'Cause all the cool kids are doing it. But I'll want to do some real write-ups later on some of these.

What are you currently reading?

I'm about two-thirds of the way through a re-read of P.C. Hodgell's fantasy Bound in Blood, volume 5 of the "Chronicles of the Kencyrath." She deserves a better editor: there are some awfully info-dumpy sections. But Jame's voice comes through on most of it, so those bits are tolerable. This time, it occurs to me that Kindrie got better awfully fast: maybe PCH got tired of his woobie-ness. I still think the details of cadet life at Tentir are one of the best things ever. And I liked the scene between Tori and Marc, when Marc was working on the stained glass window.

I've also started the second three-volume compilation of the manga Gunslinger Girl, and I'll probably write it up the series when I finish this one (I usually do manga after I've read the first four volumes, if it's a long series).

What did you recently finish reading?

Seanan McGuire's Rosemary and Rue, the first volume of her Toby Daye series. I blogged it here.

Also, last night I mainlined the latest volume of the manga Blade of the Immortal: vol. 26, Blizzard (they have titles as well as volume numbers). I had been waiting for this one anxiously because the last volume ended on a serious cliffhanger, and this one did not disappoint. I will be blogging it later.

What do you think you'll read next?

I need to do a re-read for something I'm writing. Also, I got the second Toby Daye book. Finally, I might be in the mood for more Hodgell as well, but I'd need to figure out where my copy of Honor's Paradox has ended up.
