The last book I read was The Chronicles Of Narnia by C.S.Lewis, I stopped at Prince Caspian. I intend to read Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini and 1984 By George Orwell. About the comics, I'm reading the Mangas One Piece, Bakuman, and Eden: Its A Infinite World besides the Batman comics.
Not good. My sports are ones that don’t get widespread coverage, so I wouldn’t find that there. Just about the only things in it today are store openings, covid deaths, jabs at the dumb mayor, and Myanmar immigrants using the city as an outsource to rally for democracy.
The Kingdom of Copper, by S.A. Chakraborty. It's the second of a trilogy, the first being The City of Brass, about a young woman who's a thief and a healer in Cairo; she bites off more than she can chew and ends up thrown into the world of djinn.
‘The Rosie project’ ‘The City we became’ And I’m listening to ‘Miss Peregrines home for peculiar children’.
I’m doing a year-long reading challenge hence the somewhat bizarre selection. -A romantic contemporary that hasn’t been popular in several years. And something I wouldn’t otherwise pick up. -An Urban sci-fi with the main concept being young adults being avatars for New York. -A YA fantasy book that currently giving off Goosebumps vibes which according to some readers said vibes don’t last.
Xeelee: An Omnibus a series of four novels by Stephen Baxter in the Xeelee Sequence. They are Raft, Timelike Infinity, Flux and Ring. They're pretty out there in terms of setting. The novel I'm on, Flux, I feel is a little too abstract in location for my liking. Makes it hard to concentrate on when I'm struggling to really get to grips with the dynamics of where the characters are.
Just finished The Three Body Problem and The Luminous Dead. Just started Blood Standard by Laird Barron. I'm very curious to see what this book is like, since I've read tons of Laird Barron books and he has been appropriately described as writing Lovecraftian horror fiction. With Blood Standard, it seems like he's taken an entirely new style and it appears to be noir detective thriller. Looking forward to seeing what this is like.
