New blog theme is go! Wondering if I can work out a rotation thing so it can have different header images, but I like it. It feels clean, and having more column width feels a lot better, screw anyone with smaller screens.
Joined a new town on die2nite with a group of people from IRC and forums, this one should be pretty awesome but also might just be a drama filled mess, so far it’s looking great.
Almost up to date on House, then I guess I’ve just gotta catch up on Dexter. Watched Misfits the other day and that was pretty shiny.
Book review time!
The set of books I’m reading (Sheepfarmer’s Daughter, Divided Allegiance, Oath of Gold) I like em, but I think I liked the first book the most. I’m halfway through the third now, the second book made me cry (Just a bit!)
First book : A lot of building, it was interesting to see where it was going, even if it did remind me of a lot of other books. (The “Protector of the Small” series by Tamora Pierce and “The Forging of the Sword” by Mark Robson both are similar, although they’re both more aimed at kids)
Second book : Still reminded me of the Tamora Pierce, even down to the “abused horse nobody can touch but me” but I enjoyed it even if the whole village started to drag a bit. The end threw everything into a loop and made me sad but in a good way.
Third book : I’m about halfway through. The end of book 2 is quickly righted and suddenly the character is all knowing and awesome and **ON A MISSION FROM GOD**, it’s still good, but I don’t think it’s as good as the last couple of books. I’ll finish it and buy some of her other stuff, but yeah.
Books I have also read recently : City of Ember and The Hunger Games. Both good and both apparently have sequels. I have the second City of Ember on audio, just have to get round to listening to it. I decided against buying the second Hunger Games book, maybe I should, it was a fun read but I didn’t want a sequel, I was happy to just leave it there, if that makes sense. Don’t get that often…
Picked up “The Left Hand of God” Don’t bother with it, I got about halfway through and just couldn’t be bothered with it, enough so that I’ve given it away. Some guy writing his violent fantasies, which doesn’t mean terrible, but just didn’t grab me, but then again, neither did The Blade Itself and everyone raves over that.
Also took an hour or so to read all the Hatchet books again, since there’s apparently 5, not 3. Damn that guy’s written a lot of stuff.
