December 10: Spellcloaked by Stephanie Burgis. I think it’s too long ago that I read the other Harwood Spellbook books because it’s hard to get back into the world, I feel like I have no reference. (Well written though.)
The Invisible Bisexual by S.L. Huang and Frequently Asked Questions About the Portals at Frank’s Late-Night Starlite Drive-In by Kristen Koopman, in It Gets Even Better. Both excellent. Nothing nasty in either and much wonderful in both.
December 9: (intermittently for the last couple of weeks, it’s too heady to read all in one go) What If? Serious Scientific Answers to Absurd Hypothetical Questions by Randall Munroe. Exactly what it says on the tin. So much fun. One pet peeve: Randall says the sun will finally set on the British Empire when there’s a total solar eclipse on the Pitcairn Islands, but it’s not necessary for an eclipse for the sun to set!
December 7: Cat Among the Pigeons by Agatha Christie. Because the Direnayu book is very dense and I wanted something simpler as a pillow book. A real comfort read; this time I didn’t have to pay extra attention to specific people as fanfic-writing material. It gets better on rereading (though perhaps not on frequent rereading).
December 5: Seven Sisters by Celia Lake, #7 of Mysterious Charm. The best of the lot until now. Too bad it’s also the end of the series. The ones I haven’t been able to get in epub yet can hardly be as good as this one, and the premise of the next series doesn’t appeal to me as much.
