These Old Shades-
Devil's Cub-
An Infamous Army - Georgette Heyer - Read them all together, and the last one for the first time. Heyer, as Heyer. I skipped about 1/3 of the last book, as I am not interested in troop movements....

The Lace Reader - Brunonia Barry - standard-genre fiction; not bad; didn't see the twist coming.

Zen Flesh, Zen Bones - okay, zen makes no sense to me, and that is okay.

Gulp - Mary Roach - Excellent nonfiction about the alimentary canal. Highly recommend.

Quiverfull - Katherine Joyce - a bit drier than I'd expected, but then, I read this type of blog...

Summer Falls - Melody Malone - eh, if I'd paid more I'd've expected more.... Doctor Who tie-in

The Winter Palace - Eva Stachniak - interesting fictional account of Catherine the Great's rise to power. I like her much, much better knowing a bit more about her, and it's nice to see non-Tudor historical fiction.

A Betrayal in Winter -
An Autumn War -
The Price of Spring - Daniel Abraham - Very good series, fully fleshed characters. A timescale that allows for repercussions of actions.

Small Gods - Terry Pratchett (reread) - almost as good as I remembered it.

The Foundling - Georgette Heyer - a silly Heyer. Amusing and fun.

A Blunt Instrument - Georgette Heyer - decent mystery novel.

Without a Summer - Mary Robinette Kowal - Third in her series, and very, very good.

The Last Vanity
Bowman Strikes Again - Hartley Howard - Decent mysteries of the hardboiled variety. I won't pay full price for them, but for $2.99 not bad.

Overdressed - Elizabeth Cline - fascinating look at our clothing and where it comes from. Highly recommend.
