Today my copy of The Near Witch came in that I won from #WyrdAndWonder giveaway in May. It is a gorgeous book. I'm looking forward to reading it. Thanks @imyril 🐉

I made a list of 22 books for #WyrdandWonder and was bet that I couldn't strike them all off the list by the end of May. It was agreed that May doesn't end properly until I sleep after midnight on the 31st, and that for the sake of sense that 4am was the cutoff.

I have done it!

Middlegame was the last book. Tricksy timeline, lots of fascinating stuff, still need to digest it.

Finished my reread and am ready for the second book! Except I am totally not, because this book destroys me. Gaaaaah.

I can only hope that in the second book we get to see some revenge.

shanaqui @Squidapus And the second book starts up right where it left off! I do hope we see some payoff in The Monster... 3mo

Reread this today in one joyful splurge. I can't believe I didn't like it much the first time I read it. I really love Isabella and her deranged practicality -- and this time I especially appreciated her asides about how good science is done.

Can't wait for the new book in this world, coming out on my birthday!

Rereading this, and even though it's a reread and I know what's going to happen, I nearly missed a meeting reading “just a few pages“ and getting sucked in... #WyrdandWonder

Light and mostly fluffy and wish fulfillment-y. Though it's called The Afterward, there's a lot of "before" as well. I enjoyed it, but it's a cream puff rather than a meal. #WyrdandWonder

Hmmm. I don't think I'm that interested in the sequel to this. It was predictable, and I didn't admire Helen's choices. Nor does the end feel like she has really made a choice; only necessity has forced her to take this way.

There is so much more I want to know about this world, and it's a little info dumpy, but mostly I still enjoyed it very much. The tentative friendship/relationship that evolves between Con and Sunshine is so well done, and Con's vampirism is never romanticised -- he's still scary and unsettling, even as his sense of honour becomes clear.
