More books read

As usual, I'm putting these behind a cut for now and I'll remove the cut later once it's off your friends page (i.e. when I make the next book post). But this time I'm leaving out the usual commentary on each book in favor of brief notes on just a few of them, because OMG it's been a long time since my last book post and if I try to do commentary on each one I'll never post books again.

38. Westmark, by Lloyd Alexander. Re-read.

39. Half a Crown, by Jo Walton. New.

40. The Sharing Knife: Passage, by Lois McMaster Bujold. New.

41. Rediscovery, by Mercedes Lackey in Marion Zimmer Bradley's Darkover universe. New.

42. The Heritage of Hastur, by Marion Zimmer Bradley. New.

43. Singer of Souls, by Adam Stemple. New and I will never read it again, ugh.

44. A Brother's Price, by Wen Spencer. Re-read.

45. The Planet Savers, by Marion Zimmer Bradley. New.

46. The Sharing Knife: Passage, by Lois McMaster Bujold. Re-read.

47. Curse of Chalion, by Lois McMaster Bujold. Re-read.

48. The Gate to Women's Country, by Sheri Tepper. New.

49. The Gate to Women's Country, by Sheri Tepper. Re-read (I was still digesting it and didn't want to read anything else while I was still digesting this one).

50. The Sharing Knife: Horizon, by Lois McMaster Bujold. New.

51. The Sharing Knife: Horizon, by Lois McMaster Bujold. Re-read (skipped the malices the second time). In this series I like the odd-numbered books better than the even-numbered ones. I think it might be because in the odd-numbered books she proposes neat ideas and in the even-numbered ones they quietly work on implementing those ideas? Not sure.

52. Komarr, by Lois McMaster Bujold. Re-read.

53. A Civil Campaign, by Lois McMaster Bujold. Re-read.

54. Winterfair Gifts, by Lois McMaster Bujold. Re-read. Almost didn't include it here as it's a story/novella, not a full novel, but it is part of the series.

55. Diplomatic Immunity, by Lois McMaster Bujold. Re-read.

56. Shards of Honor, by Lois McMaster Bujold. Re-read.

57. Barrayar, by Lois McMaster Bujold. Re-read.

58. The King's Peace, by Jo Walton. New.

59. The Warrior's Apprentice, by Lois McMaster Bujold. Re-read.

60. The Vor Game, by Lois McMaster Bujold. Re-read.

61. Cetaganda, by Lois McMaster Bujold. Re-read.

62. Ethan of Athos, by Lois McMaster Bujold. Re-read.

63. Borders of Infinity, by Lois McMaster Bujold. Re-read.

64. Brothers in Arms, by Lois McMaster Bujold. Re-read.

65. Mirror Dance, by Lois McMaster Bujold. Re-read.

66. The Prize in the Game, by Jo Walton. New.

66.5 re-read ch 12 to the end of The King's Peace, by Jo Walton. (Because The Prize in the Game takes place around ch 12 of The King's Peace, and I wanted to see how having more background on the TPitG characters would affect how I see them in TKP.)

67. A Necklace of Raindrops, by Joan Aiken. Re-read.

68. All the Windwracked Stars, by Elizabeth Bear. New. I could tell that I wasn't the target audience. That said, it was still enjoyable enough, just not as much to my tastes as her Jenny Casey books.

69. The King's Name, by Jo Walton. New. I really liked this series! I read them from the library but have since gone out and bought my own copies.

70. Half Past Eight O' Clock, by Joan Aiken. New. Not as much to my taste as some of her stories, but still pleasant enough.

71. Wild Seed, by Octavia Butler. New. I'm still not quite sure how I feel about this one.

72. Memory, by Lois McMaster Bujold. Re-read.

73. Life on the Border, anthology edited by Terri Windling. New.

74. Webmage, by Kelly McCullough. New. Lent to me by a friend who is friends with the author, which lends a difference to a book. I had a couple of small logical quibbles (he loses a fingertip but never has a problem typing thereafter? why doesn't he just have Melchior explain the situation to people, since the spell is only on his own throat? for that matter, why not just tell someone good at magic to look at his throat so they'll see there's a problem?) but overall enjoyed the book a lot. Among other things, the main character is a double-majoring in Classical Studies and Computer Science, just as I did once upon a time (at another school, in another time).
