    I've been reading the Rumpole books again by John Mortimer. I'm finishing Rumpole's Return at the moment and may have a knock at Rumpole and the Golden Thread next, or move on to some sea adventure with Hornblower During the Crisis.

    That AC/DC book was good, but slightly confusing.

    Finished Ever After by Aya Ling. Third book in the series. Found the plot to be a tad to predictable and certain parts rushed over towards the end and the main conflict wasn't really resolved. I felt some of the extra thing things towards the end could've been saved for another book and expanded upon.

    Black Key by Amy Ewing. Also a third book in a series. Been a while since I read part 1 and 2 and I'm finding I've forgot a lot of very important details so feeling very lost at the moment since I don't remember the first 2 books properly.

    Finished Black Key by Amy Ewing and Garnet's Story a side story to the first book in the series from the POV of one of the other characters. Black Key finished off the trillogy nicely but wasn't to fussed on the pairings and some of the characters that were killed off during the story, but I feel that was just my personal preference.

    Now reading Glass Sword by Victoria Avery I think it's the second book in the series. It's been forever since I read the first book so it's taking a while to remember who everyone is.

    As far as I am aware just this book. And it is really good if you're a fan of the film.
