I'm giving myself amnesty for everything between when I last posted and last week. If you're really interested, friend me on goodreads (because I've mostly kept up to date on what I read there).

Read: I spent the early part of January starting and stopping books, both new books and rereads. Out of desperation, I went to Goodreads for inspiration, and was reminded that I hadn't read the last Laundry Files because it was more than I like to pay for ebooks, and I for some reason I didn't grab the library's copy. I like Stross's shift to Mo in The Annihilation Score, though her life in government service was very spot on (including the issue of developing uniforms, though that is more from a friend than my experience).

From there, I decided to try Seanan McGuire's Indexing stories. Pacing is weird (I assume due to it being released in bits by Kindle Serial), but I found it fun.

Reading: Random trawling through Amazon recommendations brought me to Jo Graham's Black Ships, a retelling of Aeneid. Readable so far, and I'm curious to see how it goes. I'm debating if I should follow it up with Le Guin's Lavinia, or if reading two versions back to back would be distracting.

To Read: Either the previously mentioned, or Marguerite Reed's Archangel. Unless someone recommends something else.
