    The Realm of the Elderlings by Robin Hobb

    I don't think Rain Wilds are a chore at all, but the first two are a little slower than usual for Hobb. It's obvious from the structure that it started as a 1-book concept.

    Nothing against Karjakin, but I really hope it's not him again.

    He was nuts, yes. Unfortunately the film messed up the chess. :/

    Not the best result for the American trio.
  5. I've really liked this season so far, but the preview for the next episode made it look absolutely atrocious.

    Cycling 2019 - the British are coming.

    A big multi-mountain stage, and Dumoulin was the strongest of the lot. Impressive. Yates takes the white jersey, which is looking like the most interesting competition left, as he's a far weaker TTer than Jungels.

    Yeah he's still the clear favourite here. It was actually a bit of a disappointing stage in the end. I was expecting attacks earlier. And I've no idea what Landa was thinking leading out the sprint.

    Yep, today should be a lot of fun.

    I was annoyed that they scheduled the Mount Etna stage when I was at work - Guess I didn't miss much in the end. Pleased to see Yates, Thomas and Carthy all in the front group, even if it was a pretty big group!

    Fun end to the stage though with the sprinters failing. I'm looking forwards to Landa vs Thomas later on.

    I have it. It's all turquoise and gold and shiny. Also going to a Robin Hobb talk on the 5th.

    I picture a figurehead a bit like this http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-MthkAP3oK7o/U557L08S1MI/AAAAAAAAIsY/3YqlQ69WaUA/s1600/Kalamar_Nycel_bow_figurehead.jpg But much, much bigger and able to swivel 360 degrees to interact with people. And human instead of lion.
