    June '18 Reading - Something something witty.

    Read the first Dresden book, was underwhelmed, will read the next two to see if there is improvement.

    March 2018 reads: share your latest books read

    You might be forced to go the ebook route if physical copies are unavailable, small price to pay for not being spoilt.. These books will reward you for any investment of time you make..

    The Realm of the Elderlings by Robin Hobb

    This thing of sacrifice is a idea that resonates with me, i love the idea, and its one of the reasons why i thought Assassins Quest had the perfect ending, Fitz doing all he did and to be not acknowledge, just fading away, it was excellent.

    The Realm of the Elderlings by Robin Hobb

    Loved it, i was ambivalent about the series when it was first announced, i though tawny man had left Fitz in a good place, but Hobbs went an did it again. i am on record as saying the first fitz trilogy had the perfect ending, so i doubted tawny man, same thing again. she nailed it.

    The Realm of the Elderlings by Robin Hobb

    I quit the Rain Wilds half way through book 2, its then only thing Hobbs have written that i have not devoured, i am minded to revisit since finishing Fitz and the Fool

    Reading in 2018: January Reads

    Finished Artemis by Andy Weir, enjoyed it despite the lead character not being very sympathetic, Persepolis Rising was as expected excellent, i have not read anything by Daniel Abraham that is not of a very high standard, i also think that the 30 year gap was not handled as well as could be, but the story arc is developing nicely and i cant wait to see where it ends. started Orphan X on a recommendation by a board member and is enjoying it so far, kind of a generic tale of young boy trained to be govt assassin, but still interesting.
