The first two Terry Pratchetts were re-reads, so that I was up to snuff for the third installment of the Tiffany Aching series. Love it!, although the third was was more thoughtful and therefore dragged a bit in parts. Pratchett's not that great at thoughtful.

I also re-read Cold Magic just because. I love that book!

Am getting a little bored with Ilona Andrews' Kate Daniels series. I'm sure it pays the rent, but her Edge novels are so much better.

I got completely addicted to Carrie Vaughn's Kitty Norville series, and am surprised that she was able to maintain it for so long. But it did finally jump the shark with Kitty's Big Trouble. Yeah, that's right, "Big Trouble" as in Little China. This one takes place mostly in San Francisco's Chinatown.

But I totally loved her YA alt-history dystopish Voices of Dragons. I SO hope there's going to be a sequel, but it would be great, also, if there wasn't.

Wrote a review of Leche in Hyphen magazine. Otherwise I just don't have much to say about it. That's not a bad thing. It's just something I took in, enjoyed, spun out thoughts on, etc. There's a difference between a book that makes you think about things, and a book that makes you think about it. This was the former.
