TLDR: Peaky Blinders in an alternate world with a dash of fantasy elements. I liked the pacing of the story and character development; The ending was satisfying for the primary cast.[Goodread link]
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 […]
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]
Way better than the movie. The subsequent books don’t appeal to me though.
Overall a good read, like a crossover between The Martian and Artemis, though I’d rank this the least among the three.
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.
The Daevabad Trilogy by S.A. Chakraborty The protagonists were way too naive and idealistic until the end for my taste. But the lore and and plots points kept me reading until the end.
From Joe Rogan to me, then to you. Steven Pressfield – The War of Art
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. https://www.goodreads.com/series/147091-the-pillars-of-reality
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. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/46146065-all-gifts-bestowed
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. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/11706669-the-first-law-trilogy?from_search=true
A welcomed deviation from my usual Fantasy and Scifi fair. One of the very few romance books I actually enjoyed. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/11870085-the-fault-in-our-stars
Not stop action from book 1 to 14! One of the most epic and engaging zombie series I’ve read so far. https://www.goodreads.com/series/84669-arisen
A story within stories; a dialog/interview style driven narrative. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/25733990-sleeping-giants?from_search=true
Second time reading this, one of my favorite space opera’s from one of my favorite authors. https://www.goodreads.com/series/41099-vatta-s-war
https://www.goodreads.com/series/135626-the-legends-of-the-first-empire 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 […]
Satisfying conclusion to the trilogy even though there are still several books after the initial story. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/35480139-deliverance
A lull in the action from the first book, but sets up the story for the third book. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/31434700-ghosts
The conclusion of the book left me hanging a bit, otherwise it was a good read. Not as good as The Martian though. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/34928122-artemis
Preferred the first book. Hopefully the third one is better. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/279561.Broken_Angels?from_search=true
