Recent Updates and Currently Reading | April 19

I have lost all track of time!

Last night was the Bram Stoker Awards. Since StokerCon has been postponed, the awards were all virtual over YouTube. I was able to watch over Skype with some of my Ladies of Horror Fiction friends. The women kicked ass again this year in the Stokers.

Be sure to check out the winners.

Today is birthday day for my now 11 year old. There will be much needed cupcakes today.

Posted Last Week


I posted my ⭐⭐⭐⭐★ review of Girls Save the World in This One by Ash Parsons.

I shared all of the April new releases that are on my radar.

I also posted my ⭐⭐⭐⭐★ review of Catfish Lullaby by A.C. Wise.

Finished Reading

  1. How fun that you were able to catch the awards with some friends. The good things about tech! I hope you all enjoyed the cupcakes, and that your child felt celebrated. It's tough having a birthday in quarantine.

  8. The Stokers sound nice. I'll have to go look at the list of winners. And happy birthday to your 11 year old! Hope it was an awesome day. I love the look of the Lumberjanes- i've only read the first one but it was fun. :)

    Ooh The War of the Worlds looks awesome- I just started the new adaptation on Amazon PRime (only one episode in but so far seems okay).

  9. That's nice that you were able to watch the awards with friends over Skype! It's so important right now to stay connected any way we can.

    I read and enjoyed The Night Swim. It's a little deeper than I was expecting, in a good way.

  12. I know a number of people are missing book conventions. I watched Baen Books roadshow last night which gave me lots of new science fiction books to look for. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  14. I just now finished up the Stoker awards. They were so short but they did a good job considering the circumstances. I've never read Lumberjanes. Still haven't finished Saga yet. Maybe I should do that next.

  15. Hope the cupcakes were thoroughly enjoyed. Comics sound perfect for these times when reading seems to have challenged many of us. Take care.
