Gonna sit outside and finish this book while I drink tea. I managed to get today‘s run in (at 4:00 instead of first thing), but I ain‘t good for much else tonight. Fingers crossed whatever bug I picked up has about run its course.

Jackie Lau romcom + more excellent Fiasco gelato. (I‘ve had it for a few days, which is why there‘s so little left. It‘s DELICIOUS, people.)

Now I‘ve read 1.5 of her books, I think I can say Lau‘s gonna be one of those romance writers where I like the characters as individuals but I never invest in them as a couple. Oh well. Natalie and her family are interesting enough that I‘ll still finish this.

Friyay!: Blank Line Journal | Hunter Leilani Elliott

I think I can squeeze #friyayintro in before I fall asleep.

1. I got some good writing done, I read two 5-star books in a row, and I fell for a delightful culinary drama from Taiwan.

2. Sleep a lot and read stuff and watch the abovementioned drama. Casey‘s got puppy school, too.

Today was UNPLEASANT, as predicted. It took me until about 11:30 to fully wake up, and I felt crappy alllllll day. Now I‘m headed to bed at 9:00.

Still, I managed to revise stuff and hit my FitBit goals and do some #audiocooking come suppertime. Spicy sausage & tofu scramble with greens makes for a great standby, especially since my Superstore had sausages for super cheap today. I got 28 for $2.70. Should keep me going for a while!

It‘s one of those mornings where I CANNOT wake up, so I had a second cup of coffee in my mug that lies. No results so far. Hopefully the caffeine‘s just biding its time.

I want to say a few things about this anthology, but I can‘t make the words go in the right order. It‘s good. Way better than I expected, given [a probably simple idea I can‘t make come out in a coherent fashion. Today‘s gonna be awful. Maybe I have a cold?].

Sometimes I make fancy meals and sometimes I just plunk a bunch of my favourite Japanese rice seasoning on basmati.

Then I eat it while I read engaging musical nonfiction. This book is doing it for me in a big, big way, y‘all. Warner‘s take on Celine Dion, Shania Twain, Alanis Morissette, and Sarah McLachlan has got me thinking critically about how I react to music now vs when I was a teenager.

I don‘t think I‘ve ever done a #thursdaysurvey before.

2. I dunno. I‘m excited for Annabeth Albert‘s next Alaska book, but that‘s out in late spring, not in summer.

3. Cherries!!!!! I also like to drink Tsingtao when it gets really hot.

4. The air temperature hit 42.2 in 1936, while humidex climbed to 48 in 2007. That was a durned good summer.

5. Y‘all know tagging people makes me anxious.

DAMN, y‘all. I had the time of my frickin life reading about Kingsley having the time of HIS frickin life infiltrating a sex cult. Young King is hilarious and sweet and super willing to sleep with anyone (except Nazis. Dude‘s got standards.) The result is the most delightful piece of erotica ever.

Things do take a more melancholy turn in the back half, but everything fits beautifully—with LOTS of meat for established Original Sinners fans. ❤️❤️❤️

xicanti And for once, I‘m not gonna tell you you should read all Reisz‘s other books before this one. You SHOULD read them if you like good BDSM, but you can absolutely start with THE CHATEAU if female-dominated 80s French sex cults are your jam. Have at it, friends! 3d

I always struggle to review the books that hit me just right, which is why I‘ve sat on REVERB for days. I can‘t stop thinking about it as an affecting romance between two cool people, as a glorious smorgasbord of MOMENTS, and as the culmination of an amazing series about a found family of queer rock stars.

It‘s that last one I keep coming back to. REVERB is definitely Mish and David‘s story, but their romance is all tied up with their feelings ⬇️

xicanti for the band. Mish is a former loner who‘s now totally committed to the guys she shares her career with. David‘s a current loner who struggles with how badly he wants to join them all. My heart ached and rejoiced as I watched them work past their issues as a couple and as members of a close-knit group.

I‘m also really glad I paused to read COUNTERPOINT instead of diving into REVERB straight after SYNCOPATION, as I planned to. Zabo builds ⬇️
(edited) 3d
xicanti the band‘s career, and their familial relationship, book by book. The backstory makes Mish and David‘s romance so much richer. You don‘t want to miss out on it.

Zabo‘s said they‘re done with Twisted Wishes for now, but I dearly hope they come back to the band someday. I mean, Marcella‘s still single and I‘d LOVE LOVE LOVE to see her connect with an awesome person while the central characters from the first three books cheer her on.

Yet another breakfast reading session that made me wish I could keep at it allllllll day. THE CHATEAU is simply the most delightful piece of erotica I‘ve ever read. I‘ve got 40% left and there‘s a good chance I‘ll finish it in one sitting once I‘m free to do so.

I stopped on top of this hill to read two more chapters of WE OUGHTA KNOW, watch the prairie dogs, and listen to some music. The last few tracks of Led Zeppelin IV started me off, followed by Taylor Swift‘s 1989.

