Well, it's holiday time yet again, so finally time to make up for the sloooowwww progress I've made in reading though termtime. Top of the list: A King's Ransom... 170 pages in so far... *happy sigh* Really think I need to go back and read the Justin de Qunincy books once I've finished this (not immediatly I finish, just within the next 5 years or so). I'm also keen to read a few more of the stories in Dangerous Women, which by some miracle I managed to renew at the library. I guess all the GoT & Outlander fans had already rushed out to buy it or something.
On the audiobook front, I'm keen to knock off the last 3-ish hours of Shift pretty soon & make a start on Daughter of Smoke & Bone. This is for a group challenge over at GR: this particular task is to read a book set in a school (so it better bloody be!!). My Silo fever appears to have burnt itself out for now, but I dare say I'll be back for the 3rd installment - Dust - at some point. Might wait until the library has an audio version tho.
I also have the next volume of Twin Spica to read - finally!! For some inexplicable reason it's been 6 months since I finished #9, although prior to that I was grazing my way through at the rate of one per month. Hope I've not forgotten too much of the detail in the meantime.
Must try and finish Love's Will. I was really enjoying it before I was distracted by Wool. And then Shift. It's a bit more of a strugle to go back to Just This Once -

mostly because of the hero being The All Black Captain... I can't help but think how infuriated I'd be if our current Captain Fantastic ended up hitched to a non-kiwi. I know I'm being irrational here, but it's seriously impacting on my ability to enjoy the story

(show spoiler)

- so that may end up as a dnf, which is a bit of a shame as I wanted to like it.
