Half a King | Joe Abercrombie

Pickpick

This might just be Squidapus' favorite Abercrombie book now. I could barely pull his tentacles off this tale of a fallen viking prince seeking revenge. This is Abercrombie's greyest book to date; none are all good or bad. He does an amazing job with keeping things grim without stepping into overbearing. Yarvi is a great character who is put into a horrible situation and has reactions you can understand even if it hurts seeing him harden himself.

Is anyone surprised Squidapus finished this over a plane flight? Following the fallout of the first book Jenny and Gary find that separating the humans and Bala isn't working out great. The amazing characters and ridiculous/creative situations are still a blast to read about; Jenny and Gary are still fantastic. At times the book ignores certain events/characters to tell a story setting up a sequel but the ending is completely worth a few stumbles.

Heads of Cerberus | Francis Stevens

Mehso-so

This was...okay. Maybe it's just a sign of the time it was written in but it was a very uneven and the three main characters flat caricatures. While being transported into a future where only the most exemplary of Virtues gets a name and the masses only have numbers it did have a great statement on the false belief in meritocracies. Squidapus however thought the characters never DID anything and just gaped or reacted, just listening to exposition.

Heads of Cerberus | Francis Stevens

Squidapus latched onto this at random but oh boy is he interested in it. Francis Stevens was the pen name of Gertrude Barrows Bennett, the first major female writer in the US of sci fi and fantasy and started the subgenre of dark fantasy (so says the back!). Three friends in 1918 go 200 years into the future and take part in deadly games that will determine the new ruler of this future dystopia. It'll be interesting to see what started a lot!

Clare-Dragonfly Wow! That sounds really cool! 2w
Squidapus @Clare-Dragonfly Oh yeah, we picked it up as soon as we read about it. It seems to be over if the earliest if not the earliest of Hunger Games/Battle Royale dystopian death games 2w

Reincarnation Blues | Michael Poore

Squidapus thought this was alright. There's a lot of good ideas in here and some quirky humor but the author never plays much with the idea of reincarnation. The middle section is bogged down by another great idea that is utterly ruined by some misogynistic garbage being the impetus for it all. And to top it off the book just kinda ends very flat with a disappointing reveal that arbitrarily happened. Squidapus dislikes wasted potential so much.

So. Squidapus is conflicted about this one. He read it very quick as a dimension hopping city that pulls pieces and immigrants from the worlds it visits to add to itself while ruled by magic aristocracy was deeply interesting. But it had two glaring issues; confusing back and forth pacing, and leaning too hard on a flawed protagonist to the point that it wasn't "she's a mess but I want her to win" but "omg she's such a piece of crap." Just 2 much

Now that that emotional journey is over, Squidapus wants to hit up some fun and fantastical books for a bit. I'm sure it'll just be like the five other books he read for mindless fun that were depressing as hell and emotionally devastating. Good thing he's a cephalopod and didn't understand our human emotions.

Sorry but Squidapus and I can't gush about this book enough. I was actually tearing up towards the end. My heart felt for Jo the eldest so badly and the sacrifices she had to make and things she had to do to make sure her sisters were safe and protected from their father and why she took them dancing. I won't spoil things but I loved the fairy tale ending, which could mean Disney or Grimm's. Squidapus says you'll have to read it to see which!

Wow. This book was incredible. Squidapus was drawn into it almost immediately by the direct and evocative language, the writing that allowed 12 sisters to all be recognizable individuals with so few words. A 1920s speakeasy reimagining of Twelve Dancing Princesses, with significantly less medieval misogyny (misogieval?). This book made even Squidapus' cold heart ache for these trapped and unwanted sisters. He cannot recommend this enough.

Squidapus @TobeyTheScavengerMonk Sisyphean is weird, even for Squidapus. It's essentially four novellas in the same universe only barely held together but the author also drew all the art and it's absolutely ridiculous and disturbing 3w

Squidapus is gonna take a little break from all the crazy fantasy and sci fi works he's been consuming lately and try out this retelling of an olde fairy tale about twelve sisters growing up in the roaring 20s. Who knows, maybe there's some magic lurking in it's pages?

