Next up is An Unkindness of Magicians by Kat Howard. I picked this up off the shelf in the book store on a whim and know nothing other than what the back cover said and I've already forgotten what that was. Something about magic, I bet.

@benhamill that was good! Can’t wait to hear what you think.

@edebill Oh cool. Feels like less of a risk if someone else has even ever heard of it. Heh.

@benhamill I have forgotten everything about the plot, but that is par for the course.

@benhamill Hm. First guess, magicians have a strong association (whether magical or metaphorical) with ravens at some point in the book.

Second guess, that's just the group-noun for magicians in that world, just as Discworld makes "war" the original plural of "wizard".

@qwertystop Yeah. I think the second is the theory I like. Maybe they're all assholes? I guess we'll see.

@Elizabeth_Fitz Oh whew. You're the second person to say that. It could have been some horrible bullshit based on how I selected it. Heh. Thanks!
