Small update

Sunday, August 15, 2010

Here's where I stand right now in term of reading and review writing. I'm currently reading Farlander by Col Buchanan (I had great expectations from this one with the reviews I read so far) and I when I finish, I want to go through this list :

Shadow's Son by Jon Sprunk
The Black Prism by Brent Weeks
Tome of the Undergates by Sam Sykes
The Last Page by Anthony Huso
(and then all my "to read" pile....)

In term of audiobooks, I'm not that pleased with Imager by L.E. Modesitt Jr. but it's good enough to finish it. Not sure what I will pick up next, probably some Brent Weeks of Brandon Sanderson (I have not finished their series...).

I'm currently writing my review for The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson and I still have to write the one for The Other Lands by David Anthony Durham. Oh... and I will probably post my German covers exploration part 2 soon.

Then, some blogroll and map links updates. I added Bookworm Blues (nice new blog by Sarah) and Walker of Worlds (which you probably already know but that I discovered only lately) to the blogroll and I added the links for the maps of Brandon Sanderson's Warbreaker, David Eddings' The Belgariad and Paul Kearney's The Monarchies of God.

I have finished playing the single player campaign of Starcraft 2 and I'm not sure what to play next. I will probably go with Red Dead Redemption while waiting for Mafia 2. Speaking of gaming, I haven't done any Gaming digression post for a while, but here's something nice released this week. No it's the the Bioshock Infinite trailer, it's been everywhere... it's the preview for Deus Ex : Human Revolution. I had so much fun with the first one back in 2000 and the upcoming game looks amazing :

That's it folks.

I've also heard great things about Farlander and I look forward to reading your review of it. I recently read Shadow's Son and I'm impatiently waiting to receive my copy of The Way of Kings, which is the book I've been anticipating the most this year. Good stuff.

Oh!! I'm really excited to see what you think about the books on your TBR list. I desperately want to read each of them but have yet to attack them. Thus, I'm jealous of you....

Happy reading!

@Simcha: I remember your take on Shadow's Son, a good debut but not really unique. That's a perspective I've seen a couple of times about the book. I will know soon enough if I feel the same. I hope you get your copy of The Way of Kings soon, it's a long read :)

@Sarah: I saw you to-read list not so long ago, not bad either, all of them are great books in my opinion (although I still haven't read Bloodheir) save maybe for Imager, I'm not finished and it could turn out to be better... we'll see...

I am curious about the Farlander book. I am looking forward to your review on it. And you have a great list of books there to get through. Hope you enjoy them all.
