Lost quite a bit of this month to travel and being ill. Feh to the latter. (I did, however, get massive amounts of photo-editing done. This is not reading, but it is satisfying.)
Sorcery and Cecelia, Patricia C. Wrede and Caroline Stevermer. Re-read, because I felt like it. Still an enjoyable little romantic alt-Regency fantasy romp.
Child of a Hidden Sea, Alyx Dellamonica. Not yet published; read for blurbing purposes. I'm still trying to put my thoughts into words, but it's a nifty adult portal fantasy about Stormwrack, a world made up of hundreds of islands, with dozens of different cultures among them. The ways in which the Fleet maintains peace in Stormwrack are interesting.
Tooth and Claw, Jo Walton. Had started this ages ago, then got interrupted. This is about as different of a book as one can get from A Natural History of Dragons while still having both books be describable with the words "Victorian" and "dragons." If you're the sort of person who would be entertained by seeing nineteenth-century literary tropes recast with a lot more teeth and claws and fire-breathing, this book is for you. I was entertained.
The Stories: Five Years of Original Fiction on Tor.com. Didn't actually read all of this, but given its RIDICULOUS SIZE, I feel quite comfortable with deeming it an entire book's worth of reading regardless. Tor.com released a free ebook containing the first five years of fiction published on their site. As you might expect from anything that large (with that many editors choosing what to buy), the quality is highly variable -- hence me skipping stories. Some just weren't my cup of tea, but some were actively bad, and not every author has a good handle on how to write a tie-in story to promote their novel. (Some of them, however, have a very good handle on it. So it isn't like you should just skip all the tie-ins.)
Brief aside for a rant: my GOD is this ebook badly formatted. The text itself is generally fine, but the table of contents?
