Uh, I’m in a little reading slump! Haven’t finished any books last week and I also haven’t made much progress!
I am exactly 50% into The Shadow Rising by Robert Jordan and I gotta say, I’m disappointed. If that’s the best the series has to offer, I’m worried! So far it’s lots of fillers, nothing happens and everyone is acting annoying!
I am on page 227/448 of Assassin’s Apprentice by Robin Hobb and it’s already staring to break my heart again! The illustrations stay beautiful and I’m already so looking forward to the illustrated edition of Royal Assassin!
I am also trying out a few samples at the moment and got stuck with The Paladin by C.J. Cherryh. Long time no see! I am on page 81/384 and enjoy reading about a determined young woman who is training to become a badass swordfighter so she can avenge her family. It’s an Asia-inspired setting so that’s a plus as well!
I have a couple more samples lined up for today. Let’s hope they’re all good so I can add to my Winter TBR^^
Apart from reading and watching wrestling, I’ve started The Haunting of Hill House on Netflix. After 2 episodes in, I enjoy it very much! Sure, it has all the horror clichees, but I’m not expecting anything else and the atmosphere is great! And haunted houses will always be a favourite trope.

Be kind & have a lovely week! ❤
