Reading update is Music in the Hills ( Dering Family #2) by D E Stevenson. At last, I’m enjoying this book, and the characters are better, and plenty to dryish humour.

 

Read 77% of  The Hanging Tree (Rivers of London #6) by Ben Aaronovitch. Also enjoying this one, but some rather slow in parts, with too much of the details re. police procedure, so it drags on, for me. 
 

Finished with Rivers of London Vol. 2: Night Witch (Rivers of London graphic novels #2). So now I know what is doing on when Grant, Nightingale et. al. are  talking about when are referring to The Russians. The story was good, and good to know more details about Varvara Sidarovna (the Night Witch from "Broken Homes").

Read recently

The Girl in The Tower: (Winternight Trilogy #2) by Katherine Arden, which I really enjoyed the first half, but found the storyline(s) weren’t so good later on because 

Spoiler

I couldn’t get the ideas that Vasya’s brother and sister, both very religious people (especially her brother being a monk) living in medieval Russia, could cope with the concept of Vasya being a witch, though still be not evil.) 

 

Rivers of London, Volume 4: Detective Stories

(Rivers of London graphic novels #4. Hmm, not bad, but I found this graphic novel not as good as more volumes.

 

Currently reading  

 Rivers of London: Cry Fox: Volume 5 (Rivers of London graphic novels #5). 
 

The Winter of the Witch (Winternight Trilogy #3) by Katherine Arden

My reading mojo is in a lull.

It was doing well, then while reading Wendy Jones’ The World is a Wedding there was a sudden and rather gory description (at a funeral director in the 1920s) that I was horrified by it!

It just seemed to be gratuitous gore. Now I don’t want to go back to the book anymore. :unsure:


So, back to The Winter of the Witch (Winternight Trilogy #3) by Katherine Arden.
