Reading notes, week 24

June 13: The Art of Effective Dreaming by Gillian Polack. (I want to read more by Gillian Polack! I want to read EVERYTHING by Gillian Polack!) Oh wow. It starts slowly, and doesn’t pick up much speed along the way, but that’s not a bad thing at all! The protagonist is very relatable, with all

Yuletide is here, SO MUCH FANFIC. I’ll make a rec post after author reveal so I won’t have to look up everything again (not that I won’t want to reread it, but perhaps not all at once). December 30: Passage by bigsunglasses. Novelette-length Goblin Emperor fanfic, wonderful budding friendship between Idra Drazhar and Paru Tethimin.

Crooked House by Agatha Christie. DNF, because I looked up if the nice people would have a happy ending (can’t stand unhappy endings right now) and

May 2: So You Want to Be a Wizard, because I already had it open and noticed it while I was looking for some fanfic to read while cooling down from One Good Knight. Young Wizards is always a nice comfort read, and it might give me enough circumstance to finish the space meerkat story.

February 29: Gaudeamus Igitur, Maturae Dum Sumus, Lord Peter Wimsey fanfic (though he hardly figures in it: most of his role is taken by his nephew). This time I skipped all the explicit Jerry/Bunter parts and read only the sweet but somewhat fraught Miss Lydgate/Miss Climpson parts. Still, it’s a rehash of Gaudy Night as
