This Week's Reads

The Queen
by Siwoo Kim (website)
**I haven't actually finished a book since 11/29. Read some short stories but just having a hard time reading right now.

The Winter Long by Seanan McGuire
October Daye #8 (Goodreads)
**I'm mostly done with this one. Even though this is a favorite series this is my least favorite so far. I've found I don't actually like Toby and Tybalt together now that they've finally made it there. Something I can get past if the rest works itself out.

Half -Off Ragnarok by Seanan McGuire
InCryptid #3 (Goodreads)
**Trying some fave authors/series to get back into reading. It's been awhile since I read this series but really enjoy it. This one features a different member of the family at a zoo in Ohio.

Mycroft and Sherlock by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar & Anna Waterhouse  (Goodreads)
**Not sure why this is showing as a stand alone when it is a follow up to Mycroft. I'll admit to being skeptical based on the author when I read the first book but really enjoyed it. Looking forward to giving this one a go.

This Week's Reads

High Queen Margo - The Magicians
by Zarory (DeviantArt)

**I've been in a reading slump of late. Things that should only take a couple of days are taking at least a week, even when I'm enjoying the story.

The Paper Magician by Charlie N Holmberg
The Paper Magician #1 (Goodreads)
**The librarian said this was a cute series. So far, I'd agree with that statement. I really like the world and magic the author came up with. Not crazy about the main character but she's starting to grow on me.

Urban Allies edited by Joseph Nassise
10 Collaborative Stories (Goodreads)
**I love the idea of characters from favorite (different) series coming together in one story. The only pairing that I know both series is the Kelley Armstrong and Seanan McGuire. Others I only know one but hoping to maybe find some new reads from this.
