I’m going to ignore the Tatiana Maslany news in order to keep all upcoming news happy this week! Besides several people have reminded me that Marvel can be super weird and she might not be able to confirm her casting until there’s an official announcement. So I’m still crossing fingers there…
The Devil and the Dark Water
By: Stuart Turton
When Old Tom is summoned he whispers to you in the night offers your hearts desire for a bargain. And if you don’t bargain?
Which seems wildly unfair to me but that’s the situation the passengers of our ship find themselves in on their supposed to be 8 month journey home.
By: Frank Herbert
An epic novel with a complicated mother figure? A space witch of sorts sold to a powerful Duke for breeding who falls madly in love with him and therefore screws up the breeding plans…
Yeah I bet you can guess my favorite character.
So I actually took some notes on The Boys season 2 finale and the season overall and while I enjoyed it like crazy while watching it I was also kind of surprised how many nitpicks I had. Which I’m going to get out of the way first because I still think this is a great entertaining as hell show.
It just got a little too much.
Spoilers of course!
In all my Halloween Fall reading meant to scare me I haven’t read a book that’s done it yet. I haven’t found what I’m looking for yet I know that book exists…
And I don’t mean that metaphorically.
I know it. I own it.
I’m just to chicken to read it because when I get down to it I have many fears and anxieties but one takes the cake and it’s one you tend to run into a lot…
A Deadly Education
By: Naomi Novik
This was one of my most anticipated reads of the year. I loved Uprooted by the same author so when I heard it was about a school that you either graduate from or die in I had high expectations.
And it was admittedly a bumpy ride.
The Silence of Bones
By: June Hur
So for some reason I had it in my head the MC could talk to dead people or read there bones. Yeah don’t know where that came from. It’s not the case but it’s still a first rate mystery and great overall read.
Even without the talking to dead people part.

Black Sun is the first novel in a new fantasy series set in the pre-Columbia Americas. I had enjoyed the authors first work (Trail of Lightening) and never read anything in the setting before so was super excited to give this a go.
And the world does make for a truly different and intriguing read.
And Then There Were None
By: Agatha Christie
I read my very first Agatha Christie and me being me was actually surprised by how good it was!
By: Elizabeth Bear
After finishing this book I found myself a bit torn on the rating. I liked a lot of it. Liked the ideas but I also felt very cold overall and I think it comes down to the main character in the end.
