I'm back after a lovely and brief birthday trip which involved museums and now I'm tired but a good tired.

What I just finished reading:

Heir to the Jedi by Kevin Hearne, which I enjoyed. I liked being inside Luke's head and seeing him be awkward and figuring out what being a Jedi means for him. The plot took a broad scope and none of the characters were clearly good or bad, which I appreciated. I've been watching The Clone Wars on Netflix and this felt of the same world. Kevin Hearne is an author I know I can rely on for good adventure books and this one fit the bill.

Aunty Lee's Deadly Specials, I finished this before going on my trip on Monday and it was just as good as the first book. I hope more of these come out as I love finding a new mystery series.

What I'm currently reading:

Lament by Maggie Stiefvater which I'm not enjoying as much as I hoped to. She's one of my favorite authors and I've been trying to read more of her backlist. So far its disappointing since there are moments that read like her later books but there's a lot of showing and the main character is kind of dumb. It feels like a lot of ordinary YA with flashes of how good she can be and I'm curious to see more of how she takes on the Fae. I'm finding it a quick read so I'll probably settle down with it and finish it then move onto something else.

I'm also in the midst of my friend's book though I slowed on that when Heir to the Jedi pulled my attention away, but I'm looking forward to getting deeper into it.

What I'm reading next:

Under a Painted Sky which I'm looking forward to as I love a good historical and the setting of the West is a favorite of mine and this book has been getting strong reviews.

I'm also thinking about reading a nonfiction book, I found one on my trip that I'm thinking of reading soon called Feathers: The Evolution of a Natural Miracle.
