32) Peeps, Scott Westerfeld

Vampirism as parasite. Didn't like it as much as the other Westerfeld's I've read; won't seek out the sequel, though I'll probably read it if it falls into my life. (Turns up at a book swap or something)

33) Hound, by Vincent McCaffrey

I can't say it's not a mystery, because there is a murder, and our main character, bookhound Henry Sullivan, does figure out who committed it. But that's not what the book is about, and it doesn't read like I expect a mystery to read. This is a book about love and loss, parents and children, past and present. The most intriguing mystery is not who killed the murdered woman, but the story of the woman whose letters Henry finds early on, someone who was a traveler and a letter writer, and somehow connected to the Arts and Crafts movement.

I'm currently reading an ARC of the sequel, which comes out in July.
