Midnight Kiss - Rebecca York

"What mythical creature has cloven hoofs and walks on two legs?" Matthew suddenly demanded.

Jessica's head snapped up.  "Pan.  The Greek God of the Forests.  Or the... the devil."

What you gonna read?
Ghostbusters: Novel (Coronet Books) - Larry Milne

Recently I re-watched the 80's classic Ghostbusters and for the first time I wondered if there had ever been a novelization of the story. Spoiler alert: There is and it's pretty weird. Much like the Star Trek screen-to-book adaptations that I've read this was written directly after the film was released and includes additional scenes and background information not covered in the original film. For example, did you know that Winston's last name is Zeddemore? And if you had only read the book I doubt you'd find Dana very charming...in fact you might think she was abrasive. While it mostly stuck to the script's dialogue, the character descriptions fell short of the mark. (Egon is still the best though.) Bonus material like movie stills, cast and crew bios, and movie credits were tacked on making this feel less like a novelization and more like a marketing ploy. (If you haven't guessed yet I wasn't overly impressed with it.) What I like about both the book and movie are all of the obvious nods to New York like the Schwarzman branch downtown. It's such a cool way to feel connected to the story. XD I can't deny that it wasn't that great though so it's a 3/10 from me.

The Red Cat Cookbook
The Red Cat Cookbook: 125 Recipes from New York City's Favorite Neighborhood Restaurant - Jimmy Bradley,Andrew Friedman

I loved the title and had fun with some of the recipes. My children are groaning at some of the ingredients. I am pretty sure I won't make many of them, but I did have fun with this.

Starting this excerpt now
New York 2140 - Kim Stanley Robinson

Finished Six Wakes, not willing to continue without much more IAN.   Starting this, but may bail for a bit.   It's just not grabbing me, either.
