Slaughterhouse-Five | Kurt Vonnegut

Sometimes you have to make the best of a rainy work related drive. Alternating between James Franco reading chapters of Slaughterhouse-Five, and listening to my favorite Frank Turner album, this rainy morning isn't so bad after all. I was also happy to see some soggy bison out today.

#Two4Tuesday @TheSpineView

1. I always liked Hades in traditional mythology. He usually gets a bad rap. (In the Marvel universe I'm an Ares fan.)
2. Skin Game by Jim Butcher. A wizard, a knight, a couple sorcerers, a sasquatch, and a fallen angel team up to rob one of Hades' vaults in the underworld. Hijinks ensue.

LazyOwl I'm slowly making my way through the Dresden Files, but I haven't got to that one yet. It sounds good. 7mo
TheSpineView I too am reading the Dresden Files. Just finished book 2 so a ways to go. Thanks for playing 7mo
TK421 @LazyOwl @TheSpineView I've made my way through all the books so far. There was only 1 that I really didn't care for, and I'm not sure if it was the story or the fact that it's the only book James Marster didn't narrate. 7mo

King of Scars | Leigh Bardugo
post image
Pickpick

I've really enjoyed each book set in Leigh Bardugo's Grishaverse. Six of Crows is still my favorite, but King of Scars was really good. They really flesh out some of the characters that were introduced in the previous novels. Nikolai is always a fun point of view character, but I admit I was surprised at how much I loved having Zoya as a main character. She is great in this book! You get her backstory, and a ton of great quotes. 4 out of 5 stars.

Here are my top 10ish sci-fi fantasy picks. I had so many others that I wanted to list! These are some of the books that left me with an undying love for the genre. If you like high fantasy, please check out Stephen Zimmer. He has created an insanely detailed world. David Brin's Uplift War series is really good as well. I think I need to jump back into some good sci-fi again.

Good list idea @Chrissyreadit

1. It's The End Of The World As We Know It by REM. The laid back panic of Harry Dresden trying to stop yet another catastrophe makes me think of this song.

2. Mugs and bookmarks. You can't have too many mugs or bookmarks.

3. I've never really given this a lot of thought. I guess when I was younger I liked characters that were closer to my age. They were easier to relate to. Now, I don't make a lot of book choices based on main character age.

#5⭐reads2020

Thanks for the tag @Chrissyreadit ! This has been a terrible reading year for me, but I've managed to listen to a bunch of audiobooks and get through several graphic novels. These are my 5 star reads from this year. The full cast Sandman and Northanger Abbey were fantastic, Amanda Palmer is amazing, and I learned that the best way to fight evil necromancers and a zombie horde is with an undead T-rex.

Chrissyreadit Ahhhhh! I must get The Sandman and Northanger Abbey on audio that sounds more than amazing!!! 12mo
erzascarletbookgasm I‘ve just heard there is an Icelandic version of Stoker‘s original text, serialised in newspapers in 1900-1901, and endorsed by Stoker himself. It‘s described as surpassing the original, which tends towards the ponderous and reflective. Check it out if interested. 12mo

East of West Volume 10 | Jonathan Hickman

I finally made myself read the last volume of East of West. I truly hated to see this series come to and end. Volume 10 did not disappoint. Epic battles, the fate of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, and that of the leaders of the free world, all things were wrapped up quite nicely. This has been my favorite series in the last few years, and I was actually satisfied with how it ended!

VinceReads I‘ve only read the first three and it‘s been a while but this makes me want to go pick up the rest and finish the series 12mo

Wow...this is possibly the best audiobook that I have ever heard. The cast is absolutely fantastic. I've been a Sandman fan for a long time, and they have truly brought this to life. I couldn't dream of a better version. (Sorry, I couldn't help myself there.) It was really enjoyable to read along in the graphic novels while listening. I hope that this trend continues. I have several favorite comics that would be incredible as audiobooks.

I have been in a terrible reading slump over the last few months. Audiobooks have been of great help in trying to get through this slump. The Art of Asking is absolutely wonderful. This will seriously change they way you view certain aspects of your life. Amanda does her own reading, which is quite enjoyable (I find her Neil Gaiman impersonation delightful), and there are a few songs thrown in. I really can't recommend this enough.

