July Currently Reading! ’20

Currently Reading

Happy July! This is what I’m currently reading!

Catching Fire (The Hunger Games, #2)

Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins – Picked this up in prep for reading the prequel that came out. As of writing this, I’m three chapters in. I’m rather liking it. Everyone and their mom has read this book so, no synopsis from me!

Shaman's Crossing (Soldier Son, #1)

Shaman’s Crossing by Robin Hobb – This is the first book in the Solder Son trilogy, the last remaining series written by Robin Hobb that I haven’t read yet. It’s also the only trilogy written under this name that’s not part of the Realm of the Elderlings world. I’m buddy reading this with Zezee @Zezeewithbooks and we’re both rather enjoying it so far. It follows the second son of a second son, destined to be a soldier in a world set on the frontier. The main character Navare lives on the edge of the kingdom, where the Plainspeople of the unclaimed lands can be interacted with. The magic in this is really neat – shamans and spirit realms and all sorts of things. I dig it. As of writing this, I’m just over the half way point, so I’m expecting this to be complete by the end of the month.

Reamde

Reamde by Neal Stephenson – This is my current audio book! This one’s a chunker. The book comes in at over 1000 pages, and the audio book is over 38 hours. I listen at 1.5 speed though, so I should have it done in about 29 or 30. This book follows a guy who creates a virtual video game world, and goes into economics of gold farming and yada yada. So far, the plot so far is really neat. The main character though is grating on my nerves. I’m hoping the audiobook will keep me interested – so far it’s the saving grace, hah.

And that’s it! Happy reading!
