Reading Update
The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing by Marie Kondo. I read the first several chapters, then couldn’t continue because the writing was so repetitive. Plus there doesn’t seem to be anything in the book that you couldn’t learn simply by reading all the chapter subheadings via “Look Inside!” on Amazon. And if you do that, you avoid all the repetition!


Mayhem – stoned on socks?! Possibly even drooling…

Reading Update
Mario Lemieux: The Final Period by Mario Lemieux & Tom McMillan. Interesting, coffee table style autobiography of Le Magnifique that was heavy on the photos, light on text. I was perfectly ok with that. Of course, after this was published in 1997, Lemieux made another comeback, so this was actually not quite his final period.

Reading Update
Under the Skin (Ritual Crime Unit #1) by EE Richardson. Ok shortish paranormal thriller about a 50-something British detective inspector whose people are trying to track down someone misusing ritual magic to make shapeshifters. Throughout the story, I was distracted by the point of view character always being referred to by her last name, yet her coworkers were referred to by their first names. It was just enough for me to feel distanced from the story.
Midnight Blue-Light Special (InCryptid #2) by Seanan McGuire. I only read a few chapters, then set it aside to come back to and never bothered.


Behold the majestic short-tailed house panther in his native habitat! :)

In which I went to a third grade choir concert instead of putting much effort into linkity

Reading Update
Hounded (The Iron Druid Chronicles #1) by Kevin Hearne. Ok urban fantasy about Atticus O’Sullivan, a 2000 year old druid running an apothecary in Phoenix and hiding from an old enemy. I found Atticus to be kind of annoying, actually…
Discount Armageddon (InCryptid #1) by Seanan McGuire. Ok paranormal romance about a cryptozoologist living in New York City, trying to launch a ballroom dancing career, prove to her West Coast family she can live on her own, and help out the city’s cryptid/monster population. This had a couple of particularly amusing bits (the mice!), but I didn’t quite gel with the narrator.

Reading Update
Foxglove Summer (The Rivers of London #5) by Ben Aaronovitch. Good continuation of this urban fantasy series, which finds Peter and Beverly Brook looking for missing children in pastoral rural England. Not rated “very good” due to an abrupt ending and some inadequately resolved questions.


“…zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz…” -Chaos
