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.

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.
