Reading progress update: I've read 28 out of 217 pages.
Runed - Kendall Grey

One of my Book Bonanza purchases. Crossing my fingers that it'll be the first one I love, or even just like. This author will be attending the next Book Bonanza, and I want to have multiple folks I'd genuinely like to buy more autographed books from.

 

So far, so good. Loki wakes up encased in ice, with Ragnarok being the last thing he remembers. When he manages to get out of the ice, he discovers several things:

1. He's now a naked human woman

2. A thousand years or so have passed (the book is set in contemporary times)

3. He's attracted to the bewildered tour bus driver who found him

4. Huginn (one of Odin's ravens) is now a ragged chicken

 

The tour bus driver was more confused and concerned about Loki kissing him than horny, so he gets points for that. I bought this because it sounded like it wouldn't mostly be sex scenes, and I'm relieved that, so far at least, that seems to be the case.

24 Festive Tasks: Door 4 - Guy Fawkes Night: Book
The Stolen Boys - Joy Ellis,Richard Armitage

 

Well, "set in the UK" may be the easiest way out for this one ... but it turns out nothing is beneath me as an excuse for reading the latest entry in Joy Ellis's Jackman & Evans series!

 

(Also, while this book doesn't precisely involve "fancy dress" in the sense of masqued balls and costumes, it does involve some pretty fancy clothing.)

 

(Task: Read a book set in the UK, a political thriller, a book involving any monarchy or revolution, a book about arson or related to fires and burning, a book whose plot involves costumes / fancy dress, or that has masks on the cover, or that is self-published.)

24 Festive Tasks: Door 2 - Japanese Culture Day: Book
Death at the President's Lodging - Michael Innes
Death at the President's Lodging - Michael Innes,Stephen Hogan

I swear I didn't come up with this book task, but yey, what a great opportunity to squeeze in yet another one of my as-yet unused, potential Halloween Bingo reads!

 

(Task: Read a graphic novel, a book set in a school or academic setting, or a book set in Japan or by a Japanese author.)

24 Festive Tasks: Door 1 - Día de los Muertos / All Saints' Day: Book
Death and the Dancing Footman - Ngaio Marsh,James Saxon

 

This is one of Marsh's books that keep growing on my the more often I visit them ... the story of a mischievously planned weekend invitation featuring a cast of characters with long-held grudges (not to say outright hatred) against each other -- which in short order produces the predictable result: murder.  And things aren't helped by the fact that they're all locked in together after a snow storm.

 

Task: Reread a favorite book by a deceased author or from a finished series, or read a book set in Mexico or a book that either has a primarily black and white cover or all the colors (ROYGBIV) on the cover, or a book featuring zombies.

Rock Steady: Brilliant Advice from My Bipolar Life - Ellen Forney

Overall, this was good - lots of information and advice for folks dealing with bipolar disorder or other mood disorders. It'll probably end up on our list of purchases if we can get that grant.
