Reading project, week ending 20 Jan 2019

What have I read this week?

A Woman in Berlin by Anonymous

This is a memoir written by a woman during the Russian occupation of Berlin in 1945. It’s very interesting, but also quite depressing because of some of the stuff that happens.

The Frame-up (The Golden Arrow Mysteries Book 1) by Meghan Scott Molin

This is a novel about a woman called MG who is a comic book artist and costume designer who becomes mixed up in a police investigation. I didn’t really like it – I found MG a very annoying character, and since it’s from first-person perspective, you can’t get away from her. For that reason, I’m unlikely to read any more of the series

Your Hate Mail Will Be Graded: A Decade of Whatever, 1998-2008 by John Scalzi

This is a collection of blog entries from Scalzi’s blog. I didn’t like it quite as much as I like his fiction.

The Dark Lord of Derkholm by Diana Wynne Jones

This is a fantasy novel. It’s a spoof of fantasy tropes and a lot of fun. I really enjoyed it.
