Reading Update
Equal Rites (Discworld, #3)Equal Rites (Discworld #3) by Terry Pratchett. Whoa, Granny Weatherwax changes a LOT between this one and the next Witches book. Glad Nanny Ogg was added for the next Witches book, too. And what the heck happens to Esk, anyway?! I think she maybe gets mentioned in a Tiffany Aching book, but…
Witches Abroad (Discworld, #12)Witches Abroad (Discworld #12) by Terry Pratchett. Ah, yes, this was a proper Witches book! 🙂
Thief of Time (Discworld, #26)Thief of Time (Discworld #26) by Terry Pratchett. The Monks of Time, plus Susan and Death and Death of Rats!
EricEric (Discworld #9), Lords and Ladies (Discworld, #14)Lords and Ladies (Discworld #14), Moving PicturesMoving Pictures (Discworld #10) and Unseen Academicals (Discworld, #37)Unseen Academicals (Discworld #37) by Terry Pratchett. None of these were very memorable, but they were enjoyable. Well. Other than Eric. That was not very good at all.
Theatre of Cruelty (Discworld #14.5; City Watch #1.5)Theatre of Cruelty (Discworld #14.5) by Terry Pratchett. Online freebie. VERY SHORT.
Monstrous Regiment (Discworld, #31)Monstrous Regiment (Discworld #31) by Terry Pratchett. Loved this one, and not just because Commander Sam Vimes and the City Watch were lurking about backstage throughout.
Guards! Guards! (Discworld, #8; City Watch #1)Guards! Guards! (Discworld #8) and Men at Arms (Discworld, #15; City Watch #2)Men at Arms (Discworld #15) by Terry Pratchett. I read all of the other City Watch books before Guards! Guards!, the first City Watch book. :shrugs: It was great to see how things got to be how they were in later books! And then I had to reread Men at Arms immediately.
Mort (Death, #1; Discworld, #4)Mort (Discworld #4) by Terry Pratchett. Since I read the later Death books before this one, I knew the gist of this story, but I felt more sympathetic to Mort than I expected I would.
A Blink of the Screen: Collected Shorter FictionA Blink of the Screen: Collected Shorter Fiction by Terry Pratchett. I just read the Discworld stories…
Alice Payne Arrives (Alice Payne, #1)Alice Payne Arrives by Kate Heartfield. Very good book about a war being fought via time travel as two rival factions seek to wipe each other out by changing history. I would’ve liked a tidier ending, but at least there’s another book…
Under Attack (Underworld Detection Agency, #2)Under Attack, Under Suspicion (Underworld Detection Agency, #3)Under Suspicion, Under the Gun (Underworld Detection Agency, #4)Under the Gun, and Under A Spell (Underworld Detection Agency, #5)Under a Spell (Underworld Detective Agency 2-5) by Hannah Jayne. Really not sure why I kept reading these…

In which linkity providing links is the least surprising thing ever

Probably no linkity next week, as I won’t have any time to put it together.

Reading Update
Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, WitchGood Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch by Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman. I’ve been seeing so much about Good Omens on tumblr that I decided it was time for a reread. Delightful.
Anywhere, Anytime Art: Crayon: A colorful guide to drawing with crayon for artists on the go!Anywhere, Anytime Art: Crayon: A Colorful Guide to Drawing with Crayon for Artists on the Go by Monika Forsberg. Cute, but without much actual content.
The Journal Junkies Workshop: Visual Ammunition for the Art AddictThe Journal Junkies Workshop: Visual Ammunition for the Art Addict by Eric M Scott & David R Modler. Good introduction to visual journaling and how to get started. Wish I’d found this one when I was getting started – it has some techniques that would’ve been nice to have learned earlier.
Down Among the Sticks and Bones (Wayward Children, #2)Down Among the Sticks and Bones and Beneath the Sugar Sky (Wayward Children, #3)Beneath the Sugar Sky (Wayward Children 2-3) by Seanan McGuire. Good continuation of this series about children who’ve found doors into other worlds but are sent back to this one.
Snuff (Discworld, #39)Snuff (Discworld #39) by Terry Pratchett. In which Sam Vimes goes on a vacation to his wife’s family’s summer home and shenanigans ensue.
Under WrapsUnder Wraps (Underworld Detection Agency #1) by Hannah Jayne. Not the greatest – the characters didn’t seem consistent to me and it had a not-quite-a-cliffhanger-but-you-can-see-the-cliff-in-the-vicinity ending… but I’m still reading the next one, so!

Hogfather (Discworld, #20)Hogfather (Discworld #20) by Terry Pratchett. Death fills in for the Hogfather…
Labyrinth (Greywalker, #5)Labyrinth, Downpour (Greywalker #6)Downpour, Seawitch (Greywalker, #7)Seawitch, Possession (Greywalker, #8)Possession, and Revenant (Greywalker, #9)Revenant (Greywalker 5-9) by Kat Richardson. Good continuation of this urban fantasy series about a Seattle PI who can walk in the paranormal layer of reality known as the Grey.
Every Heart a Doorway (Wayward Children, #1)Every Heart a Doorway (Wayward Children #1) by Seanan McGuire. Strange and beautiful tale of a school for children who’ve gone through portals to other worlds, returned, and been stuck here.

Greywalker (Greywalker, #1)Greywalker, Poltergeist (Greywalker, #2)Poltergeist, Underground (Greywalker, #3)Underground, and Vanished (Greywalker, #4)Vanished (Greywalker 1-4) by Kat Richardson. Good urban fantasy series about a private investigator who, after being clinically dead for two minutes, finds herself drawn into the Grey – a world alongside ours, but filled with magic and the paranormal. The writing is very “noir” (choppy, declarative sentences in first person POV), which took me a while to settle into.
Things Are What You Make of Them: Life Advice for CreativesThings Are What You Make of Them: Life Advice for Creatives by Adam J Kurtz. What it says on the tin. Very short.
Monster Hunter International (Monster Hunter International, #1)International (Monster Hunter #1) by Larry Correia. B-movie monster hunting gun p0rn.
Feet of Clay (Discworld, #19)Feet of Clay (Discworld #19), Jingo (Discworld, #21)Jingo (Discworld #21), The Fifth Elephant (Discworld, #24)The Fifth Elephant (Discworld #24), Night Watch (Discworld, #29)Night Watch (Discworld #29), and Thud! (Discworld, #34)Thud! (Discworld #34) by Terry Pratchett. I love Sam Vines and the Night Watch.
Reaper Man (Discworld, #11)Reaper Man (Discworld #11) and Soul Music (Discworld, #16)Soul Music (Death #16) by Terry Pratchett. In the first, Death gets fired and has an existential crisis. In the second, Death doesn’t get fired and has an existential crisis.

Dreams of Shreds and TattersDreams of Shreds and Tatters by Amanda Downum. I am not really sure why I finished this – I certainly didn’t care for any of the characters and never engaged with the plot.

And I reread books 7-10 of Seanan McGuire’s October Daye series…
