Just Like Home
Dovetailed nicely with my re-watching of Stoker. This grabbed onto my eyes and wouldn’t let go.
Fun to read the inspiration for the series.
A Half Built Garden
Luckily I talked to a friend partway through about this and found she also thought it was annoying.
Feels like the precursor to so much post-apocalyptic fiction, but with a wry grin.
Pretty cool way of tackling eternal life, mixed with the dread of Edge of Tomorrow.
Fun to read while watching the show.
A lot different than I expected but a fun thriller throughout.
After two of Lecht’s books, I think her style is a little too on the nose for me, but I broadly enjoy it. When you’re including an interesting set of genders and sexualities it’s a delicate dance that in this case feels a little too box-check-y.
The End We Start From
A poignant story about motherhood and survival. Kind of a one-two punch with the last book.
How High We Go in the Dark
I loved this meditation on loss and love. It captured a lot of the complex feelings I’ve had over the years about family and belonging.
An original and exciting take on cloning and space travel.
More of a novella, but a fun one. Some echoes of Becky Chambers, but with a core concept similar to Hanna. Excited to read the rest of the series.
Really cool space horror that nicely dovetailed with playing Dead Space. Spooky and hard to put down.
An Unkindness of Magicians
Similar thematically and story-wise to a lot of fantasy I read these days, but compelling characters and hilariously brutal and brief spell battles mark it out.
The objects are good.
Fun but a little too silly.
Something New Under the Sun
A friend asked if this was Solarpunk, and I’m not sure, but I said yes.
A nice take it and turn it of Lovecraft.
Re-reading for a Discord group. Not my favorite of his trilogies, but still fun.
