Had a rather nice surprise today: (Warning, don't open these spoiler tags unless you want to be jealous.)



This was followed by this; (I wanted a video of Mr Burns laughing when a window cleaner is hanging from his wall, but couldn't find it.)

Finished The Beast Must Die, I have pretty mixed feelings about it.

Finished Watchers in Death today. It was... well it had good moments, but if it weren't for the utter debacle of Throneworld, this would be the weakest book of the series.



That said the book did have some good parts;



So on the whole this novel had it's moments, but i'm looking forward to the next novel which will hopefully get us back to a great read and not just an acceptable one.

Yeah, i had a feeling it would be a filler novel. Considering the next two books after watchers in death takes us back to ullanor again, and then the post finale.

Regarding..
