Currently rereading Assassin's Apprentice by Robin Hobb, and loving it. I last read it about 10 years ago, and I'm so relieved to find that it is as good as I remember it being!

You are in for such a good twist! I liked the first two but the third one is amazing and the fourth ties it all in together and wow :)

I just finished A Girl of Ink and Stars by Kiran Millwood Hargrave and have now started reading The Keeper of Lost Things by Ruth Hogan
Ugh, I'm tired of my signature.

Just finished Jenny Lawson's Furiously Happy. I didn't like it as much as Let's Pretend The Never Happened, but still I'm glad I picked it up. It did make me more determined to get a therapist, so that's something.

I also finished Peadar O'Guilin's The Call. Which was a really cool premise (Fairies are pulling Teenagers into fairy land where they are chased for a day. If caught the fairies torture and mutilate them. Time passes differently so "the call" lasts 3 minutes and four seconds our time. It's 25 years since it started, so now at 10 kids get sent to survival schools to train, but even so only one in ten survive and many survivers are horribly disfigured, plus PTSD) but since I'm having issues with PPA was probably a really stupid thing to read.

I find myself just wanting fairly light fluff with Dragons. It's surprisingly hard to find something that scratches that itch.

PPA as in aphasia? I'm bad at acronyms and when I looked that one up, I found a lot of business buzz words, some computational stuff, a political party, and aphasia.

I think we should all be reading more Patricia C. Wrede. I don't care if it's meant for children.

Sorry, I meant Post Partum Anxiety.

I like children's book.

Just finished Broken Monsters by Lauren Beukes. Damn it was good. But creepy scary. But also odd.

I'm currently reading Snuff by Terry Pratchett. I've read a few of his books since I last posted but still have plenty left to read.
