Kim's Reading Journal

I don't get fancy with long detailed book reviews - just my short and sweet (and sometimes not-so-sweet) honest opinion!

Currently reading

The World of Ice & Fire: The Untold History of Westeros and the Game of Thrones
George R.R. Martin, George R.R. Martin, George R.R. Martin
The Way of Shadows  - Brent Weeks, Paul Boehmer This was one of my "listen on the drive to work" reads. I just haven't had the time lately to do any other kind of reading! I liked it enough to move onto the next book in the series. I don't know if "listening" instead of reading the book changed the experience for me but it felt like a book that was trying to be tough and gritty but didn't quite make it there. Sure there were assassins but I guess they just didn't come across as dark enough for guys whose lives were killing people. Maybe it was just that the readers voice wasn't strong enough??
