Night Diver

I can’t believe it’s been a month since I’ve reviewed a book!  Never fear, I’ve been reading the whole time.  I think I got out of sync because I did the thing where I was reading several books at once and just couldn’t finish any of them.  But I’m not sure why I haven’t reviewed this book yet.  It was a total guilty pleasure book that I definitely did not struggle to finish.

The Vanquished

I started reading this book last month, and it was the sort of non-fiction book that made me want to read a pulpy fiction book at the same time.  I took a trip to Barnes & Noble to get book number 2 in Rick Riordan’s Magnus Chase series and walked out $100 lighter.  Always a hazard in my world.  This book was so very dry that I actually started reading three other books since I started it.
