Books read in July: #83-95

83. Mackenzie Ford, The Clouds Beneath the Sun: Historical fiction (1960s Kenya). Disappointing.
84. Beth Pattillo, Jane Austen Ruined My Life: Chick lit, Austen paraliterature. Good, not great.
85. Pamela Dean, Tam Lin: Fantasy (sort of). Pretentious and not very fantasy-esque -- the "Tam Lin" story barely comes into it!
86. Hilaire Belloc, Marie Antoinette: Biography. Interesting material, dry writing style, and very subjective interpretations of people and events.
87. Nina Schindler, An Order of Amelie, Hold the Fries: YA. Whimsical, but too short to go anywhere interesting.
88. Y. S. Lee, A Spy in the House: YA, historical fiction (Victorian England), mystery. Fun!
89. Edith Pattou, East: YA, fantasy. I liked it a lot.
90. Jennifer Echols, Forget You: YA. Good, and definitely worth reading if you liked Going Too Far.
91. Heather Davis, The Clearing: YA, fantasy. Sweet and romantic (plus there's time travel!).
92. Claire Harman, Fanny Burney: A Biography: Biography. Very informative and interesting.
93. Tennessee Williams, A Streetcar Named Desire: Play. Interesting and absorbing character study. (Also: STELLA!!!!!)
94. Charles Finch, The Fleet Street Murders: Mystery, historical fiction (Victorian England). Definitely worth reading if you like the series.
95. Caprice Crane, Family Affair: Chick lit. Well-written, but not very lighthearted or fluffy.
