Yey, some love for Peter Pan :D
I hope you'll like Assassin's Apprentice, the series is pretty good and Robin Hobb is such a nice person and good writer.

Have fun :)

What did you think of Thirteen Reasons Why? I'm a little hesitant to read it so close to Me Before You, with only one book in between. I've heard Me Before You is an extreme tear jerker and I'm a little afraid that Thirteen Reasons Why will be just as sad. I don't want to end myself into a state of depression! haha
