Just finished the Left-Handed Booksellers of London by Garth Nix.
First of his books I have read.
Quite enjoyed it.

I am binge re-reading the Falco novels of Lindsey Davis and binge listening to the Matthew Bartholomew novels of Suzanna Gregory (I do this while exercising and walking).

I've always found Sanderson's books to rattle by even when he's world building. No read the Stormlight Archive yet.

Trying to plough through Life and Fate by Vassily Grossmann at the mo'.

Just finished Solutions and Other Problems by Allie Brosh. Spent most of the time laughing!

I enjoyed ready Player One; it was quirky and had a good plot, so when i saw Ernest Cline had written a sequel I pre-ordered the new book.
The first couple of chapters were as good as the original book but then the ‘adventure’ became very scrambled and convoluted; the story became about nerdish facts that went on and on. There were more facts that the average nerd would know. The section on Price was, to me, extremely annoying; I don’t like him or his music. I am not a child of the 80s so you may feel differently.
I got to the stage where I was not interested in the fate of the heroes.
I got to the stage where I knew I had to read the whole book but I wanted to ability to fast-forward through the story. Maybe a film version would put back the vitality back in.
