Catherine House: A Novel | Elisabeth Thomas

Only about 50 pages in, but loving the vibe so far and feeling like I‘m about due to revisit Kat Howard‘s Roses & Rot.

Book of Night | Holly Black

Time to crack this one open!

The Sorcerer of the Wildeeps | Kai Ashante Wilson

Felt the burning need to cry my eyes out over something that isn‘t my own life, so back we go!

Hither Page | Cat Sebastian

God, I missed these two! Just finished The Missing Page (can‘t find it on Litsy yet) and was delighted to spend some quality time with Leo and James.

Hither Page | Cat Sebastian

Just finished (yet another!) reread, this time in preparation for The Missing Page!

Dracula and Dracula's Guest | Bram Stoker, David Rogers

Will 2022 be the year I finally make it through Dracula? Maybe! I seem to get a little further every time I pick it up.

The Last Sun | K. D. Edwards

I‘ve been meaning to read this for a year or so since it first popped up on my radar. Cracked it open last night and I am SOLD. So far it‘s everything I missed about early urban fantasy noir, but queer. Feels like coming home.

Tam Lin | Pamela Dean

Finished my Tam Lin reread, and now to find a nice book to balance it.

The Burning God | R. F. Kuang

Rin, what the FUCK?

I feel this quote best encapsulates the entire trilogy. (Which was wonderful and traumatic and frustrating and amazing.)

Not usually an audiobook fan, but I‘ve been curious about the GraphicAudio editions for a while and it‘s been ages since I spent any time with Hawk and Fisher. While the narration comes off a little cheesy at times (very retro audio drama) overall I really enjoyed the experience. I particularly liked how the actors playing our MCs infused tenderness between each other along with all the snark.

Beowulf: A New Translation | Maria Dahvana Headley
post image

So I‘m not usually one for audiobooks, but this was great. I loved the modern translation, and the narrator did an amazing job. It was the perfect thing to listen to while doing battle with a washing machine from 8pm to 7am the following morning, without sleep.

At the very southern tip of South America, where fields of ice meet mountains of salt, a finishing school for girls existed on a lone shelf of rock. #firstlinefridays @ShyBookOwl

Wylding Hall | Elizabeth Hand
Pickpick

This novella feels like someone crossed Daisy Jones & the Six with The Haunting of Hill House and sprinkled it with a bit of The Bloody Chamber.
So of course I read it in a single sitting.

The Unspoken Name | A. K. Larkwood

I haven‘t read much swords and sorcery stuff in a while (like a lot of genre fiction it can be hard to find the good stuff amidst all the blatant sexism, racism, and homophobia), but I‘m really enjoying this one.

My library has the complete series of The Lymond Chronicles on Overdrive. I think it's time to see what all the fuss is about.

Rereading to prepare for Emerald Blaze later this month and I am struck by how much I love Augustine (and what an asshole he is).

Catalina's anxiety is super relatable, though.

An elk mother, cornered, will slash with her hooves and tear with her mouth and even offer the hope of her own hamstrings, and if none of that works, she‘ll rise again years and years later, because it‘s never over, it‘s always just beginning again.

I'm really liking Kameron Hurley's writing (love her essays) but it's so emotionally hard to read I keep taking breaks for other stuff in the middle of this.

"Oh, my god, my stepbrother's right. I AM a hipster cliché."

quote
snapsnarlgrowl

If you came of age in the 1950s and ‘60s you were promised a future of world peace and flying cars, so I can understand being a little disappointed with what we‘ve ended up with. [...] I came of age reading science fiction after 1980. I was promised a cyberpunk dystopia ruled by corporations, complete with violent reality TV and authoritarian governments, and well—here we are.

Think I'll give this one a try:

"Willy, thy name is sexism." - Ophelia

Rose Daughter | Robin McKinley

One of the first of McKinley's books I picked up, and likely my favorite Beauty and the Beast novel.
