Waiting for Friday

Last night's Arrow was good  -- setting things up for next week.

And it ended on a freaking cliffhanger.

I started a SUPER good book last night.

 ILLUMINAE by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff. 1st of 2 in series. SFF and a mystery of sorts. 

This morning, Kady thought breaking up with Ezra was the hardest thing she’d have to do. This afternoon, her planet was invaded. The year is 2575, and two rival megacorporations are at war over a planet that’s little more than a speck at the edge of the universe. Now with enemy fire raining down on them, Kady and Ezra—who are barely even talking to each other—are forced to evacuate with a hostile warship in hot pursuit.But their problems are just getting started. A plague has broken out and is mutating with terrifying results; the fleet’s AI may actually be their enemy; and nobody in charge will say what’s really going on. As Kady hacks into a web of data to find the truth, it’s clear the only person who can help her is the ex-boyfriend she swore she’d never speak to again.

Published in 2015, it has 605 pages. Told through a fascinating dossier of hacked documents—including emails, maps, files, IMs, medical reports, interviews, and more. It needs to be read in the book form (not Kindle) because the docs are recreated on the page. I love stuff like that. 

Not much on TV tonight, maybe 60 Days In that I'll pretend to watch but really be reading. Though at 8 is a new episode of Chicago Med that I got hooked on recently. Bah.

"Deliver Us":

A complicated case centers on a sick family. Also, Dr. Charles asks Sarah to conduct his daughter's psych evaluation, Will and Dr. Manning spend more time together at work, and Dr. Choi puts on the pressure when a residency slot opens.

And the tie in to Arrow here is Dr. Rhodes (above) who was on the first season of Arrow as Tommy Merlyn. That's what got my attention to the medical show in the first place. Double bah.

Have a great day 

Much love,
PK the Bookeemonster
