    Life 3.0, bit of a bucket list book for me, it's very interesting so far and makes you a little uneasy about the possible future of A.I. Only a couple of chapters in and so far

    it's designed a streaming service and every show on it in order to legitimise it's gains from learning to read and predict the stock market and crypto world

    My friend bought me Ready Player Two as a birthday gift so that's lined up next after the existential dread of a realistic super A.I. becoming smarter than humans.

    I recently finished the two books that have come out so far for The Locked Tomb series. Always been a fan of sci-fi and fantasy w/ a necromancy focus so that was kind of a no-brainer for me. Aside from that, I recently read through David Chang's memoir which was really good. I'd recommend it if you like Anthony Bourdain-flavour of "celebrity chef". Really interesting lives behind both those folks tbh.

    I haven't continued any of these books and instead read the introductions/forwards/beginning bits of two other books: Speaking Code and 10 PRINT CHR$(205.5+RND(1)); : GOTO 10

    My brain has felt very scattered so I don't think I'm gonna settle on something any time soon.

    Currently reading The Blacktongue Thief so right now I'm having weird D&D campaign vibes. So far... the worldbuilding is interesting, but pretty involved, I'm liking the background history. It makes the world feel pretty big, but there's tiny sociological-stuff that I'm not quite following along with yet.

    The only part I don't like is the dialogue. I like a lot of talk in books generally, especially if characters are supposed to be smart. But everyone seems a little too good at stringing together lyrics off the cuff. Now. I'm witty and quippy, and I roll alliterations off with no problem pretty often and I'm properly passable at puns. But I can't pull off half of the dialogue in this book as natural.

    So it's slightly overwritten in that regard, and the talk feels just at touch scripted. It might get better as I read along. But the world and plot are carrying it so far.

    After trying five separate bookstores with it being sold out in each, my order for Iron Widow has finally arrived today, so once I pick it up I'll be reading it asap! Super excited.
    Last month I burned through Fire and Blood in like two days. I have mixed feels over it, but I think it was just the narrative style.

    Just finished reading Project Hail Mary from Andy Weir! I was extremely pleased and Weir has a special talent for making very technical stuff super interesting.

    I got a bunch of books for Christmas and my B-Day so I have a looooong list books pending and I'm hella excited

    I just staretd Imaginary Friend by Stephen Chbosky and after that IDK if I should go with Ursula K. Le Guin or Isabel Allende. But yeps, off to read!

    TRASH CAN

    Special thanks to lyrichord for the amazing userbar avatar!
