What I've read: poetry
[personal profile] serene mentioned the poem-a-day email from Rattle and I signed up. I don't really feel I know or understand poetry very much, but these ones have stuck with me so far:
Shoveling Snow by Vicki L. Wilson
April Rain by Abigail Rose Cargo


What I've read: short fiction
I also recently subscribed to Daily Science Fiction which gets me a short story in my email on weekdays, so even if I'm not getting to anything else, I usually manage to read that.

Shop Talk by O. Hybridity
Grandma Heloise by KT Wagner
An Invasion in Seven Courses by Rene Sears

Two more novellas from the historical romance collection Gambled Away:
Raising the Stakes by Isabel Cooper: A 1930s con-artist accidentally summons elvish help when she wins a flute in a poker game; he helps her pull off a really big con.
Redeemed by Molly O'Keefe: A former army doctor and a former spy, brought together by a really nasty character and a high-stakes poker-game in the aftermath of the US Civil War.

  • Daring Greatly by Brene Brown

What I've read: short fiction
3 short works by Rebecca Fraimow, consisting of:
What I've read: long fiction

Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows by Dan Slott & Adam Kubert
A belated present for my brother from his wishlist, which I may have sneaked a read of before handing over.  One of the n million Battleworld AUs, this has Peter and MJ and their spider-powered offspring in a dystopia where almost all the superheroes have been killed off by the tyrant in charge, and Peter spends his time hiding his and his daughter's powers and definitely not being a hero ever.  I am a bit meh about the morality that sets Protecting One's Family over and above everything else (especially as spoiler )) but the art is to my taste and I liked seeing Peter in something like a healthy and functioning relationship.

The Alpha's Home by Dessa Lux.  Book 5 of The Protection of the Pack series, which I continue to find enjoyable and comforting reading.

Acquisitions:
Just the Dessa Lux.  (The Spider-Man doesn't count because it's not mine.)
