 Recent additions to the to be read pile (which is not merely books I want to read, but have actually purchased, and are mostly a literal pile.)
  • Winter Tide by Ruthanna Emrys which I have been anxiously awaiting for months and pre-ordered the hardcover and now that I actually have it in my hands I have had no brain whatsoever, and I want to be able to pay attention when I read it. (The preceding novella, Litany of Earth, was the best novella I read in 2014, and it is free to read online)
  • River of Teeth by Sarah Gailey, because hippos and she's immensely entertaining on twitter, even though alt history isn't usually my thing. But hippos.
  • Last Call at the Nightshade Lounge by Paul Krueger, which involves magical cocktails and Chicago.
  • The Hyacinth Fairy book by T. Kingfisher (aka Ursula Vernon), which I have many chunks of when they were posted to her LJ, and the annotated fairy tales are amusing and something I can enjoy without particularly braining.
  • The Art of Three by Erin McRae and Racheline Maltese, which is a poly romance by someone whose prose I have enjoyed on the internet for several zillion years.
That's not the whole pile, of course, just the recent acquisitions.  I am amused that 3 of the 5 are by folks I read/used to read on LJ, which is to say [Unknown LJ tag] [Unknown LJ tag] and [Unknown LJ tag] 

Now, I just need some brain, so I can do something more reading wise than rereading the Antler Guy continuing fic (so glad it is now on ao3 too, it's awful to read on tumblr) which just scratches all the right itches without being demanding, and I still am plowing through the Hugo reading as well, though at least there I had already read a fair chunk of the short fiction.

    Apparently I am anticipating summer, since dresses are suddenly interesting again. Though I have to shave my head to wear them, mostly.
