    I just finished Ubik by Philip K. Dick (weird name) And it was bit weird to read SF that's written in 1969 and the timeline were set in 1992 :lol It's nowhere near how it was in 1992 for real :D

    Looking forward to this one and the next Jeryn.

    Re-reading the Amanda Garret series by James Cobb. An interesting take on modern military/Political/techno type thriller. A bit like Tom Clancy's better books.

    Finished traitor spy 3 and then read fantastic beasts and where to find them, the movie had better be a lot better than the book!

    Now reading Cold Fire by Kate Elliot book 2 in the spiritwalker series, read the first one a few years back so thought it was time to finish the series. Ok story but nothing spectacular.

    I am currently OBSESSED with the Outlander series. OBSESSED I SAY. I'm on the last book. :cry There are a couple of offshoot novellas concerning one of the characters, but I'm not sure if I'll read those or not. Maybe as a filler until the next book is out?

    The John Grey books are quite fun! They're more mystery novels than the Outlander books are, but I liked them a lot!

    I've just finished The last confession of Thomas Hawkins by Antonia Hodgson, which is a sequel to her The devil in the Marshalsea. If you like historical fiction I highly recommend these, they are brilliant. They are set in the 1700s in London and read like crime novels, with a very witty main character with a weakness for punch, bad women, and gambling :p
