Just finished Ben Aaranovich's latest book 'Broken Homes' which is the 4th in his ongoing 'Rivers of London' series about Peter Grant, an ordinary unassuming PC in the Met who just also happens to be a trainee wizard. Its very readable urban fantasy set in the streets of London, and well worth a read.

Ancillary Justice was everything it was hyped up to be. I loved every page of it. I'll be ordering the sequel in the next couple of days.

In the meantime its time for me to explore the Expanse

Leviathan Wakes was fricken epic! I devoured every single page. Highly recommended and I have already ordered the sequel.

And now from the start of one series to another:

Oh, yeah, I have this one and I want to try it. There is a fanclub here, pretty devoted. They are in a regular contact with David Weber (he was here a few times). I have a friend who is a professional writer, wrote a few military sci-fi books and for some reason, became a friend with Weber. It is a weird thing that I never read it, yet I know some good details about this series (which was sold out and reprinted a few times) thanks to friends I have who are absolutely in love with this.

Yeah its a great fun read so far and I like the lead character right away. About 50 pages in and I can already tell I'm going to need to go to Book Depository and order the next one. I just can't do electronic books, I need a novel in my hand as I yell at the kids to get off my lawn Oops

Yep, thatīs what I was told: "You canīt buy it in print but it is an electronic version." I got a Kindle last year but I took it out twice. No matter how heavy the book gets, I just need to have a real book.

I always check the Book Depository which is cheap with free postage world wide or I try Ebay. If either of those fail, and that rarely happens mind you, then I got hunting through some second hand bookshops.

Reversing the polarity of the neutron flow. I bet that means something. It sounds great.

You say that now, but when you get to know Honor Harrington, you won't care either. Oops

I'm about 160 pages in and I adore this book. I love it so much I already ordered the second one.

You wonīt believe it but I was aware of it, I just have problems to delete parts of the quoted text. I generally delete part of the text I *want* to quote, and sometimes the quote tags as well, then I need to go back and do it again. I am totally useless when it comes to this stuff so I just decided to give up Grin

I have about 10 new books to read so I am between books right now - deciding what to read next.
I finished "The Doomsday Book" a week ago, and it was very depressing reading. Great, detailed descriptions of the 14th century, though.

Planet of the Apes, Marvel movie adaptation, used to get the comics when I was a kid, my grandma saved them for me, only one newsagent for miles had them, always had a glass of bitter lemon whilst I devoured them...
happy memories

Cat's Eye by Margaret Atwood. I like her writing, but this isn't as good as 'A Handmaid's Tale'.
But this is for my book club, where there is intense opposition from several older members to anything remotely SF/Fantasy/Dystopian etc AngryAngry

On Basilisk Station was fantastic. The second book can't arrive fast enough.

I have a pile of books to be read and I'll choose the next one when I'm more sober.

Tove Jannson. The Summer Book. Haunting!

Travisina I have read an enjoyed a novel by Atwood which memory insists on serving up as Orac And Krake. Another haunting book with animals abit like Og unless I have confused it in my mind with Animals. I hate it when that happens. I have also started Game of Thrones. I like it but keep thinking of the Starkadders of Cold Comfort Farm!

LOL - I didn't make that connection; it's years since I read CCF. Must dig it out again, especially since 'The Archers' is becoming more like it with every episode.
