What I Just Finished Reading
The Devil Rides Out by Paul O'Grady. This starts when he's 17 and stops just as he's getting into drag. The ending felt a lot like he'd just reached his word count and stopped, so came as a bit of a surprise. It was really interesting though.

Childhood's End by Arthur C Clarke. One of the problems with this book is that although most of it is set in the mid 21st century, it feels like it's still set in the time it was written (mid-50s), in that men and women still have very defined roles in life. But even ignoring that, I really disliked this book by the end. I spent most of it not really knowing what it was about, but then the ending was presented as a great thing for the human race when it felt like it was actually really awful.

What I'm Currently Reading
Leave it to Psmith by PG Wodehouse. I have only just started this one and there's only been one scene with Psmith in it. But I am enjoying it - the characters are all mad/terrible and I can already see how it's all going to go terribly wrong.

What I'm Reading Next
I am really behind on reading books I already owned at the start of the year. So more of that. Despite me occasionally visiting Kobo and buying a few 99p books.
