Books I Read in October

10 this month. Not bad but 3 were young adult, 1 was just a little over 100 pages and 1 was a kid’s graphic novel.

Jennifer Government by Max Barry
Interesting concept of a future where everything has been privatized and everything is about profit.

Princess Bride by William Golden
Good, but I liked the movie better.

Donegal: Irish Justice by James Lower
See my review here.

Weight by Jeanette Winterson
This didn’t do much for me but at least it was short.

Blue Girl by Charles de Lint
I liked this one. I have come to expect to run into characters that I find too annoying to care about in stories about outsiders but I didn’t have that problem here.

Bloody Jack by L.A. Meyer
Managed to be fun without being cute and too nice about everything.

Arizona Free by Doug Martin
Not really a fan of this one. Clunky dialogue and all kind of goofy and weird, but not in a good way.

Vampire Zero by David Wellington
Evil vampires which is good but an unlikable and unrelatable heroine which is not. I'll probably eventually read the next one though to find out what happens.

Mouse Guard: Fall 1152 by David Peterson
I love the art in this graphic novel and the fact that there are panels without any words so the graphics get to tell a lot of the story.

Casino Royale by Ian Fleming
Bond. You really can’t go wrong.
