This page will be updated every few weeks to months as I read new books. I’ll be sure to briefly note how I felt about the book, whether or not I do a full review in the blog.
My primary reading genres are Fantasy first and Sci-fi second. I do make the occasional foray into other categories.
Please be aware that medical school has made me a slow reader! I believe in my heart that great writers are great readers, but time commitments are what they are. I’m doing my best.
What I’m Reading Now
I actually started reading this book a few months ago when I was in the middle of a very difficult medical school rotation. I was not able to get into it.
I suspect those feelings had more to do with the overwhelming time commitments of the rotation I was on, as opposed to Mr. Lynch’s writing.
The Lies of Locke Lamora is generally considered to be in the “canon” of modern fantasy books, and I’m excited to get going on this one and the rest of the Gentleman Bastards series.
What I’ll Read Soon
The Black Prism looks like a solid choice, with a 4.2/5 Goodreads rating, and a 4.4/5 Amazon rating.
What I Read Recently
I recently finished the first three (and only three published) books in The Legend of ZERO series by Sarah King. Ms. King is an independent writer and self-publisher, so I’m thrilled to be able to support her work.
I may get around to doing a longer review at some point, but I’ll be brief here.
I have mixed feelings about the third book, Zero’s Return. Without spoiling anything, I’ll say I thought it stepped away from the series’ traditional strengths. I also didn’t like the fact that it ended on a cliffhanger, where the previous two books were self contained stories. I am, however, willing to see where this goes, and I’ll be picking up the fourth book when it comes out.
