  1. I am reading my first western novel right now. I am about half way through Lonesome Dove and it is awesome.
  2. I haven't posted in a very long time. I am currently reading my first western genre book, Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry. I love it so far!
  3. Being busy at work, planning a wedding, getting married and going on a honeymoon really cramped my postings, but not my reading thankfully! I have read 50 books to date according to my Goodreads account.

  4. I haven't posted in a while. Currently I have been reading Sebastien de Castell's The Greatcoats series. Right now I just started the last book in the series, Tyrant's Throne. Really enjoying it. I would recommend this series to others.
  5. The Book of Deacon by Joseph Lallo was boring. Way to much telling vs showing and the main character was too much of a prodigy and Mary Sue for my likings. Loving both Time of Grief, by Adrian Tchaikovsky and Legacy by Lois McMaster Bujold.
  6. I found My Name is Red by Orhan Pamuk a real slog to read. I didn't care for the prose or themes at all. I only finished to find out who the murderer was. Now reading a free indie fantasy book, The Book of Deacon by Joseph Lallo. It is OK, Way too much telling rather than showing.
  7. I loved Beguilement by Lois McMaster Bujold. While I am waiting for the next library ebook in the The Sharing Knife series, I have started reading My Name is Red by Orhan Pamuk. I admit the odd POVs (ie a tree!) and non-linear structure took me a while getting used to.
  8. I found Gods of Risk novella in the Expanse world just ok. I didn't care about Bobbie Draper's nephew getting into trouble. Eruption: The Untold Story of Mount St. Helens by Steve Olsen was great. This was the human side of the story I didn't know much about and I am glad I filled in my gap of knowledge. Now enjoying the heck out of the first novel of Lois McMaster Bujold's The Sharing Knife series, Beguilement.
  9. I found Calamity by Brandon Sanderson alright. The ending bothered me in some Way. Now reading an Expanse novella, Gods of Risk.
  10. Written in My Own Heart's Blood by Diana Gabaldon was better than the previous few. The plot actually moved more in this one than the previous 2 books. I then tore through a romance, Fantasy, and Indiana jones mashup that was actually pretty good. The series is called The Blades of the Rose, Zoe Archer is the author, and the first book was called Warrior. I am now reading the second book in the series, Scoundrel.
  11. I am loving Mother Tongue: How English Got That Way by Bill Bryson. I love Bryson and the topic of linguistics. Next will be a behemoth of a book, Written in My Own Heart's Blood by Diana Gabaldon. The last few Outlander books have disappointed me.
  12. I finished the last 2 books of The Highroad Trilogy, Revolution's Shore and The Price of Ransom by Kate Elliott. It was OK. I liked her Crown of Stars and Jaran series better. Besides, all my space opera has to compete with the Vorkosigan series which sets my bar pretty high. Now reading a non-fiction book by Bill Bryson, Mother Tongue: English and How it Got That Way.
  13. I thought Firefight by Brandon Sanderson was a better book than Steelheart. Loved it. Now reading Revolution's Shore by Kate Elliott. The first book wasn't very good. This one is an improvement already so far.
  14. I finished Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson. I thought it was pretty average, but those twists in the end made it very interesting. Also finished Mitosis, a Reckoners novella by Brandon Sanderson. Now reading the second novel in the trilogy, Firefight.
  15. The Barbary Pirates was just pure fun. Having William Smith (father of geology), Georges Cuvier, and Robert Fulton all together and getting into one escapade after another with the hero, Ethan Gage, made this pure entertainment. Now starting Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson.
