Started off February with a bang primarily because bad news meant I read more as a coping mechanism. After War of Honor, I slowed down because I got sick, because I distrusted the next book in the series, and because my attempts at reading my collaborator's fiction screwed with my writing, and I gave up. Then I did a little rereading to lift my rotten mood, but rereads don't count, remember?
- Doppelganger duology by Marie Brennan - compelling, couldn't put it down
- Flag in Exile by David Weber - layered and amazingly good
- Honor Among Enemies by David Weber - very good, enjoyed thoroughly
- In Enemy Hands by David Weber - reduced me to a quivery, cringing mess—in a good way. I was in no way up to reading the next book immediately and took a reprieve
- Mindtouch by M.C.A. Hogarth - even more amazing than expected and ended on a cliffhanger! love, love, love—except the cliffhanger
- Mindline by M.C.A. Hogarth - heartpounding, awww-inducing awesome. Love
- Echoes of Honor by David Weber - wow, loved
- Ashes of Victory by David Weber - oh, my heart
- War of Honor by David Weber - There are too many characters I want to strangle right now, not least of all High Ridge and Giancola. I hate how it ended and had to go read the summary of the next book to be sure it would fix it. It will. I must sit through watching my favorite characters fight each other. Gut-wrenching.
Breaking this down by genre:
- 2 books heroic action-adventure fantasy
- 6 books military science fiction
- 2 books general science fiction*
*meaning I haven't the foggiest which subgenres the Mindhealers duology belongs to, but it was awesome and clearly SF.
- 2 entire series
- 1 continuing through a series
- 0 stand-alone novels
