In honour of reading a book for the first time in what feels like years, I went and read three more.

2 - Skin Game by Jim Butcher
3 - Peace Talks by Jim Butcher
4 - Battle Grounds by Jim Butcher


Yeah, just catching up with the latest three Dresden Files books. I had read 'Skin Game' before, but it was ages ago and I thought it would be sensible to remind myself WTF was going on before going in to the new books.

All very much as expected. Despite being very formulaic and silly, they're still extremely enjoyable to read, and packed to the brim with excellent characters, even if everyone is too beautiful and amazing at everything all of the time. Just great fun books.

You’re in the book thread, Z :D

I agree with both posts, though!

I've read many books, but started second-guessing whether any of you would be interested, and stopped listing them,


Keep listing them! I've gotten several recommendations from this thread, but I haven't posted on a lot of them. Also, you're pulling our average WAAAAY up, without you we'd look like a bunch of illiterate goons.