This book is great: scholarly, personal, and highly readable, with lots of responses I can interrogate and argue with. It‘s been a while since I read nonfiction I could approach this way, and I didn‘t realize how much I missed it.

I have INTENSE VICTORIA DAY PLANS. First I‘m gonna finish REVERB, which I couldn‘t do last night because I got sucked into a Taiwanese culinary dramedy. Once that‘s done, I‘ll tackle more SILVER SPOON.

I know it looks like I spent the whole day eating things while I read REVERB, but alas, this was not the case. I passed the 50% mark during my massive supper, though, and I‘m so in love with the book that I‘m pretty sure I‘ll be reading it until 2am.

Tonight‘s beer was Red Roof Lager, which I figured was mostly a gimmick for Salisbury House, our big MB breakfast/burger joint. It‘s actually delicious; citrusy and drinkable, especially with curry.

And here‘s a rare selfie to show off today‘s #audiodying efforts. It‘s nice and blue again, but the dye didn‘t take well on the ends—it never does with my hair, in defiance of all convention—and there‘s one troublesome patch on the back of my head that doesn‘t like to absorb colour either. Luckily it won‘t really show when I wear my hair up, which I‘ve been doing most days in a last-ditch effort to keep the ends from breaking so often.

I finally started my MISTBORN reread while I applied my hair dye. None of the selfies I attempted were remotely acceptable, so here‘s a photo of the dye box in lieu of. I love how it turned out last time, but it faded quicker than I wanted it to. I‘m hoping it‘ll have better staying power this time, over the fade-out instead of the red/blonde it went atop before. #audiodying

Seekingtardis This is the color i use too!! And within 4 weeks it was completely gone and the dusty blonde i had is mostly all back now. I love the color just don‘t love the speed of the fade! 6d

I decided to sample some queer books this weekend, and I‘ve finally got a winner! The first scene of GAME CHANGER by Rachel Reid was so cute I didn‘t hesitate to shell out $2 for the full thing.

The others I tried were AMERICAN DREAMER by Adriana Herrera, which started with WAY too much, “As you know, Bob...” for me, and NEW INK ON LIFE by Jennie Davids, which was my tattoo shop nightmare on the page and thus too anxiety-inducing.

Burning Bright | Melissa Scott

Pickpick

Y‘all, I‘d be shocked to learn Ellen Kushner‘s SWORDSPOINT wasn‘t an influence on BURNING BRIGHT. The parallels leap out throughout this twisty-turny tale of queer folks roped into a political scheme-fest, but BURNING BRIGHT is also very much its own thing. Scott concerns herself with gaming and info tech; with what art might look like in the distant future; with change when stasis can no longer satisfy. It‘s a slow read but a damned good one. ⬇️

xicanti I think gamers are liable to enjoy it even more than I did, too, for its 1993 projection of how RPGs and computer gaming feed on one another. I got a kick out of the trappings, but I know I‘m missing a lot of cool references thanks to my non-gamer status.

(Also, the awful cover makes a bit more sense once you know the lady dressed as Glinda is actually an enormous puppet.)

It‘s #bookandbeer time! I started BURNING BRIGHT about six months ago and drifted away from it for no good reason. Now I‘m gonna see if I can sink back in.

The beer is The Last Strawberry by Fuggles & Warlock Craftworks out of Richmond, BC, and it‘s quite tasty despite its headless state. It‘s like a fruit beer and a regular beer had a delicious baby; ie, it tastes a bit like kombucha but not a LOT like kombucha, as your average fruit beer does.

xicanti Here‘s a fruit beer/kombucha story! In December I was at a thing where we sampled a bunch of beers, and the host pulled out this watermelon sour someone gave him. Everyone else started screaming when they sipped their glasses because they were so grossed out. I tried mine, declared it tasted just like kombucha, and got the whole bottle to myself. Also! Fun fact: fruit beers COST LESS than kombucha. Yeah. For real. 1w

Nalini Singh‘s latest is all about what makes a marriage work. The leads both believe in their connection, but they‘re under pressure from overinvolved family members and surrounded by examples of torrid romances that soured after the I Do‘s. I loved watching them figure out what they needed to do to carve out their personal HEA, and you‘d better believe I teared up at the end. Singh isn‘t always a winner for me, but she nails it with this one.

Days by Moonlight | Andre Alexis

Pickpick

For nearly forty pages, I thought DAYS BY MOONLIGHT was the sort of FMALF I simply can‘t connect with: distanced, abstract, dispassionate. Then, all at once, it opened itself up to me and I fell in love on every level with this delightful, horrifying dive into the riches (and poverties) of the human spirit.

The LAYERS here, y‘all! Alexis delves into complex relationships, between individuals and between concepts. He considers key issues like ⬇️

xicanti class divisions and racism from the most absurd angle possible, thereby asking us to consider them in new lights. He‘s deeply concerned with Canada as an ecosystem, physically and socially. The mystical permeates everything, always with the caveat that it looks different to different people. The more I think about it all, the more I like it. (edited) 2w
