    What are you reading in 2022?

    Just finished The Complete Witcher - an anthology of all the books. While entertaining, it was also a bit of a slog to get through. I probably should just have made do with the Netflix series, and not bothered reading the books…

    Vader vs Soth: Fight! Who wins?

    Soth. Power word kill.

    So, Wandavision?

    That certainly answered some questions! And highlighted a few new ones..

    Star Wars The mandalorian [Spoilers]

    Wow! I do wonder where it’s going to go next... And that was an intriguing post credit scene.

    What are you reading this year 2020?

    I read that story in school (many many moons ago) and really enjoyed it - I’d been trying to remember the title/author for ages, so thank you 😊

    What are you reading this year 2020?

    Finished The Wounded Kingdom trilogy by RJ Barker. It was ok, but don't think I'll read any more if the author decides to continue the story. I then read Ink and Sigil by Kevin Hearne. It's an Iron Druid series off-shoot. It's not as good or as interesting unfortunately, but I'll probably read...

    What are you reading this year 2020?

    Recently finished the latest Ben Aaronovitch: Tales from the Folly. It was good, but it's just a few short stories. Looking forward to the next "proper" story. I'm gradually working my way through The Wounded Kingdom trilogy by RJ Baker. Its got a nice premise (most of the gods are dead, and...

    Lovecraft Country (Spoilers for Episode 1)

    Oops - yes. My American geography is apparently pretty poor then!

    Lovecraft Country (Spoilers for Episode 1)

    Yeah - that was a really interesting show. It certainly felt authentic - I must admit I hadn't appreciated the levels of racism prevalent in the Southern States, so that was definitely an eye opener. I agree - the monsters were fantastic - you could feel the sanity checks failing :devilish: I...

    Me too :) It was nice to get a Dresden fix. I'm glad its not too a long wait for the next one though.

    What are you reading this year 2020?

    You are almost there... bear with it... The last chapter has something interesting happen. The next book is better and the final three books are a lot better!

    What are you reading this year 2020?

    Apparently 10... Sanderson has said 2 sets of a 5-book story arc. He does seem to have slowed down in his writing, so that may be a while.

    What are you reading this year 2020?

    Finally finished A Blight of Blackwings (Seven Kennings) - it was alright. I guess. I'm not sure if I'll be bothered to read any more if/when they come out. Moved on to the Art of the Adept series by Michael G Manning. That was much much more enjoyable to read. It was complete fantasy cheese...

    Walk through Avebury

    Nice! I love that place. It's more impressive 'in the flesh' but since thats not possible at the moment, this is a great alternative :)

    What are you reading this year 2020?

    To be honest, not really... The first few books were definitely the best. The writing was good enough for me to want to keep reading 5-8, but the quality of the plot distinctly starts to wane (I want to read book 9 - but mostly from a completionist pov!).

    What are you reading this year 2020?

    I really enjoyed that series. The magic system is definitely quite nifty. Its a shame book 9 (the conclusion) has been so delayed. David Farland is apparently still working on it, but his first draft has been sat at 50% for a long time. Still reading A Blight of Blackwings (Seven Kennings) -...

    What are you reading this year 2020?

    I'm in the middle of A Blight of Blackwings (Seven Kennings). It's book 2 in the series and its not really holding my interest at the moment. (I suspect I might have to re-read book 1 because its been a while). As I recall the first book took a while to get going as well, so will stick at it.

    What are you reading this year 2020?

    Yeah... That one is the worst in the series... You could almost skip it entirely because it felt like nothing of consequence happens until the last chapter. It does at least get a lot better with the next book.

    What are you reading this year 2020?

    Just finished The True Bastards: Book 2 of the Lot Lands by Jonathan French. It's a mixed bag. It took ages for something interesting to happen, and then just went a bit nuts! I struggled to get through the first half, but it picked up enough that I'll get the next one if/when it comes out. Now...

    What are you reading this year 2020?

    I've really enjoyed this series - its a slightly different take on the urban fantasy novel, but am defintely looking forward to the next book due out later this month.
