Finished The Heart's Invisible Furies, by John Boyne. It was a great read, well-written, funny throughout and unexpectedly moving.

Started reading Into the Drowning Deep, by Mira Grant, prompted to do so by this month's /r/books bookclub. The premise is interesting but I'm not quite gripped by the book yet.

i finished Old Man's War by John Scalzi which was at the same time both predictable and not. entertaining, for sure, but i wish it had been more thought-provoking.

i started the book club book, Into the Drowning Deep by Mira Grant - i had tried to read Feed and hadn't been impressed enough to continue, but her prose has improved since then, imo. the characters are all still a bit too shiny, but it's not bad enough to pull me from the plot. :)

Finished this month's book club choice, Into the Drowning Deep by Mira Grant. It was a decent book. I really liked the ending. Kinda disappointed by the lack of participation in the book club.

I started The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood. I've had my eye on it for a while and went into it blind. It's okay I guess. Not what I expected. Maybe it's the writing style or something but I just don't like it. It's very YA to me and I usually try to avoid those kinds of books because they tend to be kinda repetative. I'm only halfway through so maybe it will get better.

Here are my books this week:

Into the Drowning Deep, by Mira Grant (I can't recommend it because the whole last third was crap.). Vengeful, by V.E. Schwab (I definitely recommend this one although a lot of the characters are assholes/whiny and useless), and Brain Food, by Lisa Mosconi (I also recommend this one because it's a great overview of food that'll help your brain be healthy). I also read The 4-Hour Work Week, by Tim Ferriss (which was mostly useful but a bit airy-fairy as well)!

I'm going to read some more fiction the next week. I'm tired of non-fiction to be honest.

I'm currently reading The Andromeda Strain, by Michael Crichton.

Into the Drowning Deep, by Mira Grant

Finally got this from the library and started for the /r/books bookclub over the weekend. It's way less suspenseful than I expected. It reveals killer mermaids are real in the first pages. You know what they look like and you get a brutal description of their attack on the Atargatis. Still interested to see what happens with the super well outfitted research vessel. I can't imagine it ends well.

My Cousin Rachel, by Daphne du Maurier

This is my current audiobook and I'm about 2/3 of the way through. I'm enjoying it a lot. It's a good mix of mystery and historical romance (which I've never really read before). Clues pop up just when you've forgotten anyone was still under suspicion. You can see where the narrator is falling for the woman he expected to hate, it makes for an interesting dynamic.

Finished Borne, by Jeff VanderMeer. Now reading Into the Drowning Deep, by Mira Grant.

Thought Borne was just ok. There were a few elements that I thought were interesting but as a whole it didn't do much for me. Found myself just wanting to be through with it a couple times.

Into the Drowning Deep, by Mira Grant

I'm still not sure how I feel about the man-eating mermaids being confirmed in the first few pages. There are other interesting mysteries to explore: the biology of the mermaids, the history of the mermaids, who exactly is behind the new expedition, and (of course) who is going to die.

The Terror, by Dan Simmons

I wasn't quite prepared for how long this audiobook is, but I'm hoping I'll finish before I have to return it to the library. The monster has been alluded to already and we've gotten a few flashbacks to it taking men and seen some evidence of its presence. There are other flashbacks to what life was like leading up to the expedition. I can see this being very polarizing (like all the whaling knowledge in Moby Dick). I'm enjoying it so far, but we'll see if it breaks up the pacing too much.

The Passive Income Playbook, by Raza Imam

I'm going to start at least one more this week, the Imam book will be done at lunch today. However, I don't know what that will be yet.

Finished Into the Drowning Deep, by Mira Grant. I enjoyed it quite a bit. Will save more thoughts for the book club discussion.

Now roughly 50% through Soleri, by Michael Johnston. So far mostly political intrigue/set up so far. Mostly still guessing where it's heading but the last couple chapters have started to get stronger with some foreshadowing and hints of where it may be going big picture wise. Interesting enough world.
