Welcome to the second half of 2017, which will go by in what feels like three weeks but will also feel like 19 years thanks to Political Shenanigans. Time is weird! Luckily, we have books to get us through it all.

I always enjoy looking at all the books I may read, even the ones that I'm going to have to make hard purchasing decisions about. Out of my anticipated books last time, I've read 10. For a lot of them I'm waiting for them to cycle out of the new collection and into general at the library so I can enjoy all the things I check out for a full, glorious month. I suspect I won't get to some of these until 2018 when my library buys all the late-year release books and cycles the others out of new. I love my library, but I wish the new book check out time was longer than two weeks. Two and a HALF weeks would help me. Alas, alas.

I have my eye on a ton of science fiction IN SPACE this time around. Some of these I suspect I'll buy if my finances work out so I can use them for my space opera challenge. Read more... )

What great-sounding books have I missed? What's everyone else looking forward to?

Last night I dreamed I was trying to get to the Indian Health Service Hospital to see "The Dr." while I was writing the last episode of Dr. Who, ever. At one point I hitched a ride to what I thought was IHS but turned out only to be a 1/12 scale model built by two guys in the mountains. When I finally did get to IHS (built terrifyingly into the side of a cliff over a rushing river) I discovered that my former online friend turned meatlife friend and neighbor grinnifer/fukingprole/typodmary was a doctor there (which was extra frustrating since I started the adventure at her house- if I'd only told her where I was going I could have hitched a ride with her). Also the final doctor in the Dr. Who series was played by a remarkably well preserved Tom Baker.

Oh my brain is weird.

I won the academic anxiety dream discussion in the car.
I had no idea.
Apparently it's not too common to dream of getting a test with questions like.
When are you going to give up?
How long have you known you're a failure?
Who exactly do you think you're fooling?
etc etc etc

I have some weird things I do. Or imagine. You see I dislike death...a lot. I'm not afraid of it. I've seen it. I've even dressed deceased loved ones for their burial. But I am filled with bitterness and sorrow for slow sad death by disease in particular- So when celebrities I like die of some sad painful drawn out illness I imagine that instead they died in a big heroic duel to the death with another celebrity who died around the same time. For instance Alan Rickman and David Bowie went out like crazy sexy pirates with swords. Now George Romero and Martin Landau had their blaze of glory, but I think they used axes.
