Thursday Non-Reading Sub-Meme

Well, Yuletide + RL work mini-disasters + holidays devoured the past week, so I haven't been reading much except a bunch of emails and a lot of versions of the thing I was trying to write. However. . .

What I've Just Finished Reading

Nothing but Yuletide fic in the immediate past, but at some point I did end up reading Strong Poison again and I have no regrets; I liked it even better than I remembered. It's full of Straw Bohemians, non-straw bohemians, scenes that go on three times longer than they should because the author is having too good a time to quit, people being snobbish about weirdly specific things like whether or not you should put sugar in your coffee, bad detecting, dubious arsenic lore, and a bunch of my favorite minor and one-off characters. Maybe I'll make a separate post about it sometime? I also finished Egotopia and it was terrible, and I want to talk about how terrible it was but I'm not sure that it deserves the attention.

What I'm Reading Now

My way throught the Yuletide collection, for the next few days.

What I Plan to Read Next

Thanks to recommendations here and elsewhere, I now have a massive list of things to read next. I'm not completely sure where to begin, but Ngaio Marsh came in second in the poll and I have also been informed that there exists something called "Arsène Lupin vs. Herlock Sholmes," so those will probably be my starting points for now.

Regular Wednesday Reading Meme will return next Wednesday, I'm pretty sure.

I'm about to start reading through the collection now too! (FYI we've got 3 War and Peace fics in the archive this year! You probably could figure that out on your own but I'm too excited to shut up; accept my apologies :))

No apologies needed! War and Peace is taking over Yuletide! :D
