I kind of got a strop on and decided 150 books as a target for the year is unreasonable and reading is not meant to be a competitive thing and 100 books in a year is more than some people read in their whole lives, so stop being an ass… Anyway, I cut it down to 100. Might adjust it again later in the year when I get a strop on the other way. We’ll see!
Favourite of the month – 100%, the audiobook of The Martian. That was so much fun. I know, I’m late to the party on this one. I have the movie to watch, so I’m looking forward to that. But the audio is great and I suspect audio is a better medium for this book than text, since so much of it is Mark’s reports, that are recordings, not things the character is supposed to have sat down and typed. The narrator really brings this to life. I think I will re-listen to this one sometime.
But so much good stuff this month. Eagerly awaited new K.J Charles book was great. Right Ho, Jeeves is one of my all time favourite books and Jonathan Cecil makes a perfect Bertie Wooster as the narrator. The John Scalzi Lock In book was excellent too. Narrated by Wil “Wesley Crusher” Wheaton, so that appealed to the Trekkie in me.
So by the time I do my next books post I will have finished A Dance With Dragons and will have joined the ranks for people side-eying George R.R. Martin and waiting for The Winds of Winter. When I will have to remind myself – hard – that waiting for the next book in a series is all part of the fun…
