What are you reading?


Time to bump.

Not sure what the feeling is towards audio books, but I’ve been listening to a whole host of audio books this year.

At the moment I’m listening to Dan Brown’s Origin. Must say I’m am enjoying the book a lot! It’s really gripping and exciting. But damn Dan Brown is not a fan of the Catholic Church. This book is full of attacks on the church.


I want to do the audio books but I find that they put me to sleep. I am busy with Trudi Canavan Age of the five series - The priestess of the white



Nice and light, good clean fun books.


Same. I just want to sleep after 5 minutes of listening.

Bought a bunch of cheap (old) books from the secondhand bookshop(s) here. Busy with Dragondoom by Dennis McKiernan at the moment.


Reading Waylander II: In the realm of the Wolf by David Gemmell


I’ve been captivated by Brandon Sanderson’s Stormlight Archive series. It’s been great to get stuck into some 1000 page epics again.


Can’t wait for the next Mistborn book.




Started reading Stephen King’s Needful Things. Not to bad so far.


Stephen King? It like you were at the meetup.


I am busy with Trudi Canavans Magician series, I finished her The Voices last week.

Im saving the Mistborn book for the holidays.


Reading the Red Rising series by Pierce Brown. Very good first person modern space opera.


I am currently “reading” (listening via audiobooks) to The Subtle Art Of Not Giving A F*ck. Well, I am in the process of stopping, as the book started well and insightful, but this last half of it is not engaging at all, and the author is a bit insufferable.


I’ve been struggling to finish Dragondoom by Dennis McKiernan, I just don’t enjoy the story.

Loadshedding just hit me so I think I’ll pick up a book now. Gonna give Against the Day by Thomas Pynchon a bash.


I guess he didn’t give a f*ck.


I didn’t even know this was a genre (or subgenre)



Farseer Trilogy by Robin Hobb. Currently on Book 3.

After I’m done with that I think I will just continue with her other books, because I actually want to get to the latest trilogy but decided to re-read the books in order.


Reading the Lightbringer series, the black prism, just finished reading IT


Started with Against the Day by Thomas Pynchon, but I’m not feeling it so I switched to The Wind-up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami. This one I am feeling, really grabs you from the first page. I really enjoy the writing style.


Okay, time for a resurrection of the thread.

In January I finished Ready Player One, and I absolutely loved the book. I couldn’t stop listening, and the narration done by Will Weaton was fantastic. I feel like I’m a better nerd now for finishing the book.

I’ve now moved on to Mythos by Stephen Fry, also narrated by Stephen Fry. Holy balls 3 chapters in and I can’t stop listening. It’s such a novel way of interpreting the age old myths of the Greek gods, and Stephen is a fantastic writer and story teller.
