A Court of Thorns and Roses

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas is $1.99! This book and series is insanely popular and has Beauty and the Beast elements. However, some felt it didn’t live up to the hype or it had too much sexxxytimes for a YA-positioned book. Have you read this one?

A thrilling, seductive new series from New York Times bestselling author Sarah J. Maas, blending Beauty and the Beast with faerie lore.

When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a beast-like creature arrives to demand retribution for it. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she only knows about from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not an animal, but Tamlin—one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled their world.

As she dwells on his estate, her feelings for Tamlin transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie and warning she’s been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But an ancient, wicked shadow grows over the faerie lands, and Feyre must find a way to stop it . . . or doom Tamlin—and his world—forever.

Perfect for fans of Kristin Cashore and George R. R. Martin, this first book in a sexy and action-packed new series is impossible to put down!

Once Upon a Billionaire

Once Upon a Billionaire by Jessica Clare is $1.99! This is book four in the Billionaire Boys Club and it’s a series I’ve always been meaning to start. Readers loved the opposites attract romance between a stuffy royal and a spirited, “country bumpkin” heroine. However, some say the heroine’s “innocence” really got on their nerves.

The Billionaire Boys Club is a secret society of six men who have vowed success—at any cost. Not all of them are old money, but all of them are incredibly wealthy. They’re just not always as successful when it comes to love…

As a member of the royal family in a small European country, Griffin Verdi’s presence is requested at the wedding of the century. The scholarly billionaire feels out of his depth in social situations, so a good assistant is required—especially when dealing with royal etiquette.

Unfortunately for Griffin, he’s stuck with Maylee Meriweather, a pretty, charming, and thoroughly unsuitable woman who doesn’t know a thing about high society—but she sure can kiss. Her lack of polish may sink Griffin, because after all, even his money can’t buy class. But through Maylee’s eyes, he’s starting to appreciate the simple things in life—if simple means the most complicated woman he’s ever met.

Maylee is everything Griffin isn’t—and everything he wants—if he can let down his guard and step outside his sheltered world…

The Understatement of the Year

The Understatement of the Year by Sarina Bowen is 99c! This is the third book in the Ivy Years series and features a m/m romance. Readers loved the tension between the two heroes, but some felt that one of them was a bit of a jerk. It has a 4.1-star rating on Goodreads.

What happened in high school stayed in high school. Until now.

Five years ago, Michael Graham betrayed the only person who ever really knew him. Since then, he’s made an art of hiding his sexuality from everyone. Including himself.

So it’s a shock when his past strolls right into the Harkness College locker room, sporting a bag of hockey gear and the same slow smile that had always rendered Graham defenseless. For Graham, there is only one possible reaction: total, debilitating panic. With one loose word, the team’s new left wing could destroy Graham’s life as he knows it.

John Rikker is stuck being the new guy. Again. And it’s worse than usual, because the media has latched onto the story of the only “out” player in Division One hockey. As the satellite trucks line the sidewalk outside the rink, his new teammates are not amused.

And one player in particular looks sick every time he enters the room.

Rikker didn’t exactly expect a warm welcome from Graham. But the guy won’t even meet his eyes. From the looks of it, his former… best friend / boyfriend / whatever isn’t doing so well. He drinks too much and can’t focus during practice.

Either the two loneliest guys on the team will self destruct from all the new pressures in their lives, or they can navigate the pain to find a way back to one another. To say that it won’t be easy is the Understatement of the Year.

APB: Baby

by Julie Miller
June 1, 2016 · Harlequin Intrigue
RomanceRomantic Suspense

This RITA® Reader Challenge 2017 review was written by Jenica H. This story was nominated for the RITA® in the Short Contemporary Romance category.

The summary:

USA TODAY bestselling author Julie Miller’s new series launches with a lawman and social worker who team up to safeguard a baby

After a near-fatal shootout at his sister’s wedding, third-generation lawman Niall Watson comes home to a baby in distress. The abandoned newborn in his neighbor’s apartment sends the Kansas City PD criminologist into rescue mode once again.

