Wednesday Update

I know, I know. This is crazy! Two updates in a week! I was thinking that maybe I should do two updates a week, especially since I am reading so many books at the same time now, and it is taking me forever to finish anything. Sadly, I cannot read two books at the exact same time, which is probably for the best. If Joffrey from A Song of Ice and Fire crossed with Sookie Stackhouse from Dead until Dark, we would have some problems. :)


A Good Birth - 17% completed - I just started this book tonight. It was a GoodReads First Reads giveaway book. The book is a discussion on what makes a birth good, and the thesis is based on about one hundred interviews with women who recently gave birth. Several of my friends recently had babies and I would like to have children one day, so the themes in this book are particularly interesting to me.

A Storm of Swords - 62% completed - I must admit that I have read a lot of what happens in this series on wikipedia. I have also been watching Game of Thrones on HBO. Nevertheless, the book has been riveting. It got a little slow for me yesterday; however, the Red Wedding is about to happen, so my interest has picked up again. I am listening to this book, and Roy Dotrice (as if you didn't know) is simply fantastic with the voices.

Storm Riders - 22% completed - This was another GoodReads First Reads giveaway books. I was so excited to get this book. It is by Margaret Weis (!) and Robert Krammes. I am enjoying the writing; however, I am a bit lost in the story. It is book two in the series, and I did not read the first book. I understand the basic premise of what is happening, but this is not a stand alone book. Hopefully, I can get more interested in it, because it is a fast read when I sit down and read it.

Ringworld - 34% completed - This was the Sword & Laser book pick for the month. I told my husband that Ringworld was the main pick and there was an official alternate pick of Redshirts. His first comment was "I think you picked the wrong book." I am starting to think the same thing. Larry Niven is very excited about explaining science. Unfortunately, this is sometimes at the expense of the characters. The book is less than 300 pages, so I WILL finish it by the end of the month, if I can muster up the effort.

Fun! Random! Excitement!

In other news, I have been chosen to read a few books that are going to be published soon including the new Temeraire book Blood of Tyrants and the new Locke Lamora book Republic of Thieves. I should be starting to read these books soon, so be on the look out for my reviews!
