The sequel to The Rise and Fall of Dodo- a fun time-travel romp but I was disappointed that characters from the first book was MIA.
The Circus Infinite by Khan Wong
A circus in outer space with a diverse group of people and an asexual hero how could I not read this
I loved this book with a world filled with strong, fabulous women

Other books not reviewed on my blog
Moonflower Murders by Anthony Horowtiz
I loved this cosyish murder mystery set in a posh hotel in the countryside and I did not guess who the murderer was. The bonus is there is a book within this book that is equally good!
Infallible Justice and Echo Murder by Laura Lasko
These urban fantasies were easy, enjoyable but predictable reads.
Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Start up by John Carreyrou
I had to read this book after watching The Dropout. This could easily be science fiction with a fantasy book villains but in the case the truth is stranger than fiction.
