What I watched: Halifax: Retribution, a sequel series to Australian television crime drama Halifax f.p. (1994 to 2002) which featured the cases of Doctor Jane Halifax, a forensic psychiatrist. The reboot focuses on random sniper attacks within Melbourne, racist gangs, aging rock stars and groupies, and burned out police persons. It keeps my attention because of the plethora of possible suspects, the side dramas, and the Australian setting. Here is the trailer:
What I read: Oh, a zillion books. I completed the King’s Watch series; read the newly released Hessians and Hellhounds (Manners and Monsters Book 6) by Tilly Wallace; sped through Sailor’s Jewel, the newest book form the Charms of Albion series by Celia Lake; and thoroughly enjoyed The Suck Stops Here: A Paranormal Women’s Fiction novel (First Fangs Club Book 4) by Kristen Painter. The First Fangs premise is farcical but is treated with such realism that the reader goes along for the ride. Here it is: the middle-aged with adult children ex-wife of a mafia don who faked his death is turned into a vampire, becomes vampire of queen of New Jersey, survives a creature war, collects friend and employees (including vampires, witches, reapers, gargoyles, wear wolves, fey, and banshees), and wear fabulous high-end clothes, jewels, and shoes. What’s not to like?
What I listened to this week: Spotify let me down this week – the algorithm failed with their recommendations – it happens. Out of 30 suggestions I liked three: Lovely – Binder&Krieglstein; boerd feat. Stella Explorer – Before We Drown; and Mcbaise – Water Slide (feat. Kamggarn).