Social worker Lucy McKane will do whatever it takes to protect the infant boy entrusted to her care. The tall, sexy ME next door may be clueless about her feelings for him, but Niall’s the only one who can keep them safe. As a vengeful killer targets them, desire draws Lucy and Niall dangerously closer. Together, can they find justice and safeguard their newly created family?

Here is Jenica H.'s review:

APB: Baby, the first of Julie Miller’s new The Precinct: Bachelors in Blue series, is a romantic suspense novel that sets up not one, but two mysteries. The book opens at Olivia Watson’s wedding. Olivia is the youngest of the four Watson siblings and Dr. Niall Watson has been put in charge of keeping his other brothers Duff and Keir in line during the wedding. Once the vows are made, there’s a shooting that weirdly only results in Samuel (the grandfather) being shot. Niall’s had a long and stressful day and when he gets home from the hospital, he’s annoyed to find that there’s now a baby somewhere on his floor who won’t stop crying. Eventually, he sets off to investigate (he’s a medical examiner for Kansas City P.D.) and discovers that someone broke into his pretty neighbor Lucy’s apartment. Once inside, he finds a baby.

When Lucy returns, she is startled, scared, and extremely worried about her former foster daughter, Diana. The appearance of the baby, whom Niall and his dad have nicknamed Tommy, is unexpected and she knows something is wrong with Diana. The rest of the novel deals with Lucy and Niall trying to find Diana, and also trying to prevent Lucy from being killed by the people with whom Diana is entangled. And, obviously, Lucy and Niall have to deal with their feelings and come together for the sake of Tommy and themselves.

Personally, I really enjoyed this book. It is a fun and quick read (nominated in the Short Contemporary category!) that is well-written and engaging. Niall and Lucy are a fun couple to watch evolve because Niall is much more logical and scientific, while Lucy (a social worker) is more intuitive and attuned to emotional reactions. The characters definitely adhered to some serious gender norms, but I appreciated that it felt authentic. Niall isn’t a hyper-masculine male, but he definitely has that overprotective alpha thing going, though thankfully he doesn’t snap at Lucy for breathing in the face of danger. Also, his worry felt merited by the events of the book, so that helped it stay within the bounds of respectability. Lucy, meanwhile, is a social worker who loves children, but can’t have her own because of Tragic Backstory.™ She’s extremely empathetic and very worried about Diana, but Miller does a great job of always keeping her reactions grounded in the events that are happening around her, which prevents Lucy from becoming a caricature.

I had a few pet peeves about this book though, which I’m a little worried about because Lord of Scoundrels (which I just finished last night) maxed out my emotional patience and toleration for characters who refuse to acknowledge what is in front of them and insist on assigning bad motivation to their romantic interest’s advances. I know, I know, this is a realistic and reasonable response to having a pretty messed up back story (and Lucy does have a pretty messed up history), but for heaven’s sake. I just felt like they could have been happier for a longer period of time (and maybe had sex more than once) if they would have gotten it together sooner. Also, despite saying this, the emotional barriers never get particularly angsty, which was an interesting juxtaposition. (Which also made me realize that maybe I like my angst more than I thought I did. Who knew?)

I also just alluded to my other pet peeve, which is that they only had sex once in the whole novel. Now listen, I get it. You’re working a case and people are trying to kill you and also a baby, but for heaven’s sake. Like four kisses and one sex scene are wildly insufficient for me. If, on the other hand, you like your books to be on the less sexy side, this one might be perfect for you because even the one sex scene was pretty tame.

Oh boy, I guess it’s grade time. I would give APB: Baby a solid B. It was an enjoyable read, but I don’t foresee it being one that sticks with me for significant period of time. That said, if you like romantic suspense, with an emphasis on the mystery over the romance, I think this book combines the genres quite well.

