Artemis

Weir, Andy
Artemis is a city on the moon, and consists of several bubbles. The main character is a woman I thought was a seventeen-year-old girl for most of the book. She nearly kills everyone, but (SPOILER) ends up saving everyone from her almost killing them. Not a complicated story, and maybe the writing could be a little more better, but it did the job and was fun to read. I may even give The Martian a try!

Harrow The Ninth

Muir, Tamsyn
I am going to cop out and say this book, the second in the series, is too complicated to sum up, at least by me.

The Siren Depths

Wells, Martha
The Books of the Raksura #3. The story moves right along, and is quite interesting. I went to the bag-o-books to get the next one, but I don't have it yet! Yikes!

The Serpent Sea

Wells, Martha
The Books of the Raksura #2, I read somewhere. Good story, I read it over several days, with one massive marathon session on the last days. I only noticed one "raised eyebrow"...

Quote:

Moon had been consort to Jade, sister queen of the Indigo Cloud Court, for eleven days and nobody had tried to kill him yet. He thought is was going well so far.--pg. 9

Dancing At The Pity Party: A Dead Mom Graphic Memoir

Feder, Tyler
This is one of several books I bought about death while in a melancholy mood one day. It's pretty good, a thirty-ish woman tells about her mother dying of cancer ten years before, and how she has dealt with it. Some useful information, and I learned about Jewish customs too.

Digging Up Mother: A Love Story

Stanhope, Doug
Comedian Stanhope recounts growing up with an alcoholic mother. She was much more than that, though, and it's a great, if profanity-lace, story. I enjoyed it very much. I don't think I'd care to see his act, though.

The Silent Patient

Michaelides, Alex
I guess this would be a psychological thriller, eh? I enjoyed reading it, and read it rather quickly. I LOVED the short chapters! Everyone should write short chapters! I was surprised by the ending.
