Finished All Systems Red by Martha Wells a fun read but lots of probable, maybes from computers and  a few other niggles but will get to the rest in time.

Started the Ill Made Knight by Christian Cameron which is a fantastic read so far.

I just finished Red Rising, and oh gods it's so good! 4.5/5 stars. I'm so glad that, because of all the recommendations in FF, I decided to go through with it, despite having DNF'd the book around the first few pages twice before now. The worldbuilding of all the colored races are interesting as hell, and this book had so much twists and turns that every few chapters it'd take off in a direction I'd never expect it to go before. I just can't wait for the second book to arrive already, urgh!

Finished Ghostwater, started Nevernight. Interesting book, trying to get into it.
Kallor shrugged. 'I've walked this land when the T'lan Imass were but children. I've commanded armies a hundred thousand strong. I've spread the fire of my wrath across entire continents, and sat alone upon tall thrones. Do you grasp the meaning of this?'

'Yes' said Caladan Brood. 'You never learn'

I'm reading Reaper Man, and liked it a lot, although I think I'd say I do like Mort a bit more. I'm kind of waiting for my orders of the 2nd and 3rd books of the Red Rising trilogy though.

Seven Deaths of an Empire by GR Matthews.
Ooooh that's on my list, but only next year when the paperpback's out...

I finished The deathless and started with The ruthless, by Peter Newman.
I'm glad I re-read book 1, because although I remembered bits and pieces, not the details, and it makes a lot more sense with all the details.
Also, if you want a writer who actually makes a proper ending in book 1 while at the same time setting the scene for the rest of the trilogy, here you go! Go Pete!
