Relistening
The Fold - Peter Clines,Ray Porter

I finished Binary Witness and needed something new to listen to while working. I have several audiobooks I haven't listened to in my Audible Library, plus access to audiobooks in three different library Overdrive collections, and yet here I am, relistening to this. I just don't want to have to concentrate on a new-to-me story, and Ray Porter's narration is nice. I plan to fast forward through the "romance" part, though, because Clines doesn't do romance or sex scenes well. Thankfully that part is brief.

Exactly what kinds of meals, desserts, and luxury goods does this world have? Because right now it seems like Myne is the only one with amazing ideas. Like, she just invented pound cake. And do these people not have seasonings other than salt and pepper?

OMG, I totally forgot that commoners with the Devouring (a magical illness) have to become the slaves of nobles to survive. In Freida's case,

her contract states that once she's legally an adult, she's going to be the mistress of the noble who essentially bought her. So gross.

Ascendance of a Bookworm: Part 1 Vol. 2 - Miya Kazuki,Karuho Shiina,quof

I just finished the first of the two bonus stories, and hoo boy was it a mistake to include it. Otto's "courtship" of Corinna was exactly as creepily sudden and rushed as he made it sound. More so, in some ways - I had thought he'd actually gotten to know her somehow before deciding that she was absolutely the one for him, but no, it was literally love at first sight for him. Three days later, and he'd completely and expensively abandoned his old life just for the chance to marry her. She, by the way, was still considered a minor for six more months. And speaking of minors, I sure hope that talk about hooking up Myne and Benno was some kind of creepy joke. Myne is six, and Benno is probably in his twenties.

The first book was decent enough, but this one is definitely better. And I don't think it's just my love of fantasy merchants speaking, although Benno just got to face off against the guildmaster of the Merchants' Guild, yay.
