Reading Round-up: June 2021

June has been an absolute riot of activity, and I almost didn't get this post written. My brother got married, we're planning for our trip, we bought a car somehow??? The mechanics of buying the car are of course understood but the buying of the car was kind of a surprise. Anyway, there's a lot... Continue Reading →

Reading Round-up: May 2021

Back in early May I foolishly asserted that I wasn't sure I was going to have anything for a May round-up. And then I read some of my favorite books this year. Six of Crows/Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo Let's start with the big names. These two books are included in the novels used in... Continue Reading →

Reading Round-up: April 2021

April showers bring May flowers, and this month's Round-up has no theme to speak of! We've got horror. We've got regency romance. We've got cli-fi. We've got epic fantasy that was not, in my opinion, YA. I was kind of all over the place, so enjoy! Devolution by Max Brooks If you liked World War... Continue Reading →

Space Sweepers

I caught Space Sweepers at the end of February, a fun little Netflix movie perfect for fans of action-packed science fiction.

Reading Round-up: February 2021

December and January were kind of a lot, so I ended up forgetting to add a few lovely stories to my January list. You'll see them here. Of course, I also read some great stuff in early February, some of which even came out in February (gasp!). Books are such a comfort. Depart, Depart by... Continue Reading →

Reading Round-up: November edition

Happy Thanksgiving. If you, like me, have a virtual Thanksgiving this year then I wish you the best of luck with your wifi connection. In the meantime, here are the books I've been reading in order to get through my Covid-generated quarantine and general sense of weirdness this month. My Best Friend's Exorcism by Grady...

The eldritch horror of capitalism

Recently I've been listening to Old Gods of Appalachia, a Lovecraft-inspired horror podcast set in my mountains. It's been a lot of fun to listen to, not least because this story is situated within the deep history of Appalachia -- of labor unions, witching, and yes, the occasional spot of racism. It doesn't flinch from... Continue Reading →
