How did your weekend reading go? If you planned on anything specifically, did you read it?

Feh. Meant to read things that weren't Mediterranean-diet recipes. Did not in fact read anything that wasn't a Mediterranean-diet recipe.

It was a very excellent book, and I can't wait to read the next parts of the series.

Recently I've just been polishing off books which were partially finished. I bought some books back when I was looking for a lamp, so I have to make room for what I got, lol.

Planned to have a just-for-fun read - the target was A Civil Campaign by Lois McMaster Bujold. I started it, then decided I obviously needed to read the book preceding it in the series - so I read that one, Komarr, instead. It was a bit of a let-down - I had very much enjoyed several early ones in the series, but in this the cultural aspects seemed a bit slapdash, and the characterisation really set up - the reader so plainly instructed to despise this character, admire this other one... yeah, yeah, I get it, Bujold.

I've read several, and particularly enjoyed the first two. In these two (I'm now half-way through A Civil Campaign) she seems to be just seeing how she can use the established readership to experiment with, in order:
- mystery-thriller genre
- comedy-romance genre
They are both pretty slipshod.

Still reading 'Red Queen' by Christina Henry. Have reached a big reveal, am not at all surprised. Still waiting to work out *why* it fits like that though.

The book is still beautifully written, but it had reached the point where there was only one character unaccounted for, so they had to be the Big Bad. And the explanation for how they got there was somewhat hand waved. But meh, I loved it anyway -- the ending was beautifully ambiguous.
