the pleasure of reading

So, I indulged in a historical regency romance - Pleasure for pleasure by Eloisa James. Not to give away the ending or anything, but the unexpected best part was when the main character gave birth in the epilogue and she was only in labor for like 40 minutes. I guess this is what my life is becoming -- trying to live vicariously through fictional characters successful birth stories....
406 pages.
I also read part of Duke of Scandal by Adele Ashworth, but the characters were really annoying me so I switched books.
I read about 100 pages.

Red Seas Under Red Skies by Scott Lynch

The sequel to The Lies of Locke Lamora is wonderful. I savored it slowly (and now my library book is overdue!)
