Marcia is Amused.

What I Read in November:
From Scratch by Allen Salkin
Tomorrow, When the War Began by John Marsden
Alanna: The First Adventure by Tamora Pierce
In the Hand of the Goddess by Tamora Pierce
The Woman Who Rides Like a Man by Tamora Pierce
Lioness Rampant by Tamora Pierce
Champion by Marie Lu
Curtsies and Conspiracies by Gail Carriger
So. Champion, the final book of the Legend trilogy, was fine. Interesting and I liked the complicated politics, but I just, for the life of me, couldn’t care about June and Day - although I did like the end of their romance.
The Alanna quartet by Tamora Pierce - while I disliked some of the books individually, I enjoyed this as a whole, and liked it as almost an allegory of the modern working woman.
Tomorrow, When the War Began lives up to the hype as the best classic Y/A dystopian from Australia. I need to read more in this series.
From Scratch is fine if you’re really into the history of television. It’s less about chefs and cooking than I would like, but then, so is the Food Network.
Curtsies and Conspiracies. I have yet to read a bad book by Gail Carriger. She has created this great supernatural steampunk Victorian world and nothing in this Finishing School series nor the Parasol Protectorate has disappointed.
Pages so far: 32,036Books so far: 92On pace for: 100 books, 34,949 pages. But with the holiday month coming up who knows.
I write reviews of all my books on GoodReads! Be my friend there.
