Some really quick reactions to recent reading

Unseen Academicals by Terry Pratchett
Not amazing for a Discworld book, but I liked it better than Making Money or Thud. Fun read.
The ebook edition I bought is a tad sloppy, with a good handful of linebreaks and spaces either inserted where they don't belong, or missing. Not having a proper cover bugs me, but seems to be the norm, from what I've seen...

Red Hood's Revenge by Jim C.Hines
Nice. I think I need a re-read. Got kinda the feeling there's too much touched upon, and I might have liked it better with either more pages, or one subplot less and more depth for the others, but maybe that was just my brain being scrambled by lack of sleep. Entertaining even so.

His Majesty's Dragon by Naomi Novik
Cute. And funny. Also aggravating and sad, but what stands out to me is the cute and funny.
The more stories I read in a military setting, the more I think it's not for me. It's just background noise to me...

A Distant Sun by M.C.A. Hogarth
Interesting. As an introduction. Want more time with the main character, though; it's a novella, not a novel.

What I've lined up next is the main Sherlock Holmes canon, and a few titles by self-published authors that I got as free samples.
