Let’s start this post by showing you what I was up to at work this week
Okay, I didn’t make the Chocolate Soufflé! That was the chef! But it was so pretty, I had to take a picture! I did make the Iced Coffee & Chocolate though. Our cafe at this village is only a couple of months old and I am still experimenting with our products! It’s a nice change to my other job at a much busier franchise cafe.
Now back to reading 🙂
Do you know this feeling, when you just can’t concentrate on one single book for a longer period of time? Even though it’s a good one? Well, I definitely have it this week. After I stuck with Harry Potter the week before, I feel like reading everything else at once this week!
I even picked up Rogues again! Unfortunately the short story was a real bore and I couldn’t bring myself to finish it. It’s called Provenance by David W. Ball and tells the story of a precious painting making its way to the owner of an art gallery who is about to sell it on to a rich dude. I couldn’t imagine anything worse than reading about how this painting went from one Nazi to the other before, during & after the Second World War. I gave up halfway through.
Swan Song is getting more interesting, now that the main characters are on the move. We are dealing with 3 different groups at the moment – one is a group of survivors making their way out of New York, another consisting of an old army general, a nerdy kid and another soldier who’s slowly going insane. They are stuck in a safe house that wasn’t so safe after all, as it collapsed and killed almost everyone it it. Now they are trying to find some supplies and get out of there. The girl Swan is still hanging out in the cellar of a collapsed house, together with the wrestler. I hope this is moving on soon, there’s not so much happening here at the moment, apart from Swan’s mom dying
I also read more of Desperation. WTF, this cop is freaking me out so badly! And it’s King being King again! You never know which characters are gonna make it or just get killed after they are elaborately introduced some pages earlier! I want to know what’s going on with this creepy town and this creepy cop abducting and/or killing random people!
And because ‘why not?’ I felt like starting Black Sun Rising as well. I read a sample a while ago and then decided to purchase the book. It’s such a cool setting! It’s a SciFi/Fantasy, that takes place on a planet called Erna, where humans went from Earth. I don’t know whether they just went there because they could or if something bad happened, but the fact that they are still trying to figure out human technology, suggests the latter. There’s fae on this planet and people can work magic through them. There’s also ‘unhorses’ and ‘uncats’ 😀 I like it! It’s also pretty dark so far.
