Trailer Park Fae (Gallow and Ragged, #1)Trailer Park Fae, Roadside Magic (Gallow and Ragged, #2)Roadside Magic, and Wasteland King (Gallow and Ragged, #3)Wasteland King (Gallow & Ragged #1-3) by Lilith Saintcrow. Good trilogy about a war between the Seelie and Unseelie Courts (Summer and Unwinter) and the half-human/half-fae who get caught in the middle.
Night Shift (Jill Kismet, #1)Night Shift (Jill Kismet #1) by Lilith Saintcrow. Reread of this paranormal romance about a demon hunter whose powers are demon-enhanced. No desire to read more of the series. Last time I tried, I think I made it two books in before giving up…
The Do-It-Yourself Guide to Fighting the Big Motherfuckin' SadThe Do-It-Yourself Guide to Fighting the Big Motherfuckin’ Sad by Adam Gnade. What it says on the tin. It was fine. I don’t think the author and I would enjoy hanging out with each other, tho.
Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles, #1)Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles #1) by Marissa Meyer. Good young adult scifi twist on the Cinderella tale – Cinder is a cyborg.
On Looking: Eleven Walks with Expert Eyes by Alexandra Horowitz. Very good book about a woman who goes for walks with various experts (geologist, doctor, architect, etc) and experiences the various lens different people use to see the world.

Reading Update
The Mortal Word (The Invisible Library #5)The Mortal Word (The Invisible Library #5) by Genevieve Cogman. Another very good addition to this series. I devoured it in a single sitting.
Zero Sum GameZero Sum Game (Russell’s Attic #1) by SL Huang. Ambivalent about this one – I liked it well enough, but the rest of the series isn’t available because it’s being rereleased. By the time they’re all rereleased, I will have forgotten everything about this book.
A Gathering of Shadows (Shades of Magic #2)A Gathering of Magic (Shades of Magic #2) by VE Schwab. I gave up a few chapters in – it just wasn’t holding my interest for some reason.
The Iron Wyrm Affair (Bannon & Clare, #1)The Iron Wyrm Affair, The Red Plague Affair (Bannon & Clare, #2)The Red Plague Affair, The Ripper AffairThe Ripper Affair, and The Damnation Affair (Bannon & Clare, #1.5)The Damnation Affair (Bannon & Clare 1-3, 1.5) by Lilith Saintcrow. Very good magical Holmesian steampunk trilogy. Recommended. While The Damnation Affair is nominally set in the same universe, it’s on another continent and features completely different characters.
Beast of WonderBeast of Wonder by Lilith Saintcrow. I have no idea what happened in this one. Just HUH?!

Reading Update
Hilda and the Hidden PeopleHilda and the Hidden People (Book 1) by Luke Pearson & Stephen Davis. It was an ok kids fantasy story about a blue-haired girl named Hilda who discovers there’s an awful lot of she wasn’t aware of right outside her own house. It felt a little flat to me – from perusing the other reviews, I wonder if I’d find the original graphic novel more appealing?

Linkity rushing by in a blur

Things are just crazy this week! I have to work during my usual linkity time, so I’m going to slap a couple of links down and call it good for the week. Hope all of you are well! 🙂

Reading Update
No Plot? No Problem!: A Low-Stress, High-Velocity Guide to Writing a Novel in 30 DaysNo Plot? No Problem! A Low-Stress, High-Velocity Guide to Writing a Novel in 30 Days by Chris Baty. This book was absolutely perfect for me to start reading a week or so before starting my very first NaNoWriMo – it had a great balance of reassurance, reality checks, and humor. I read each section of the book at the time recommended in the book and found that to be really helpful – it prepared me for each week without overwhelming me any more than I was already. And hey – I hit my 50k on 25 Nov 2018!
How to Be a Heroine: Or, What I’ve Learned from Reading Too Much by Samantha Ellis. Very good autobiographical look back at some of the author’s favorite heroines from when she was growing up – I really liked how she explained what each heroine had meant to her as a kid and what she saw now, upon rereading.
