Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel

I have just one book to read to reach my goal of reading the books I got from the library. This in turn does mean that my advance copies and kindle copies are languishing with lack of attention.

Royal Assassin (Farseer Trilogy #2) by Robin Hobb

This is the one time where I want to go back and change my rating of the first book of the series to a four star rating to prove how much this one's five star rating indicates my feelings.

It has been a while since I wrote almost back to back reviews and it feels odd being back to it. I am of course referring to the book I reviewed last night (I Know a Woman by Kate Hodges). This is a very intriguing series, a little brutal but with an abundance of historical… Continue reading The Play of Death (The Hangman’s Daughter, #6) by Oliver Pötzsch
