The Strange Files of Fremont Jones
The Strange Files of Fremont Jones: A Fremont Jones Mystery (Fremont Jones Mysteries) - Dianne Day

This story was creepy but not really scary. It did keep my interest though and when I wasn´t reading I was wondering about what would happen. I´m glad I finally read it since I´ve had this book on my to-be-read list for a really long time. Fremont Jones reminds me a lot of myself, strong-willed and different. I love that she left her home to support herself and decided not to be married. She wanted to be her own person without the limits of societies ideals. I can´t wait to see what happens as I read more of this series.

Strange the Dreamer: DNF at 5 percent
Strange the Dreamer - Laini Taylor

Sorry, not sorry, I just am not going to force myself to read something I am not enjoying.


The purple prose and info dump that I tried to wade through turned me completely off. I can't say much more than that since I didn't waste my time trying to struggle through this read. 

 

I would also say that the flow was just a slog. I did try to skim a couple of chapters and just gave up.

Reading progress update: I've read 3%.
Strange the Dreamer - Laini Taylor

I smell a DNF coming.

 

"He roared the city’s name. Like thunder, like an avalanche, like the war cry of the seraphim who had come on wings of fire and cleansed the world of demons."

Gross
Doctor Strange (2015-) #23 - Dennis Hopeless,Niko Henrichon

More Secret Empire.   So gross.   Especially the whole Wilson Fisk thing.  I'm over this all right now.   

 

I wish I could give this whole event and all the tie-ins negative stars.

Review: Strange Dogs (Expanse Novella)
Strange Dogs: An Expanse Novella (The Ex... Strange Dogs: An Expanse Novella (The Expanse) - James S. A. Corey

This may be my favorite installation in the Expanse short fiction published so far. The protagonist is interesting and the alien world is sufficiently weird. I do hope this ties into one of the upcoming books.

 

I'm of two minds about the ending. On the one hand, fuck yeah, but on the other, it felt rather abrupt. Like we had only just gotten going when suddenly we stop. That isn't even a real criticism from me, though. See every review of a novella I have and you'll see me make a similar complaint time and time again.
