September 2013 Books

#29: The Color of Magic by Terry Pratchett

#30: Lady Maggie’s Secret Scandal, by Grace Burrowes. Regency romance, one of the Free Friday books from Barnes & Noble.

#31: The Power of Habit, by Charles Duhrigg. Great book exploring the force that habits have in our lives and how to change them.

#32: Gakuen Alice #9 (re-read) Manga about a young girl in a school for kids with special powers.

#33: Goblin Quest, by Jim C Hines. Hilarious fantasy adventure novel about a goblin who gets caught up with a bunch of heroes and how he saves them all through cowardice, cunning, and more than a little bit of luck.

#34: Soulless, by Gail Carriger (a re-read) Steampunk novel about Alexia Trabotti, a Victorian-era spinster who can neutralize supernatural beings– much to the amusement of her vampire friends and a certain werewolf suitor!

#35: The Walking Dead, Vol. 18. This series is very good, but there are times when I read it and wonder how far can the atrocities go. I mean, with George R. R. Martin, you know that, eventually, the story will come to a climax and the world will explode or something. It feels like there’s an endgame in the making, so all the deaths of all your favorite characters will have some payoff, somewhere. With the Walking Dead…. it feels more like a series of hills and valleys, and every valley is littered with the (shambling) corpses of characters you’ve come to know and care about. We’re at the point now where I haven’t become attached to a new character since Michonne was introduced, and she showed up over 50 issues ago.

#36: Changeless, by Gail Carriger. Another re-read, book 2 in the Parasol Protectorate series.

#37: Blameless, by Gail Carriger. Book 3 in the Parasol Protectorate series. Also a re-read.
