Reading progress update: I've read 156 out of 326 pages.
Ice Wolves - Amie Kaufman

This author has an amazing ability to suck you completely into a story. The story has a very Harry Potter feel. Young magical boy orphan gains magical ability, meets smart girl who questions the history at school. I almost didn't read this because it was middle school age. Glad I did- so far I'm having trouble putting it down

The Way of Kings (The Stormlight Archive #1) (Audiobook) - DNF 17%.
The Way of Kings - Brandon Sanderson

Technically, this is competently written, and the narrators do a decent job with their parts once I sped up the playback to 1.25 times normal speed. But... 

 

I was bored a lot of the time. It got interesting for awhile. I like Kaladan and Shallan, but they don't make up for the clunky world-building or the overall awkward tone of the writing. This reads like an opus to fanfic much of the time, and it's cringe-worthy fanfic at that.

 

And the whole lighteyes/darkeyes thing just feels weird. Like the author wanted to include something about racism, but didn't want to start up a sh*tstorm by doing it badly, so decided that eye color made a good alternative. Maybe he heard about Jane Elliot's blue eyes experiment and figured it was a good stand in. It's not though.

 

If this were only 200 or 300 pages, I might feel compelled to power through to the end, but there are another 800+ pages to this thing, so my patience has run dry.

All You Need Is Fudge
All You Need is Fudge - Nancy CoCo

Allie is out walking her dog, Mal when Mal pulls her to the lake and they find the body of socialite Carin Moore. Carin's murder is a puzzle for all as her boyfriend's sister is framed for Carin. Allie knows that Paige did not murder Carin and since Trent is not returning her calls, she decides she has to find out all she can so that she can try and prove that Paige is innocent, along the way she learns some of the local secrets and is threatened. 

 

This story did have me believing it was one person and I was totally surprised at the end. Good read. Can't wait to have cooler weather so that I can try some of the fudge recipes.

The Deep by Nick Cutter
The Deep - Nick Cutter

This book started out ok, but then it quickly descended into a madness of its own. It went on for far too long and I just wanted it to end.
Not a fan of this one, sorry.

The Bourne Identity - Robert Ludlum

 

 

Ha!

 

His female companion is a CANADIAN.  And she is from CALGARY.

 

Oh, we are wild & crazy wenches, we Calgarian women!

 

 

Made me giggle.
