the family tree by sheri tepper (1997)

One of Tepper’s more approachable adventure tales, this sweet journey is fun, intense, exciting, and well worth a couple reads.

Billions

I liked the first season of this show but by midway through season 2 I was annoyed at the irrational decisions the two male main characters were making - and considering that the main draw of this show, for me, was smart people doing brilliant stuff to succeed in high society, I was not interested in the cheap plotting of less-than-brilliant writers.

Although I was still enthralled by this story overall, especially since I just inhaled it from start to book 3 in a single week, I will say that it's harder to follow than the previous two, with a bit of navel-gaziness and a less cohesive and satisfying plot - here's hoping book 4 comes around.

Red Seas Under Red Skies by Scott Lynch

Book 2 of Scott Lynch's Gentleman Bastard series is just as exciting and engaging as the last one, as long as you don't absolutely hate pirate stuff - which I sort of do, so for me it wasn't quite as engaging, but it was still a total page-turner, which is a testament to Lynch's storytelling abilities.
