I’ve finished reading the anthology A Girl’s Guide to Guns and Monsters, as well as Laurell K. Hamilton’s Flirt, so you can expect to see reviews of those soon. I’m in the middle of Amber Benson’s Cat’s Claw, so that will probably be next. I also have review copies of two Stonewall Kitchens cookbooks, concerning breakfasts and winter celebrations, so in a few weeks (once we’ve had a chance to test out some recipes!) you’ll hear about those!
In other words, barring any unforeseen circumstances, it looks like the insomnia’s on the mend and I’ll be back to expounding on what I loved & hated about the books I’ll finally be reading again. I hope your own years are starting off well! 🙂
Update on 2/18: I’ve put together the initial scaffolding of four reviews: the above-mentioned three, plus Walter Greatshell’s “Xombies: Apocalypticon.” Now that I’m awake and have gotten myself moving again, I hope to work on those reviews over the next few days, plus start reading a couple of more thought-intensive books that I’ve had to delay: Daniel Rabuzzi’s The Choir Boats: Volume One of Longing for Yount and Carrie Host’s Between Me and the River. We’ve also made the first couple of recipes out of the breakfast cookbook and a bacon cookbook we picked up over Christmas, so reviews of those will probably show up in the next few weeks!
There’s something a bit terrifying about having to catch up on nearly three years’ worth of insomnia-induced lack of productive output, but I’ve finally managed to pick a spot and start digging, which ought to make things easier.
