What are you currently reading?

Audiobook: Keeper of the King, P.N. Elrod & Nigel Bennett. Arthurian in some way that has yet to become fully apparent.

Paper books:
Everyday Language of White Racism, Jane Hill. Anthropology. It's really excellent.

Ebook on my iPad: Still picking my way through Captain Vorpatril's Alliance by Lois McMaster Bujold.

Ebook on my smart phone: The Big Meow, Diana Duane. This is the 3d Cat Wizards book, the one she self-published in installments. Still liking it a lot, but I mostly only read it in cars and doctors' offices so I'm not getting through it very fast (which means not too many doctors' offices. Yay!).

What did you recently finish reading?

Audiobook: Agents of Light and Darkness (Nightside, #2) by Simon R. Green. Semi-humorous, semi-serious, enjoyably over the top. I liked this book better than the first novel in the series, which had a lot of body horror, which isn't my thing really (I just don't get scared by mucus!). In this one we get to know the characters better, and Taylor gets really obsessed with [SPOILER]. But I didn't like the ending because [SPOILERS]. I also didn't like the "character broken by [SPOILER]" plot points. Those were the wrong sorts of things to make a semi-humorous horror novel about. I bought the next one in the series.

Audiobook: Undead Sublet by Molly Harper. Novella from the collection The Undead in My Bed. In the same setting as the Nice Girls Don't series. Molly Harper does "sardonic first person paranormal" and "small town in the US South" really, really well.

What do you think you’ll read next?

I want to read An Exchange of Hostages by Susan R. Matthews because she's going to be a guest of honor at FogCon.
