Reading Update
Going Postal (Discworld, #33; Moist von Lipwig, #1)Going Postal, Making Money (Discworld, #36)Making Money, and Raising Steam (Discworld, #40, Moist von Lipwig #3)Raising Steam (Discworld 33, 36, 40) by Terry Pratchett. Six months ago, if you’d tried to tell me I’d really enjoy reading two books about a guy whose first name is “Moist”, I would’ve backed slowly away from you. Raising Steam was a dnf. It… was not readable as a Terry Pratchett book. 🙁
The Light Fantastic (Discworld, #2; Rincewind #2)The Light Fantastic (Discworld #2) by Terry Pratchett. The continuing adventures of Rincewind, Twoflower, and the Luggage.
Sourcery (Discworld, #5; Rincewind #3)Sourcery, Interesting Times (Discworld, #17)Interesting Times, and The Last Continent (Discworld, #22)The Last Continent (Discworld 5, 17, 22) by Terry Pratchett. More Rincewind and the wizards of Unseen University.

Art Journaling Monday!

Welcome back to Art Journaling Monday! Since I skipped last week (I was on staycation), there’s no way I’m going to include all of the links for two weeks. It would be a little bit nuts. You can catch up on everything on my Tumblr, if you’d like. I’ve included some of my favorites below. 🙂

A little skimpy on the linkity, a little heavy on the reviewettes

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!

Art Journaling Monday!

Welcome back to Art Journaling Monday! 🙂 Just a warning – kind of a crazy lot of art this week – I’m running out my tumblr queue while at the same time simultaneously posting from insta to tumblr, so it’s a bit of a double whammy until the queue is empty (only 31 days to go!).
