So, I just discovered thanks to the #fediverse, that Dracula, which is written as a series of journal entries, starts its first entry on the 3rd of May! So, for something different, I am going to first play catch up (today being the 5th of May) and then read the rest of the book in "real time", reading each journal entry on the matching calendar day!

Ancestral Night (Hardcover, 2019, Gallery / Saga Press) 3 stars

A book where I found the ideas it explored far more interesting than the story and characters. It explores gender, sexuality, personality, free will and even memory in the context of a society where those things can be altered at will, sometimes against ones will. That part I found compelling, and unique. The story itself was fun and engaging, but I think I prefer my stories to be a bit more gritty and with more greys and less black and white.
