I’m in the Duchy of Valdemar with Duke Kordas, hoping to escape Beyond the reach of the Empire.

I'm doing a "casual re-read" of Wheel of Time, and only just hit the Winternight chapter of Eye of the World. I can't read House of Leaves every day - it overwhelms my brain. WoT is the perfect "comfort food" complement.

I'm in the Risen Kingdoms with A Labyrinth of Scions and Sorcery.

Finished my "fantasy bingo" for the year WAY earlier than usual, so I'm freed up to read anything I want, and I'm way late diving back into this series after loving book 1 several years ago now.

In the dukedom of Esdragon (or looks like we'll be departing from there to lands unknown, actually) in The Wandering Duke.

Finished House of Leaves, which is a post-modern horror book about a guy who finds and annotates a book about a movie about a mysterious house. I really don't know what to think about it. It gets 10/10 for creativity, but goes over the top with post-modern pretentiousness (there are over 400 footnotes, and there is an entire storyline in the footnotes which is material to the overall story.) I thought the ending was OK, which is the most-criticized part of the book by even the positive reviewers.

Still on my slow, casual re-read of The Eye of the World to prepare for the WoT TV show. Just started "Leavetaking."

I read Unnatural magic which I didn't love as much as I'd hoped. Now I'm visiting Lovecraft country.