I had to do a bunch of driving for work early this morning. I started listening to the Audible production of Northanger Abbey. It is fantastic! I needed some tunes to help keep me awake while driving, so I would listen to a 30 Seconds to Mars song very loud between each chapter of Northanger Abbey. Jane Austen and Jared Leto really seem to go well together. 😀

I also saw a bison farm while I was out. Not a bad morning for having to go in early.

Happy #TolkienReadingDay !

The Hobbit was my introduction to fantasy as a child. I've loved dragons ever since. The conversation between Bilbo and Smaug has always been a favorite passage. I love how Tolkien wrote dragons in to his stories. Glaurung had some great dialog in The Silmarillion as well.

BookwormAHN That's also my favorite part of The Hobbit 💚 2y
JazzFeathers Tolkien's dragons are simply marvellous. It may seem they are the classic evil dragons, but they are much more. They are clever creatures, with complex personalities. Glaurung is my favourite. 2y
TK421 @JazzFeathers I always like looking at the Tolkien dragons size chart after reading The Silmarillion. Smaug was just a little guy compared to the old dragons. 2y

Junkyard Cats | Faith Hunter

I haven't read any of Faith Hunter's books before this. I have to say that this was really fun on audio. Space ships, bikers, sentient cats, nano-tech, sassy southern belle A.I. This book had so many enjoyable elements. The main character was very likable, there was a decent amount of back story and world building, the tech was believable, and the cats were pretty great. I hope there is a sequel in the works.

Texreader Excellent review. Not my normal kind of book but I may have to get the audiobook 1y

1. I've always turned to comics or Fantasy as an escape. Classic cosmic Marvel and X-Men, Sandman, any book by Tolkien, Gaiman, or the Gears.
2. Any comedy with Peter Sellers. A Shot In The Dark was my favorite. The original Star Wars trilogy has always been a great escape for me as well.
3. IT Crowd, How I Met Your Mother, 30 Rock, The Office
4. Nature photography, hiking, fishing, I need to draw more often

I loved this. Jeff Lemire's run on Moon Knight was fantastic. I've always been a Moon Knight fan. Lemire takes pieces of Marc Spector's back story, his multiple personalities, the power of Khonshu, and puts them all together in a padded room. You really feel like you are going insane when you read this. Another Lemire masterpiece!

Sweettartlaura He‘s my favorite ♥️ 2y
SCBird I feel like I end up reading this run whenever I fall out with comics for a while and want back in. 💛 Favorite! 2y

1. Nothing drastic yet, although we did cancel some travel plans. My family is spending most of our time at home together, so that is one positive thing about this.
2. Yes. Yes I do.
3. Nope. One of these years I'll have Scotch eggs and Guinness for breakfast though.
4. Fatal Cajun Festival, Star Path, and I might start back into The Stand.
5. My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising. It was awesome!

This was a good conclusion to the trilogy. I was happy with most of the character wrap ups. My favorite side characters actually lived for a change! This leads nicely towards King of Scars. I'll be starting that soon. After seeing some of the casting for the TV series, I can easily see Ben Barnes as The Darkling.

While waiting at the library for my kids book club to let out, this Cajun cozy mystery jumped out at me.(quite literally) Ok, maybe I accidentally knocked it off the shelf, but it still wants to be read. Plus there is a great sounding etouffee recipe in it.

Tamra Love the cover! 2y
Erofan Yes, beautiful cover! 😍 2y

I really enjoyed this book. @JenlovesJT47 you made a good choice. It was a really interesting journey from Scotland to the Canadian wilderness. Murder, secrets, revenge, romance, and trout fishing. This book has it all. 😀

Cortg Awesome! I got a cup of coffee and 30 min. reading time before I start getting ready for work. I love starting the mornings out like this! Have a great day! (edited) 2y
SauerPatch So jealous! (Not that I have any right to be, I‘d have more reading/other hobby time if I managed my time differently, lol.) Also, that CAT mug.😄 2y
