What I've finished reading
I finished Kaleidoscope, which I loved to death, and which I'll review properly soon, I promise.
Lock-In, by John Scalzi, which I really loved.
Redshirts, also by John Scalzi (whose autograph I got at SupaNova back in early April.) Really enjoyed this one, although I agree with what he said on the Coode St Podcast recently about adjusting his writing style for audiooboks. I listened to a good proportion of Redshirts in Audiobook, and the dialogue tags were driving me nuts.
Ms Marvel, vol 1. Love, love, love it. Volume 2 is now out, and I have to balance having it NOW vs getting the hard copy version when I'm in Sydney next.
What I'm currently reading
Cranky Ladies of History - I'm trying to read one story a night, but last night M vetoed the Elizabeth Bathory story on the basis of potential triggers, and the one after that was too long and complex to get through.
Cicely's King Richard - I'm not entirely sure I'll get through the whole thing. The author is so VERY Richardian, and on top of that, anti-Woodville in an unavoidable way, and it's driving me nuts.
The Bees, by Laline Paul. It was on the Locus longlist for 2014, which speaks to its potential. It's still reminding me very much. I'll get back to it soon.
What I'll be reading next
Dick Winters: The Band of Brothers' Major has just arrived for me through the library holds system.
A Trifle Dead by Livia Day, first in the Cafe La Femme series, is also waiting for me, on my Kindle app.
