Linkity can’t come up with a title less lame than this

  • Still chugging along, even slightly ahead on my word count, for NaNoWriMo.
  • No linkity next week, November 23, due to the Thanksgiving holiday here in the US.
  • Not sure if there will be linkity on the 30th – it really depends on how NaNo is going at that point! 🙂

The Labyrinth Index (Laundry Files, #9)The Labyrinth Index (Laundry Files #9) by Charles Stross. Ack. These are so complex now that I almost need to reread the entire series when each new book comes out. Mental note to do that before the next one… This one was mainly from Mhari’s POV after the shocking developments of book 8 have had a chance to sink in a little bit.

Reading Update
The Merchant’s War (Merchant Princes #4) by Charles Stross. I think I’m going to use my status update from finishing this book as my review: “OMG, another cliffhanger. I have the next two ebooks on hand (bless you, library), but I have to sleep. And these are not short books. But the suspense! At least I know things have to be tied up by the end of the next two books, since that ends the series…
The Revolution Business (Merchant Princes #5) by Charles Stross. How can the intensity just continue to build like this?! Anyway, yeah, another cliffhanger, so make sure you have the next book on hand.
The Trade of Queens (Merchant Princes #6) by Charles Stross. This was a white-knuckle read right until the very end! Whew. It feels like this series was heavily influenced by the way the world turned after 9/11… Also, willful ignorance and refusing to change/adapt can be extraordinarily dangerous to those around you…

Linkity was not emotionally prepared for a foot of snow

Also, very dawdly during my linkity time, so you get a hot mess o’ linkity again. 😀

Reading Update
Picture This: The Near-Sighted Monkey Book by Lynda Barry. Another good illustrated book from Lynda Barry – this one focuses mostly on drawing.
The Bloodline Feud (The Merchant Princes #1-#2) by Charles Stross. I kept tripping over the language a bit at the beginning (it seemed overly descriptive), but I got completely sucked into the story anyway and stayed up too late to finish it. So!
The Clan Corporate (The Merchant Princes #3) by Charles Stross. Make sure you have the next book on hand, because this ends on a really evil cliffhanger!

Linkity has had better weeks.

Still waiting to hear whether it’s totaled or not (the rear axle is bent and the frame is not longer in its original shape). I am fine! Which is great! (I was stopped at a red light and was hit at speed by someone who apparently didn’t notice all the stopped cars, only swerving into the ditch at the last moment.) But dammit, I really like(d) this car.

The Delirium Brief (Laundry Files #8) by Charles Stross. Holy crap. O.O This one was a rollercoaster ride. Very intense. And now I have to go see when book #9 is going to come out…

No Excuses Watercolor: Painting Techniques for Sketching and Journaling by Gina Rossi Armfield. I really can’t recommend this – glad I got it from the library. Definitely not worth $12/Kindle or $17/paperback from Amazon. This felt more like a series of vaguely connected blog posts than a book.
The Fuller Memorandum (Laundry Files #3), Overtime (Laundry Files #3.5), The Apocalypse Codex (Laundry Files #4), The Rhesus Factor (Laundry Files #5), The Annihilation Score (Laundry Files #6), and The Nightmare Stacks (Laundry Files #7) by Charles Stross. Since this was a series binge reread, I’m just linking to the series on Goodreads, from which you can find my reviews.
Exploring Watercolor: Creative Exercises and Techniques for Watercolor and Mixed Media by Elizabeth Groves. Very good introduction to watercolor – it has a bunch of techniques and ideas that I’m looking forward to trying!
