I tried to read Black Obsidian by Victoria Quinn and had to stop much earlier than I intended. Total BDSM focused SMUT fantasy. If that's your thing and you want some edgy pure porn reading, go for it. Nothing relatable about it though and the characters don't act like real people.

I picked up a nice handful of books at a used library sale today, but currently I'm reading Spiritual Enlightenment: The Damnedest Thing by Jed McKenna inbetween Ward chapter releases.

It's really interesting, especially if you come from mainstream spirituality circles.

The Azazel Syndrome by J.E.Kennedy

Still working through my free book list and mostly DNFing them for one reason or another. This turned out to be a pleasant surprise! Right off the bat, he had me hooked narratively. A great post-apoc in a world of summer blizzards, government surveillance, and depreciated currency, where antiques is the business to get into. Loving it so far.

Pink by Stephanie Powell

Great dystopia where only men have been affected by a fatal virus, including any new baby boys born. Very interesting and engaging and great characters.

A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer

Really good Beauty and the Beast retelling. (y)

Ninefox Gambit by Yoon Ha Lee.

I'm really digging the space opera aspects, but I think I'd prefer if he called it straight up magic rather than maths. I've seen a few technical terms tossed around but not in a way that makes sense, and familiar jargon being used improperly breaks immersion for me. But the plot and characters are otherwise spot-on, and I've picked up the second book to continue with.

Moon Burned by H.D.Gordon

Loving this. Great narrative and great world building. Thunderdome. Except with werewolves. And the main character is a badass fighter chick.

Re reading the Cirque Du Freak series, good series that inspired a terrible movie - The vampire’s assistant (seriously, anyone who read the books, John C Riley? Really?!)
I read those years ago and loved them - I fully agree with how awful the movie was too!

I'm currently reading The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson, I finished the Mistborn series by him recently and really enjoyed it so started the next set of books - they're massive.
