    Finished the Lorien Legacies first series. (7 books 15 novellas) Enjoyable series and a break from what I was reading. Some of the novellas were clearly a money grab as they didn't really add much and the story did tend to drag some. Probably could have been cut to fewer books but over all a fun read.

    And just finished On The Shoulders of Titans which is the second book in a series. It is a LitRPG book that was okay. I enjoyed the first book more but will probably give the next book a try when it comes out in a couple years.

    Now going to start on Phil tucker the path of flames.

    I just finished up Elyasium Fire, it was solid. I'm reading a book called Good Guys by Steven Brust now.

    Finished it and The Wise Man's Fear, was amazed. Ttime to wait for the next. Now I'm reading A Time Of Dread by John Gwynne.

    Btw is anyone going to read 'A Hero Born' by Jin Yong? It was just recently officially released in English for the first time. It's the best selling Chinese fantasy and has been marketed as the Chinese LOTR

    Blackwing is done and it was a good book and looking forward to the second book in July. Book works as a stand alone and builds an interesting world.

    Now I'm on to The City of a Thousand faces to hopefully knock out by the end of the month.

    Just finished lost lore it had a slew of different stories ranging from 1 to 5 star. But overall out added a few books to my to be read list as a few of them pulled me in enough to find the stories they were About.

    Next on my list though didn't come from there and it is blackwing.

    I'm reading "Open Tennis, the first twenty years" by Richard Evans.
    It's a book from 1988 and I was inspired to revisit it after watching "Battle of the Sexes" as I wanted to discover more about Billie Jean King and the start of the Women's Tour.

    The fantasy bingo on Reddit has slowed me down on reading multiple series by the same author as you can only use an author once on the board. I'm still going to read trilogies so I won't ever get the black out but I will have a bingo this year.
    Fitz series indeed.
