Converting Audible AAX files to M4B/MP3

I like owning physical or actual copies of the things I buy, where I can enjoy them at any time, place, and mode of consumption I choose. With that in mind, I tried converting my Audible AAX files into M4B files so I can listen to them on any app or device I want. To […]

The Expanse by James SA Corey

Books 1-5 were great, then started to go downhill for me from there. I got a sense that the conclusion will leave me unsatisfied to say the least.. almost remorseful that I got invested in the story and characters passed book 5. [Goodreads link]

Chaos Walking by Patrick Ness

Chaos Walking Series by Patrick Ness The story could’ve been told in 1 book instead of 3 and felt dragging the longer I read the book. I personally didn’t like the pace of the story and how it ended but it wasn’t bad enough for me to stop reading.

Aluminum laptop stand

I saw this identical stand on one of Dave 2D’s videos which he got on Amazon. I found a similar one on Lazada for 16USD or 800PHP incluaive of tax and shipping, and it was Cash On Delivery as well. It’s adjustable on either side and can fit thick devices and the alen screws tighten […]

Pillars of Reality – Jack Campbell

Started interesting enough though got a bit dragged out past the 3rd book. A good read for those looking for a Young Adult light fantasy series. Hoping the series continues though.

All the Gifts Bestowed

One of a few single book Sci-Fi  books I’ve enjoyed in recent memory. It has an apt, eerie depiction of the current state of computing.

The First Law Trilogy

A great series but with a few plot holes here and there. One of my favorites books to date, but some of the protagonists could’ve concluded better.

The Fault in Our Stars

A welcomed deviation from my usual Fantasy and Scifi fair. One of the very few romance books I actually enjoyed.

Themis Files : Sleeping Giants

A story within stories; a dialog/interview style driven narrative.

Vatta’s War

Second time reading this, one of my favorite space opera’s from one of my favorite authors.

Legends of the First Empire 1-3 of 6 A prequel (of sorts) to one of my all time favorite series: The Riyria Revelations by Michael J Sullivan. There’s no direct relation to the former series, it gives more context and back story to the Riyria Revelations story. Still waiting for the 3 remaining, but the first 3 books has a satisfying conclusion […]

Hell Divers 3 : Deliverance

Satisfying conclusion to the trilogy even though there are still several books after the initial story.

Hell Divers 2 : Ghosts

A lull in the action from the first book, but sets up the story for the third book.


The conclusion of the book left me hanging a bit, otherwise it was a good read. Not as good as The Martian though.
