Dead Hood's Good Avenger; Live Wild Freefall

Red Hood's Revenge, by Jim C. Hines
Delightful. My favorite of the series so far.

Stay at Home Dead, by Jeffrey Allen
My brother-in-law and sister both said I had to read this because it would remind me of them (and my niece), and because it was funny. They were right.

The Good, the Bad, and the Undead, by Kim Harrison
Still a few annoying mistakes, but nothing of the scale of the mink = rodent theory that had me almost throwing the first one across the room. Very fun popcorn reading.

Blue Avenger and the Theory of Everything, by Norma Howe
This didn't hang together for me as well as the other books in this series. Not sure it if was me or the book. However, the last chapter or so was absolutely delightful, and had me laughing so hard that my husband demanded to know what was funny.

A Wild Light, by Marjorie M. Liu
Gripping urban fantasy with scifi underpinnings. The previous book in this series was a bit hard to follow, but this one wasn't at all, and I couldn't put it down. SO good.

Buffy Season 9, vol. 1: Freefall, by Joss Whedon et al., and Angel and Faith, vol. 1: Live Through This, by Christos N. Gage et al.
I spent season 8 reading one single issue at a time and it drove me crazy - I'm a big-story-arc kinda gal. So I waited for these trade paperbacks to come out - and I'm very glad I did, because I enjoyed them a lot more than I did last season. The Angel volume was particularly good - it hung together a little more tightly (so far) than the Buffy story did. Or it was more old-school. Or something.
