Odds 'n ends over the week about books and reading that caught my eye. You've probably seen some/most/all of them, but just in case:

  • Crooked by Austin Grossman -- Lovecraftian Nixon? I'm not sure this is my thing, but I'll probably give it a shot.
  • Half a War by Joe Abercrombie -- The Shattered Sea concludes. Still meaning to read the first volume of this series; and I guess volume two, too.

Lastly, I'd like to say hi and welcome to Themis-Athena's Garden of Books, Grimlock ♥ Deadpool, Paul Read or Dead, Constantly Moving the Bookmark (which might be my favorite blog name in weeks), The Primroses Were Over, Book Cupidity, and Jessica's Book Thoughts for following the booklikes version of blog this week - quite the bumper crop, actually.
