Hello! From yesterday’s post if you read it, you’ll know I didn’t finish any books this month. Well, I’m reading quite a few, all of them really effin big. So there’s that.
The Broken Eye by Brent Weeks
I haven’t actually picked this one up, recently. It’s fallen on the backburner, which is unfortunate since both of the previous books in the series were five star reads for me. Will I read this eventually? Yes. Soon? ….Maybe.
Embassytown by China Mieville
This one last month I switched over to a physical copy to read because I really wasn’t digging the audiobook. Well guess what. I discovered why I didn’t like the audiobook.
THE AUDIOBOOK IS MISSING THE TEN PAGE PROLOGUE. I WAS MISSING SO MUCH CONTEXT. NO WONDER I WAS TOTALLY OUT OF JIVE WITH THAT DAMN THING.
Am liking the physical book much better.
Fool’s Errand by Robin Hobb
I’ve started a new buddy read!! 😀 I’m reading this book with Zezee, who has been slowly going through Hobb’s collected works with me! This is our I think fifth or sixth buddy read together. She’s a good buddier. She’s a good reader. She’s a good buddy-reader.
The book is pretty wonderful so far, too. Apparently I love Hobb’s books to the point that I actually got nostalgia when I read from Fitz’ POV again. It was like coming home. 🙂
Also, I make a point to get the corniest Hobb covers I can find. I think they’re swell!
The Wise Man’s Fear by Patrick Rothfuss
So, funny thing with this book. I heard going into it that it was polarizing among fans, that you’d either like it or you wouldn’t.
Well, lemme tell ya. I’m seeing it, dude. I’m seeing it.
This book. This book. I’m about 600-something pages into it (audiobook so not certain) and it is completely ridiculous. It will be getting a full-length spoilery blabber that will be written likely while I’m drunk off my ass. I’m so looking forward to it. I need to finish it at this point. I have to. I wanna tear it a new butt.
And that’s it! 😀 Happy reading!
