I am reading Whispers Underground by Ben Aaronovitch - love these books, Rivers of London was awesome and they are only getting better!

On Kindle I am reading "The Anniversary Man" by RJ Ellory. A proper "serial killer thriller" with hidden depths. Ellory never writes a straightforward tale.

Just read First Man of Rome then Grass Crown by Colleen McCullogh, back-to-back. Took a while, but worth it.

Think I'll read How to be a Woman, as a contrast before I read the next two Masters of Rome books.

The Twelve by Justin Cronin.

I'm disappointed with this. I'm half way through and no real momentum has built up. The story is disjointed, some bits are overly long, some characters are not around long enough to care about. It's a weak sequel (so far).

Shadow Of Night, which so far isn't as good as a Discovery of Witches

The Comedians by Graham Greene.

As usual I find Greene difficult to read - I know he's a famous author but somehow for me the words don't flow.

Wow, Divergent was something else! Excellent, have immediately ordered the second in the trilogy. And "The Magpies" was a great psychological thriller by Mr Edwards - totally engrossed me.

Now I'm onto:

Print Book The Wicked Girls by Alex Marwood. A re-read for me as I need to review it. Much better this time round even though I enjoyed it last time I obviously wasnt in the right frame of mind.

Kindle. Crimes against Magic - Steve Mchugh. Very good so far, looks like another series I will have to add to my ever growing list!

As it happens I've just started Capital . we can compare notes when we have finished!
I really enjoyed it. Thought the collection of characters were really interesting and I loved how he portrayed how people can live in the same road and not know each other. It was a really good book, that reflected the different lives of so many people.

The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson

Hope its good
I enjoyed it. Loved all the characters, but like dolphin says below it was a strange book.

I enjoyed it, but it's a strange book!
I did enjoy it, just can't explain why exactly

I dropped The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared in the bath. Oops!

At long last I've got my hands on Gone Girl. Very excited about this one.

I loved Divergent but wasn't fussed on Insurgent, and gave up a third of the way through. I think the problem was I'd read the first book a year before the most recent and had forgotten who some of the characters were.

I may reread the first one and then try Insurgent again as I think she's got the next one out later this year.

I'm going to read it soon so I am fairly fresh in my mind! Yep the last of the trilogy is out in October I think.

As for me: Crimes against Magic: Awesome. Loved it. I love a good Urban Fantasy.

Now I'm onto -

Print book - City of Bones (Mortal Instruments 1) by Cassandra Clare

Kindle book : Cold Killing by Luke Delaney. A new author to me recommended from the lasses, Hannah and Kate, who tweet on behalf of Harper Collins UK. They havent set me wrong yet so I will always read their recs - mostly of course its from Harper Collins published books but they do rec other books as well if they love 'em. If you are on Twitter they are worth a follow @KillerReads

I'm not worth following really but I'm @Lizzy11268

Have got into this now - maybe it's just the beginning of his books I find difficult?

I'm learning something anyway about Haiti under Papa Doc.

I have just started reading Where or When by Anita Shreve. It's not grabbed my attention yet, but my mum read it before me, and claimed she was unable to put it down, so hopefully I will become more interested in Charles and Sian soon.

I've started on The Name Of The Wind - Patrick Rothfuss. Has a 4.5 average rating on Goodreads so I hope it's a good 'un (mind you 50 Shades of Grey has a 3.60 rating so doesn't necessarily mean anything) .

Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant book. My only commiseration is that you'll have to wait impatiently for the third book with the rest of us.

I'm currently reading "The Light Fantastic" by Terry Pratchett and "The Hundred Year old man who climbed out of the window and disappeared"
