Vulture Peak - John Burdett The series pivoted into the absurd. It's become grotesque with absurd pseudo philosophical musings on Buddhism, the differing viewpoints of the east and west, and extreme characters. Too bad. I liked Jitpleecheep.
Daytripper - Fábio Moon, Gabriel Bá, Craig Thompson, Dave Stewart, Sean Konot Wow!
Storm Front - Jim Butcher At first, it felt generic. Gets pretty good midway and I'll probably pick the next in the series.
We Can Fix It: A Time Travel Memoir - Jess Fink (Artist) Cute

Crazy Rich Asians

Crazy Rich Asians - Kevin Kwan Fun. Enjoyable. Satirical enough not to fall too much into pure chick-lit.
So You Want to Play Go? Level 2 - Jonathan Hop Conversational style, easy going. I enjoyed it. Will need to see if it helped improve my game.
The Ocean at the End of the Lane: A Novel - Neil Gaiman Wow! Can Gaiman write! The only reason it loses a star for me is that I'm a bit tired of the little kid misunderstood by adults that can see things they can't trope. I know this is unfair, a little like complaining that there are dwarves in the hobbit, but my reviews are always deeply subjective and depending on when and where I read the book. I listened to the audiobook, and Gaiman's narration is a joy.
The Forever War - Joe Haldeman Older sci-fi seems to be more about the time it was written than the future. However, after somewhere around the mid-point it becomes really really good.
The Name of the Wind - Patrick Rothfuss ...and a half. Starts too slow and really generic but surprises by the end.
