Burning Bright - Tracy Chevalier - lost interest and put it down.

Detection Unlimited - Georgette Heyer - not a bad mystery.

Ex Utero - Laurie Foos - I think I was in the wrong mood for a woman who loses her
uterus. Literally. It sneaks out or something. The tone of the book just rubbed me
wrong, and I put it down.

Three Parts Dead
Two Serpents Rise
Full Fathom Five - Max Gladstone - very good reads, and a lifesaver because I was
travelling and could distract myself instead of losing my temper.

Last Night's Scandal - Loretta Chase - decent romance.

Night Broken - Patricia Briggs - latest in the Mercy Thompson series, which I like very
much. As I do this book.

Slave Trade - Susan Wright - Surprisingly little sex for a book about sex slaves. A sort
of mil-sf humasn against aliens plot. First of a trilogy. Not bad. Won't be keeping it,
though.

The Squire's Tale - Gerald Morris - Arthurian legend. Forgettable.

Survey Ship - Marion Zimmer Bradley - 5 or 6 late adolescent people leave Earth in a
survey ship, never to return. The entire book takes place before they leave the solar
system, and it's all psychological. It passed the time.

Currently reading:
The Warmth of Other Suns - Isabel Wilkerson

Eeeks, having finally finished writing after more than 5 years (published October 2015), The American Slave Coast: A History of the Slave-breeding Industry. an history of the U.S. through the study of the capitalized enslaved womb from colonial era through to Emancipation -- there's something very disconcerting (to me! let me haste to add) to read: "Slave Trade - Susan Wright - Surprisingly little sex for a book about sex slaves." There was nothing at all sexy about the sex slave traffiking that went on by the slave traders of the time. I've had to read their correspondence with each about their most "expensive and valuable articles," which first they passed among themselves until they tired of them and put them on the market. This is some of the most revolting content, to put it mildly, I have ever had to read.

Isabel Wilkerson's book is splendid.

Love, C.
