Finished Cibola Burns (13), good but not as good as the first 3. Still worth the read. Now, to begin with TSA reread before TUC hits the shelves.
“No. I am your end. Before your eyes I will put your seed to the knife. I will quarter your carcass and feed it to the dogs. Your bones I will grind to dust and cast to the winds. I will strike down those who speak your name or the name of your fathers, until ‘Yursalka’ becomes as meaningless as infant babble. I will blot you out, hunt down your every trace! The track of your life has come to me,

Just finished The Darkness That Comes Before(14), by R Scott Bakker. Don't know if you have heard of the guy or not, but its goooood stuff.

Worst series I have ever read.I hated it so much that I bought and read all the available books more than one time just to bitch about it.
“The thoughts of all men arise from the darkness. If you are the movement of your soul, and the cause of that movement precedes you, then how could you ever call your thoughts your own? How could you be anything other than a slave to the darkness that comes before?”

Finished The Thousandfold Thought and The Great Ordeal (16&17). About halfway through Nemesis Games, but doubt ill finish by the time TUC comes out. At which point I will drop whatever it is I'm reading.

Thanks for the rec BK! :)

Finsihed Threee Body Problem (20), onto the sequel The Dark Forest. TBP was a really interesting read, but alot of scientific lingo that went over my head. Didnt hurt the plot or pacing though. Good book!

I want to read that, but I am going to wait until The Stone Sky comes out on the 15th and I can finish it first.
“I am a warrior of ages, Anasűrimbor . . . ages. I have dipped my nimil in a thousand hearts. I have ridden both against and for the No-God in the great wars that authored this wilderness. I have scaled the ramparts of great Golgotterath, watched the hearts of High Kings break for fury.” -Cet’ingira

Ehhh, instead of starting The Dark Forest, I've opted to give The Court of Broken Knives, Anna Smith Sparks. Just started and I'm liking it alot. You can tell its gonna full of intrigue and bloody mayhem!!!
