Reading List, June 2005


Trickster’s Queen by Tamora Pierce – I like this series so much more than some of Pierce’s other recent work. It seemed a bit more grown-up and less formulaic. I think breaking out of the 4 books in a series convention that she’d been working with for so long was very good.

Bait and Switch : The (Futile) Pursuit of the American Dream by Barbara Ehrenreich – This was an advance copy picked up at ALA. Ehrenreich goes undercover in her search for a white collar job. This was a grim book, I didn’t realize that kooky personality tests and Christianity were so important in corporate culture

Chronicles of Chrestomanci vol 2: The Magicians of Caprona and Witch Week – I’m glad I started reading Diana Wynne Jones so late, because I have plenty of her books to look forward to.
