May 2017 reading:

21. Kicking It, edited by Faith Hunter and Kalayna Price (349 pages)
With urban fantasy short stories centered around footwear, this anthology features some writers I've read, and some new ones to look into. Quite enjoyable.

22. Just a Geek, by Wil Wheaton (267 pages)
This is a memoir focusing on Wil Wheaton's journey away and back to loving Star Trek. I loved how he was honest about his anxieties, and I could absolutely relate. I also enjoyed his exploration of his growth. I started this figuring I'd read a couple chapters before bed. At 4am I finished it. Awesome read.

23. A Dog's Journey, by W. Bruce Cameron (336 pages)
I picked this up from the library without realizing it was a sequel, and I already know I want to go back and read the first. Buddy meets Clarity and saves her life twice, bonding with her before she is taken away, before he gets cancer and dies... and when she comes back as Molly and finds Clarity again, she knows her purpose. This had me sobbing in places. Such a good book.
