Is Wicked Business the next in the what's-her-name-the-Salem-pastry-chef series? I actually liked the first one. The character is pretty much Stephanie without the excess baggage but it was pretty well done, considering.

Yes, that's the one! I have no memory of reading the first one. I don't know if that's because I didn't or because of my crappy memory. :oops:

One for Q.

First look at China Mieville's latest.
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

I'm reading and loving 'The Amber Spyglass' by Philip Pullman. Interesting book to read after The Long Earth. ;)

About a hundred pages into Half Sick of Shadows (my reading pace has slowed for some reason :roll: )
Not bad actually. Very different to Apocalypse cow but really readable.
The main character is quite likeable and is developing in an interesting way.
The use of language and innocence through a young narrator reminds me of The Book Thief or The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas.

Tha author is a little over descriptive at the start but gets over this and so far the book is flowing well :D
Definitely not laugh at loud but enjoying it so far :D
