Shepherd's Live Treasure; Last Mortal Pirate Baths

The Shepherd's Tale, by Zack Whedon, Joss Whedon, et al
This was solid. Good to know where Book came from and how he got there.

The Treasure Map of Boys and Real Live Boyfriends, by E. Lockhart
Obviously, I greatly enjoyed this series:). A funny, honest, fallible protagonist is about all I really need from YA...
(194, 199)

The Mortal Bone, by Marjorie M. Liu
This one was even stranger than the last one. Which is a good thing - a lot of urban romantic fantasy kind of worldbuilds by the numbers, so a nice splash of weird is refreshing. Same with the lyrical passages.

Avatar: The Last Airbender: The Promise Part 2, by Gene Luen Yang et al
Still just like the TV show. (High praise indeed!)

More Baths, Less Talking, by Nick Hornby
Fictionwise, I tend to trick myself out of remembering how much I like Nick Hornby's books. But when it comes to his book reviews, I am Quite Clear that I adore them. Love love love. This volume had a bit more talk, too, about why he didn't read certain things or how he struggled with a book for life or literary reasons, which was extra-nifty.

The Pirate King, by Laurie R. King
Russell! Gilbert and Sullivan! Silent movies! Fernando Pessoa! This was an utter romp. Still in love with this series, no matter what odd routes it trips along.
