Reading progress update: I've read 188 out of 400 pages.
Lockwood & Co. Book Three: The Hollow Boy - Jonathan Stroud

In terms of the series as a whole, progress is at a snail's pace. There are hints that eventually George is gonna figure out the overall cause of the Problem and that Lucy's insights are going to be crucial but that's about it.

Demon Road, Derek Landy
Demon Road - Derek Landy

The best novel I've read by Landy! It also has the best reason to get rid of the parents I've ever come across in teen fantasy. I suspect its inspiration resides heavily in the TV show, Supernatural, and the level of explicit horror was startling. Trade-mark Landy quiping and comic-relief idiot are all present and correct, though toned down compared to early Skulduggery Pleasant.

Demon Road - Derek Landy

Clearly Derek Landy as much because of the contrasts to Skulduggery Pleasant as the similarities.

Wyrd Sisters - Terry Pratchett

One of those Discworld books that only get better with every single reread.  Pratchett absolutely hit his stride with this ... one of my all-time favorites, by far not for the Shakespeare references alone.

Prince Zaleski and Cummings King Monk - M.P. Shiel

What an odd mixture of mystery and gothic horror.  Clearly in the tradition of Edgar Allan Poe ... with elements of Horace Walpole, Ann Radcliffe, Arthur Conan Doyle, and G.B. Shaw mixed in for good measure.

 

Thank you, Tigus, for a second contribution to my Halloween Bingo reads!
