Due to the wedding anniversary, I am a bit behind on everything (we are not going to talk about NaNoWriMo right now). Comments to your blogs and replies to comments on my blog will be coming soon!
Weekly Book Haul
On Wednesday, I had a very special Wednesday Update to discuss some of the awesome books I had received. Please check out the post, because, it will Blow Your Mind! :) I also received A Touch of Temptation by Tara Pammi and A Kick-Ass Fairy by Linda Zercoe from GoodReads Giveaways. In regards to galleys, I got The X-Files: Season 10 #1 by Joe Harris and Jim Butcher's Dresden Files: Ghoul Goblin by Jim Butcher and others. Finally, I got Curtsies & Conspiracies by Gail Carriger from the library!
Ancillary Justice by Ann Leckie: This book is a lot tougher to read than I thought it would be. The protagonist is an AI that used to be a spaceship carrier. Now, the AI is in a humanoid body. Also, the AI's native tongue doesn't use genders, so the AI uses "she" for everyone, unless the AI is forced to speak in a different language then some characters become "he's." The story is interesting, but I am finding myself zoning out more than I usually do. Because this is both a galley and a book for my book club, I want to finish it.
A Feast for Crows by GRR Martin: I decided to start up this audio book, because the library wait list had finally cooled down. I am enjoying it so far. I am excited to discover that it is shorter than A Storm of Swords! I only need to listen to it for about 1.5 hrs per day to finish it within three weeks!
