Self-Care by Leigh Stein



The Plinko Bounce by Martin Clark


Very clever plot with a nice twist. The narrator was not create, especially with the child's voice, but the book was solid.

The Dispatcher by John Scalzi


Good set up, decent novella.

Murder by Other Means by John Scalzi


Interesting premise, but the first one was more interesting.

Counting the Cost by Jill Duggar


I've always been vaguely embarrassed by my interest in the Duggars.

How I Won a Nobel Prize by Julius Taranto


What if everyone who had been cancelled moved to an island where an eccentric billionaire ran a libertarian college?

What if a not-cancelled, not-libertarian woman physicist moved there because her colleague did?

This book was great fun, with a fantastic twist.

The Sunset Years of Agnes Sharp by Leonie Swann


It almost seems like "quirky old people solving a mystery" is becoming its own genre. I have certainly read some very funny, very engaging books in that niche. This one definitely qualifies. Recommended.