Yesterday's filksing at my place drew a small but lively group, including newcomer Isaac. And I do mean newcomer, at five weeks of age! I locked Mokka away upstairs, since she can be hostile to visitors, and I especially didn't want to take chances with a baby. Mokka had food, water, and a litter box and didn't seem unhappy with the arrangement. Carl hung around the filksing, glad to see all these people who might give him food! At one point he kept his foot under the pedal of my keyboard for about 20 minutes. I think he was telling me not to play it so much and to give him more attention (and food). There was no lack of food, but it was the human variety.

At the business meeting we had a rather overdue discussion of guests for ConCertino and came up with a preferred slate. Invitations should be going out shortly.

The next filksing will be at Cornerstone Cohousing in Cambridge, Mass., on Saturday, May 13, so anyone who didn't come to this one because it was too far from Boston should find the next one easier to get to.

Kim & Kim, Volume 1

by Magdalene Visaggio
January 3, 2017 · Black Mask Comics
RomanceRomantic Suspense

I heard great things about Kim & Kim, and I was not disappointed. The first issue was so much fun that I ordered Volume One (which collects issues 1-4) before even finishing that first issue. My only complaint is that now I have to wait for Volume Two!

Kim & Kim is about two women who are “mostly platonic” best friends and partners in bounty hunting. Kim and Kim live in a futuristic world where everything is brightly colored and punk. One of the Kims carries an electric guitar. The other carries a pink machine gun. The first bounty has octopus arms. The Kims travel in a flying van.

The dialogue and illustrations are funny and full of crazy action and fashion and fourth-wall-breaking silliness. It’s like cotton candy in comic book form.

The Kims make a grand entrance - introducing Kim Q and Kim D

For all its goofiness, Kim & Kim does have real solidity in how the characters interact. Kim and Kim feel like real, long-time friends, both in their body language and their speech. The scene in which we discover that Kim Q. is transgender is one in which the two women discuss old crushes and gossip about their rival bounty hunters. They know each other completely, and it’s lovely the way they banter and converse like old friends and lean, physically, on each other in times of stress.

The Kims talk about their past

Kim and Kim are not the only female characters. There’s a mom and an auntie and friends and colleagues. There is also a pair of rival bounty hunters– two men, Saar and Columbus. They are rivals in the sense that when Kim and Kim get into a fight with them and win, they leave the guys with band-aids and Vicodin for the sake of old friendship.

So much of the joy of reading this book came from the variety of representation and the sense of shared history that the characters have and how that history draws some together and some apart.

I seriously love everything about this comic. I love the characters, I love the story, and I love the art. I love the supporting characters almost as much as I love Kim and Kim. I love that there’s a helpful list of conclusions to draw if you are attacked by robot gorillas, and I love that Kim Q. wants to open a punk bakery: “We’d bake like transgressive muffins and cakes that had ‘queeriarchy’ written on them in fondant and we’d live on love!”

The Kims have bakery dreams

Kim & Kim is whimsical, but there’s enough emotional connection between the characters, not to mention the shadow of their mysterious fathers, to keep the comic from being overly cutesy. It won’t be for everyone, but if you like kick-ass women, science fiction mixed with fantasy mixed with rent troubles, female friendship, characters of color, and queer characters, then you’ll love this book.

I was using the voice dictation in my Android phone to write a note to a friend a little while ago. I said, approximately, "Google Maps says it's about a half-hour drive", but what came out was

Google maps Etxepare, potes!

I have had funny slips like that before, so I checked the dictation language. It seems that somehow my finger slipped and set it to Catalan! I didn't even know I had that possibility. I certainly don't know the language.

However, that "-tx-" shouts "Basque!" It's pronounced like our CH, and as a letter combination it's very unusual. So I had Google search for "Etxepare", and sure enough just about everything that came up was clearly Basque, often labeled Basque. ("Speak Basque!", "Basque film series", etc.)

Then this showed up:


When I clicked on the snippet, this is what I saw, on eBay:

Armenian-Basque dictionary

$24.59
Was: $29.99

An Armenian-Basque dictionary. Well, somebody must have found it useful. It's no stranger than any other pair of languages that have small speaking populations. But still, it's funny. I like it. — Ah, "Etxepare" is the author's last name.

