Leviathan Wakes coverMedia: eBook/Kindle
Progress: 76%

This is one of those books I almost DNFed, but I’m so glad I didn’t.  The shit hit the fan, and while the degree is astronomical, it’s nothing that humans haven’t done before.  Grimdark in space this might be, but it’s the same old shit we’ve been doing to each other for millennium.

Title: Tigana

I was pleasantly surprised to find out Kay has written other novels, series even, when I answered a discussion question on Facebook about books.  I’m definitely reading more of his works.

Title: The Hero With a Thousand Faces
Author: Joseph Campbell
Date Added: April 24, 2014
Date Started: December 3, 2018

The Hero With a Thousand FacesMedia: Hardback
Progress: 28%

The last few chapters have annoyed me as I knew, but at least it gives me plenty of fodder for notes.

Title: The Phantom of the Opera
Author: Gaston Leroux
Date Added: November 29, 2018
Date Started: December 2, 2018

The Phantom of the OperaMedia: Paperback
Progress: 71%

Omg this novel.  I’m hoping to finish it within the next two weeks.


I’m chugging Java Monster energy drink because so sleepy.  I don’t really have much else to say except I’m hoping to have at least one of these finished by next status update.
