At the end the author kind of forgets about a minor but important character. Other than that, it was a great read. There is a joke about fonts which brought me to tears every time I read it. The punchline cannot be quoted without substitution. It is a spectacular achievement.

We've had our toad for the 2020s, it's got to get better from here!
But do beware the toad burps.

Just finished the first book in Faith Hunter's new Soulwood series - and I am quite impressed that Autocorrect knew to suggest Sourwood for that - BLOOD OF THE EARTH. It is set in the Jane Yellowrock universe, and there is a neat little homage to the Mercy Thompson series near the end.

Me too -- I enjoyed it!  Had you read the short story that introduces Nell?  I'm anxious for the second book in the series -- CURSE ON THE LAND -- coming in November.

I also just finished BETRAYALS -- the fourth book in Kelley Armstrong's Cainsville series.

Re-read a bunch of Charlotte MacLeod's "Alisa Craig"mysteries, now re-reading Our Hostess' "Dragon Bones".

Just finished the latest in Charlaine Harris's Aurora Teagarden mystery series. Harris wrote mysteries for almost two decades before she started writing urban fantasy, and now she's returning to her roots. The previous one in the series, LAST SCENE ALIVE, was several years ago. The current book, ALL THE LITTLE LIARS, is the ninth, so not a good place to start due to major spoilers. While she does not kill off characters with quite the gleeful abandon of George R. R. Martin, none of her major characters are truly safe from that fate except the heroine, so it's best to start farther back. This book is not quite as dark as some of the earlier ones, though not exactly a cozy either.

Just read through all my Babylon 5 books. On a bit of a binge.

Also, just read Mike Shepherd's new book in his Kris Longknife series (it just came out that day!), called Bold. Or should it be BOLD? :D

I've recently re-read Robert E. Weinberg's two trilogies based on the RPG Magic: The Gathering.
They were written in the Nineties, and in an alternate world I would not want to live in.
The Masque of the Red Death consisted of Blood War, The Unbeholden and Unholy Allies; The Horizon War consisted of The Road To Hell, The Ascension Warrior and War in Heaven.
Mages, vampires and Beings From The Outer Dark...

Then my re-reading of the "Ukiah Oregon" series by Wen Spencer are tame by comparison.

Mine are getting kind of soft at the corners from re-reading and handling.

That's annoying. What I hate is when pages start to come loose. :(
