Wednesday reading notes

What I just finished: Cold Days by Jim Butcher (wow, is Harry Dresden getting over-powered or what?), and a few days earlier A Memory of Light, which I mentioned in an earlier post.

What I'm reading now: The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan (reread) and Powers by James Burton. (I probably won't do a straight back-to-back reread of the whole WOT series, but it was interesting to go straight from the end of A Memory of Light back to the beginning and see how many of the things and people that were important in the end are there right at the beginning. TEOTW does sag in the middle, though -- I remember bailing on at least one reread halfway through, and I haven't even got to the ill-conceived flashback section with Mat and Rand yet.


What I might read next: time for something that isn't fantasy, I think. Maybe Leviathan Wakes, by James S Corey. Or one of the Sister Frevisse mysteries.
