    Assassins Fate by Robin Hobb. I read the first in the series as a teenager and this is the last of three trilogies with the same characters.
    Totally lived up to my my expectations!

    I just finished The Hanging Tree by Ben Aaronvitch part of the PC Grant series. It was good although I think he series might be starting to lose its pace.

    Also read a young adult by David Baldaci 'The Keeper' which was book two in a series quick pace and interesting.

    Currently reading my guilty secret JD Robb Apprentice in Death. It's book 43 they are terribly formulaic but easy and I can pick up and put down without thought.

    Life After Life (can't remember the author but she's female) - it's a bit of a sliding doors style plot, set in the early 1900's. Best book I've read in a long time.

    I've really enjoyed this series. I was wondering how long he could keep it going for without taking it too far.

    Default what was the last good book you read?

    @Tiny Dancer have you tried Jim Butcher's Harry Dresden books? Similar to the PC grant in that its magic existing within our reality. They are my absolute favourite books. We've been waiting almost 2 years now for book 17 and the series is as brilliant as it was the first book ('Storm Front')

    @binnielici, no, but now I really want to go and buy them 😂😂 I am not sure DH will take too kindly to me adding a minimum 17 more books to my shelves. DH has been impatiently waiting on Patrick Rothfus to finish his current book. It's probanly probably been about 2 years, but I don't think it is his favourite series. I can only imagine how frustrating it must be!

    I feel the same way. But I also feel like I need my space to be organised and tidy, and I'm getting to the point where I'll have to start piles on the floor, because for every book I read/have read, there are 3 more that I want to read!
