Can Xue, The Last Lover
I've read all but the Xue (about 40 pages into that one) and there were some promising things about each that I liked when I read them over the past few weeks. Each is very different from the others and that perhaps is a very good thing. Also finished Lev Grossman's The Magician's Land, but I'm going to wait until the first week in August before I post that review. I will say that it was a very good conclusion and there are things about it that are lingering with me now, but those are more personal memory triggers than anything that should be a central part of a review.
