Finished Best Kept Secret. Wow. So far, it's the best release of 2013 for me. It rivals Republic of Thieves, it's that amazing. Best cliffhanger I've seen in a long while.

Started Horns by Joe Hill. Going to see how it goes.

How's Ice Forged? It's one of my WoGF reads.

Just finished A Wizard of Earthsea, was pretty good. On to Ex-Heroes by Pete Clines.

Finished Apocalypse Now Now by Charlie Human. Amazing book. Read it!

Finally finished The Lies of Locke Lamora, having taken Book Club detours for A Wizard of Earthsea and The Dying Earth.

I thought it was... okay.

I get the feeling I'm supposed to be more impressed with it than I am.

Same here. Lies was a fun adventure caper but nothing spectacular IMO.

I started Blood Song by Anthony Ryan. Really good so far ... think its been a while since a book has grabbed my interest this strong, this quick.

Halfway through Horns, but I'm putting it down for the moment. Don't know if the present tense dream sequence by a different POV was the kicker for me or not.

But.....

I HAVE TOMORROW THE KILLING!



Off to go become a hermit. ;D

Listening to about six books via audiobook. Different book for different moods.

1. Anansi Boys - awesome narration. Just really enjoying it, but i haven't gotten into the plot as yet.

2. Lies of Lock Lamora - about 37% in,
Spoiler for Hiden:
when he's supposed to marry the Cappa's daughter.
I'm hanging onto this one because it's supposed to be a must-read. It's not really my jam, not the characters, not the pace, not the plot. I like series about thieves just as much as I like clowns, gorillas, pirates and cowboys, but something about whoever is reading the audiobook, he's really bringing a story I don't like to life and I feel as if I owe it to the narrator to keep going. I'll finish this eventually.

3. Immortal Rules - ?YA not sure, but the audiobook is spectacular. You can feel the emotion in the woman's voice as she goes through a Red Wedding like scenario. Best start I've read in a long time. Kagawa hit the floor running with this one. Love it so far.

4. Complete Zombie Survival Guide. Nothing to say about this. Insanely stupid in a way but well thought out and kinda deep if you think about it. A little repetitive and methodical but thoroughly enjoyable at the same time?IDK. I'm at 61% Might finish it tonight. Yay!
