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! 🙂

Ignoring the snowy forecast didn’t help, discovered linkity

Just book reviewettes and a cat picture today – tired! Lots of reading too late this week! 🙂

Reading Update
An Artificial Night (October Daye #3)An Artificial Night, Late Eclipses (October Daye #4)Late Eclipses, One Salt Sea (October Daye, #5)One Salt Sea, and Ashes of Honor (October Daye, #6)Ashes of Honor (October Daye 3-6) by Seanan McGuire. Really enjoying this urban fantasy series about changeling Sir Toby Daye, who happens to be a private investigator with a penchant for getting seriously injured.
Midnight Blue-Light Special (InCryptid, #2)Midnight Blue-Light Special, Half-Off Ragnarok (InCryptid, #3)Half-Off Ragnarok, and Pocket Apocalypse (InCryptid, #4)Pocket Apocalypse (InCryptid 2-4) by Seanan McGuire. Good continuation of this series about a family who works to keep the magical beings and creatures of the world safe – including safe from an organization that wants to wipe all of them out.
Men at Arms: A Novel of DiscworldMen at Arms (Discworld #15) by Terry Pratchett. This was my in-depth introduction to the Night Watch. Love!

Reading Update
Sixty-One Nails (Courts of the Feyre, #1)Sixty-One Nails (Courts of the Feyre #1) by Mike Shevdon. “The smarter, faster brother to Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere has arrived.” ??? LOLOLOL. Sorry, but no. It was an ok urban fantasy. I might read the rest of the series. I might not.
The Shepherd's Crown (Discworld, #41; Tiffany Aching, #5)The Shepherd’s Crown (Tiffany Aching #5) by Terry Pratchett. I’m not crying, you’re crying. I didn’t realize when I started reading this, the 5th Tiffany Aching Discworld book, that it was the very last Discworld book and indeed, the book Terry Pratchett was working on when he died.
The Color of Magic (Discworld, #1)The Color of Magic (Discworld #1) by Terry Pratchett. Good introduction to and start of the Discworld series. I loved the Luggage!
The Last Adventure of Constance VerityThe Last Adventure of Constance Verity (Constance Verity #1) by A Lee Martinez. I found it unreadable and only made it a few chapters in.
A Local Habitation (October Daye, #2)A Local Habitation (October Daye #2) by Seanan McGuire.

Reading Update
Rosemary and Rue (October Daye, #1)Rosemary and Rue (October Daye #1) by Seanan McGuire. Quite promising start to this series about a half Fae private investigator who’s involuntarily back into the investigation game after a 14 year…hiatus. (Apparently there’s an October Daye fanfic that Seanan McGuire has happily read.)
Hell Bent (Broken Magic, #1)Hell Bent and Stone Cold (Broken Magic, #2)Stone Cold (Broken Magic 1-2) by Devon Monk. Good spinoff pair of books about a formerly magic rich world nearly bereft of magic, except for a few people who are paired in Soul Complements.
Summoned (Redemption's Heir, #1)Summoned (Redemption’s Heir #1) by Anne M. Pillsworth. Very creepy young adult book about a teen boy who responds to an impossible ad in an old book and falls into the Cthulhu Mythos. Be warned that this gets off to a rather slow and somewhat plodding start, but boy does it pick it up speed as it goes!
