"Odd Apocalypse" by Dean Koontz. Odd Thomas is one very interesting character by Koontz. Very good movie adaptation of the book with the late Anton Yelchin in the title role and Willem Dafoe as police chief of the fictional Pico Mundo, Calif.

Yesterday I finished The Calculating Stars by Mary Robinette Kowal. It was entertaining but also had important things to say about prejudice and mental illness. I'd like to start on the follow-up novel, but as a third is due later this year, I'll wait to get at both then. For now I want to read another book on wish list. Just not sure what that book will be...

I'm having a go at 'The City in the Middle of the Night' by Charlie Jane Anders.
I'd read a bit of the hype on this and eventually bought it and started it.
TBH it's dragging a bit, too much unrequited romance and not enough sci fi. I have a feeling I won't finish it but I'll give it a couple more chapters out of stubbornness

Over the weekend I finished The Fated Sky, the follow-up to The Calculating Stars. I quite enjoyed it. I think I would like to read a bit more about the characters and the alternate timeline. I think the next books I'll read will be one of Gail Carriger's novellas and Theodora Goss' latest.

Yesterday evening I finished How to Marry a Werewolf by Gail Carriger. It was a good little romance story with some interesting drama and quite a few of Gail's touches. I quite enjoyed it.

Yesterday I finished Theodora Goss' collection Snow White Learns Witchcraft. It contains both poems and short stories. I really liked the short stories. There were interesting takes on fairy tales and folklore, and they featured interesting heroines. I'm not that much of a fan of poetry, but I did find some of the poems intriguing as well. Well worth picking up.
