So, what's going on in my life. Well, I spent the Easter weekend with a group of highly suspicious individuals. And thinking that I might want to go see Guardians of the Galaxy on wednesday.

Also, I should probably get around to doing a doodle, seeing if there's any weekend this summer that people would be interested in dropping by.

What I've recently finished reading

Shirley Jackson: The Haunting of Hill House
I found myself very much liking Eleanor - the spinster who finally does something a little rebellious and then everything ends up going - less than well. She deserved so much better. And I was a little fascinated by Hill House itself - I ended up with a mental image out of German expressionist films.

Johan F. Krarup: Styrelsen

Rachel Aaron: The Spirit Thief
Another result of my need for high fantasy heists, and this one's okay. Not nearly as good as Six of Crows/Crooked Kingdom (I suspect few books are), but Eli Monpress is a charming scoundrel - all the spirits of pretty much everything seems to agree - and it's a very light read.

What I'm reading now

Rachel Aaron's The Spirit Rebellion, which is still quite relaxing entertainment, and Hannu Rajaniemi's The Quantum Thief, which is - I think I might have liked it better if I'd read it when it was published and not now that I've read newer space opera.

What I'm reading next

Rachel Aaron's The Spirit Eater - mostly because it's an omnibus edition.
