Finished Dark Tower, really didnt enjoy it towards the end at all. Back on Brent weeks lightbringer series book 4 Blood mirror! So good thus far !

 

100% couldn't get into Lightbringer. Really liked the Night Angel stuff though, that was a world that could've done with more exploring. Plus it was the best kind of mindless garbage :P

 

Ironically Night Angel was Ok for me not great(better than Dark tower :P) i way prefer lightbringer

Halfway through my reread of Gardens of the Moon, the first time I read it was almost 10 years ago now but I never managed to carry on with the series as I was pretty shocked when I started reading Deadhouse Gates only to find it was set on another continent, with mostly new characters. Hopefully this time around with that surprise behind me I'll be able to work my way through the entire series.

 

I must say I did forget just how many different plot threads are woven through GotM, I only really remember the general outline of what occurs, so it's a pleasant surprise that most of the book has so far felt fresh and new.

Finished the Revenant. Bit different to the movie. Great book other than a very very average ending.

Just finished Naomi Alderman's 'The Power'. Damn that was a good book. I mean, I'm now terrified of women and their electrical abilities, but it was worth it.

 

Seriously, great SF.

Finished Livia Lone by Barry Eisler, another great book by this author. An emotional and twisted thriller with a memorable protagonist.

Started reading The Silver Eyes which is a retelling of Five Nights at Freddy' s. The book got a lot of complaints as fans of the found it too hard to separate the game canon from this retellings story. I dread of a security guard the book is set in the 90's and follows the daughter of the pizza places founder who comes back to town 10 years after the death of a childhood friend. The creator of the game helped co write the book so it does have some mythos from the games but is adapted to fit the medium better. All in all so far I am enjoying it much more than the games but it is more teen horror mystery than the jump scare try and figure it out of the games.
