Yesterday I finished Equal Rites, by Terry Pratchett, which is the third Discworld novel I have read this year, and I am looking forward to many more! I have since started Never Let Me Go, by Kazuo Ishiguro, but I am only 35 pages in thus far so I cannot comment quite yet.

Finished A Maze of Death, by Philip K. Dick (1970). Sci-fi/thriller with high concept, hallucinatory drug-induced imagery, whacked-out religious ideas, and a crazy twist ending. Pretty much what you'd expect from Dick at this phase of his output.

I felt like blowing through some shorter novels this week, so first I started and finished The Maltese Falcon, by Dashiel Hammett (1930). Classic detective novel. Hammett's characters are really well-drawn, and the way Sam Spade plays both sides all the way to the end made this really fun to read. I found this at a thriftshop with The Thin Man, which I've seen the movie awhile ago but am still looking forward to reading soon.

Next I started and finished The Thirty-Nine Steps, by John Buchan (1915). Archetypal WW1 spy conspiracy thriller. Altogether pretty rudimentary, it's not a great book by any means, but it moves along so fast I was never bored.

Started and finished Equal Rites, by Terry Pratchett (1987). Discworld #3. Slowly going through the Discworld series in chronological order. I read the random ones I could find in my teens/twenties and this was one of my favorites, so it was nice to revisit. Next is Mort, which was another one of my favorites. Then after that there's a couple I haven't read.

And finally, yesterday I started The Crossing, by Cormac McCarthy (1994). Second book of the Border Trilogy. Haven't gotten too far into this one yet, but it's entertaining. A rancher and his son hunting for a lone wolf that's killing cattle. Some of the narrative is from the wolf's point of view.

Finished: Equal Rites, by Terry Pratchett I'm sad I'm only getting into his books now, but I'm also glad because I would have mourned him when he died and that would have been hard.

Up next: I thought I would read all the Witches books first but now I'm wondering if I should read the Discworld books chronologically instead...

Finished The Master and Maragrita, by Mikhail Bulgakov

I'm glad I read this (one more notch on the classic novel bedpost) but it didn't blow me away or anything. Bulgakov uses a narrative voice that disappears for chapters on end only to arrubtly make knowing winks to the reader out of nowhere. The story behind the novel is probably more interesting than the book itself.

Started Equal Rites, by Terry Pratchett

I've read a lot of heavy literary books recently and this is the palate cleanser. The third book in the Discworld series; loved the first two.

Equal Rites, by Sir Terry Pratchett


Mort, by Sir Terry Pratchett

What the heck why did nobody tell me about Discworld and STP until Good Omens became a series?

Just finished Atonement, by Ian McEwan

Really enjoyed it, felt for Briony throughout her adult life. The epilogue happened and I am hurt. It was very touching.

Next up I am starting In Cold Blood, by Truman Capote. I have started reading a Discworld book in between other reads and next up is Equal Rites, by Terry Pratchett and I am excited to meet the witches.

Just finished Equal Rites by Terry Pratchett and as always Discworld never disappoints, I loved Granny Weatherwax's no-nonsense attitude.

Started His Majesty's Dragon by Naomi Novik and so far I'm loving the setting. The British captain especially feels just like he comes from an Aubrey and Maturin novel, I have high hopes for this series.

I read Equal Rites by Terry Pratchett on Sun-Mon and started The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch on Tues. I'm about 200 pages into Lies right now.
