Snuff (Discworld Novels) by Terry Pratchett
Snuff (Discworld Novels)

Susan Craig, October 14, 2011

A new Discworld book is always a treat - especially one featuring Sam Vines. In this outing, Sam is in the country (supposedly) on holiday. But, as Terry Pratchett often points out, where you have a policeman you have crime. Commander Vimes must untangle a mystery while completely out of his element-- and his jurisdiction. As always, Terry Pratchett's wry running commentary is entertaining and quotable. The language sparkles like sunlight on water. This is a great addition to the universe of Discworld.

Legend of Eli Monpress #01: The Spirit Thief by Rachel Aaron
Legend of Eli Monpress #01: The Spirit Thief

Susan Craig, May 18, 2011

If you prefer your fantasy novels on the light and breezy side - this is the series for you. The plot centers around an unlikely group of heroes: a wizard thief, a swordsman and his demonseed, and a bounty hunter riding her ghosthound. They must work together to prevent a catastrophe while trying not to throttle one another before they can succeed. The plot is a rollercoaster of sharp drops and sudden turns with plenty of humor to smooth out the ride.

My Little Sister Ate One Hare by Bill Grossman
My Little Sister Ate One Hare

Susan Craig, February 26, 2011

This is the funniest book on my daughter's bookshelf. It is the "go to" choice when I am asked to read to a group of young children. The rhymes are inventive and catchy and the pictures are hilarious. If your young reader isn't a Bill Grossman fan yet - you don't know what you are missing.

Bury Your Dead (Three Pines Mysteries) by Louise Penny
Bury Your Dead (Three Pines Mysteries)

Susan Craig, January 22, 2011

Louise Penny's Three Pines Mysteries continue to surprise. The previous books kept the fine line between cosy village mysteries and edgier police procedurals. In Bury Your Dead the author adds suspense. The book starts with Inspector Gamache on medical leave due to an unspecified work-related tragedy. He finds himself drawn into a mystery that he unravels as we are slowly given the story behind his injuries and his grief. Don't start this one close to bedtime - it will keep you up until the last sentence.
