I stole this off Facebook. I’m sure it’s making the rounds on other social media platforms too. I have no idea who this is originally credited to, and I give credit to whoever that person/people is.

enjoy.

 

Because I feel like posting humor.

 

oh, what am I reading?

Death’s End by Cixin Liu – I’m about 3/4 of the way through.  We’re at Jupiter.  A whole ton of brilliant science and tech investment has happened.  love the ideas, I wish I cared about the characters. FYI – hardback is too heavy to read while laying in bed or in the tub.

And Machines Shall Surrender by Benjanun Sriduangkaew – LOVE IT.  great story, fascinating conversation about if awakened AI’s have any use for humans, and some insanely hot sex scenes. Also about 3/4 of the way through. Fucking LOVE the characters and everythign about this, can’t wait to read Sriduangkaew’s Mirrorstrike!

The Black Tides of Heaven by JY Yang – um, it’s OK?  Kinda cute how the one twin obviously has a crush on that hot guy, and their sibling is SUPER jealous.  English does a shitty job of singular “they”. nothing against using “them” as a pronoun, just English is a pretty shitty language sometimes.  I might end up DNFing this one.

 

 

What am I listening to?

Enjoying the Lexicon Valley podcast during my commute.   John McWarter is brilliant. And when he swears it is adorable.  I downloaded some other linguistics podcasts in the hopes that their hosts adorably swear too.

 

what am I cooking?

Making potato croquettes   and frittata   for dinner tonight,  home made gluten free pizza  tomorrow. Both will feature my husband’s home made sausage.  Yes, I entertain dinner guests. we only have 3 kitchen chairs and a tiny kitchen, so you may have to bring your own folding chair and we might eat in the living room.

 

my brain still isn’t interested in writing book reviews.  Am very interested in completely decluttering my apartment – giving tons of books away,  giving boxes of clothes and shoes to Good Will. The “stuff” just feels very heavy sometimes. Like an elephant on my chest.

some of the books reviewed here were free ARCs supplied by publishers/authors/other groups. Some of the books here I got from the library. the rest I *gasp!* actually paid for. I'll do my best to let you know what's what.
