I added this book to the top of my to-read list because it seemed like every other book-reading friend of mine had read it. I had no idea what it was ...more

it was amazing
I went into this with a recommendation and little else; I had no idea what I was getting into. What started as a kind of Renaissance-era con tale took ...more

I had seen that a few people thought this novel suffered from a sophomore slump, but I couldn't disagree more. It wouldn't have been a great novel if ...more

it was amazing
The second part of the Henry VIII story from an uncommon point of view was much easier to digest and follow than the first. Perhaps it was because I ...more

The Republic of Thieves (Gentleman Bastard, #3)
4.23
really liked it
Well-written, and the over-arching story moved forward, finally, but I think it fell a bit flat at times.

I get that we needed a flashback to learn how

No Country for Old Men

really liked it
Not nearly as bleak as the other McCarthy novels I've read, but still pretty sparse. I read this (well) after seeing the film, and it's amazing how ...more

Wolf Hall (Thomas Cromwell, #1)
3.87
really liked it
The familiar Henry VIII story, told from another side. Thomas Cromwell is painted in a decidedly different light.

Probably my favorite so far, even over A Storm of Swords, which a lot of people think is the best. The story has grown so large, and the characters ...more

A Clash of Kings (A Song of Ice and Fire, #2)
4.41
it was amazing
Even better than the first book -- more rich characters, more interconnected storylines, better storytelling. Already started A Storm of Swords.

Doomed (Damned, #2)

liked it
The end dragged on with not much of a payoff, but the other three-fourths of the book were darkly hilarious (and gross.)
