I'm reading Galaxy in Flames, the third book in the Horus Heresy series. It's amazing how they've managed to tie in a series where nearly every book is written by a different author in together so well, although that said, after the first three the exact order that they're read in from what I understand isn't particularly important

I finished Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children and didn't really enjoy it. The story itself was fairly interesting, but I didn't like the protagonist very much, I felt the prose was a little stilted, and the conceit with the photographs bothered me immensely, for some reason.

Marley and Me. I've read it before but I liked it so much that I got myself a copy and I'm rereading it once more.

I can't see how it is cheery. Why I passed it up. Did Midnight Rising mention how Harriet Tubman was nearly on the raid or how Loisa Mae Alcott and the New England Writing Colony meet him?

Really liked it too. Amazing how the book took off.

Bwahahah! I was joking. It's grim, but not for the reason I'd expected. The really depressing aspects are the tunnel vision of physicians and medical scientists, the perfidy of the tabacco industry, the magical thinking of patients and lobbyists and the snail's pace of any progress.
