Books I've read recently

The Girl in the Tower by Katherine Arden

At first I thought I wouldn't like it much, because it again started quite slow. But the pace picked up sooner than it did in the first book, and I liked the plot better, so I guess it wasn't that bad after all. I'm actually looking forward to the third installment. I almost didn't continue the series, but now am glad I did. (Thanks for the impetus, Book club!)
