I've just started a novella in the Rivers of London series, "The Furthest Station" by Ben Aaronovitch, set on the Tube line which I use! It's only just over 100 pages long though.

I'm reading The Witches of New York by Ami Mckay. It's set in the late 19thC and I think it's going to be a fun read! :)

I've just started "The Music Shop" by Rachel Joyce. So far it's a bit like a cross between "High Fidelity" and "Chocolat".

I'm re-reading A Game of Thrones by G.R.R. Martin, and I just started The Sunne in Splendour by Sharon Kay Penman.
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!
