Red Seas Under Red Skies, book #2 of the 'Gentleman Bastard' series by Scott Lynch. It's bloody amazing. I am in love with the dialogue and Lynch has just sprung his way up into my top 3. Unfortunately, the series isn't actually finished yet...ughhh!!! I always seem to do this to myself >>


Recently Finished
The Forever War by Joe Haldeman
This one was...interesting. It was what I expected but somehow also not what I expected at the same time.
I honestly can't think of much to write about it :/
3/5

Shakespeare - the world as a stage by Bill Bryson
If you ever want to learn anything about anything, read Bill Bryson's take on it. He presents his information in such an interesting and easily readable way with lots of interjections and stories from around that time. I really enjoyed it and it was a nice reprieve from fiction.
4/5

On the Backburner
The Lives of Tao - I'll get there eventually
Altered Carbon - not a bad book, by any means, but pretty full on. Plus it's a crime/thriller which are really not a genre I tend to enjoy.

Reading one of the books I got a while ago, "The Curious Incident of the dog in the night time". If you haven't read this, I suggest having a look, excellent book.

Since my last post I've finished reading Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg and Lexicon by Max Barry, both having exceeded my expectations. Next on my list is Compendium One of The Walking Dead comics (which I'm already half way through), then I've decided to read the three books required for my Chinese Philosophy course- Tao Te Ching, The Analects, and The Dhammapada- before I start the class on Monday. Lol it's so easy to tell I'm getting old.

Good luck! You've got a lot of reading ahead of you.

Currently I'm reading Dreamers and Deceivers by Glenn Beck. I love this guy.

Started reading '12 Years A Slave' a few days ago. I'm about half way through and really enjoying it. Quite powerful writing at the best of times.

Next I have to finish The Art of Intrusion by Kevin Mitnick. :>
How do you find his writing? I've got Ghost in the Wires on my bookshelf waiting to be read, but it keeps getting bumped down by other things.
It's decent. I'm reading more for the subject matter than I am the writing style in this case. It's very informative but I did find it hard to stay interested after chapter 6 or so. In fact I pushed it back and am reading The Scarlet Letter now instead. xD

I just finished Anna Karenina. I liked the story well enough, but it got pretty hard at times. Tolstoy seems to love having his characters go on long rants about societal politics and religion for chapters on end and I'm just not overly interested in that sort of thing. Still, I'm glad I read it and I can check "Tolstoy" off my list, now!

I also read Shades of Milk and Honey which is advertised as Jane Austin meets fantasy. It was only okay. I kept expecting more from it, but it was exactly as the advertised description so I can't be too upset with that.

I'm currently finishing off the Lies of Locke Lamora. The last time I left off turned out to be about 15 pages before from some super intense, game changing shit went down. I'm loving this book.

In the past week I've started and finished:

  • Strong in the Rain by Lucy Birmingham and David McNeill
  • Rurouni Kenshin: Voyage to the Moon World by Nobuhiro Watsuki and Kaoru Shizuka
  • Animal Farm by George Orwell

    I'm trying hard to finish the books I've started over the past few years since this is the first time in a while I'm getting crazy enjoyment out of reading. Despite this week being dead week of my hardest semester, I somehow made time to read these among everything else, although to be fair they were all quick and easy reads. Next I have to finish The Art of Intrusion by Kevin Mitnick. :>
