July, 2019

July 6th, 2019, 2:09 p.m. - Now that I think about it, I don't know why it was called Middlegame

28. Middlegame (Seanan McGuire)
I'd been meaning to read some of McGuire's books for a while, but I thought I would start with her Wayward Children series. However, when I saw this on the shelf at the library, I figured I should try it. Good call, me! The science-y stuff lost me, but I really enjoyed it. McGuire writes the kind of sci-fi/fantasy I find really accessible.

Up next: The Last House Guest (Megan Miranda)

July 13th, 2019, 11:54 a.m. - I'm not sure she'll ever repeat her success of All the Missing Girls

29. The Last House Guest (Megan Miranda)
It's slow and has too much going on and started to lose me in the middle. But other than that, it's great!

Up next: There There (Tommy Orange)

July 14th, 2019, 4:08 p.m. - "I have a plan." "I am not going to break into the agent's house and put my manuscript under her pillow." "...Okay then. I have a plan B"

So You Think You Can Dance – "Judges' Auditions 5": Once again, everyone was so good! Minus points for Nigel's absolutely inappropriate, completely staged question about where Mariah's father is. Come on. Rating: 4 pies in the face I have for anyone who bullies Eddie

Jane the Virgin – "Chapter 96": This was my favorite episode of this so-far lackluster season. I lost it when the doctor told Petra that she hadn't actually approved of having Magda taken off life support by just texting a plug emoji and a thumbs up. Rating: 4 moments of screen time Xo and Alba got this week, combined

iZombie – "Night and the Zombie City": Excellent premise, so-so execution. Also, who cares about Don E. and Darcy? Rating: 3 drinks too many for Peyton
