My first arbitrary read of 2015 is...

‘Fireborn’ by Keri Arthur. Well, I suppose it was going to happen at some point. I’ve finally picked up the kind of book that I would never normally go anywhere near. Urban fantasy, apparently. It’s the first part of a fantasy series which, as far as I can tell, is going to be about a feisty supernatural heroine and contain all sorts of pseudo-intellectual musings about life and spirituality. Maybe I’m being too harsh. Hmmm, the very first sentence is about dreams. Yeah, that sounds about right.

'Hamel, the Obeah Man' is finally done!

Considering I first picked up this book as an arbitrary read about two months ago, it is a great relief to finally be able to say that it is finished.  Not that I disliked it, but there is something about having a book sat on your shelf unread week after week that feels like silent condemnation and judgement.  Or maybe that's just me...
