Current Read

Mad Ship, Robin Hobb

Marketing geniuses write in trilogies so that when you get suckered in by the first one, they are guaranteed to pull you into two more books. Suckers like me fall for it every time. For real, though, we have serpents, pirates, dragons, ancient cities, magic, rebellion, civil war and political intrigue...with great characters. I'm totally in.

Ship of Destiny, Robin Hobb

When I finished Mad Ship, I immediately picked this one up and was relieved to see that it picked up exactly where the last one left off. I feel like I'm a part of what's going on - feeling the heartache, excitement, hope and fear of the characters involved - and know I'm going to experience more than a bit of my own sadness when these are done. Oh, the first world problems we face.
