    i just read some low grade smut (which is what i call a lot of sci fi) and i read some random fantasy as well
    but it's a pain in the ass to start reading a series only to find out it's not finished, and then do it again with the next series you start...

    i picked up the lightbringer series.. which i've actually enjoyed.
    and the smut was the legend of zero series. i really had a lot of fun with the intergalactic species battle lol. some pretty basic shit in there but hrm kind of the vibe of the edge of tomorrow is what i imagined. fast paced.


    then i read the lies of locke lamora and i was really in and out of it. sometimes the writing is really good, and others it's very stale. all the character interactions were pretty entertaining but the world building was a bit blocky to get through at times.


    i think i also picked up the first law trilogy based on the mentions here, haven't started it yet, tho

    Then all the nations of birds lifted together
    the huge net of the shadows of this earth
    in multitudinous dialects, twittering tongues,
    stitching and crossing it. They lifted up
    the shadows of long pines down trackless slopes,
    the shadows of glass-faced towers down evening streets,
    the shadow of a frail plant on a city silló
    the net rising soundless as night, the birds' cries soundless, until
    there was no longer dusk, or season, decline, or weather,
    only this passage of phantasmal light
    that not the narrowest shadow dared to sever.

    And men could not see, looking up, what the wild geese drew,
    what the ospreys trailed behind them in silvery ropes
    that flashed in the icy sunlight; they could not hear
    battalions of starlings waging peaceful cries,
    bearing the net higher, covering this world
    like the vines of an orchard, or a mother drawing
    the trembling gauze over the trembling eyes
    of a child fluttering to sleep;
    it was the light
    that you will see at evening on the side of a hill
    in yellow October, and no one hearing knew
    what change had brought into the raven's cawing,
    the killdeer's screech, the ember-circling chough
    such an immense, soundless, and high concern
    for the fields and cities where the birds belong,
    except it was their seasonal passing, Love,
    made seasonless, or, from the high privilege of their birth,
    something brighter than pity for the wingless ones
    below them who shared dark holes in windows and in houses,
    and higher they lifted the net with soundless voices
    above all change, betrayals of falling suns,
    and this season lasted one moment, like the pause
    between dusk and darkness, between fury and peace,
    but, for such as our earth is now, it lasted long.

    seriously? It's not that bad. I would give that title to Neil Gaiman hands down.
