You should be nicer to me.

I submitted a story for that, and it was rejected, so now I'm bitter and angry and boycotting them.

Nah I'll pick it up and get to it when I'm done with A Song of Ice and Fire (which will be sometime next year).

Have you tried being an unfunny internet personality? High rate of success with that one.

Not only being a funny Internet personality, but being an incredibly prolific one, who also happens to be a shape-shifter and also sometimes a non-shape-shifting robot. Wink

I'm reading Beautifully Unique Sparkleponies.  It's thought-provoking (expected), vulgar (expected), and a bit reminiscent of Haruki Murakami (not at all expected).  I would happily recommend it if you enjoy topical essays and humorously harsh invective.

Huh.

Well.

Huh.

I was going to pass on that, but I guess I'll have to check it out now.

Just letting everyone know that This Is How You Die, the "sequel" to Machine of Death, is coming out tomorrow (Tuesday). And by all accounts, it's even better than the first.

If you aren't excited you are wrong.



This is easily the best purchase I've made all year.

Right now I'm in the middle of re-reading Revan, which makes me want to replay KOTOR and KOTOR II, and reading The Cuckoo's Calling by Robert Galbraith (aka J.K. Rowling). Cuckoo's Calling is really good so far. MUCH better than Casual Vacancy. If you liked the HP books, this one I think you'll actually like, unlike TCV.

Also, has anyone read the Divergent and/or Mortal Instruments series? I want to know if they're as good as people say they are.

And I recently read the Son of Sobek short story by Rick Riordan, which has Carter Kane from Kane Chronicles meeting Percy Jackson from...well, you know. AWESOME. I only wish we'd gotten some from Percy's point of view though, because it's all from Carter's POV. Also, that ending is way too big to be left to more short stories. There needs to be a whole series just on the crossover.

I didn't mind Casual Vacancy. Yeah it felt a bit melodramatic-for-melodrama's-sake at times, like she had a check list of terrible things that needed to happen to the characters, but I don't think it deserved all the hate it got and I can kind of understand her wanting to showcase the darker side of humanity after seven massive tomes of "love conquers all."

I read a book:



But I also read a book that wasn't for a Victorian Lit class:



It's really really good, even if you're not a David Byrne/Talking Heads fan I'd imagine. Bonkava at least should probably check it out

I know I'll get it, read the introduction, then shelve it for years and talk as if I read the whole thing.

I've heard Ready Player One is a really good book, so I want to check that out.

I somehow ended up reading it and wasn't overly impressed. Seemed to be more about making 80s references than interesting characters or story.
