Picked up Ubik the other day. Really excited to start reading contemporary lit again after a very full schedule of British Victorian women last term -- less dry than I expected but none of it existential sci-fi.

I started the Stormlight Archive around the time the second book came out before realizing there are going to be a fuckton of books to wait for. I'm already upset that Rothfuss hasn't put out a new Kingkiller book yet after missing the deadline by like a year, I hate waiting just a little bit more than I like epic fantasy.

Rothfuss put a deadline on the new Kingkiller book and then missed it? I expect literally nothing from that man at this point, and yet he still somehow finds a way to disappoint. Impressive.

I doubt the deadline was his decision. I'm sure it came from the publisher, since in every interview that he's asked about a release date he's said there isn't one. Still tho, give us the goods!! I want more lute rock and Shakespearean sex fairies.

Picked up Bram Stoker's Dracula after reading an excerpt of it in my English class and loving it.  I like Stoker's prose quite a bit, and I've always been interested in classic vampire literature, so being made to read that excerpt was quite a happy coincidence.

I just finished reading Salman Rushdie's Two Years Eight Months and Twenty-Eight Nights, which was about as awesome as nearly everything else I've read by Salman Rushdie, which is to say very. The man has some great stories up his sleeve, and damn does he write them well.

Having followed Matt Colville (and his youtube channel) for quite a while, I finally decided to read his books (having just gained access to Kindle Unlimited), Priest and Thief. They ended up being exactly as I had expected from a D&D DM. The writing's a bit amauterish sometimes, but the worldbuilding is absolutely amazing. All in all, I've really liked them, and can't wait for the third book, Warrior, to come out.

Today I've begun reading Free the Darkness (King's Dark Tidings Book 1), as I continue to exploit my free 30 days of Kindle Unlimited.
