The Colour of Magic  - Terry Pratchett I enjoyed the first plotline of this book, but the second, third and fourth plot lines really didn't wow me. I felt like the same jokes were being told over and over again. Rincewind is panicking! Twoflowers is oblivious! Death is at hand but oh they escaped but it just got worse again! ( and again, and again, and again )

There were some interesting cultures, but they were never defined as more than passing anecdotes. Twoflower's passivity and emotional blankness made it hard to care about the character. I have no idea why Rincewind didn't abandon him to a well deserved death. Death and the Luggage are the best parts of the book
Dead Harvest (The Collector, #1) - Chris F. Holm Classic noir story with an unrelenting pace. Sam Thorton makes a classic antihero, and the various chase scenes are movie worthy. Sadly the female characters are all sadly underdeveloped and viewed through a 1950's mentality.
Magic of Thieves (Legends of Dimmingwood, #1) - C. Greenwood Sadly, I found Ilan a completely unlikeable character. She never has anything positive to say or think about anyone around her. As she is accompanied by a cast of cardboard characters and an equally self centered boy, I did not enjoy this book.
Fathomless - Jackson Pearce This is a fascinating deconstruction of "The Little Mermaid". The ending was opposite to what I was expecting, which was great. However, there was one nonsensical bit - surprise werewolves?, which I will assume makes more sense if you've read the previous books.
