Reading notes, week 41

by , under books, reading notes

October 9: Magic at Lyme, or, The Midnight Company by emily_grant. Eleven-year-old Kate, already spectacularly clumsy! Aunt Elizabeth’s aversion to magic explained! Gunpowder, Treason and Plot!

October 10: In which Rabbit has a baking kerfuffle and Tigger gets out of trouble with honey by redsnake05. Cozy Winnie the Pooh fic.

For Always and Always and Always by Katherine. A Just So Story about the Kitten who plays by herself!

October 11: Mrs. McGinty’s Dead by Agatha Christie. I don’t know why I hadn’t read this before! It’s a really good Poirot full of red herrings, and fortunately none of the actually nice people are guilty. (Some of the not-so-nice people are guilty, but most of them of trivial things.)

October 12: Some stories from the Untitled Goose Exchange. Fun, but most of them not memorable enough to list separately.

This one, however, Origin by Meatball42, is memorable!

And so is Goose Tidies Up, also by Meatball42, in which the Goose tries the KonMari method.

The Hunting of the HONK by MiraMira. It is a lovely day in Narnia to go questing after a horrible goose. (With AU ending, which I didn’t notice the first time around.)

October 14: Elephants Can Remember by Agatha Christie. This time I liked Ariadne Oliver (this is not always the case, not even in the same book on different readings). Also Poirot is only semi-obnoxious. And good people are good, and the ending was almost a surprise again after almost two years.
