    All Systems Red (The Murderbot Diaries #1) by Martha Wells
    The Smartest Book in the World by Greg Proops
    Only Human (Themis Files #3) by Sylvain Neuvel

TMiaHM was an interesting book from the perspective of when it was written. The computer kept reminding me of Data from TNG, though I wonder if that's because we're watching S1 right now.

ASR was more of a novella, and I think all four books in one volume would be a book-sized book. It was a different take on robots than I've seen, though I'm not sure on the ending. I'll have to read #2 to see.

If you've ever listened to the Smartest Man in the World podcast you know what the book is about. If not, it's about lots of things that Greg likes and finds interesting. One thing I noticed is that his podcast isn't about those things anymore, and I wonder if it's because of politics.

Only Human was a merely good finish to a book series I enjoyed. There's giant robots and aliens and a really cool government agent in the series but this book was missing said cool G-man. Kind of a let down in the series, almost King-ish in the ending coming from left field and changing what you understood about the story so far.

    Peter Rabbit (2018)
    Paddington 2 (2017)
    The Greatest Showman (2017)
    Murder on the Orient Express (2017)

Amazingly I have not watched a movie since The Greatest Showman. I lied, I was just reminded that I watched the Orient Express movie. I liked it, but I wasn't a fan of how it started out like a comedy, turned into a mystery, and then was a comedy every now and then. It just seemed inconsistent.

I liked it, but I wanted to like it more than I did. I had high hopes because of Gaiman, to the point where they may have created some unreasonable expectations. I liked Strange's storyline in it but wanted more out of Peter Parker's storyline. Overall, good but not great.

I got this book b/c my 9yo son is into graphic novels about social awkward girls. (See everything by Raina Telgemeier, including her adaptions of the Baby Sitters Club books.) My toxic masculinity is obviously bleeding into my children. But everyone in my family picked it up and read it one sitting. It's a great graphic novel.

Not sure if this would apply, but I like the series:

https://www.goodreads.com/series/99144-hereville

Quote:
Spunky, strong-willed eleven-year-old Mirka Herschberg isn’t interested in knitting lessons from her stepmother, or how-to-find-a-husband advice from her sister, or you-better-not warnings from her brother. There’s only one thing she does want: to fight dragons!

Granted, no dragons have been breathing fire around Hereville, the Orthodox Jewish community where Mirka lives, but that doesn’t stop the plucky girl from honing her skills. She fearlessly stands up to local bullies. She battles a very large, very menacing pig. And she boldly accepts a challenge from a mysterious witch, a challenge that could bring Mirka her heart’s desire: a dragon-slaying sword! All she has to do is find—and outwit—the giant troll who’s got it!

A delightful mix of fantasy, adventure, cultural traditions, and preteen commotion, Hereville will captivate middle-school readers with its exciting visuals and entertaining new heroine.

Thank you for the recommendation. We got it at the library, but I'm sad to say it didn't hit.

My older son, however, has read that whole series.

    The Last Town (Wayward Pines #3) by Blake Crouch
    Holidays on Ice by David Sedaris

I had a lot of dead time on the computer at work for the past two weeks so I could get through a lot. I also had four separate 4-hour drives so I was able to get through some audio books. Joe Hill is a good writer, but Horns was a lot to take in. No one in that book was a good person, really. So much negativity, and I was already in a pretty bad place, so I had a rough go of it. I think I'm staying away from his books for awhile.

Wayward Pines started out good but devolved once you got further into the series. Book three was only decent, and there were a few plot points I was waiting to see developed but they just fizzled out instead. And that ending? WTF.

David Sedaris...that's the first of his books I've read and I had to read it a second time once my snark meter was fully powered up. I was reading them a little too earnestly for them to make me anything other than annoyed at him. Once I was on the same wavelength the stories were much better.

    The Greatest Showman (2017)
    Murder on the Orient Express (2017)
    Solo (2018)
    Annihilation (2018)
    Incredibles 2 (2018)

Annihilation was OK, and differed from the book in some odd choices by the writer/director dude. "He wrote it like a half-remembered dream of reading the book"? What kind of new-age BS is that? The bear scene though...yeah.

Incredibles 2 was good but was hampered by Pixar's go-to bad guy formula. Not great, but a really good sequel all the same.

Started The Man from UNCLE but at about the 35 minute mark no one was paying attention besides me and it was slow anyway so I stopped it, mostly because there was still 1.5 hours of movie left and, like I said, no one else was watching it. Played Mario Kart instead.

edit: I can't believe I forgot I saw Solo. I need to update my list more frequently.

I had a some more of that dead time this week - I was able to finish those last five books in the last five days. Not that it was hard considering I finished the Rucka book in a couple hours...God that was a bad book. I'm going to blame it on the subject instead of the writer though because I've read some of his other stuff and he's not that bad.

I like the Hap and Leonard book, I'm going to try and watch the TV show now. The Burton book alternated between shit and alright so I'm not too sure I want to read the next one.
