Considering I only buy ebooks on sale, the restrictions this go around seems really easy. There are only a few books I have on my 2019 reading that don't fit the restrictions. My problem will be library borrows, as the winter editions don't allow library reading to count. 

 

My COYER TBR is just 15 books, which will allow for non-challenge reading.

 

1. You Can't Touch My Hair by Phoebe Robinson (memoir)

2. Cheer Up Love by Susan Calman  (memoir)

3. Rise of the Rocket Girls by Nathalia Holt (women's history)

4. Radium Girls by Kate Moore (women's history)

5. Mary and Lou and Ted and Rhoda by Jennifer Armstrong (pop culture)

6. The Sword Dancer by Jeannie Lin (historical romance)

October 2018 Reading Wrap Up
In Her Bones - Kate Moretti
Mr. Churchill's Secretary - Susan Elia MacNeal
Radio Free Vermont: A Fable of Resistance - Bill McKibben
Don't Call Me Princess: Essays on Girls, Women, Sex, and Life - Peggy Orenstein

Big thank you to Obsidian Blue and MR for another successful Halloween Bingo. I am all good on suspense/horror/creepy reading until next year. Also a thank you to Dewey Read-a-thon, for without that one weekend of nothing but reading I don't think I would have gotten my first bingo. I read for a total of four bingos (two columns, one row, one diagonal).

 

Not much in quantity, but good stuff quality wise. I found a new series to glom (Maggie Hope mysteries) and a new author to read more from (Kate Moretti). I'm feeling some strong effects of Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), so the reading challenges and read-a-thons helped me get out of my inertia. 

 

Here is what I read this month:

1. Eighth Grade Bites #1: The Chronicles of Vladmir Tod Graphic Novel by Heather Brewer, Tony Lee, and Julia Laud - 2.5 stars

 

2. The Turn of the Screw by Henry James - 2 stars

 

3. Leverage in Death (In Death #47) by JD Robb - 3.5 stars

 

4. In Her Bones by Kate Moretti - 5 stars

 

5. Mr. Churchill's Secretary (Maggie Hope Mystery #1) by Susan Ella MacNeal - 4.5 stars

 

6. Croc's Return (Bitten Point #1) by Eve Langlais - 3 stars

 

7. Killer Countdown (Man on a Mission #6) by Amelia Autin - 1.5 stars

 

8. Anya's Ghost by Vera Brosgol - 4 stars

 

9. Don't Call Me Princess: Essays on Girls, Woman, Sex, and Life by Peggy Orenstein - 5 stars

 

10. Radio Free Vermont by Bill McKibben - 4.5 stars

A Murder Mystery as Fun as The Buggles' Song
Video Killed the Radio Star - Mr. Duncan R MacMaster

(or the cover by The Presidents of the United States of America, either will work)

 

“I fear we will never be mistaken for the Algonquin Round Table.”

 

“We’ll have to work on our witty repartee,” said Molly. “I plan on taking a course on banter, ripostes, badinage, and persiflage.”

 

“Even persiflage?”

 

“Especially persiflage,” said Molly. “There is nothing worse than sub-par persiflage.”

 

“You might need to get a sub-par persiflage lanced.”

 

“We’ve hit the nonsense phase of the night earlier than usual.”

 

“I like nonsense,” said Kirby, “it distracts me.”

 

Kirby Baxter just wants to live a quiet life out of the spotlight: hanging out with his girlfriend, Molly, when he can; restoring a car with his valet/bodyguard/etc.; and drawing his comics. And now that the excitement about the murder he solved at Omnicon dying down, he's on the verge of doing that. But the mayor of his hometown knows Kirby, and has no shame in extorting his cooperation with a small problem that he's having.

 

You see, one of the town's major landmarks -- an old, abandoned mansion -- is in dire need of upkeep and remodeling. And a reality show full of C-List celebrities (maybe D- or E-list) have recently set up shop to do that work. But the city's having second thoughts and they want Kirby and his über-perception skills to find a reason to shut down production and send them packing to disrupt another locale.

