  • Well, Alex Verus has finished so there's that.

    I remember that The Way of Kings was a bit slow to start, but didn't realise it was this slow. I have been planning a re-read in anticipation of the 5th book, so nice to adjust my expectations.

  • I was reading Lightbringer series by Brent Weeks, but gave up at the start of book 3. Have you read it? If yes, how do you compare it with The Night Angel series?

  • The Witcher is an interesting world. Would be interesting to see how they expand the stories in next games.

    That premise about Tender is Flesh made me go from, 'interesting' to 'uhh...' pretty quickly. Do let us know if you do (or do not) finish the book, and how it goes.

  • I read Dune a loooong time ago, but while I remember the gist of story, don't remember the details, so staying away from the movies too. Going to do a re-read, and then watch the movies.

    Bought couple of books for my young one, and just read through them.

    • Read Race to the Rescue By Zanib Mian, book 2 of her "Meet the Maliks - Twin Detective". It's kinda like The Wimpy Kid, but about twin Muslim kids and their family.
    • Read The Stonekeeper by Kazu Kibuishi. Book 1 of Amulet series. A 9 book series of graphic novels for kids.

    What about all of you? What have you been reading or listening lately?

  • About 2E, if that 4,000 year old Prince of the Shokan lost an arm, but got tele-kinetic power, which may or may not be the reason or linked to losing his arm, would that count? It's a disability, but he got powers that makes it less of a disability.

  • I am still reading Three Days to Never by Tim Powers.

    Have been pretty busy with real life, so haven't gotten around to doing much reading these past couple of weeks. Have a long list of books lined up after it, so hopefully will get some time over the coming the weekend.

    Edit: Can't wait for the Bingo post!

  • Ah, just replied to your other post.

    The idea is generally to share what you are reading since the last time you posted in one of these thread (which are posted weekly), or just what you are reading lately.

    Also, 69 books and it's just April, that's really cool. With this speed, you can have around 200 books by the year end. Would love to see how your journey progresses.

  • Wow, that's a lot of books. How long did it take to read all these?

    I have A, B, F and L. Thinking about starting reading A is for Alibi soon, and if I like it, start collecting the rest of the series.

    Finished Starsight by Brandon Sanderson. Second book in Cytoverse series. Loved the way the series progressed, though didn't liked the post-ending much. Going to start the novella soon.

    Started Three Days to Never by Tim Powers. It's a standalone sci-fi. Don't remember who recommended Tim Powers or when, but he was mentioned in my list, so got couple of his books. I have just started the book, something is happening, but I am not sure what, so no idea what to think about it yet. Let's see how it turns out.
