Maybe it was the holiday, maybe it was . . . who knows? I just didn't see that much for this post this week. But there are a couple of odds 'n ends about books and reading that did catch my eye. You've probably seen some/most/all of them, but just in case:


  • Marked by Benedict Jacka -- Man, you thought Alex Verus had it rough when he was suspected constantly by TPTB and only trusted to help when they had no choice? Well, now that he's one of TPTB (a minor P, but still) things are so much worse. Really digging this one, hope to post about it early next week.
  • Heroine’s Journey by Sarah Kuhn -- the third volume in this very strange, very charming, and frequently quirky Superhero series looks to continue the strange, charming and quirky ways.

Lastly, I'd like to say hi and extend a warm welcome to atozmom, and jendionne10 for following the blog this week.
