2-3) by Sir Terry Pratchett. Excellent young adult fantasy series continuing the adventures of one Tiffany Aching, witch.

Nightshades (Nightshades, #1)Nightshades, Switchback (Nightshades, #2)Switchback, and Outbreak (Nightshades, #3)Outbreak (Nightshades 1-3) by Melissa F Olson. Good trilogy about a Chicago-based FBI agent whose division is charged with investigating vampires on a kidnapping and killing spree. He’s aided by an ancient vampire who’s helping partially by her own choice, partially by duress. A couple of the books had one of my least favorite literary devices, the unnecessary cliffhanger “epilogue”.
The Lovecraft Squad: All Hallows HorrorAll Hallows Horror (The Lovecraft Squad #1) by John Llewellyn Probert. DNF. I made it about halfway through this book and decided I just didn’t care whether the remaining characters lived or died.
Black HelicoptersBlack Helicopters by Caitlin R Kiernan. Made it about a third of a way through this futuristic novella and remained both confused and uncaring, so I stopped reading.
Clean (Mindspace Investigations, #1)Clean, Payoff (Mindspace Investigations, #1.5)Payoff, and Sharp (Mindspace Investigations, #2)Sharp (Mindspace Investigations 1, 1.5, 2) by Alex Hughes. Pretty good series about a high-powered telepath and recovering addict who works for the police and is more or less trying to stay clean.
The Westing GameThe Westing Game by Ellen Raskin. Good young adult mystery about the quirky residents of a small apartment building who are suddenly thrust into a puzzle game to see which of them will receive a sizable inheritance.

The Wee Free Men (Discworld, #30; Tiffany Aching, #1)The Wee Free Men (Tiffany Aching #1, Discworld #30) by Sir Terry Pratchett. This was my first Discworld book and it was an quirky, enjoyable read. My plan is to read the four Tiffany Aching books (young adult) as an intro to Discworld and go from there.
Magicians Impossible: A NovelMagicians Impossible by Brad Abraham. Ok book about a bartender who discovers at age 30, after his estranged father dies, that he’s a wizard. Sounds like my perfect read, but something about the book kept me emotionally distant from it.
Winter Tide (The Innsmouth Legacy, #1)Winter Tide and Deep Roots (The Innsmouth Legacy, #2)Deep Roots (The Innsmouth Legacy 1-2) by Ruthanna Emrys. Good historical scifi set in the aftermath of World War 2 a young woman, freshly released from an internment camp, slowly works her way back to her roots. This is set in the world HP Lovecraft created, minus the misogyny and racism.

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.
