I have to many favorite books to list and most of you know which they are.
I am not sure if I am going to read since for some time now I somehow haven't got the patience to read but if I am reading than I will continue reading Prudence (The Custard Protocol, #1) by Gail Carriger

Lauren Smith I wonder if any of us could pick a favourite book! I'll just give you my favourite book from last year:
The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August by Claire North

This morning I finished reading this Colours in the Steel (Fencer Trilogy, #1) by K.J. Parker

And now I'm going to start this: The Raft by Fred Strydom , because I'm going to the book launch tonight.

It's difficult to select a favourite of all time, but I'll go with these two:

Anne of Green Gables (Anne of Green Gables, #1) by L.M. Montgomery and 84, Charing Cross Road by Helene Hanff

I'm busy reading W is for Wasted (Kinsey Millhone #23) by Sue Grafton and The Faerie Prince (Creepy Hollow, #2) by Rachel Morgan and listening to Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman .

How is the new series by Gail Carriger Barbara? I'll get there soon, but would like to know what you think.

I have read a little over a third of the book and I am enjoying it but the PP was so good that both the FS and the CP are less good.
The CP has the same humor but it misses the great interaction between Alexia and Conall. We do get to see a lot of our favorite characters all grown up which is nice, because I am often left wondering what happens with the children in a book and now I know.
It gives us a lot of the same in how events unfold and how characters respond to them. Which is nice because it is what we liked about the first series but it is also getting a bit old and has me searching for what makes Prudence different as an individual and not just an extension of characters we know.
There are some hints to future events that have me going: "no no no" but which are no surprise as they were alluded to in the PP.
But as I said I 'm only a third in and most of it has been introducing both old and new characters and setting the scene. Who knows where the book takes us.
