( 72. Our Nig - Harriet E Wilson )
Frustrating and structurally unsatisfying, but a sometimes interesting perspective on discrimination against free blacks in the supposedly-enlightened North of the US.
( 73. Enough Space for Everyone Else - ed. JN Monk )
A thoroughly satisfying collection of space opera short stories in graphic novel form, telling stories that aren't just about strong-jawed imperialist white dudes.
( 74. Ruth Hall - Fanny Fern )
Enjoyable enough in itself, but as, essentially, autobiography it's vicious and satisfying.
( 75. The Battle of the Sexes in Science Fiction - Justine Larbalestier )
Fascinating look at early science fiction, both the stories and the community around it; I would definitely recommend this to anyone interested in both feminism and science fiction, and I'm only sorry I took so long to read it!
( 76. A College of Magics - Caroline Stevermer )
Kind of an odd story, sometimes frustrating, but definitely worth my persevering with.
( 10 Thorndyke novels - R Austin Freeman )
I cannot ignore the dubious bits, but I do still really enjoy these.
( 81. The Golem and the Djinni - Helene Wecker )
Complex and interesting and very human, even though it's about people who don't officially fit the description.
( 82. The Secret Casebook of Simon Feximal - KJ Charles )
I can see why Charles is so popular, but at least based on this book, I don't think she's for me. Alas.
( 83. Death by Silver - Melissa Scott and Amy Griswold )
If you're looking for speculative fiction with gay detectives, I'd vote for this one over the previous!
( 84. The Girl with all the Gifts - M Carey )
Definitely interesting and, I think, good, but I could really take it or leave it.
( 85. The Ghost Bride - Yangsze Choo )
Surprisingly good for a random pick-up from a library shelf!
( 86. A Scholar of Magics - Caroline Stevermer )
Magical Oxbridge (sort of)! This was fun.
( 87. Sorcery and Cecelia - Patricia C Wrede and Caroline Stevermer )
Fabulous Regency entertainment, and I'm looking forward to the sequels.
( 88. Point of Hopes - Melissa Scott and Lisa A Barnett )
A satisfying fantasy adventure story with some really intriguing worldbuilding.
( 89. Among the Believers - VS Naipaul )
There is definitely scope for someone to write an interesting book about majority-Islamic countries, but it should probably be someone who doesn't have a reflexive dislike of the religion.
( 90. The Marshal's Lover - Jo Graham )
Fun historical adventures.
( 93. A Year of Biblical Womanhood - Rachel Held Evans )
In conclusion: Held Evans is a good writer, and this is well worth a look for anyone with an interest in what it actually means to live "by the Bible". Also, it's frequently very funny.
( 97. Raven Stratagem - Yoon Ha Lee )
Eagerly awaiting the final part of the trilogy!
( 99. The Saltmarsh Murders - Gladys Mitchell )
A very weird Golden Age series; I had a proper love-hate thing with it, and I still can't decide whether I want to try another one.
