It’s been a long time since I did one of these! I’ve been doing a lot of traveling which hasn’t left as much time for my usual nerdery. But having settled in one place for the next couple weeks, I have done some things now.
There are a lot of people to see and things to do when you visit family, and my reading pace has consequently slowed. I’ve been able to make some headway in the backlog of reviews I had not yet written, though, such as Heaven’s Queen (Rachel Bach), Dreamer’s Pool (Juliet Marillier), and Magic Bites (Ilona Andrews) – all scheduled to be up in the next week. I’m currently reading or recently finished Iron Night (M. L. Brennan), Broken Monsters (Lauren Beukes), and Shadowfell (Juliet Marillier).
The Amazing Race Canada. Which is not as fun as watching the two women’s hockey players destroy all competition last year, but still sort of entertaining…. plus tonight’s episode is in my hometown!
Up until the last couple of days it would have been nothing; now I’m home visiting my parents who have a PS4, which presents a great opportunity to stay up into the wee hours of the morning last night playing The Last of Us. My sisters and I are doing a sort of joint play through with two of us taking turns driving. This is great because it’s easier to marathon (I can usually only do a couple hours at a time before I need a break)… and most especially because I can throw the controller at my sister at the first sign of cannibalism, because apparently that’s how I roll.
We finished Winter last night, so I suspect we are nearing the end… and I have to say, I will be sad to done. It’s a great game, but aside from that it is too much fun to share all the screaming and panicking and profanity with other people.
