What have you read this month, Colubra

So here's where I try to remember, and then get home and browse the shelves to make sure I got everything (or didn't). This is sort of trying to prove to myself that yes, I DO have the ability to remember things again.

If memory serves, I started the month out with Tad Williams' newest one, War of the Flowers which I thought was... okay. Better than the 4 he cranked out preceding (gaaah! those sucked). Then read The Forests of Serre by Patricia McKillip, which was great. I then picked up The Eyre Affair, by Jasper Fforde. Picked up his Lost In A Good Book immediately thereafter- around the same time, I picked up the first of the Lemony Snicket series, and have been chewing through those one by one (I'm on book 3 now) as bedtime reading. i've been sort of picking at an anthology of Patricia McKillip's 'Riddle-Master' trilogy, but am not as engaged by it as I have been by her more recent work.
Stumbled across an ARC of Tad Williams' The Stone Of Farewell, and therefore bought that- and bought the first book (The Dragonbone Chair) as well, so I wouldn't be reading the 2nd without any recollection of the first. A good call: as it turns out, I don't remember the first hardly at ALL (nearly done with that) I'm planning to pick up the new Dan Simmons sometime between today and Saturday night, as reading for the Vegas trip I'm going on. Ilium, he's titled it. GOLLY I WONDER WHAT IT IS ABOUT, HAR HAR HAR. Rather hope it's another Hyperion diptych, rather than another Endymion.

11 books this month? Hmnnn. I'm sure there were more.
