The Gods of Mars (Barsoom, #2)
Well, the end got rather silly. Still, these books are a bit silly, but that's ok. They're quick and easy to read with non-stop action smacking you ar...more

Angel & Faith: What You Want, Not What You Need, Part 2 (Angel & Faith, #22)
A return with a twist, lots of excellent dialogue, a fun reference to Buffy's story, and then a big finish. Exciting stuff, hurry up next month!

Grandpa Clock's Lollipop Days (The Magic House, #22)
Amazing as always. Advocates the giving of lollipops to babies, and includes the word 'poo'. Must've been a hit with the little ones in its time!

Paddington Suitcase
Not as much substance to these as the chapter books, but the lovely drawings by R.W. Alley makes it worth your while to pick these up.

Angel & Faith: Family Reunion, Part 2 (Angel & Faith, #12)

Six Earlier Days (Every Day #0.5)
Just a few extra interesting glimpses of days past. Doesn't add anything to the plot of Every Day, but if you liked the book then do read this.

Uncle Teapot and the Little Bird (The Magic House, #21)
A somewhat surreal Magic House story. I know that's odd when they're all a bit surreal, but this seemed more so than usual!

The Bug, Witch and the Robot (Sluggy Freelance: Book 6)
The sudden jump to the 'Rescue Mission at the North Pole' story is jarring, felt like quite a weak start to the AlienSanta story.
