Reading notes, week 30

by , under books, reading notes

July 22: An Unwilling Heart, Young Wizards fanfic. I clicked on it accidentally on the Kobo and skimmed about half of it before I realised that yes, I did want to read it. Somewhat painful but very good.

A Wizard’s Guide to Defensive Baking by T. Kingfisher. Oh my. “Baking’s not exactly a high-mortality profession”. (Spoiler: some people and an already undead horse do die, and the protagonist has more than one narrow escape.) I need to read it again soon and blog.

July 21: Deep Wizardry by Diane Duane, both to indulge my Young Wizards craving and as paired reading for Tone of Voice. Wow. Gets better on each reread (but needs some time in between; I think I skipped this one last time).

July 19: Why Didn’t They Ask Evans? Really fun non-series Agatha Christie. I’d read it before but didn’t remember much so it was like a new book! Can’t be hedgehogged to take calibre to it to put different people’s dialogue on new lines instead of all in one paragraph, but it did make it occasionally hard to read and often very breathless.
