Wow, this thread moves fast! I've been reading some non-fiction but about to start Our Mutual Friend by Charles Dickens and getting back to Wheel of Time.

Over the past few days I re-read Expecting Someone Taller and Who's Afraid of Beowulf, both by Tom Holt. I read them when they first came out. I decided to re-read them to get into a good frame of mind for a project I've started. Both are light fantasy with classic myths meeting the modern world. The first is about the Ring Cycle, while the other is about Viking Sagas. They both have sudden endings, though I still feel that the one in the first novel just feels better. They're both fun reads, though not as funny as I remembered.

Which was most enjoyable. Now onto Mad Ship, the second in the series.
Which ends in the middle of the action, so I went straight onto the conclusion in Ship of Destiny. A very satisfying conclusion. I'm looking forward to reading the Rain Wild chronicles once I've got them all, which is the series that follows this one.

Next up: The History of the Hobbit by John Rateliff. It looks fascinating.

I finished Cursed Moon, the second of Jaye Wells’s “Prospero’s War” urban fantasy police procedural series, and am not sure what to start next. I have the third book, but haven’t cleaned its formatting to my standards and don’t really feel like doing so at the moment.

What I really ought to do, since I’m trying to go easy on my big laptop due to some damage to its case, is fire that up and shift my Calibre library over to my main external drive, so I can use my netbook to do some of that editing and conversion work. I’ve even moved a powered USB 3.0 hub into position, so I can actually use that drive and an external Blu-ray drive on the netbook, but I need to set aside that chunk of time and make the transfer happen.

It is fascinating. I'm astonished at how fully formed the story is even in the very first manuscript pages.

Dilemma resolved! I’ve got treebook copies of three books in Casey Daniels’s Pepper Martin paranormal mystery series right here. No formatting touchups needed because paper, and they’ve always been fun reads.

(Series premise: The fashionable main character takes a job as a cemetery tour guide, hits her head on a tombstone, and comes to with the ability to interact with ghosts. Word gets out in the afterlife, and the deceased start seeking her out to take care of their unfinished business… like finding their killers.)

Next up: A Hard Day’s Fright, about a woman who died after a Beatles concert in 1966 and needs someone to find and properly inter her body.

Finished The Alchemy of Stone by Ekaterina Sedia. It a story about a mechanical girl who is also an alchemist.

Next up is All These Worlds, the third Bobiverse book. Meanwhile I'm reading the dead-tree format The Asylum for Wayward Victorian Girls by Emilie Autumn and listening to The Legacy of Kings by C. S. Friedman.

That sounds like fun. I bought the first in the series to try. Because it's not like I have dozen of other first-in-series waiting for me to try out, LOL.

This fantasy was most enjoyable. It's not your typical warring wizards but more of a searching journey to stop an unseen evil. The author's writing is top-notch. Witty, concise but with fascinating descriptions. Rated B+ [4 stars].

Next is undecided but will be a library book.

Just finished up The Natural by Bernard Malamud for the July New Leaf Book Club selection. This book as the first distinction of being the first book read entirely before the hour of 7am as I have started reading with my morning coffee every day before I leave for work.

I enjoyed the story, though predictable in places, as a baseball narrative.

Reading CJ Sansom's Lamentation on my Kobo and listening to Carson McCullers The Heart is a Lonely Hunter on my commutes.

I’m a bit further along; as I recall, these are books 7-9.

Finished A Hard Day’s Fright, so now it’s time for a road trip in Wild Wild Death, in which one of Pepper’s exes has been kidnapped and held for ransom. What do they want? The bones of a Wild West show star who died in her city and was interred at her graveyard, and naturally the ghost comes along for the ride.
