Hyperbole and a Half: Unfortunate Situations, Flawed Coping Mechanisms, Mayhem, and Other Things That Happened by Allie Brosh. Very good collection of Brosh’s clever, insightful, and sometimes poignant comics. I was disappointed that the collection didn’t contain the brilliant “alot” comic, but perhaps there will be a less autobiographical collection available in the future.

A Casual Weekend Thing by AJ Thomas. ebook. Good m/m romantic suspense about a San Diego cop who’s on injured reserve when he has to go to Montana to deal with his estranged brother’s death. The characters were enjoyably complex and nearly made up for a few, relatively minor, rough spots in the plot and writing.

Hockey fics. Of course. :)

One Coffee With (Sigrid Harald #1) by Margaret Maron. I can’t figure out why I liked this mystery so much the first time I read it roughly 10 years ago. It has not aged well.

Plus hockey fics. Of course. :)

  • On Saturday, the movers (Tyler and Tyler) moved the bulk of my worldly goods from my old third-floor condo (no elevator) to my new condo 6.5 blocks away… on the same street.
  • Hey, I like my neighborhood! :)
  • And I am soooooo glad I hired movers (a first for me) – it was worth every penny.
  • But oh, I forgot how time consuming it is to unpack and find a place for everything…
  • Need to buy more shelf lining paper – have so far gone through around 55 feet of the 18″ wide stuff and I am not done.

Reading Update
Undone Deeds (Connor Grey #6) by Mark del Franco. This is a book that seemed to be trying too hard and simultaneously not trying hard enough, as the first half was slow and the second half was hella fast. Refreshing your memory of Celtic mythology before you read it wouldn’t be amiss.

Reading Update (I know, I’m as shocked about this as you are)
Unshapely Things (Connor Grey #1) by Mark Del Franco. reread. I originally read this in February 2008. Upon rereading, I definitely appreciated some of the more “old school” urban fantasy elements (harking back to Charles de Lint, Emma Bull, Terri Windling, Tanya Huff, etc), such as the involvement of the Fae and the city/urban environment seeming to almost be a character itself. In this tale of druid who’s lost his powers and helps out the Boston Police Department as best he can, the urban fantasy elements pair interestingly with a first-person noir detective narrative (as with the Dresden Files). On with my reread of the next two books, which is as far as I made it before running out of steam with the genre last time.
Unquiet Dreams (Connor Grey #2) by Mark Del Franco. reread. Very good urban fantasy in which Connor encounters trolls and dwarves and tree spirits, oh my!
Unfallen Dead (Connor Grey #3) by Mark Del Franco. reread. Another good installment in the Connor Grey series. Like orannia, I didn’t think the romantic relationship added anything to the story.
