Reading progress update: I've read 134 out of 176 pages.
Death Note: Another Note - NisiOisiN

More odd names, as Misora and Ryuzaki try to figure out whether the killer's fourth victim is going to be a woman named Blackberry Brown or a man in the same building named Blues-harp Babysplit.

 

This whole book makes me think of one of those adventure games where you solve really weird puzzles by doing things like combining a rock, a doll, a coat hanger, and some duct tape in order to figure out that there's an important clue on a particular spot on the floorboards (not actually an example from the book, although they did just somehow figure out that the killer

turned an entire room into a picture of a clock, with the victim as the clock hands

(spoiler show)

). I take issue with the way Misora and Ryuzaki decided on the date when the next murder would occur.

Reading progress and fishy story
Thyme of Death - Susan Wittig Albert

I just can´t get into this.  I guess it just isn´t my cup of tea.  I need something more real and less silly.  I´m almost finished and I just don´t care who did it.  They could all die and I´ll be totally okay with that.

 

On a more interesting note.... one of my Emerald Barbs (fish) found a little rubber band and is running around with it in his mouth while the other members of the clan (there are 6 total) chase him to try to get it from him.  Sometimes he drops it and another one gets it before it hits the ground but the bully always ends up getting it back.  I wish I could get a good picture or video but it is dark and the pictures are coming out blurry with bad light reflections and stuff.  If they do it again during the day time I´ll try to get a video.  That usually works better than a picture through the glass.

Lecretia's Choice: A Story of Love, Deat... Lecretia's Choice: A Story of Love, Death and the Law - Matt Vickers

Books such as this are neither good, nor bad, just varying degrees of horribleness. This is Matt's account of his beautiful wife, Lecretia's battle against a virulent brain tumour plus a fight with the New Zealand government to change the law so that people in similar situations can choose how and when to die. She was a successful high flying lawyer when she started getting the first worrying symptoms of this merciless illness. Brutally honest about what happened, how they coped, his feelings and the shortcomings of the New Zealand health service. Very sad, but uplifting at the same time.

Reading progress update: I've read 104 out of 176 pages.
Death Note: Another Note - NisiOisiN

Notes:

 

- I'm thankful this is so short, because the pacing is terrible.

 

- Nisioisin has resisted writing lengthy panty descriptions, but weird little jokes are everywhere. This book's tone is bizarre.

 

- So far it's a terrible mystery but decent Death Note tie-in novel. Except it's kind of screwing with the original series. If this murderer is considered a canon character and L knows what he's capable of, then L should probably have figured out some of Kira's abilities more quickly than he did.

 

And now for a quote:

 

"'Don't worry. I'm a top.'

 

'A top?'

 

'An aggressive top,' Ryuzaki said. 'I have never once been submissive. One of the few things I can boast about. I have never been submissive to a traffic signal.'" (82)

 

I can practically hear the slash fic being written. (And see what I mean about weird jokes?)

If I´d known how the week was going to turn out I would have sent it back first thing Monday and asked for a refund.