But I'm not going to buy it. I already have too many books that I'm trying, with difficulty, to thin out.

Oh yes. Apparently "potes", which is Latin for "you can", is also Catalan for "legs".

Coughing and/or sleeping

Sick again all this past week. It seems to be lifting.

For two nights I couldn't sleep. After the first night, I was strangely energized; after the second, I was all in ruins.

The next night, I worked out I could sleep if I sat on the futon (which sits on the floor), then propped my torso up on the bed with pillows and quilts. This way, I could lie upright but completely supported. I listened to the soundtrack of West Wing episodes all night and finally slept, not heavily but at least for a reasonable duration. Last night I slept in a more usual position and it seemed all right.

I've had these happy dreams the last few days, jumbles of community and confusion, with Mild Peril but a general sense of positive action.

News in noises and images

I'm starting new courses on Monday. I'm running an online course for the first time, and tonight I finished a super goofy little audio intro for the course website. I open with the distinctive harmonica line from "The Times They are A-Changin" -- distinctive in this case for being almost unrecognizeable when played breathlessly upon my bent harmonica. This, because the long text for the course will be Alan Moore's Watchmen, and the Dylan song is, of course, played over the opening credits of the film version.

I want to watch the new MST3K, but I don't want to re-sub to NetFlix. LB & S & I are contemplating American Gods as our next group viewing project. Also, there are two episodes of John Oliver to watch.

Because of Backlisted podcast, I'm reading Jane Gardam's A Long Way from Verona, and it's really pretty wonderful. I've never read anything by Gardam, but I like her voice and I'm already seeking out more.

Money and planning and grimacing adulthood

I have been making a budget, a proper one, for the first time, well, probably ever. It shows me I am terrible with money, which I knew, and yet it grieves me. However, it also offers me scope for reform.

On Tuesday and Wednesday I was so committed to procrastination that I actually wrote two poems and sent them out, thus doubling my submission rate as compared to 2016. So I did *something* for poetry month.

Next up: meal planning.

(Edited to correct spelling of Gardam's name and the title of her book -- I keep muddling it up with A Far Cry from Kensington, which I own -- somewhere -- but have not finished.)

Tonight, I ate dinner in the only restaurant in town, which is also one of the two bars in town.  On one of the televisions a hockey game was playing.

Now, what I know about all sports except baseball mostly amounts to "cheer when everyone else does."  Since the nearest ice rink to where I grew up was an hour and a half away, and it rarely got below freezing so no ponds to skate on, until Hockey RPF started becoming one of the big fandoms I knew even less about hockey than about any other major sport.

But tonight, I looked up at the screen, recognized the teams (Penguins vs. Caps), saw Geno go into the penalty box (I think?  It might have been just back to the bench?), and thought, "Wonder how Sid feels?"

'American Gods' in the age of Trump

Neil Gaiman discusses immigrants, road trips and the importance of empathy.
April 21, 2017

Neil Gaiman hopes that “American Gods” will make your world "weirder." A TV adaptation of his critically acclaimed book of the same title, it brings viewers face-to-face with gods of the past and gods of the present, seamlessly blending fantasy, Americana and mythology.

The central character is Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle), a man recently released from prison who embarks on an out-of-this-world road trip with the eccentric, Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane).

While Gaiman is a master of fiction, it turns out many of the places in the book were inspired by real places seen on his own road trips around the United States.

“I would go on long drives across America before I was writing it and as I was writing it. And I would also go on drives to places that the book had taken me,” he reveals. “I’d say, ‘Oh, okay, well the characters in the book seem to be heading here, and I’ve never really been there.’ So then I would get in my car and go for a lovely long drive.”

 

back roads and ghost towns )

 

“When I wrote the novel, the thing that I thought was absolutely and utterly non-contentious was the idea that America is a land peopled by immigrants, colonists and people coming in from elsewhere,” Gaiman notes. “The idea that you should welcome people in — that seemed non-contentious. These things have changed and seem more important now.” He adds, “I’m proud that we’re saying it.”

