Recent Updates and Currently Reading | January 12

This week was my first week back to work since before the holidays, and it was also birthday week for my oldest. He turned 13 this week! I officially have a teenager in the house. It was a super busy week for me. I'm hoping to take it easy and do some much needed blog hopping today.

Posted Last Week


On Monday I posted all of the January 2020 Book Releases in Fantasy, Horror, and Thrillers I'm most excited about.

On Tuesday I posted my ⭐⭐⭐★★ review of Middlegame by Seanan McGuire.

Wednesday I shared a few books that have recently made it onto my wishlist.

And then Friday I posted my ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ review of A Lush and Seething Hell by John Hornor Jacobs.

Finished Reading


Walking to Aldebaran by Adrian Tchaikovsky Middlegame by Seanan McGuire Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens

Walking to Aldebaran by Adrian Tchaikovsky ⭐⭐⭐⭐★ - This book had the perfect balance of world building and humor.

Middlegame by Seanan McGuire ⭐⭐⭐★★ - I've already posted my review of this one.

Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - So good. Stay tuned for a review!

Currently Reading


Come Tumbling Down by Seanan McGuire

Yay! The new Wayward Children book released this week! I started reading it this weekend because I just couldn't wait any longer.

Recent Acquisitions


The Empress of Salt and Fortune by Nghi Vo Flyaway by Kathleen Jennings The Only Good Indians by Stephen Graham Jones
The Hidden Girl and Other Stories by Ken Liu Truth Be Told by Kathleen Barber The Tenant by Katrine Engberg
The Twisted Ones by T. Kingfisher The Ruin of Kings by Jenn Lyons You Die When You Die by Angus Watson

Tor.com kindly granted me ecopies of The Empress of Salt and Fortune by Nghi Vo and Flyaway by Kathleen Jennings. I am highly anticipating both of these reads.

I gave into temptation and also grabbed copies of The Only Good Indians by Stephen Graham Jones and The Hidden Girl and Other Stories by Ken Liu since these are highly anticipated reads as well.

Many thanks to Gallery Books for sending me copies of Truth Be Told by Kathleen Barber and The Tenant by Katrine Engberg.

I bought a copy of The Twisted Ones by T. Kingfisher for the January group read in the Ladies of Horror Fiction goodreads group.

I also bought a couple of fantasy back titles that I'm in the mood to read this year: The Ruin of Kings by Jenn Lyons and You Die When You Die by Angus Watson.

So what about you? Let me know what you're reading this week or leave me some links!

  3. Happy Birthday to your son! I hope you had an easy transition back to work this past week. I admit many of the reviews of Middlegame have put me off a bit from reading it sooner than later, but I do want to read it. I just love everything I have read by McGuire so far. I'm still fairly new to her work--which I count as a good thing because I have so many wonderful books of hers ahead of me to experience for the first time. I haven't tried her Wayward Children series yet, but I do want to. I hope you enjoy all of your new books! There are so many good ones coming out. Have a great week, Jennifer!

  6. Hope your son had a wonderful birthday (mine is coming up this weekend so there must be a lot of January babies out there :) I got The Only Good Indians too and am really excited about it. I am also really wanting to read The Empress of Salt and Fortune but won't lie, it's strictly based on the cover.

  7. I hope you enjoy The Twisted ones! It was fun surprise. It thought it was going to dark and serious and it was creepy and funny instead. Also, I am thrilled that enjoyed Where the Crawdads Sing. I loved that book but my local book group were all "eh" after I chose it. I'm still sad about that.
