Good 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 by Monika Forsberg. Cute, but without much actual content.
The 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 and 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) by Terry Pratchett. In which Sam Vimes goes on a vacation to his wife’s family’s summer home and shenanigans ensue.
Under 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!
“Sheesh! Back off, Mom!” -Mayhem
