Just finished "The Good Fairies of New York". I heard it compared to American Gods, which is sort of apt, but in tone completely different. Like a cross between that and Charles De Lint's work, but on crack. The main characters are a pair of Scottish fairies who end up in New York while on a bender, the worst Scottish fiddler and social malcontent in New York, a bag lady who drinks shoe polish and thinks she's the greek general Xenophon, and the ghost of an obscure punk rocker on earth during the Chinese Hungry Ghost festival looking for his old guitar.
Hilarity and excellence ensue.

Will soon start on "The Books of Magic", including all the stuff that didn't make it into TPBs. That should make the story less confusing.

Well, since I recently discovered the Kobo EReader for the computer, I have been diving into as many books as I can afford. I read / listen to audio books too, so between my audio books, stack of actual books and now my Kobo for PC, I'm officially a reading fiend lately. Currently? An oldie but a goodie. "Go Ask Alice" the diary of a young girl in the 60's who falls through the cracks of the decade and becomes a drg addict.

Since the fuckers at work haven't given me any hours, I've been getting plenty of reading done.

Finally got around to Simon R. Green's "Something From the Nightside" after having these books recommended to me about a bajillion times, and I see why. Very reminiscent of Neverwhere, but with shades of Lovecraft and maybe a dash of Hellblazer, ergo I love it.

Just finished "Boneshaker" by Cherie Priest. Steampunk books are pretty hit and miss with me, much though I love the genre, and this was definitely a hit. Alternate history and zombies, oh my.

Decided to pick A Dance with Dragons back up and finish it. Excited to see what the ending will hold.

The Three Musketeers. At bit longer than I had anticipated - 800 pages,but so far so good. An entertaining romp. Only some 150 pages into it

Just started "The Vampire Diaries Book 2 - The Struggle". After finishing "The Fault In Our Stars" by John Green, earlier this afternoon. I loved it and definitely recommend it.

Still on book 9 of the Wheel of Time.

Haven't found the gumption to go back to it, and I'm really swamped with everything. Maybe once things calm down a bit, I'll finish the series out.

Read the Hunger Games trilogy a little while ago, and thoroughly enjoyed it, despite the lack of character development.

Indiana Jones and the Philosopher's Stone by Max McCoy. Apparently, the guy wrote a whole bunch back in the 90s. Good book so far, Indy's already had to fight an Italian fascist in British Honduras, been questioned by the FBI and fired, and had to climb his way up a dirigible's dangling anchor rope.

Now I want to play a good ol' early 20th century globetrotting RP...
