This Is How We Fly by Anna Mariano. Good YA fiction about a high school student just trying to survive the summer before senior year without her stepmom melting down at her and leaving again. Her best friend gets her into real-life quidditch.
The Poetry of Strangers: What I Learned Traveling America with a Typewriter by Brian Sonia-Wallace. I gave up on this about 1/4 of the way through it. I just didn’t care. Perhaps due to my 2020 mood? Not sure.
Dead Lies Dreaming (Tales of the New Management 1) by Charles Stross. Initially I was disgruntled about this being set in the Laundry Files world with a new set of characters. But then I got completely sucked in after a while, so… :shrugs:
Mark of the Demon, Blood of the Demon, Secrets of the Demon, andSins of the Demon (Kara Gillian 1-4) by Diana Rowland. Ok paranormal series about a police detective who secretly summons demons on the side. But then something goes awry…
The Fey and the Furious (Rivers of London 8) by Ben Aaronovitch. Ok addition to this comic book series.
Silent City, Forgotten City, and Unholy City (Claire Codella 1-3) by Carrie Smith. Pretty good series about an NYPD detective who’s just returned after 10 months of treatment for lymphoma. (Not sure there will be any more to this series.)
Stuff I’ve Been Feeling Lately by Alicia Cook. Good book of poetry with the first half of the book being the poems and the second half being the “remixes” (blackout versions of the poems).
*blep* -Chaos, derpily
