That's the thing. I can't tell. Laughing The ending was heartbreaking, but tbh I kinda saw it coming.

Finished Nemesis Games, 5th Expanse book, now busy on Babylon's Ashes, book 6.

Ordered Memory's Legion, book of short stories set in the same universe, also the new "Rivers of London" book, (highly recommend) and Shantaram for the GF since she is enjoying the series and wants to read the book.

Hey Av! Found a copy of that Snow Crash in a second hand bookstore and snapped it up for a pound fifty!

Looking forward to reading it.

I'm finally reading A Memory of Light again. Kind of a recurring thing for me to stop reading halfway through a book around March/April and not pick anything up again until September or later.

That's not the Empire trilogy, that's the Riftwar trilogy. I like it, but the Empire one is much better. (Starts with "Daughter of the Empire")

Anyway, I finished book 8 of the Expanse, Tiamat's Wrath and now I'm on the last book, Leviathan Falls.

I'm reading The City We Became by N.K. Jemisin

Also, The Killing God appeared on my Kobo today, so I know what's next on the list! Oh wait, I'll probably reread the previous books first....

Well, I enjoyed The Expanse. Have a book of prequel short stories set in the same universe en route. In the meanwhile, I'm re-reading Rivers of London, since I have the latest release of that series on the way too. Very Happy

Three fourths of the way through Av and thoroughly enjoying it!

Not sure that the world it depicts would work for me, but some of the ideas are very compelling. Especially like the idea of the 1's and 0's of binary being representative of the 'being vs nothingness' idea of existence. As perhaps you know, I'm really into the idea of 'being' being the key thing that gives us immortality - that being, once bestowed, can never be taken away, so this is an interesting thing to contemplate - that information at the computational level is down there among the nuts and bolts of the fundamentals of existence. Nice!

Very Happy

While I'm here, can I just shout out to anyone who see's this, for the reading club I'm trying to put together for starting around the beginning of next year.

Low key affair - a few not too onerous classics per year - nothing too heavy, but hopefully some food for the soul.

Find the thread over in the general reading forum!

Hope to see you there!

Glad you're enjoying it. I think Raven may be one of my favourite sci-fi(ish) characters.

As for me...Finished Rivers of London, then while I was busy on book 2, my delivery arrived early, so I went straight to book 9, Amongst Our Weapons.

Enjoyed it, but a minor niggle was that when I (very unusually for me, with a book in a series I'm already reading) read the blurb on the back, I discovered that they had tried to make a joke in it, which, to everybody who got the joke, actually spoiled a part of the plot.

Odd decision.

Anyway, now trying to decide between going back to book 2, and reading Memory's Legion which also arrived. (Expanse short stories.)

Probably back to Moon over Soho (Book 2 of RoL) though...I'm in that mood now...

Finished that, so Bk 3, Whispers Underground. Shall nip through the rest of these, and maybe read the new one again at the end, so the GF can do the Expanse book, then shall read that.

Me too Very Happy It’s taking me ages - I’m loving though.

Love your avatar! I assume you’ve watched it to the end?