What an incredible fascinating world! And Squidapus isn't just saying that cause it has psychic squid and taking crabs! A zombie wakes up on a ship sent out to hunt massive oceanic monstrosities and starts an undead revolution in the process. While the characters are strong and have their moments the real strength of this book is the world building; Squidapus needs to know more about the endless Ocean and the lost technology that created the world

Great book. Squidapus would probably have enjoyed it even more if he didn't pick it up due to loving Kraken's over the top prose since this is quite different than Mieville's usual style. Still, it played to the trappings of the noir genre and still executed a fascinating look at two cities existing coterminously. The mystery resolves in a great way considering The Breach constantly makes you wonder how fantastical the world of the book is.

Squidapus thought this book was pretty good. It's like there are two different books side by side in this, one about a man dealing with his magic/weird family and life and one about a startup anarchic Wifi Router business. The author has really strong feelings about Telecom. What hurts the book is that the ending SUUUUUCCCKKKEEEDDD. A reveal happens that nobody reacts to, he gets a relationship he didn't earn and an entire plot just didn't matter.

TobeyTheScavengerMonk This one felt more like a repository of the authors (admittedly interesting) ideas than it did a coherent story. 1mo
Squidapus @TobeyTheScavengerMonk Squidapus agrees. There were a number of sections that just weren't contiguous with anything else 1mo

Squidapus has found a nice balance of reading a new book and then a backlog book to keep things fresh and not to leave so many books unread while grabbing more. He's had this one a while and a story where the MCs dad is a mountain and Mom is a washing machine sounds like lighter fair. Then again, he thought that about Space Unicorn Blues and that shit was heavy yo.

Winter Tide | Ruthanna Emrys

A good book that takes the fear and isolation of Lovecraft's cold and uncaring universe and subverts it to what comfort we can find in each other in the face of all that. It does assume reader's knowledge of the mythos but then goes against those assumptions which can be jarring. Squidapus felt that the loss of terror or creepyness was a rough trade off but writing a book full of the people Lovecraft hated in his mythos was a nice middle finger.

A pretty darn good book about a zombie apocalypse with it's own take on what survival means and what humanity is willing to do for it. Melanie and Parks were the real stand out characters which made the ending sorta...bad? Squidapus thought throughout that the book steered away from Blockbuster Movie writing and had deep characterization which it then threw away at the end to make each character fulfill their zombie movie trope. Still worth a read

Clare-Dragonfly That‘s a great description! I hate zombie movies which I guess is why I gave this a worse rating. 2mo
Squidapus @Clare-Dragonfly Squidapus neither loves nor hates them but finds you can often predict a character's fate in movies/books like this because they rarely play away from the tropes. This book did a good job of it up until Melanie finds THOSE people and then it literally turned into a zombie movie mad lib. 2mo

Okay, so I can't overstate this enough; read this book! 450 characters was not nearly enough to describe how good this is. It's a story about whether people are capable of change through trauma or perspective. It has incredible diversity and representation (asexual Indian half-unicorn, handicapped Maori lesbian, trans Asian crime boss, bigoted white guy). It takes a silly premise, treats it 100% seriously AND IT WORKS. This book is an frickin ride

Stop Squidapus of you've heard this one before; a half-unicorn just out of prison whose horn powers FTL travel, a wheelchair-bound Maori woman who imprisoned him for two years, the man whose wife the Unicorn killed and ate and a trans bar owner who used to be an anthropologist have to travel on the unicorn's asteroid ship to reach a meeting that will determine the fate of humanity in 24 hours. A SHOCKINGLY good novel, surprisingly dark and heavy

Instead of reading a book he bought yesterday (...which keeps happening) Squidapus is gonna tap into his backlog and grab a book he grabbed a while back. A Maori shuttle captain teams up with a half unicorn who's horn powers faster than light travel. After such a serious book as Luminous Dead, a comedic, ridiculous adventure seems like the right choice!

Squidapus enjoyed this book a lot more when he realized it was less about cave monsters and more about two broken women unable to let go of their trauma, being broken at each other. Then the contradictory and downright idiotic decisions these characters make have a much more sensical context. It can still be frustrating tho as Gyre and Em pitch from relatable to infuriating paragraph to paragraph. The romantic insinuation made no sense however

Sea of Rust | C. Robert Cargill

An excellent book. Humans are dead and the robot apocalypse that killed them is trying to find meaning while hiding from the AIs that freed them. A surprisingly human tale with musings on what makes you a person, what defines us and the trauma that shapes us. Us being robots in this case. Also just a great spaghetti western-like post-ropacylypse adventure. A quite powerful ending...except it kept going. Squidapus really didn't need that epilogue.

