The other book, which I finished yesterday, is the second novel in the Skulduggery Pleasant series. According to this old blog post I've already read it, which is weird because I don't remember reading it. I usually remember everything that happens in a book and when I re-read them it's just to relive old memories. Skulduggery Pleasant is a childrens series. On the back of the book it says 9+, but the humour in it is just too good. I can tell while reading that it's aimed at a younger audience than me, but I'm still laughing out loud while reading it cause the humour is just too good.
"I'm not weird like that. I'm good weird. I'm cool weird."

Tanith Low: "I've got some shackles with your name on them."
Billy-Ray Sanguine: "Shackles can't hold me, pretty lady. I'm immune to just every binding spell I reckon you ever heard of, and a few more you haven't. That's what makes me special."
Tanith Low: "That and your Psychopathic tendencies."
Billy-Ray Sanguine: "Oh, those don't make me special. They just make me fun."
"What is it with you women? You come into our lives, you take everythin'! Throughout the years you got little pieces of me, of my very soul, and now? Now you got my damn straight razor! How am I supposed to kill people? How am I supposed to even shave?"
- Billy-Ray Sanguine
Brobding the giant: "I'm gonna kill you. Want you to know, it's nothing personal."
Skulduggery Pleasant: "That's good to hear. In which case, I'm going to knock you down and hit you with the pool table, and Iwant you to know, it's nothing personal either."
"Whatever you do, do not fall over. Falling over, I think, would be the wrong move to make at this moment."

Skulduggery: "It's not him. Idon't know what they are, but there are dozens of them, relatively small, moving as a pack."
Valkyrie: "They might be kittens."
Skulduggery: "They're stalking us."
Valkyrie: "They might be shy."
Skulduggery: "I don't think it's kittens, Valkyrie."
Valkyrie: "Puppies, then?"
Kenspeckle: "Have you eaten?"
Valkyrie: "One of your assistants brought me a burger for breakfast."
Kenspeckle: "I meant, have you eaten sensibly?"
Valkyrie: "I was very sensible while I was eating the burger. Didn't miss my mouth once."
Just that weird sense of humour keeps me reading this series.
