Book 73: Antiagon Fire
, by L. E. Modesitt Jr. Continuing the Imager series; interesting, but I kind of wish the character would settle down and go into more of the political intriguing again. We've had a bunch of military maneuverings in the past books and there's not much new coming out of that.
Book 74: The Shambling Guide to New York City
, by Mur Lafferty. Fun urban fantasy about discovering supernatural creatures hiding among us; I kind of hope that the next book gets more into the 'travel guide' side of things and a bit less adventure-some, because that's what makes this idea unique.
Book 75: Playing for Keeps
, by Mur Lafferty. Interesting superhero novel about third-stringers... It seems to be a theme that the smaller the stakes are, the more I'm enjoying things right now.
Book 76: Kenobi
, by John Jackson Miller. This is a great read for Star Wars fans, about what Obi-wan gets up to after he returns to Tattooine with baby Luke. Lots of fun; I'd recommend everyone take a look at this.
Book 77: I Robot: To Obey
, by Mickey Zucker Reichert. Second Susan Calvin book; I still like the idea, but I could stand less of the 'anti-robot terrorists' plotline and more of the 'brilliant psychologist plays with robots' stuff.
Book 78: Mage's Blood
, by David Hair. The start of a new fantasy cycle. It's painted in very broad strokes (characters almost literally cackling as they outline their evil plan, etc) but fun anyway. The setup is intriguing enough that I'll at least check out the next book to see how it continues.
