At the moment I am reading The Game Of Thrones series which I am really enjoying.
I enjoyed Red Rising by Pierce Brown and I have the other two books in the trilogy to read when I get the time.

Jacek I read all five novellas, most were at least good, "Binti" was however definitely the worst of the bunch. There's something about this novella which fails to make the reader care about what's happening to the characters.

D.G. I've had the Fifth Season on my TBR for a while...have to move it up now!

Andrew There are many interesting winners this year. It's a good surprise to see "The Sandman Overture", another jewel in a series I love so much.

message 14: by Kristina (new)
