2017 Booklist

This year I have a real job! I love it, and also I am tired. We'll see how it goes with reading.
  1. Throne of the Crescent Moon - Saladin Ahmed. What if the basis of a fantasy universe were--instead of the standard medieval Europe--medieval Islam instead? VĂ³ila.
  2. Witches Abroad - Terry Pratchett. Featuring a couple characters from the Tiffany Aching books. Fabulous.
  3. Etiquette & Espionage - Gail Carriger.
  4. The Gate to Futures Past - Julie E. Czerneda. Wins my award for "Toughest Setup For A Sequel."
  5. The Ark Before Noah - Irving Finkel. Decent book, but watching his lecture on the topic is far, far more entertaining. (Unless you're a cuneiform nerd. Which I'm not. No judgement, though.)
  6. REAMDE - Neal Stephenson. Probably his most streamlined and polished novel! Good fun.
  7. On The Edge - Ilona Andrews. 
  8. Blood of Elves - Andrzej Sapkowski.
  9. Through The Language Glass - Guy Deutscher.
  10. Bayou Moon - Ilona Andrews.
  11. The Time of Contempt
  12. The Tower of Swallows
  13. Baptism of Fire - Andrzej Sapkowski. (It turns out Tower and Baptism should be switched, but the series is so disjointed about time that it doesn't seem to matter.
  14. Fate's Edge - Ilona Andrews.
  15. The Lady of the Lake - Andrzej Sapkowski. Done!

  4. 100 Bullets, Vol. 1-2 - Brian Azzarello & Eduardo Risso.