Reggie I loved the Martin Luther King-Isaac the free robot story line. Thought that bit was so ingenious. Glad you liked it. 2mo
Squidapus @Reggie The resolution to that whole part was pretty crazy. The last part with Brittle sitting on the roof and the conversation revealing what she really felt was also ingenious 2mo

The Tiger's Daughter | K. Arsenault Rivera

Mehso-so

Squidapus is not a big romance fan. If it's a big part of a book it can't be as irritating as Tiger's Daughter makes it. One woman raised as a Divine Princess thinking she's perfect and never wrong (and never really is) and one woman who worships the other. Not healthy. The world/mythology/history of the book is actually really interesting (as is the plot) but 95% of the book POV being endless fawning over the amazing princess wears on you fast

Psyche! Out of nowhere Squidapus read The Devourers and holy crap it was incredible! The tale of a man in India who meets a stranger that envelops him in ancient tales of mythical werewolves. But it's so much more. Beyond a fascinating story with wonderful prose it also tackles themes of misogyny within Indian and the world at large and ideas of gender and sexuality. The characters are so full and developed, even the worst of them. Read this book!

TheLibrarian I bought this based off the cover a while ago. Apparently I need to move it up on my tbr pile 2mo
Squidapus @TheLibrarian Full trigger warning, this book contains rape (not super explicit but still heavily talked about) as well as graphic gore and sex, which I believe is handled and explored pretty fantastically, but can still be upsetting to read about. 2mo

Argh these books are so good.

Just like Dark Run Squidapus finished this in two days. The only downside is that Jia and Kudai still barely get any development or chapters from their perspective which was weird since the planet was part of their affiliated nation

Squidapus finished this in two days which should tell you how much he liked it! A space romp with a crew of ragtag misfits who try to get revenge after a job gone wrong. Sounds like one of a million novels with a similar plot but the writing and especially characters are so good. They're characterized incredibly well and aren't just a Joss Whedon quip machine. The cast is widely multicultural and the book contains some legit pulse pounding moments

TobeyTheScavengerMonk I have to be careful to not burn myself out on “Team of Quipping Misfits” books because they‘re swamping the market nowadays, but the pitches always sound so good. 3mo

What a fun magical heist novel! A thief immune to magic gets hired to steal a box that everyone wants but no one knows what it does! Squidapus loved the tone and humor of the novel as it always keeps things light in even the heaviest of situations. Occasionally the novel has "Joss Whedon" problem where the dialogue can become too clever and thus it stops being funny or cute. When it hits that right level tho it's hard to read it without smiling

Squidapus rode the line on whether this was Pick or So-so and decided it's issues didn't ruin a lot of the good the book did. Throughout you're left with an unsettling lack of surety if Marjorie is possessed or simply faking; it steadily ramps up in horror when you become more and more sure which it is. The two big negatives were the completely unnecessary blog posts that read like a dad trying to imitate his teen daughter's diary and the ending

Well, Squidapus sure blazed through this in 3 days. A very excellent sci fi novel with a unique universe and (confusing) technology system that really lets them get creative almost to the point of space magic. The hexarch's rigid calendar system is a great backdrop for an unsettling space empire where everyone has their place and every "caste" is defined entirely by their group. A little dense with nonsense terms to start which can be confusing.

Squidapus understands how people can love or hate this book; he liked it quite a lot. A lot of his issues were easily looked past due to the overwhelming dread this book evokes with each passing page. Like the best horror it is focused on it's characters, the secrets between them and the relationship that hides under the surface which horror distressingly unearths. The prose is downright poetic (towards the end distractingly so) and evocative.

Unfortunately, much like Paper Magician by Charlie Holmberg, this book has a fascinating world with a strong female character...whose entire storyline and much of the narrative is tied up in an awful romance. It's a quick read, and wonderful to see Native American representation both from an author and a characters and using the lore, but just can't escape a fairly standard plot. A good first effort but Squidapus wished it was a little better
