35: The Thief of Time, by Terry Pratchett

This was one of the Pratchetts which for some reason I hadn't read before, even though my library had it. I enjoyed it tremendously. It was awesome all round.

36: A Discovery of Witches, by Deborah Harkness
37: Shadow of Night, by Deborah Harkness
38: The Book of Life, by Deborah Harkness

Marie was right, it was soooo worth it to read it all in order. It just got progressively better and it paid off to know exactly who was what and where and all that stuff. I also enjoyed that it was not all-happily-paired-off at the ending although why no love for poor Fernando??? I so wanted Fernando to find love again!!! And Gallowglass. Now I want a sequel about Fernando and Gallowglass finding love. Not with each other of course because Fernando is practically his father. They could be something like time-travelling detectives finding loves for each other. In conclusion you all need to read this especially Shem because there are gay vampires and demons.

39: Mayhem, by Sarah Pinborough

I feel sorry for this book. It was such a neat and nifty idea, albeit very gruesome - explaining the Ripper murders by an old evil residing in London. And there really were good points and the author's writing has much potential. But it would have benefitted so much from very ruthless editing, not only to weed out all the wrongly-placed commata, but also to give it a better flow and more narrative cohesion. The way it is, I wouldn't really recommend it because it just feels awkward and rambling at times.
