Armchair Cybils November check-in

It's time for the Armchair Cybils November check-in! Tonight I curled up by the fire (Literally! So fun to have a wood-burning stove.) and read a couple more books, just for good measure. So here's what we've got so far.

  • Cleopatra in Space #1:Target Practice by Mike Maihack
  • The Dumbest Idea Ever by Jimmy Gownley

I think I'm fairly dying to tell you about Through the Woods (pun intended, because that book is super creepy, in the best way). And I'm still in the middle of it, but Strange Fruit is a wonderful surprise. I hadn't heard anything about it before it arrived in my mailbox (thanks to all the wonderful publishers for sending review copies to us panelists!) and I'm really digging it.

Have you read any of these? Any requests for which one I should review next?

In other news, progress on Story Club continues at a slower pace than before, but I think that's what's best for my sanity. :) Feel free to kick me in the pants, though! :D
