Reading progress update: I've read 66%.
All Good Things: The Split Worlds - Book Five - Emma Newman

I'm having quite a lot of fun with this one, so I thought I'd share some of the quotes I'd highlighted.



“I’ll look through the desk, you look for a safe.”
“The deeds won’t be in there,” Cathy said, heading over to the nearest painting of bleak moorland.
“I agree. I just want to see what he keeps in here.”


Catching a glimpse of the mundane clothing previously hidden by the large cloak, her uncle raised an eyebrow. “Catherine, dear, I assumed that all was not well in your marriage, considering your eagerness to expose your father-in-law’s crime, but…trousers? Are you quite well?”


“I would find that very difficult, my Lord. I feel most passionately about this.”
He seemed interested again. “How passionately?”
This was it, the thing she feared the most. The moment of self-sacrifice she had always known would come. “I would be willing to…to go to extraordinary lengths to earn your support for our freedom, my Lord.”
“Would you be willing to have your soul forged into a little diamond pin I could wear on my cravat?”

Oh, Lord Poppy.

The Shadow Series- Book 1...
Wake of Vultures - Lila Bowen

I LOVED this story! It's going on my 10* favorites shelf. I think you absolutely have to listen to the audio to get the full experience of Nettie Lonesome aka Nat aka Rhett.


On the surface it's a dark and gritty, western fantasy but down deep it's a whole lot more then that. The author touches on quite a few serious topics-gender identity; sexual orientation, racism, cultural identity, slavery etc.


The entire story was just so well written too. If you haven't read it, you should definitely add it the audio to your 'TBR-Now' pile.

Reading progress update: I've read 40%.
The Hazel Wood - Melissa Albert

Everyone is supposed to be a combination of nature and nurture, their true selves shaped by years of friends and fights and parents and dreams and things you did too young and things you overheard that you shouldn’t have and secrets you kept or couldn’t and regrets and victories and quiet prides, all the packed-together detritus that becomes what you call your life.

Storm Front - Jim Butcher

It started off slow, got really good around the middle and then fizzled out at the end. I did like Harry but I think the way his character was written, was not enough to draw me into his world. When the murderer was revealed, I just shrugged as there was no investment for me. There was not enough explanation of how wizards came to be, the White Council, his guardian Morgan, Harry's supposed crimes, etc. I know this is the first book in the series but it left too many unanswered questions. I may read the second book, but I'm in no great hurry.

Master of the House of Darts by Aliette de Bodard
Master of the House of Darts - Aliette de Bodard

Series: Obsidian and Blood #3


In this conclusion to the Obsidian and Blood trilogy, Acatl has to investigate a possible plague after a warrior collapses during the Revered Speaker's return ceremony. Acatl is High Priest of the Dead and the whole trilogy is a historical fantasy based on the Aztec Empire in the 15th century. It's pretty neat, although somewhat bloody (you know the Aztecs and blood sacrifices).


The only bummer was that I found that the text had a higher number of mistakes than I like (a few missing words and typos).
