Updates from the Lair is my weekly wrap-up post that includes what happened in my real life, what I’ve been reading, my posts from the week, and what I’m thinking about reading next week (and would love your advice on!).
What a week! I think I’m figuring out how to balance working and reading better since I both feel good about the grad school work I got done and finished up two books that I had been currently reading for a while. Starting Wednesday though, hubby was off work and we started the great unpacking. Then a contractor came out to try to find and fill the holes the mice might be getting into and found some rather horrible things hiding on the drop-ceiling tiles in the basement…. We found the mouse family nest and one and a half birds…. Yeah, not so fun. I’m typing this as I’m waiting for the cleaning people to finish taking out every single ceiling tile and insulation in the basement, woot woot.
Oh my god this booooooooook! I’m listening to the audio of The Fifth Season and it is AMAZEBALLS! I’ve always loved Jemisin’s unique style and beautiful writing and amazing ideas, but she is seriously taking it to the next level with this trilogy. Also the narration is fantastic and spot on so this is definitely an audiobook to pick up asap!
It took me a while to get back to and into Zer0es but I’m starting to really enjoy it. The characters are definitely a bit abrasive, but I like edgy and imperfect characters, so that’s not really a problem for me ;-). So far I approve of all the words used to discuss hacking too :D.
