So, since my last post, I've been continuing my re-read of Terry Pratchett, finishing Moviing Pictures, Reaper Man and Witches Abroad. Great fun as always.

I read the first three books (the original trilogy) of the YA series Chronicles of Ixia by Maria V. Snyder: Poison Study, Magic Study and Fire Study. The story and setting were both quite good and interesting enough that for the first two books I was content to overlook the stiffness in the prose and dialogue, so the first two got 3/5. However the quality seemed to decline in the third, with too much time reminding the reader about what happened previously. It came close to being dropped, so it only gets a 2/5.

Then I read The Lightning Thief (aka Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief) by Rick Riordan, which we will be discussing next week in the New Leaf Book Club. I thought it was fun, but will reserve more comment for club discussion.

And today I dropped out of Map of Shadows by J.F. Penn. I liked the map magic idea, but the recital was flat. All the characters felt the same and the story flow felt forced. Very disappointing, so I gave up on it after 40%.


Not sure where to next.
