Saturday Miscellany – 2/10/18

Forgive me a minor rerun from Twitter/FB a couple of days ago (in case you follow me there, if not, check out those handy buttons to the right!) — on Tuesday, I made a joke about wanting to come down with the flu do I could catch up on reading (namely, finishing Iron Gold by Pierce Brown and reading Blood Binds the Pack by Alex Wells — literally no idea when I can fit that one into my schedule). Then Wednesday night/Thursday morning, I got sick. So sick I couldn’t focus on print — I dabbled on social media off and on, but that was about all the concentration I had. Blargh. I’m on the upswing, I think, but just know that this post has taken me three sessions to complete. Just that kind of week. Hope you all stay healthy this flu season.

Somehow, I managed to get a good sample of odds ‘n ends over the week about books and reading that caught my eye. You’ve probably seen some/most/all of them, but just in case:

    This Week’s New Releases I’m Excited About and/or You’ll Probably See Here Soon:

  • Blood Binds the Pack by Alex Wells — Witches (of a sort), a biker gang (of a sort), interstellar corporate greed and corruption (of the typical dystopian sort), and some of the more intriguing characters I met in 2017. Can’t wait to get into this one.
  • Suicide of the West by Jonah Goldberg — The subtitle sold me on reading this: “How the Rebirth of Tribalism, Populism, Nationalism, and Identity Politics is Destroying American Democracy”

Lastly, I’d like to say hi and extend a warm welcome to awritersramblings446569187, Somya Gujjar, LFBooks, andrea bindi and rimpytoor for following the blog this week.
