Lily and the Octopus by Steven Rowley

I must be a little off my game. This book got rave reviews and seemed like it would be an entertaining diversion but...once again a whole portion of this book is devoted to delusion and has fever dream like quality. Others seem to love this aspect. I mean I get it NO ONE likes to lose a beloved pet to a tumour--I've gone through two such experiences myself. I'm a cat person--maybe dog-person relationships are different---but I'm sticking with cats and a less delusional take on the loss of my beloved Frank and Zelda.

Slow Horses by Mick Herron

This is the second Slough House book that I have read, previously I read and really enjoyed Dead Lions. This one does not disappoint. I heard it is being made into TV series by one of the streaming services. I really want to watch that as well.
