Enjoy. :)

I've never read Neverwhere. But I enjoyed American Gods a lot.

I am reading Gunmetal Magic atm.

Did you like?

I finished Shifting Shadows; not sure what to read next, maybe Seanan McGuire's The Winter Long.

I did like it. I'll read the next ones, too. They're more like A- books to me; they're not up to Patty or Illona Andrews' books, but still good. I *love* Oberon.

I'm almost halfway through Deborah Harkness' The Book of Life. Then, given your endorsement, I'll devour Seanan's The Winter Long. Maybe I'll skim through Rosemary and Rue first, if I can find the time.

Oh, the wealth of books that arrived on my doorstep today!  Shifting Shadows, The Winter Long, and House Immortal (by Devon Monk).  I'm gazing fondly at the stack while I finish my re-read of Rosemary and Rue, based on Charmed's comments  :)  (I may have to take breaks and sneak in a story from Shifting Shadows here and there.)

I've decided to OD on romance. :)

Reading Hung Up (dt. Wie wir uns aus Versehen verliebten / How we fell in love by accident) by Kristen Tracy, YA telephone romance.

And as eBook to read I went through my dating centrale shelf and picked up How to start dating and stop waiting, by Peter Jones.
“Humans need fantasy to be human. To be the place where the falling angel meets the rising ape.”

Terry Pratchett, "Hogfather"

Finished The Winter Long  :-LOVE
Read Nalini Singh's Rock Addiction, decent, but definitely NOT in the same style or quality as her other material. It read more like erotica (which is just fine, but not quite what I was expecting).

Been reading a lot lately; at the moment I'm reading The Midnight Queen by Sylvia Izzo Hunter. It's a YA fantasy.
