The new indexing project is going more smoothly than the last one. The weather was seasonable most of the week, but it’s going up into the mid-80s today and tomorrow. (No, thank you; I’m really ready for mid- to high 60s. But we won’t get daytime temperatures like that for a few weeks yet.) Other than that, there’s not much going on!

What I’m Reading/Watching
Reading: I read A Yuletide Kiss (anthology; ARC), Lightning in the Mirror (Jayne Ann Krentz; ARC), and All the Feels (Olivia Dade; ARC), and I reread Stars of Fortune (reviewed in 2017) and Bay of Sighs by Nora Roberts. (Yes, I’m having insomnia again.) I am almost finished with Scales and Sensibility (Stephanie Burgis; ARC), which is delightful. I started Someone to Care (Mary Balogh), but as with the last time I tried reading it, I am having a hard time sticking with it; I don’t particularly like the “hero,” at least as he appears in the initial section of the book. I should trust Mary Balogh, though; she almost never lets me down.
Unfortunately, I had to return This Poison Heart to the library before I had a chance to finish it, but I have put in another hold request. (Click title for Goodreads page.)
Next week, I hope to read Say Yes to the Marquess (Tessa Dare) for a buddy read, and The Strange Case of the Alchemist’s Daughter (Theodora Goss) for a “Movie Monster” readathon. I will also finish up the Guardians trilogy with Island of Glass, which I started yesterday.
Podcasts: Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me; Twenty Thousand Hertz; Smart Bitches, Trashy Podcast; 99% Invisible; The Allusionist; Imaginary Worlds. (I’m working my way through some of the episodes I missed from earlier this year.)
