Since I don’t think I’ll be finishing any books in the next hour (especially considering I only just started a new one and have only read the 3 page long prologue), I may as well put up the monthly summary. Some day I hope to actually have links to reviews of at least most of the books by the end of the month, but with the way this year has been going so far, that may be a while… But [...]

Last night I finished reading Karin Lowachee’s The Gaslight Dogs so the poll for what to read next is now closed.
