I really enjoyed it. However it is a rather long read. It moves a little slowly at times (at least it did for me). If you are a fan of Gaiman you should definitely read it. It is worth it!

They are the best when you want to give your brain a break! I don't know how I'm going to last until Book 11.

Hi Jill. Wonderful. I can't believe how many books you've read. I need to retire and just stay home and read. Happy reading.

The idea of being retired and reading sounds so wonderful!!! Except for the part that I'd probably have to be older than I am for that to be reality!

Congrats, I think that's a big milestone, breaking the one-book-a-week barrier.

Curious what you thought of The Magicians? I was bored by it, but I think it might have been because I was expecting something different.

Freedom by Jonathan Franzen (Published 2010)

Great House by Nicole Krauss (Published 2010)

Skippy Dies by Paul Murray (Published 2010) I’m including this despite the fact that I didn’t love the ending.

If I had to pick only one book out of these 10 to say was my most favorite, I think it would have to be Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.
