October Currently Reading

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

The Broken Eye (Lightbringer, #3)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

EmbassytownThis 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.

Guess why.

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

Fool's Errand (Tawny Man, #1)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

The Wise Man's Fear (The Kingkiller Chronicle, #2)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!

  1. Yea, it was like coming home when we hopped back to Fitz. 😀
    And I can’t believe the audiobook for Embassytown was missing the prologue. That’s weird.

    1. I know, and chapter 1 was written in a way that I didn’t realize there was material missing ’til I went back and picked up the physical book. It was really weird.

      1. Aw you two! You are my favourite buddy-read- team 😀

        I hear this a lot, that audio books are actually shorter versions of the book. Wtf, I don’t want to get just half a book?! I started listening to one recently (6th Harry Dresden by Jim Butcher) and like it because the narrator is Spike from Buffy 😀 But normally I am not a fan. I hope they don’t leave out anything^^

      2. Yeah it really weirded me out – I’ve never come across an audiobook like that so I didn’t even know it could happen, haha.

        I hope yours is okay! 😀

  2. I loved Embassytown, I should really give it a reread. How does the audio version handle the dual names?

    Wise Man’s Fear is another one I should reread, and start with The Name of the Wind. Yes, WMF was so polarizing when it came out! the reviews were very, um, attention getting? WMF was probably 300 pages longer than it needed to be, and as it mysteriously sets things up for some kind of finale, fans were doubly annoyed that the third book is still nowhere in sight.

    1. That was the one really cool thing about the audiobook. They handled the double-voice really well. Language was spoken with the narrator’s voice doubled up, pronouncing both parts of the word at the same time. It was neat!

      I have about 200 pages or so left at this point. I’m liking the plot pretty well but can definitely see why it could have been shorter, haha.
