Like every year I will join Winterkatze’s ‘Herbstlesen’ or ‘Autumn Reading’. I will call it October reading though, as it is Spring for me 😉 Anyways – Every weekend this month I will try to read & relax and write one post in which I will tell you what I am up to.
Unfortunately, I am working in the afternoon today and in the morning tomorrow. so I won’t have a nice & free weekend. It doesn’t matter though as I will still find some time for it 🙂 I already read a little this morning. And surprisingly, it’s 2 Rereads 🙂
What I read so far
The Black Company. Chronicles of the Black Company 1 / Glen Cook –> 32 pages – currently on page 72. I read this book about 5-6 years ago and apart from a few characters, I didn’t remember anything! I finally found the first three novels in the Kindle Store and felt like starting all over again immediately. It’s grim & gritty High Fantasy about a sellsword company trying to get by. It’s told from the pov of Croaker, the company’s doctor & historian. He’s quite cynical but definitely an enjoyable pov character. The story is action-packed and character based. I like most of the soldiers, but my faves are probably Silent, a sneaky wizard who doesn’t talk and Raven, a mysterious new member. For some reason I enjoy the story more now. It really has some nice twists & turns and lots of exciting scenes!
Deadhouse Gates. The Malazan Book of the Fallen 2 / Steven Erikson –> 16 pages – currently on page 36. My favourite High Fantasy Series! Felt like continuing my Reread of this. I didn’t remember that the perspectives change so quickly, but I already read about 4 different storylines in just 16 pages! That’s not too bad though as everything is still set up. And one of my least favourite characters, Icarium and Mappo, were only dealt with shortly.
Total pages read so far: 48
I will probably stick with those 2 books this weekend as I really feel like something more serious and gory.
Off to work now.. I will give you a little information on what I am doing 😉
I managed to read 4 more pages of Deadhouse Gates 😀 Not much, but it marks the end of the first chapter and I am content to leave it like this for today. All neat and tidy so I can start off with the second chapter tomorrow. I also read 28 pages of The Black Company and am on page 100 there. What I really like about it is, that the mean guys seem super threatening. I am actually scared of the Lady and Soulcatcher and the Limper. Especially the Limper. The author likes to go into detail and describe how his skin is rotting away from his face. Ugh.
Total pages read so far: 80
I will watch some TV with my Boyfriend now and maybe read a little more later 🙂
Update #2 – Sunday
I just didn’t have time today. I worked for my Boyfriend’s business today and we only got out of there at 3pm.. After that we had dinner at his mum’s place which was very yummy, as always 🙂 Busy but nice day, unfortunately no time to read..But I’ll be back tomorrow – will definitely have more time then.
