Finished:

Book 10 of the wheel of time series.
Starting to agree with a lot of comments that the series is suffering in the last few books.

Starting book 11 of the series. Hope it picks up.

Kristallnacht. Interesting read about the year leading to World War 2. The build up of anti-Jewish violence. Well written with plenty of first hand accounts thrown in for good measure.

Starting

Winterwood by Patrick McCabe.
Need a bit of fiction for a change of pace.

Book 11 of the wheel of time series. Not a huge improvement on the last
few books. My opinion on the series at this stage hangs on how it all ends.

Starting
Renegade's Magic, book 3 of the Soldier Son trilogy by Robin Hobb.
Have really enjoyed the series so far. The lead character is so different
compared to a lot of leads in other fantasy series.

Did you like The Graveyard Book?

I got it for my birthday, and I'm wondering if it's any good :

I did indeed, but to be fair, I'm a big Gaiman fan
