“They look like they're dancing on knives“ -- this figure skating fan approves of this description.

This wasn't my fave of the series, but if you read books 1-4 and enjoyed book 4/epilogue, you'll probably want to continue onto this one (book 5). Note, this one is from Laura's POV, not Cassandra's.

The 1st of the Wormwood trilogy, this one took a little while to endear itself to me but when it did it made the sometimes frustrating & confusing work of understanding the timeline totally worthwhile. The premise is original & imaginative & the writing is utterly engrossing. The MC is a dislikeable anti-hero & the female characters of Femi, Nike, Oyin-Da & Aminat are strong, have agency & steal the show. The plot is ... cont. in comments ⬇️⬇️⬇️

readingjedi ...intelligent, complex & provides many a satisfying whoa WTF moments. There's also a pretty sly dig at Trump! I will definitely be checking out the rest of this trilogy. With thanks to Netgalley for this book. 3d
readingjedi Have to add that as impressed as I am by this book, I have a slight issue with the MCs constant erections, ejaculations & copulations. It's all a bit icky .... 🤢🤢🤢 3d
suzisteffen @readingjedi yes to literally everything you said! 3d

The first in a quartet was really good. A friend lent me the omnibus of the series, and it was better than expected. It‘s very dense & blends fantasy with sci-fi in interesting ways.

Well, I got the time wrong for tonight. I need to be there an hour later than I thought, so I could‘ve kept on painting. I might even have finished today.

Damn.

I‘m gonna use this extra, wasted hour to feel bad about that, and to do bookish stuff like show y‘all the library haul I forgot to share yesterday. It‘s been a while since I borrowed this much prose all at once.

BookFrog What are you painting? 4d
xicanti @BookFrog nothing exciting. Just my bedroom. 4d
BookFrog Painting is always exciting to me! I just finished painting my mom‘s living room and kitchen. What color are you painting it? 4d
xicanti @BookFrog it‘s a grey that I THINK is called Steel Tin Whistle. I‘m putting it over a similar colour called Moonlight that isn‘t available anymore. There are some pictures of my progress on my page! 4d

Reading Greg Benford's Deeper Than the Darkness. Started off kind of slow but now it's starting to get interesting. #sciencefiction #scifi

Oof. I wish I could scrounge more reading time today, but I‘ve been laid up since Monday with a nasty cold on top of a womb attack and my to-do list is both long and involved.

THE HIDDEN CITY is now officially my in-between book. I‘ll read another 100 pages or so every time I finish something else, unless I fall super in love and decide to read it straight through. That‘s unlikely; much as I enjoy West, I do find her easier in small doses.

Started this one this am. Premise is some no name rock band suddenly explodes on the scene and their music has the power to enrapture and control people in different ways. It‘s a short novella but pretty good. Takes the perspective of a music blogger who follows the band around and witnesses first hand what is happening.
