An Open Spook (Haunted Guesthouse #4.5) by EJ Copperman. This one’s from the POV of Alison’s mom.
The Thrill of the Haunt (Haunted Guesthouse #5) and Inspector Specter (Haunted Guesthouse #6) by EJ Copperman. Less than a week later and I remember nothing about these. πŸ˜€
Ghost in the Wind (Haunted Guesthouse #7) by EJ Copperman. DNF because second-hand embarrassment.

Hot mess o’ linkity, take two

I am not even sure where my linkity time went this evening. If you find it, would you send it back, please?!?!

Reading Update
Nerdy, Shy, and Socially Inappropriate: A User Guide to an Asperger Life by Cynthia Kim. reread. This is probably one I’ll reread every few years.
Night of the Living Deed (Haunted Guesthouse #1) by EJ Copperman. Good mystery in which Alison discovers, while converting her Victorian mansion into a guesthouse, that she she can see ghosts – ghosts who want her to help them figure out who killed them.
An Uninvited Guest (Haunted Guesthouse #2) by EJ Copperman. Good continuation of the series – Alison now has her PI license, but she didn’t really intend to actually use it…
Old Haunts (Haunted Guesthouse #3) by EJ Copperman. Alison’s ex husband shows up unexpectedly, and the two resident ghosts turn out to have unfinished business of their own.
A Wild Ghost Chase (Haunted Guesthouse #3.5) by EJ Copperman. Ok short – told from PI ghost Paul’s perspective for a change.
Chance of a Ghost (Haunted Guesthouse #4) by EJ Copperman. Alison’s (living) mother asks her to help a dramatic ghost of her acquaintance figure out who killed him.

Hot mess o’ linkity

Erm, yes, I perhaps dawdled away most of my linkity time, so this is going to be a hot mess. πŸ˜€

Reading Update
The Case of the Felonious Friend (Asperger’s Mystery #3) by EJ Copperman & Jeff Cohen. Pretty good addition to the series – although, as with most amateur sleuth mysteries I read, the interaction of said sleuth and the police seem extremely improbable to me.
The Case of the Absentee Father (Asperger’s Mystery #4) by EJ Copperman & Jeff Cohen. This one didn’t quite gel for me. And speaking of improbably interactions between amateur sleuth and police… I just can’t picture the police of Los Angeles reacting as they did in this book.

Reading Update
The Furthest Station (Peter Grant #5.7) by Ben Aaronovitch. Pretty good continuation of the series, but not great. Not sure if it was me or the book, but I kept getting tangled up and having to go back and reread bits.
The Question of the Missing Head (An Asperger’s Mystery #1) by EJ Copperman & Jeff Cohen. Samuel is an Aspie (of the very male type, familiar to many) who has recently started a business answering questions. He is not a private investigator, which he has to explain to people quite frequently.
The Question of the Unfamiliar Husband (An Asperger’s Mystery #2) by EJ Copperman & Jeff Cohen. Pretty good continuation of the series – enough so that I’m on the wait list for books 3 and 4 at my library.
Written Off (Mysterious Detective Mystery #1) by EJ Copperman. Pretty good mystery about a mystery author who’s contacted by a man who bears an uncanny similarity to the main character in the mystery series she writes…
Edited Out (Mysterious Detective Mystery #2) by EJ Copperman. I didn’t find the second book quite as enjoyable as the first, but now I’m curious how long the author can sustain this amusingly ridiculous premise.
Asperger’s on the Inside by Michelle Vines. Ok autobiographical account of growing up in Australia with undiagnosed Asperger’s Syndrome. I still can’t complete figure out why this one didn’t work for me. The spectacular overuse of exclamation points was a tiny part of it, I’m sure – it’s hard to read a book that exuberant.

Linkity returns! Well, kind of. Linkity starts to slog through the backlog isn’t as catchy, tho.

Tinker; Wolf Who Rules; Elfhome; Wood Sprites (Elfhome 1-4) by Wen Spencer. A delightful reread!
Kaleidoscope: Ideas & Projects to Spark Your Creativity by Suzanne Simanaitis. It was ok. More focused on making zines than I expected.
