I read about a third of this a while back, then got into reading non-fiction at night. But now I'm back on fiction at night again.
I've gotten back in to this pretty quickly - I really like it. It's quite different to a lot of sci-fi - it's much more relationship based, less action heavy. (So far at least). It's quite gentle and gently-paced but by no means twee. You get to know the characters and their feelings.
