Freeform Friday 2

Simply write about the first thing that comes to your mind …. NOW!

Books!!!!! I found this really interesting article a while back called “10 Books You Pretend to Have Read (And Why You Should Really Read Them)” and I’ve taken it upon myself to do so!

I’m going out of order, but I’ve started with Asimov’s Foundation. I’m going to read the “original three” to start and then branch out to others. I remember back in junior high trying to read Foundation and getting bored with it pretty fast. But starting it up again, this book feels like a “legacy” type book spanning multiple generation, and I really enjoy the long story at this point, probably not so much back then. 8^D

Speaking of books, I also finished off the first book in the Molly Fyde series by Hugh Howey (of Wool acclaim). I’ll admit that it wasn’t as gripping in the beginning as Wool was for me, but I started to enjoy the plot and character development involved. Plus there are some really interesting aliens in the mix here. While I won’t be devouring them as fast as I did Wool, I’m definitely going to work through the series.

What books have you been reading lately. What ones are you planning on starting?

  1. Recently finished up Lies of Locke Lamora, the first book in the Gentleman Bastards series by Scott Lynch, which I really enjoyed. Waiting on the next one in the series from the library.

    Also recently finished The Devil’s Only Friend, the latest in the John Cleaver series by Dan Wells, which while I enjoyed it, may definitely not be for everyone. :)

    As for what I’m looking forward to reading, that is definitely Shadows of Self, Bands of Mourning, and Calamity, all written by Brandon Sanderson. Shadows of Self and Bands of Mourning are new entries in one of my favorite series, the Mistborn Series, while Calamity is the final book of his superhero-esque Reckoners series.

What are your 10 bits on the matter? I want to know!
