The House at Riverton by Kate Morton. Nice prose but, in every other way, I'm not feelin' it. Oh well.

Oathbringer - Brandon Sanderson

When you love a series, book and the characters so much that you really, really don't want to rush through it and have to wait another X number of years for the next installment.

Knowing your inability to quit a series, that’s going to be quite the slog!

Elantris, Mistborn, The Girl in the Tower, and Inferno. Bit of a full TBR at the moment.

Onto Circe by Madeline Miller which I'm really enjoying so far.

I have such a soft spot for Greek Mythology.

FINALLY frigging finished The Night Lords omnibus ugh never been more confused about a cast of characters before. They're truly horrible but entertaining and sympathetic. Although the main character REALLY crosses the line in the third book he does something horrible. I was really rooting for The Eldar in the end and that wasn't just due to them being one of my favourite factions but the main characters deserved to pay for what they did.

It's a heavy angsty story.

Now I'm reading something which couldn't be different! Agatha Christy's Murder on the Orient Express heard she's amazing at characterisation even with a large cast so I hope to learn something from it!

The Hideaway by Lauren K. Denton.

I don't have much to compare a romance novel to, but it's plenty enjoyable. It's southern charm and feel-good story make it a good read while on vacation.

After a reading drought, picked up The Thirteenth Tale properly and I am utterly transfixed.

I just finished reading A Criminal Defense this week. It was pretty good. :>
