I stopped in at McDonald‘s for a free cappuccino and a chapter of JARAN. The book‘s great so far; immersive and well balanced between its wider science fictional setting and the pre-first-(official)-contact culture the protagonist finds herself in. I‘m excited to read on.

I won a muffin on Monopoly, too! Hurray!

Mongrels: A Novel | Stephen Graham Jones

"When....got back from her hunt, two big white birds in her hand, held upside down by the feet they used to have, she tasted it on the air, what happened, and dropped the birds, their wings opening on the way down."

This was one of those weird days when it was easiest to grab some poetry during my little scraps of reading time, but now I‘ve got the time and the headspace to sink into JARAN. I‘ve settled into my nook, ready to enjoy my lights while I read. (I put them up really early to brighten my spirits after the storm. Winter is hell for me and I‘m upset it started so early this year.)

Yes.
So excited to finally have this one in my queue! Also, if you haven‘t checked out #Librofm I suggest it! Same price as Audible per month, but part of the money goes to the local bookstore of your choice.

I started QUARTZ by Rabia Gale last night, but it failed the three-chapter test. Sadness.

This morning I went back to my spicy egg roots while I dove into the last book on my October Must-Reads list: JARAN by Kate Elliott. I‘ve got a good feeling about it so far, which I‘d be happier to report if I hadn‘t had the same initial reaction to QUARTZ. Still, I‘ve read and enjoyed Elliott before, so fingers crossed.

The Bone Key | Sarah Monette
post image
Pickpick

If you love vintage horror stories but you wish they included queer folks and women with agency, you‘ve gotta read this. Monette offers up ten unsettling tales set in early- to mid-20th century America, linked by a common protagonist and a brand of menace that blends supernatural terrors with real world anxieties. I‘m so glad I reread it.

xicanti Also of note: THE BONE KEY is very much an American collection, but the tagged book covers similar territory from a British perspective. They‘re good read-alikes: 2d
esurient Yum, adding the Charles book to my TBR. You've read the Jordan Hawk books, yes? They're a bit too romance-y for my tastes, but I had so wanted the ability to shove Booth and Whyborne into a room together until they became friends. 2d
xicanti @esurient I haven‘t read Hawk yet, but it‘s only a matter of time. 2d

#Thanksgiving weekend has been so busy I haven‘t had a chance to post but I hope to get caught up soon. We paid a visit to Centennial Books yesterday & I finally found the elusive 3rd book of SRD‘s “The Man Who” series... but of course this comes months after I gave up my search & ordered it online cuz I‘m lucky like that 😂 After lots of digging through the crowded #SFF shelves we left with a lovely little #BookHaul of 6 books! #UsedBooks

Come-read-with-me @TK-421 JEALOUS! Wasn‘t able to get there when I was home a couple of weeks ago. Happy Thanksgiving reading! 🇨🇦🤓🇨🇦 3d
