Hard months are hard. Thank heaven for fiction, at least. I think taking a break to see Despicable Me went a long way toward keeping me from exploding, or imploding. It's so fluffy!

And the new Sherlock BBC series! That's really engaging - although I like the direction they've taken, part of me wants an even more alternate take on Holmes canon: why not set it in the future? Why not have Holmes or Watson or Lestrade a different race, or gender? They could have played with the concept even more, I feel, for what's essentially fanfiction on tv. (Will I still be watching it avidly? Oh hells yes. :D )

More piecemeal booklogging:

7. Out by Natsuo Kirino.
Wow. How to describe Out. I loved it? Dark, violent, gripping and beautiful... )

8. Death By Chick Lit by Lynn Harris.
Okay, I picked this up because the title made me double-take, but it turned out to be a funny, catty, well done little murder mystery... )

9. Soon I Will Be Invincible by Austin Grossman.
I do love people running around in spandex and capes... )

10. Pigeons From Hell by Joe Lansdale and Nathan Fox.
Thoroughly spooky and violent, but artistically quite lovely... )
