    I’m on a re-read of Sandman by Neil Gaiman. Love that story and it’s another series being made into a TV show that I am excited to see.

    Currently finishing Mountains Beyond Mountains - it's about Paul Farmer and the Partners in Health Program. Incredibly inspiring

    I'm reading "And a Bottle of Rum: A History of the New World in Ten Cocktails" I am very much enjoying it!

    I'm reading A Blight of Blackwings by Kevin Hearne.
    It's a cool fantasy series with an interesting way of telling a story from multiple PoVs!

    I finished reading The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and now I'm on Afterlife with Archie, both series by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa. I'm on a comics kick! I'm going to start Eye of the World again here soon, but got drawn in :look by the comics. :lol

    Is this a follow-up to "A History of the World in 6 Glasses?" That had a similar premise, but starting in prehistory. It was really good!

    It's a completely different author, so I don't think so. "And a Bottle of Rum" is specifically the history of rum

    A super steamy romance called Rafe: A Buff Male Nanny. It sounds like a parody but is actually really good.

    Rereading Liveship Traders by Robin Hobb. I was going to just reread the first book to pace myself with a friend that's rereading. Buuuut I started and now I only have like 40 pages left of the third.

    I just finished this morning Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson's "Letters from an Astrophysicist" . Now I am reading Carl Sagan's "Billions and Billions" which should be finished tomorrow. Then I will get back to finishing book 3 of The Licanius Trilogy by Brent Weeks.

    I am having a lot of fun reading! :)

    I am re-reading the Warlord Chronicles by Bernard Cornwell. I'm on the second book Enemy of God right now.

    I love Robin Hobb but the Liveship Books are not my favorite. Assassins Apprentice is one of the best. The Farseer Books are my favorites. I see so many similarities between Sanderson's Wit and Hobb's Fool.

    Yeah, I stranded in the Liveship trilogy :( Some parts of the story are facinating, but not enough to hold me in :(
    It may be contributed to the fact that I had read everything about Fitz and the Fool first, and thus know a lot about how things end up :look

    I just started the Liveship trilogy today. Tried reading it years ago but didn't get far. I really want to read that and the dragon books but it's so sad when there's no Fitz. I read the Farseer trilogy for the first time in high school and I love all the Fitz books so much.

    I actually started with the Soldier Son trilogy but that one broke my heart too much. I'll give it another go sometime.

    I have a copy of The Shining that I bought at the Stanley Hotel several years ago that's been on my mind since I knew I would be off a while. I just don't know if I will be too distracted to focus on reading.

    Wild Swans: Three Daughters of China by Jung Chang.
    Amazing book about the author's family in China during the 1900s. I'm about 2/3 of the way in.
