Advanced Review: Automatic Reload by Ferrett Steinmetz
Mini Review: I really wanted to love this, but in the end I hated it. A cyberpunk about a guy who has mechanically altered his body for combat having PTSD falling in love with a woman with an extreme anxiety disorder who has been genetically engineered against her will.
Advanced Review: Driftwood by Marie Brennan
Mini Review: I loved this every bit as much as I thought I would. Which was a lot. Follows a set of stories featuring a man who has lived longer than anyone else and no one knows well but everyone knows of in a place where nothing lives for long.
New Release: Random Sh*t Flying Through the Air by Jackson Ford
Mini Review: Was actually disappointed in this follow up to The Girl Who Could Move Sh*t With Her Mind. High intensity, but I wasn’t really happy with the direction the series is going.
New Release: Alpha Night by Nalini Singh
Mini Review: I’ve read so many books by Nalini Singh and this may be my least favourite. I disliked almost everything about this one, and what I did like end up ruined.
Mini Review: I love this series. Featuring an Innkeeper in charge of a magical inn where aliens just happen to stay. This series has a little bit of everything. And it is cute.
Series: The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher: Brief Cases
Mini Review: The Dresden Files short stories are mostly skippable, unless you want to read them. Then they’re fine.
Series: Teixcalaan by Arkady Martine: A Memory Called Empire
Mini Review: This is essentially published Foreigner fanficton and I love it. Very political, very main character doing the best they can. There is a lot of elements and an expansive world hanging just off to the side. Really enjoyed.
Webtoon: #muted by kandismon
Mini Review: I’m obsessed, and I have read this at least two dozen times since I first read it. A romance featuring two guys, a librarian and someone with a bit more troubles going on. Adorable. Utterly adorable.
Webtoon: Freaking Romance by Snailords
Mini Review: An absolutely hilarious and amazing scifi hiding in what appears to be a standard paranormal romance.
