Wandering through fiction

My thoughts on books I've been reading recently. This isn't going to be literary criticism, but based on my likes and dislikes.

Currently reading

Whispers Under Ground

Whispers Under Ground - Ben Aaronovitch A good mixture of crime and magic. Focuses more on the procedure of crime investigation with the magic as a side effect - the magical creatures (the Rivers, quiet ones and Little Crocodiles) add to the story without detracting from the ingeneous plot. Find myself enjoying each book more and more, especially since this one had moments of making me laugh out loudly in the car on the way home from a long day at work (audiobook - wasn't reading while driving...). The author has a dry sense of humour which suits me perfectly.
