I did so much lazy reading over Easter, it was wonderful.

24: Der Fälscher, by Cay Rademacher

I mentioned earlier that I wasn't that invested in this series but I at least wanted to read the last book. It was decent, but not that intriguing.

25: The Heist, by Janet Evanovich & Lee Goldberg

Okay, I said I had had enough of Evanovich for the moment, but this was brand-new at the library and it was pure relaxing brain candy, like a good action movie. I like that the heroine here is really competent, unlike Stephanie.

26: Heartless, by Gail Carriger

More Werewolves! Vampires! Alexia!

27: Die Engelmacherin, by Camilla Läckberg

This is one of those Scandinavian crime series that I really liked when it first started, but by now I'm just confused about how many houses and people with a dark and mysterious past there can be in a tiny Swedish coastal town, and when did mysterious Nazi links get *so* tiresome? I don't think I'll be searching out any of her further books.

28: Timeless, by Gail Carriger

Last book in the Alexia series! *sob* but I liked how it tied up so many things I hadn't even realised were loose plot points from the first books. Also, Biffy got romance! Yay! But there's one thing I don't get - maybe someone of you knows (Meg, you read them, right?) Why did the Chancellor need Alexia or Prudence to kill Matakara? Couldn't he just have staked her? Conall killed Walsingham by staking. Or if she's on constant blood supply, just take away the blood? Or doesn't that work for vampire queens? Because otherwise ... the plot of the book would be pretty pointless.

29: Scheunenherzen, by Axel Bauer

This was a sarcastic take on a very popular TV format in Germany (Farmer Needs Wife) and it was rather funny, though after my sister's rave review I'd expected a little more.
