And finally catching up with the reading list.
123. The Long Divorce* by Edmund Crispin. Another thoroughly entertaining and twisty mystery, with another title the significance of which entirely escapes me.
124. Six of Crows* by Leigh Bardugo. A young-adult fantasy set in a semi-medieval, semi-Northern European milieu, featuring a teenaged gang and magic. The nature of the setting meant that calling a 17-year-old a "boy" was consistently distracting, as a 17-year-old at any time between medieval and Victorian days would have been considered a full-grown adult. And the things the characters are doing are mature things, so referring to them as "girls" and "boys" was just ... well, like I said, consistently distracting. This was also a very dark story with a lot of violence and loss. Good writing, not enough fun.
125. Sir Percy Leads the Band* by Emmauska Orczy. The Scarlet Pimpernel, book two. I liked this considerably better than the first. More straight-up adventure, and the twit of a wife is blessedly absent.
126. Mary Russell's War (and other stories), by Laurie R. King. I've already read most of these before, but I'll read pretty much anything she publishes in this series. And of course now I want to re-read the entire series.
127. The Mysterious Affair at Styles* by Agatha Christie. Entertaining locked-room mystery introducing Hercule Poirot.
128. A Country Christmas* trio of Regency novellas including "The Christmas Angle" by Carla Kelly, in which a sailing master teaches geometry and a vicar's sister-in-law takes on the naval brass.
129. Wonder Woman: Warbringer* by Leigh Bardugo. A solid fantasy-adventure in which a teenage WW and three mortal teens from New York City race the clock to stop an age of war. Very entertaining, and quite suspenseful toward the end - I wasn't at all sure they would all make it.
130. Spectred Isle* by K.J. Charles. A cracking good magical adventure built around a m/m early 1920s romance (or possibly that's the other way around). Danger, thrills, chills, epic battles, witty dialogue, and ancient magic. Can't wait to read the related books.
