You are a faster reader than I am. I am around half-way through with Book 5 and have really been enjoying it. I liked, but didn't love, Book 4. I find Book 5 to be a welcome return to the Reaper in all his baddassery.Just finished book 5 (Dark Age) of the Red Rising series by Pierce Brown. Holy cow, that was EPIC!
The multiple point of view characters in Book 4 was kind of clunky. Switched w/ every chapter, was a bit disjointed, and some of the character arcs just weren't as interesting as others. In Book 5 he follows an individual character for several chapters, until he reaches a more natural stopping point before switching. Also I found all of the character's stories more interesting this time around.You are a faster reader than I am. I am around half-way through with Book 5 and have really been enjoying it.

I saw the Six Glasses book at B&N the other day and was really interested by it. Added it to my list.I only read non-fiction. Two recommendations there would be:
Live from New York: The Complete Uncensored History of Saturday Night Live as Told By It's Stars, Writers and Guests
Interview style storytelling through all the years of SNL, up through I think about 2014-2015. Great if you're mid-40's to mid-50's and grew up with SNL.
A History of the World in Six Glasses
A great look at the impact of the world's economy through 6 beverages -- beer, wine, spirits, coffee, tea, and cola. For instance, Coca-Cola was the first beverage you could produce the syrup, then anyone with a seltzer gun or bottling plant could produce it. And they feel it was important to our success in the WWs because the soldiers could hold the iconic bottle, sip a familiar taste and feel like they were home for a brief moment.
