I haven't been much on reviewing the books I'm reading, but I'll say this one about CJ Cherry's latest in the Foreigner series. Too much explicative narrative on political situations, never give multiple names starting with the same first letter when they are mentioned so often because it makes them hard to differentiate, and this plot line, although interesting when you cut through the drudgery, should have taken up maybe the first half of the book with more happening in the second half. Instead we have a somewhat cliffhanger ending. Dammit CJ, I have come to expect a bit more out of you. 

On the up side, I have the latest Nightside book next in the queue, plus I need to finish up the Color of Magic, which is half read. 

I think next year I'll do the 12 book challenge, which only involves one book a month and reviewing them after. I'm running out of time for the 50 book challenge, and doubt that I'll make it complete by the end of December.
