And another month is over – I can’t believe it’s almost 2018!
It wasn’t a good month for me when it comes to reading. I finished 2 books, dnf a couple more and had a slight reading slump.
Now it’s all good again. I am re-reading the awesome Stormlight Archive series by Brandon Sanderson and am enjoying myself!
Here’s what I read
Black Sun Rising / C. S. Friedman –> finished! 2/5 Stars. My review is here. Promising setting and magic system, disappointing storyline, that was a bit all over the place and featured characters I couldn’t root for. I expected more. Will not continue, but might check out another of the author’s series at some point. Just not this one.
The Bazaar of Bad Dreams / Stephen King –> finished! 4/5 Stars. Review is coming. Much, much better than I thought. Good variety, only a couple stories I didn’t like. It helped that the stories were really short sometimes, as I was just getting out of my reading slump. I was able to put it down often and not lose the plot. Ended up reading it much quicker than expected though.
The Way of Kings Part 1/ Brandon Sanderson –> Reread. 327/592. Yup, I own the two part version if this book. I will still count it as one though. More than halfway done with this first part and I love it so much. Even more than the first time reading it, if that’s even possible 😀
What I want to read in December
Words of Radiance & Oathbringer / Brandon Sanderson –> Yes, I am glad I started from the beginning again. Makes me even more excited to finally pick up Oathbringer!
What I am watching
Shannara still. We are waiting for the last episodes on the Syfy channel. It’s been good for the most part, but some episodes have felt like fillers. I am tired of Will moping and whining all the time and CAN THEY PLEASE STOP MAKING ALLANON LOOK LIKE A PUSSY ALL THE TIME?! He’s a mighty druid, he shouldn’t be captured & get beaten up all the time 😀
Apart from that we are looking forward to starting American Gods soon. I just bought the DVD, yay!
We watched one episode of The Walking Dead and left it at that 😀 No wish to continue, it’s all the same anyways. This series is not developing, it’s stuck.
Also…. It’s Cricket Season now, and the Aussies love it to death. They enjoy watching a day-long game in which almost NOTHING happens…. I get the Big Bash league, that’s more interesting. But those day games.. Nah
(I hope Mr DZ does not see that…^^)
