Sylvester, or, The Wicked Uncle: by Georgette Heyer. An amusing premise for a romance!
Chasing The Moon by A Lee Martinez: light and fun and very silly.
Knave in Hand, by Laurence Janifer: I don’t know where we got this, but I enjoyed it. Maybe there’s a sequel, somewhere around, like 30 years ago?
The Mostly True Story of Jack: This is a new author to watch out for. Her writing style is reminiscent of Diana Wynne Jones or Nina Kiriki Hoffman.
Nurture Shock: Not bad. It’s more Malcolm Gladwell than the kind of (non-work) non-fiction I usually read (which hasn’t been much recently). Very easy to digest, not much depth though.
You’re not fooling anyone when you take your laptop into a coffeeshop. By Scalzi. We both love grade-A snark.
Wrapped, by Jennifer Bradbury: We already talked about this one in a previous what are we reading, but now #1 has read it! She loves it too and eagerly awaits new books by the author (especially if there’s a sequel!) Another relatively recent author to watch out for (we see there’s a 2008 novel as well– it doesn’t look as “frothy” though).
#2 has been reading a lot of books about horses. I’ve gotten to the point in my riding lessons where reading a book would actually be interpretable. So far, so good.
Zen in the Art of Writing by Ray Bradbury: a slim book, worth reading, but not worth keeping. I just don’t want to hear that many stories about boyhood in the past.
