A Letter of Mary by Laurie R. King (#3 in the Mary Russell series)

What did you recently finish reading?

The Making of the Fittest: DNA and the Ultimate Forensic Record of Evolution by Sean B. Carroll (audiobook). I liked the parts where he was talking about how scientists are finding evidence of evolution via gene sequencing and other studies of the details of chromosomes and DNA. But there wasn't enough of that. I didn't like the parts where he talked about how and why creationists are wrong—I agree that they're wrong, and maybe it's actually important for every popular science book about biology and evolution to make this point at length, but I am bored with reading about it.

Where Angels Fear to Tread by Thomas E. Sniegoski (#3 in the Remy Chandler series). Urban fantasy where the protagonist is an angel who has chosen to pass as human. Very broad strokes of comic book style horror with some characters who have names from the Bible, although the similarities pretty much end there. This one felt more broadly horrific than the previous two. It wasn't all that well written, but I gobbled it, and then felt vaguely queasy afterward.

What books did you acquire this week?

Picture book about the White Pass Scenic Railway tour in Skagway, Alaska

I wish I could even articulate my thoughts as I read it. I kind of have to just steep myself in it and see what comes out the other side.
