Book Meme: Day 03

Day 03 – The best book you’ve read in the last 12 months

Oh man, this is hard. I’ve read a lot of good books lately. Like the aforementioned Manual of Detection, or the oddly laid-out treasure box that is The Complete Works of TS Spivot. I love it when the idea of what a book is is subverted somehow – a book doesn’t have to be pages with text in linear rows. It can have pictures, asides, moving parts and diagrams too.

In genre fiction, Unholy Ghosts is the latest book to blow my mind with junkie debunkers, greaser gangsters and a whole lot of magic, trouble and drugs. Stacia Kane’s got a way with characters and dialogue (and dialect!) that makes me squee. I’ve got the third in her series in my hot little hands right now, and I’m terribly (*cough*) disappointed that I can’t read the thing in one sitting, the way it ought to be read.

Stupid job.
