I'm still reading Dresden files (nope, still not finished), now on "Side jobs". I cheated, and first jumped right to the end, because it's got a short story with Murphy after certain things happens in "Changes". Still debating with myself whether to read the rest of the book, or hopping straight to the next. I'll probably finish it, if I know myself right...

I read Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel - another interesting apocalypse story. Then I read Charlie Chaplin - A Brief Life. I think I'm going to stay away from biographies for the moment - too depressing.
Now I'm reading Undress Me in the Temple of Heaven by Susan Jane Gilman - in 1986 after graduating from college, she and her friend went on a world tour with their first stop Hong Kong and the People's Republic of China (PRC had recently opened to western tourists). So it's interesting to read about 2 people trying to navigate in a culture where they can't communicate, are used to eating western junk food, etc. etc. I like her honest depiction of how entitled they were and that they sometimes behaved badly.
2/25 - I started This House Is Haunted by John Boyne - a Victorian ghost story.
