Unexpected fatigue and dadding kept me from being as productive this week as I'd thought I would be six days ago -- I spent an entire day without touching my laptop! Practically un-heard of.


Still, I managed to find a few odds 'n ends over the week about books and reading that caught my eye. You've probably seen some/most/all of them, but just in case:














  • The Last Astronaut by David Wellington -- in a future where humanity has given up on space exploration, something unknown shows up in our solar system so the last person trained to go into space is called into action. Interesting concept, seeming great execution. See what Char's Horror Corner had to say.


  • The Wolf’s Call by Anthony Ryan -- second week in a row for a fantasy title that makes me think about diving into the world some more.


  • Jade War by Fonda Lee -- I liked Jade City (just not as much as the collective reading community did), an am intrigued by the second volume in the trilogy. Looking forward to seeing what people say about it.


Lastly, I'd like to say hi and extend a warm welcome to brian2010, TooFullToWrite and fionac13 for following the blog this week.
