Rivers by Michael Farris Smith

This is a solid book. His writing has a nostalgic, lyrical flow that wonderfully suits the story. Thumbs up.

I'm re-reading the Red Rising trilogy. It's so good!
if you aren't supposed to kill players why do they have money on their bodies when they die

I am currently re-reading "The Name of the Wind".  When I am finished that I plan to re-read "The Wise Man's Fear" then, perhaps, I will re-read "The Slow Regard of Silent Things" (all by Patrick Rothfuss).  By then -- maybe just maybe -- the third book in the Kingkiller Chronicle will be out!  *crosses fingers*

I gave up all hope when I saw Rothfuss was doing some sort of haunted stories tv show. Im not going to invest myself in the books if the author himself isn't. Never a single update on the story but he will tell you all about what Con hes going to, what politcs he agrees with, what benifit hes donating to.

In my mind it will never be finished. Pats too busy living his life and thats fine. Do as you please. But dont expect to keep my attention when you cant stay focused yourself.

Hashi's sister sent me this of his, after his death. Only got it a week ago and already halfway through it. Can understand why he took it everywhere with him! It's brilliant! :-)
Reminds me of Zalanthas sooo much!

It's a collection of short stories by Ted Chiang. I think the longest of which is Stories of Your Life, which is the book the movie Arrival is based on. I'm saving that one for last though, as the movie is still pretty fresh, and I wasn't all that impressed with it.

So far I've read Tower of Babylon, Understand, and Division by Zero.

They very thoughtful, interesting stories. Some very neat ideas in them and they're very different from each other. I highly, highly suggest everyone get a hold of this collection of short stories.

If I have a complain it's that some of these first books feel like they're set when they were written (~1990). That makes them slightly dated. But now that those are finished I'll be getting caught up with his newer stuff and I REALLY look forward to it.

Because I can't figure out picture imaging on this computer....

Here's to Us by Elin Hilderbrand---- a nice beach read about a dead celebrity chef's families coming to a cabin for his will reading

I Contain Multitudes by Ed Yong--- all about microbes, especially those on and in animals and people

The Voyage of the Jerle Shannara Trilogy by Terry Brooks--- I'd forgotten this author existed, but will likely never forget again.
