There's a fourth? Isn't it a trilogy?

[โ€“] [email protected] 1 points 1 week ago (1 children)

From Manufacturing Consents to Sodom and Gomorrah to The Riddler. That's a nice combination ๐Ÿ˜€

Which one are you liking the most?

[โ€“] [email protected] 2 points 1 week ago (3 children)

The magicians

Lev Grossman's? I read it a long time ago, and while it wasn't a quick read, I remember enjoying it. Haven't read any of the sequels though. Have been thinking about rereading the book and then getting the sequels.

Yeah, some of the books in the middle are pretty slow. Things get better from Book 10 though, or was it Book 11?

[โ€“] [email protected] 2 points 1 week ago

What If is on my wishlist, but haven't gotten around to getting it yet. Never heard of The Planiverse before, but the concept sounds pretty interesting, will check it out.

Oooh, that's great!

Though, it did take him 15 years to write the sequel, so I am going to wait and see if the story is finished, if not, going to wait for it to finish before I jump back in.

The title seems familiar, but I don't recall hearing about it. Going to check it out.

 

A day late, but better late than never!

Finished Proven Guilty by Jim Butcher. Book 8 of Dresden Files. Loving how the series is progressing. How the characters are growing, and how the stakes keep getting higher and higher.

Currently Reading Cytonic by Brandon Sanderson. Book 3 of Cytoverse / Skyward series. It continues from after Book 2, and we haven't come across the events of the novellas yet. I am interested to see how they will cover those.

What about all of you? What have you been reading or listening lately?

lol. Well, if you like something, there is no need for any rationalization, just enjoy it.

[โ€“] [email protected] 2 points 2 weeks ago (1 children)

Just looked it up, apparently it's not a cook book...

How are you liking it so far?

[โ€“] [email protected] 2 points 2 weeks ago (2 children)

I started it a loooong time ago, soon afte LotR, and gave up after 50 pages or so, and never visited it again. I have heard it becomes it own things in later novels.

I like Terry Brooks' other work, so glad that you are enjoying it!

[โ€“] [email protected] 3 points 2 weeks ago (1 children)

Yeah, so many books, so little time. I have books in my wishlist for more than a decade, and even some in backlog for a very long time.

[โ€“] [email protected] 2 points 2 weeks ago

Sounds interesting, will check it out.

 

Finished Sunreach by Brandon Sanderson and Janci Patterson. It's first of three novellas written between book 2 and 3 of Cytoverse series.

Finished ReDawn, the next novella after Sunreach, by same authors.

Before reading these novellas, I considered them side stories, which may help expand the universe and give background info about other characters, but nothing big in main scheme of things, but the way story has progressed in these, anyone who miss these will missing out on a lot.

Of course, I have yet to read the next novel, so maybe it will cover some of the important bits, let's see.

After the novellas, I have started Proven Guilty by Jim Butcher, book 8 of Dresden Files. These novels keep getting longer, if I recall correctly, the first few were around 300 or so pages, this one is over 550 pages. Not that I am complaining, they are a fun read, but just an observation.

What about all of you? What have you been reading or listening to lately?

Finished Three Days to Never by Tim Powers. First half was pretty dense and slow, but second half, when things were getting obvious, and plans finally getting into motion, were very interesting, and was able to read them in just a few days.

It meets criteria for at least 3 different Bingo boxes, not sure where to place it. Would decide it later. ( @[email protected] We can do that right? Move them around different boxes after reading more books?)

Now I have just started Sunreach by Brandon Sanderson and Janci Patterson. It's first of three novellas, which are between book 2 and 3. (Well, third novella is generally recommended to be read after book 3, but that's a separate topic). It's a small book, so hopefully will be able to finish it soon.

We will be unfeaturing those posts now, so they won't be sticky on the top anymore. They will be mentioned in each weekly thread though, and you can also check them in community sidebar.

 

Continuing Three Days to Never by Tim Powers, I was around first quarter mark before, but have crossed the half mark now. The books has gotten really interesting, will probably finish this week, if nothing comes up.

Bought couple of books for my young one, and just read through them.

  • Read Race to the Rescue By Zanib Mian, book 2 of her "Meet the Maliks - Twin Detective". It's kinda like The Wimpy Kid, but about twin Muslim kids and their family.
  • Read The Stonekeeper by Kazu Kibuishi. Book 1 of Amulet series. A 9 book series of graphic novels for kids.

What about all of you? What have you been reading or listening lately?

And how many of you are taking part in our Books Bingo? Any progress yet?

 

Just saw this community on lemm.ee, and since it has no posts and mods, thought I should promote the existing bullet journal community [email protected]

It has a bit more people than here, but they are lurker like us, so there isn't much content, but if enough of us are in one place, maybe one day some of us will start posting. ๐Ÿ˜€

Reading Three Days to Never by Tim Powers. The premise is pretty interesting, can't wait to see where he takes it.
