July 2008 Reading

Here's my reading list from July. Links are to the reviews, when I actually wrote them.

1. Alanya to Alanya - L. Timmel Duchamp
2. The Joiner King - Troy Denning
3. Mothers and Other Monsters - Maureen F. McHugh
4. Grey - Jon Armstrong
5. The Sandman: Seasons of Mists - Neil Gaiman
6. 9Tail Fox - Jon Courtenay Grimwood
7. Snuff - Chuck Palahniuk
8. Seeds of Change - John Joseph Adams (editor)
9. 13 Seconds: A Look Back at the Kent State Shootings - Philip Caputo
10. My Own Kind of Freedom - Steven Brust
11. Sly Mongoose - Tobias Buckell
12. Scardown - Elizabeth Bear
13. Specials - Scott Westerfeld
14. Sweet Silver Blues - Glen Cook
15. Extras - Scott Westerfeld
16. The Unseen Queen - Troy Denning
17. Blood Follows - Steven Erikson
18. Ink and Steel - Elizabeth Bear

The Best Books this month: Alanya to Alanya and Ink and Steel.
The Worst: The two Troy Denning Star Wars novels. Crap.
Special love (no pun intended) to the two Scott Westerfield books. Extras is better than Specials.

The only review pending is Extras, I still need / want to write it. Ink and Steel is written, just out there in the ether. We'll see where it lands. :)

I can't see August being quite so busy for finishing books since two weeks are almost completely given over to watching the Olympics.
