Well...damn.... I feel a little called out right now. I wonder how often people think I smell of cheese and weariness.

So I slammed through the last half of this book in a single day. Whoops. Book four is on the way and book three is ready to go. Anyway, this one was also rad and I love this story. But man, I was embarrassingly far into this book before I realized the word was darkfriends and not darkfiends. #BuddyReadWOT

1) Garbage pop punk bands from the 00‘s. They‘re awful and I don‘t care.
2) Fall. I hate being both too hot or too cold and Spring is too flakey for my liking.
3) The giant umbrella genre of speculative fiction. I‘m weird about genre definition. I tend to go on rants about it if I‘m left to my own devices.
4) Probably a TV dinner. I spent too much on my Tennessee trip so no eating out for me for awhile.
@howjessreads #FriyayIntro

LauraJ I'd love to hear one of your genre rants. Seriously! 4d
Geeklet @LauraJ lol, well the short version is that I think genre definitions are damaging. I bought four sci-fi books earlier this week, all very well written. Two were in the sci-fi section and two were in regular fiction. There was nothing really about the books that would make this distinction but someone somewhere decided that some writers just won‘t go into a genre section and that others can‘t get out of it. It‘s a silly division. 4d
Geeklet This silly division has consequences when authors are fearful of getting stuck with the genre label. Authors don‘t really get to feel and write as freely as they‘d like. And I miss out on good stories that never happen. 😕 4d
vivastory I love your rant about genre & I completely agree. One would think that after acknowledged masters such as Atwood, Mitchell, Chabon, Whitehead etc have incorporated so-called genre elements into their writing we'd be past such arbitrary & meaningless divisions. 1d
Geeklet @vivastory Thanks! It bugs me so much. I think I just have a chip on my shoulder as a 35 year old who is far too tired of getting shit about their reading tastes. 1d

Okay, last #bookhaul for awhile, I swear. My order from Thriftbooks arrived while I was gone. I‘m pretty picky about damage on used books. I only ordered things with good and above quality assigned to them. The Terror has some electrical tape on it and The Forever War has an obnoxious sticker I couldn‘t easily remove. Overall though, I‘m fairly happy and will probably use them again.

Lady_Tigana_20 I‘m pretty happy with them. Usually I just want a reading copy (if library doesn‘t have it). I did once receive a children‘s anthology missing first couple of pages. They let me keep it and credited back my money since there was no replacement copy available. One time, they sent me a book in better condition (perfect condition hardcover) because my other books were coming from that warehouse and it was cheaper for them to ship it. 6d
RamsFan1963 Ohhhh both Lord of Light and The Forever War, two solid sci-fi classics. Nice haul!! 6d
Geeklet @RamsFan1963 Thanks! I already had The Forever War but I really like these SF Masterworks covers. It‘s a shame that‘s one of the books with an ugly sticker on it. A hair dryer should help me remove it but it sucks. 5d

Excellent deal today on The Poppy War for Kindle readers. The book is about a young peasant girl who gets into a elite magic warrior school. The premise sounds lamer than it really is. I guess you‘d consider it a YA book but I really enjoyed it and I‘m not much of a YA fan. The sequel The Dragon Republic comes out in August. #ebookdeal #kindle #fantasy

150ish pages down, like 10,900 more to go! So far, so good. It‘s turning out to be an easier read than I thought it would be.

I hope to get more done on it this week but I might get sucked in to The Hot Zone on Nat Geo for the next couple of nights. #BuddyReadWOT

I love this book so much. The author does an excellent job explaining the science in an accessible way. He uses DNA and fossil evidence to show how bodies have adapted and changed parts as life has grown from fish to amphibians, mammals, and eventually humans. He writes in an infectious style, much like Carl Sagan. This book is always a delight to read.
