    Football: Sarri state of affairs

    500 for Zlatan. And quite the goal at that.

    YA Hugo Nominations, 2019 Dublin

    So, fan art Gabriella Bujdoso covers An Ember in the Ashes, Throne of Glass and ACOTAR, A Darker Shade of Magic, Harry Potter and Grishaverse series among other things. This excellent version of Nikolai Lantsov , (technically not fan art but still awesome)

    Good call @lady narcissa! I'll keep this is mind. Sabaa Tahir, Leigh Bardugo and V.E. Schwab all have some incredible fan art they repost on Instagram.

    August '18 Reading- (Insert Clever Subtitle)

    I finished Spinning Silver and I loved it a lot. The three female leads were wholly different in personality and motivation and all were very strong characters. The ending had me in tears. I needed the charm of it all. For a change of pace I listened to The Trespasser by Tana French during my commute and it was great. I've now read 4/6 Dublin Murder Squad books and it's my second favorite after In the Woods. But based on the Introduction of Frank Mackey in The Secret Place I expect The Faithful Place will be a decent story/main character as well. I'm now onto Ruth Ware's In a Dark Dark Wood and I think I've sussed out the culprit though I've about a third to go. And I greatly dislike the narrator and side characters except for maybe Nina. It's not bad if a little repetitive - restating things/ideas in spots to keep up the mystery.

    What is the publishing window for consideration? I'm about ready to get a supporting membership solely for this award.

    But there's an assumption being made that there wasn't political agendas in a field of white men. For 60ish years, the Hugo always went to best white dude?

    https://bleacherreport.com/articles/2791455-i-find-it-very-difficult-to-watch-why-mlb-greats-think-baseballs-in-trouble Interesting article with former players talking about how baseball has changed for the worse.
  12. On Friday Netflix dropped To All The Boys I Loved Before based on the novel by Jenny Han. Just finished watching it and it's super charming. The two leads are superb and I hope Netflix follows up with the second and third book.

    Urban Fantasy/Paranormal Romance v. 3.0

    I've been flipping around looking for a new book and/or series to try out and after browsing some Best Of lists I've started the first book in the Lords of the Underworld series by Gena Showalter called The Darkest Night. I'm a few chapters in and it had potential, I guess. Each book features one of these tormented immortals, with the whole gang factoring into the overall story. We'll see. The other book is like this weird mix of Outlander and 50 Shades of Grey. It's called The Highlander's Witch by a first time author named Jennifer France. Also not terrible a few chapters in but who knows.
