13: The Throwback, by Tom Sharpe

Okay, Sharpe's humour is puerile and party really gross, but I can't help it, I chuckle every time. This was a re-read of a long-time favourite.

14: Dyslexia in the Second-Language Classroom, by Joanna Nijakowska

Uhm ... riveting read? Seriously though, it wasn't really as concise as I'd hoped too.

15: Speaking from among the Bones, by Alan Bradley
16: The Dead in their Vaulted Arches, by Alan Bradley

Okay, my overall judgment is that I really loved the turn these books have taken, however I think a bit more shadowing about some of these things might have been nice. That there was more to Harriet's death than met the eye I think was wonderfully set up (like, you think it's your average children's novel death off-scene until you realise that Harriet would have been climbing the mountains in the middle of a war why would she do that???) but couldn't they have made passing mention of Lena before? And that American pilot?

17: Going Postal, by Terry Pratchett
18: Making Money, by Terry Pratchett

When I found out about his death, I just had to re-read those because they might be among my favourites of his. He and his genius will be missed.

19: Takedown Twenty, by Janet Evanovich
20: Top-Secret Twenty-One, by Janet Evanovich

These are nice brain candy now and then, but I think the plots get *really* weird and the jokes really repetitive. Also could she just make up her mind about the boys?

21: Soulless, by Gail Carriger
22: Changeless, by Gail Carriger
23: Blameless, by Gail Carriger

You guys, I am so in love with these books. The author doesn't have the slightest clue about British titles and I couldn't care less. I just love love love them. I am going to get the final two from the library this afternoon. It's a bit pulp fiction-y (but in a steampunk!fantasy! manner) but such a refreshing read!
