Reading is my favourite thing to do. Scifi and fantasy are my favourite genres, but I also like mysteries, biographies, true crime, and a smattering of historical fiction.

Not Sure

3 stars

I finished this book, but only because I don't like abandoning books, and they have to be really horrible for me to abandon them. But I couldn't get into this book. I wasn't invested in Hadrian, and it didn't really start to get interesting until the last quarter of the book. Maybe the second book is better, but I haven't decided if I'll read it yet.

Right now, I'd give this book a 2.5 star rating. I don't like abandoning books, so I'll see it through, and sometimes I find the first book in a series to be slower than the rest because the author is laying so much groundwork and back story. But right at this time, I could really care less about the fate of the mc. And what is the deal with mcxing scifi and fantasy? Just don't!!!

Ink Black Heart (2022, Little Brown & Company) 4 stars

Ink Black Heart Review

5 stars

This was a good book, except for two things: 1. Maybe I'm just used to writers like Michael Connelly whose books are a third as long as this one was, but I don't think it needed to be over 1000 pages. I was quite tempted a few times to skip to the end although I didn't. 2. Rowling/Galbraith needs to make up her mind about whether Robin and Strike should be together, because it's gone on far too long.

The portrayal of online bullying and hate speech was painfully accurate. I'm assuming Rowling drew inspriation from being at the centre of several online controversies.