While the tone of "American Gods" is dark — complete with shocking sex scenes, gloriously bloody battles and the living dead — Gaiman's wishes for what viewers take away from it are bright.

“I hope that they will give a second glance to some of the people that they meet. I hope that they will think a little bit more about the new gods that they are giving their time, attention and worship to. And I hope that they will learn a little empathy.”

“American Gods” premieres on April 30 on STARZ.

Food adventures! I basically had to restock my pantry today, which meant I had to do some meal-planning for once, which meant I now have a window open with a billion tabs of healthy one-skillet recipes. The one I chose tonight was Light Coconut Shrimp and Pineapple Quinoa. "Why Esther," you might be saying, "you don't eat shrimp!" That is true; I think most people assume religion, but honestly I used to love shrimp as a kid, except once I OD'd and got a nasty bout of food poisoning that kept me from attending my cousin's bar mitzvah, for which we'd all flown to Israel. Yes, I got sick from shrimp in Jerusalem two months after the Gulf War ended. Life is like a box of chocolates, &c.

So anyway, I did not use shrimp. Instead, I used some sort of vegan chicken bits that were mostly made of fungus (mushrooms, whatever, but fungus is more fun to say). As it turns out, they were delicious. I'm maybe starting to like cooking with vegan chicken way more than actual chicken -- the texture and the taste are amazingly similar, and I don't have to worry about chicken juice, A+! Verdict: This recipe is very tasty and quite filling. I think there may be ways to pack more taste into it -- maybe adding the coconut milk a little later in the process, or something else to bring out one flavor in particular. (Or maybe my ingredients just weren't where they needed to be?) Either way, I would definitely make this again and tinker with it.

Meanwhile, I just finished the first episode of The Handmaid's Tale and I don't think I've ever felt tenser watching an hour of filmed media in my life. It's gorgeous and absolutely terrifying and upsetting and I have literally no idea why anyone would take pains to say it's a "universal" story rather than a feminist one. (I also definitely spotted the Margaret Atwood cameo, though it's subtle.) I will definitely continue watching, but maybe with, like, a handle of budget bourbon, you know?

Meanwhile plus one, I just heard a spoiler about GotG2 that full-on confirms I have no interest in that shit, thanks. I never cared much for this property, tbh, and I'm not looking forward to more of the MCU in space that's not Thor (space ruins comics basically every time, as far as I'm concerned, which is a shame because space is cool and great). I'm... really just ready for Ragnarok and Black Panther and whenever Bucky Barnes gets some goddamn storytelling justice done by him.

Oh no, I wanted to end happy! While I was in Chicago, I bought a fountain pen I actually intend to really use, a banana-yellow Lamy that's really lovely to use. I also bought this hardbound notebook with a great '40s-esque print on the outside. I was planning to use it for Big Band Witches stuff, but I keep trying to find the heart of that story and I'm not getting there. The throughline of The Handmaid's Tale, the engine that drives everything and lets you explore, is simple: The state controls human reproductive capabilities. I think The Magicians also lets things unfold from a simple premise (misfit learns he's a magician and goes to school for it) and uses character combinations to excellent effect. Part of me wonders if I'm clinging to a story I promised myself I'd write once (along with characters who remain ciphers), rather than simply letting something new happen, especially since so many people have said such kind things about the earlier drafts and ideas. I want to sit down with this pen and this notebook and try to loosen up about all of it, but we'll see. Oh no, also not a perky ending!

Which, I mean, is fine. But hey, I get to see [twitter.com profile] pipifelix tomorrow before my all-day shift at Shop, and that is always an occasion for \o/.

Oh man, I had Pokemon Go running while I was down in Indiana, and I scored an Up-Grade from one of the two pokestops between the train station and the Dunes. Apparently the only thing the Up-Grade works on is a Porygon, but I only have one Porygon and I don’t know if I want to evolve it…

DECISIONS. Spark guide my hand.
