A Breath of Snow and Ashes - Diana Gabaldon I read a little over 200 pages of this book and just lost my steam. I’m not sure this was the right time to pick this brick up. Normally I love Gabaldon’s writing, but this time I found myself annoyed with all the details she included. How Jaime’s hair flows, how he has a smudge on his cheek, how Jaime’s top button is undone and on and on and on. No wonder this tomb is well over 900 pages! That’s not to say I didn’t enjoy some events, but I’m not enjoying it enough to suffer another 600 pages…so I’ll pick this one up again when I’m in a better frame of mind.
