This novella has been on my TBR list for a while and the ebook is only 99 cents today. Definitely snagging it! 😊

This series is exactly what my brain needs to relax these days.
Also the audiobooks are narrated by the wonderful Kathleen Kellgren.

Let's look at the bright side: this annoying cold might make it difficult to breathe, but at least I have the perfect excuse to spend the evening curled up in bed with a book. (Or two.) 😷📚🍵

OSChamberlain Sooo jealous! I hate the Miami heat and would kill for some cold right now. 8y

This was my first horror. I have honestly forgotten most of plot, but clearly remember the atmosphere, the feelings of danger and uneasy I got from reading it.🍂🍂

The Dispatcher | John Scalzi

Nice short mystery with an intriguing scifi premise (it is Scalzi, after all): what if almost every time you murder someone they don't stay dead, but wake up alive and in their homes?

P.S.: at the moment it's free on audible

BarbaraTheBibliophage Glad to have a review, since I just picked this up in Audible too. ❤️📚 8y
bandigiu @BarbaraTheBibliophage Look forward to hear what you think! 8y

Lightspeed Magazine, June 2015 (Queers Destroy Science Fiction Special Issue) | Seanan McGuire, Lightspeed Magazine, Chaz Brenchley, John Chu
post image
Pickpick

I backed the People of Color Destroy Science fiction Kickstarter by Lightspeed magazine and as a reward I got a lovely pile of back issues of Lightspeed, together with the Destroy series.📚❤️
This is a review of issue 57 (not on #litsy).

Really cool issue! I really enjoyed 'And you shall know her by the trail of dead' by Brooke Bolander, 'Red Planet' by Caroline M. Yoachim and Elizabeth Bear's novella.

The gorgeous art is by Julie Dillion.😍

moranadatter I backed it too. Have you read Nightmare Magazine for October yet? I'm planning to start that on Monday. 8y
bandigiu @kmdartist I'll be starting it tomorrow as well! Short stories are perfect for the daily commute😊 8y

Her Royal Spyness | Rhys Bowen

That was fun!
Cozy mystery set in 1930s London. The murderer was fairly easy to guess, but I still enjoyed it. The strength of the book was in the setting and the main character Georgie, aka Lady Victoria Georgiana Charlotte Eugenie.⭐️⭐️⭐️🔍👑

Agent of Change | Sharon Lee, Steve Miller

Fun, old school scifi adventure. Loved the Turtles and would like to read more about them. The only negative point for me was that the plot moved so fast, I barely had time to get to know the main characters. I will probably give the next one in the series a try.

Swordspoint | Ellen Kushner
Mehso-so

Did not like this one much. It's well written and I enjoyed the last quarter of it, however I have trouble caring for scheming, selfish characters and the lack of a plot for the majority of the book did not help. For me it would have worked better as a novella. 😕

I think this was my favourite read from August. Unexpected, since I'm not usually the biography type, but it touches on so many interest subjects: suffragette history, British colonialism, the history of India and more.
