Books Read, October 2010

Fool’s Girl by Celia Rees
Blameless by Gail Carriger – This was a bit of a letdown when compared to the other two books in the series, partly because Carriger was using a particular stock plot from the romance novel that I find particularly annoying.
Royal Flush by Rhys Bowen
Rampant by Diana Peterfreund – This was the most fun YA book I’ve read in a while. Astrid is called upon to fulfill a destiny her family has been charged with – hunting unicorns. The unicorns in this book aren’t the shining happy mystical creatures that tend to populate fantasy novels. Instead, they are dangerous, malodorous vermin. Rampant has plenty of humor and fans of fiction featuring girls kicking ass would likely enjoy this book.
