Maskerade (Discworld, #18)Maskerade (Discworld #18) by Terry Pratchett. Nanny Ogg and Granny Weatherwax in the big bad city, helping out a fellow witch who’s resisting her witching destiny by singing with opera.
Carpe Jugulum (Discworld, #23)Carpe Jugulum (Discworld #23) by Terry Pratchett. Not a favorite – there are too many inconsistencies with how Agnes Nitt was portrayed in #18 vs here.
That Ain't Witchcraft (InCryptid, #8)That Ain’t Witchcraft (InCryptid #8) by Seanan McGuire. The crossroads vs everyone!
Night Watch (Discworld, #29)Night Watch (Discworld #29) by Terry Pratchett. reread. I enjoyed this the first time I read it, but I liked it even more on the reread.
The Quite Nice and Fairly Accurate Good Omens Script BookThe Quite Nice and Fairly Accurate Good Omens Script Book by Neil Gaiman. Boom! I am lost to the Good Omens fandom and have been reading nothing but Good Omens fanfic since this one… 😀 (And yes, THIS is exactly what’s happening on tumblr. It is glorious!)

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.

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…

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!

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.

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.

Wyrd Sisters (Discworld, #6)Wyrd Sisters (Discworld #6) by Terry Pratchett. Pretty good introduction to Granny Weatherwax and Nanny Ogg – I suspect if I were more familiar with Shakespeare’s plays, I would’ve gotten a lot more out of this one.
Hazard (West Hell Magic, #1)Hazard and Spark (West Hell Magic #2)Spark (West Hell Magic 1-2) by Devon Monk. Good series about a world where those with supernatural abilities aren’t allowed to play in the NHL, so they play in paranormal-only league. The first two books are about two brothers, a wizard and a werewolf, who are getting their start in the league.
Chaos Choreography (InCryptid, #5)Chaos Choreography, Magic for Nothing (InCryptid, #6)Magic for Nothing, and Tricks for Free (InCryptid, #7)Tricks for Free (InCryptid 5-7) by Seanan McGuire. Chaos Choreography: Once again, Verity’s part of a ballroom dancing reality tv show and things are, of course, complicated by her family’s work protecting supernatural beings. Magic for Nothing and Tricks for Free: Verity’s younger sister Antimony is sent to England to infiltrate the Covenant and things get complicated.
The Creative Habit: Learn It and Use It for LifeThe Creative Habit: Learn It and Use It for Life by Twyla Tharp. I just lost interest in it halfway through and have no interest in continuing.
Art MattersArt Matters: Because Your Imagination Can Change the World by Neil Gaiman, illustrated by Chris Riddell. Excellent small collection of inspirational essays and illustrations – I’ve already purchased a copy for a birthday gift…
1,000 Artist Journal Pages: Personal Pages and Inspirations1000 Artist Journal Pages: Personal Pages and Inspirations by Dawn DeVries Sokol. Exactly what the title says! 🙂

Men at Arms: A Novel of DiscworldMen at Arms (Discworld #15) by Terry Pratchett. This was my in-depth introduction to the Night Watch. Love!

Sixty-One Nails (Courts of the Feyre, #1)Sixty-One Nails (Courts of the Feyre #1) by Mike Shevdon. “The smarter, faster brother to Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere has arrived.” ??? LOLOLOL. Sorry, but no. It was an ok urban fantasy. I might read the rest of the series. I might not.
The Shepherd's Crown (Discworld, #41; Tiffany Aching, #5)The Shepherd’s Crown (Tiffany Aching #5) by Terry Pratchett. I’m not crying, you’re crying. I didn’t realize when I started reading this, the 5th Tiffany Aching Discworld book, that it was the very last Discworld book and indeed, the book Terry Pratchett was working on when he died.
The Color of Magic (Discworld, #1)The Color of Magic (Discworld #1) by Terry Pratchett. Good introduction to and start of the Discworld series. I loved the Luggage!
The Last Adventure of Constance VerityThe Last Adventure of Constance Verity (Constance Verity #1) by A Lee Martinez. I found it unreadable and only made it a few chapters in.

Marked (Mindspace Investigations, #3)Marked and Vacant ( Mindspace Investigations Novel, #4)Vacant (Mindspace Investigations 3-4) by Alex Hughes. Good continuation of this series about a telepath and recovering addict who consults for the police and, under duress, the Telepath’s Guild. Unfortunately, I screwed up and read book #4 before book #3, so I spent much of book #4 thinking my memory had gotten REALLY bad when things that turned out to have happened in book #3 were mentioned…
I Shall Wear MidnightI Shall Wear Midnight (Tiffany Aching #4) by Terry Pratchett. Very good continuation of this series as teenage Tiffany works in the Chalk amid rising anti-witch sentiment.
Discount Armageddon (Incryptid, #1)Discount Armageddon (InCryptid #1) by Seanan McGuire. I liked it better upon rereading than I did when I read it four years ago!
