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!

Marked (Mindspace Investigations, #3)Marked and Vacant ( Mindspace Investigations Novel, #4)Vacant (Mindspace Investigations 3-4) by Alex Hughes. Good continuation of this series about a telepath and recovering addict who consults for the police and, under duress, the Telepath’s Guild. Unfortunately, I screwed up and read book #4 before book #3, so I spent much of book #4 thinking my memory had gotten REALLY bad when things that turned out to have happened in book #3 were mentioned…
I Shall Wear MidnightI Shall Wear Midnight (Tiffany Aching #4) by Terry Pratchett. Very good continuation of this series as teenage Tiffany works in the Chalk amid rising anti-witch sentiment.
Discount Armageddon (Incryptid, #1)Discount Armageddon (InCryptid #1) by Seanan McGuire. I liked it better upon rereading than I did when I read it four years ago!

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.
