My reading pile: October 2015

Reading pile Oct 15I have another stack! From bottom to top; The Aeronaut’s Windlass, which I got on the day it came out but unfortunately life has got in the way of reading…I was lucky enough to hear a snippet from Jim Butcher himself on a web conference and it sounds amazing, so RAGH to not having time! Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell; Spark & Carousel (which I have already read in ebook format), Dead Beat (my current Dresden homework) and then Proven Guilty, and finally three books that I picked up from BristolCon if I don’t get more urgent reading before I get to them. I’ve also got A World of their Own by the Alliance of Worldbuilders that I’m halfway through (it’s upstairs on my bedside table).

As for what I’ve read…on Kindle, I’ve finished the first two in the Sandman Slim series by Richard Kadrey, and the third is on my I-don’t-have-money-right-now list – I’ve got a review of them coming! I’m also going to review The Copper Promise by Jen Williams, as I’ve got The Iron Ghost on my list. I’ve also finished London Falling by Paul Cornell, who I met at BristolCon and totally did not fangirl over – yay for cool me – but I want to read the next few in the series before I review them; I’ll just say that they’re excellent if you like police procedurals with an added dose of supernatural!

I’ve also read the last Pratchett. It made me cry. That’s all I’m going to say.

Having given up on one book that I’m not going to name, I’m currently reading The Mage’s Grave by Timothy Cerepaka – I think it was a recommendation from Fantasy Faction. It’s quite a chatty style, which is a little disconcerting, but it’s fun so far – I am only four chapters in, but I’m liking it.