 

Kirby visits the production, talks to the cast and producers, looks around and comes up with a lot of observations and conclusions -- and could cause a lot of inconvenience and embarrassment for everyone involved from those observations -- but he can't find what the mayor wants. That accomplished, he gets back to pursuing his best life now -- which lasts just a few hours. Because before he can start to collect from the mayor for the work, one of the celebrities is found dead.

 

So, it's back to the mansion for Kirby, this time to act as a consultant ot the local police as they investigate this suspicious death. Which is soon followed by another. And an attack on another cast member. And . . . well, you get the idea.

 

It's nice that MacMaster didn't repeat the whole "Kirby has to win over a skeptical and antagonistic police officer" thing -- this time, thanks to most of the force having grown up with him, they all accept his talents and skills -- an expect him to deliver.

 

The cast of the reality show, "Million Dollar Madhouse," is filled with the typical collection of has-beens, almost-weres, and celebs trying to stage a comeback. Initially, I rolled my eyes at each of them, but the more time I spent with them, the more I appreciated and enjoyed them. In particular, the Kardashian-esque character totally won me over. Like in the previous book, there's a large cast of characters that MacMaster juggles expertly -- there are so many suspects to the murders, as well as witnesses for Kirby and the police to wade through.

 

Almost every serious suspect has the same defense -- they didn't want the initial victim dead. They wanted him to make a fool out of himself on national TV, possibly seriously injuring himself with a power tool. Some would follow that up with some other form of revenge -- but if he's dead, no one could get the revenge they wanted. It's not ideal, but it's an honest defense.

 

Gustave was slightly less super-human this time out -- but he's still in the Ranger/Hawk/Joe Pike nigh-impossible stratosphere. As much as I like everyone else in this series, it's arguable that Gustave is MacMaster's best creation -- not just the character, but how MacMaster uses him.

 

I did miss Mitch. But was glad to see Molly and Kirby talk about him -- and even make a joke he wasn't around to make himself. It's probably good that he wasn't around -- it'll mean when we see him again, it'll be easy to appreciate him without worrying about over exposure.

 

In the place of Mitch, we have Molly's assertive and cunning cousin -- she runs a gossip-website and wheedles her way into the investigation in order to land a story big enough to put her and her site on the map. Kirby clearly vacillates between finding uses for her and finding her distracting.

 

Molly and Kirby are cuter together than they were previously, and I could watch the two of them banter any day. It seemed harder to incorporate Molly into the story this time, and hopefully it's easier for MacMaster in Kirby #3, but as difficult as it was it was absolutely worth it.

 

I'm not sure exactly what it is about MacMaster's writing that works so well for me, but it does. Just before I started writing this, I started to draw some parallels between these Kirby Baxter books and Ellen Raskin's The Westing Game and The Mysterious Disappearance of Leon (I Mean Noel). I didn't have time to fully flesh this idea out, but Raskin's work definitely was formative for me and if the comparison hold up, that could explain a lot. The mix of humor, real emotions and complex mystery is the sweet spot for me and MacMaster consistently hits it. It's not easy, there are precious few who try -- and fewer that succeed. This is the third novel I've read by him and it seals the deal, I'll buy everything he writes as soon as I can without really looking at what the book is about.

 

I was a little worried that this book wouldn't live up to A Mint-Conditioned Corpse, and I don't think it did -- but I don't know what could have for me. I'd enjoyed the other so much that it's almost impossible to live up to -- and the reality show setting didn't do anything for me -- they just leave me cold. The fact I'm rating Video Killed the Radio Star as high as I am is all about how effortlessly charming and entertaining this seems. Effortless always, always, always equals blood, sweat and tears -- or at least a lot of work. This must've taken a great deal of labor, and it was absolutely worth it. A clever mystery, clever dialogue, and very clever characters in a funny, twisty story. The Kirby Baxter books are must reads, no doubt about it. Give this one a shot -- I don't see how you can't enjoy it.
