    The worrying thing here is how you were exposed to pewdiepie to pick up a recommendation.
    Heh I watched some of his Dark Souls play-through vids a while back.
    His book review episode randomly appeared on my utub feed and I was somewhat surprised by the, for him, unusual content and as such decided to check it out - wasn't a half-bad watch actually.

    Oh and so far Children of Time is really quite good

    Currently reading my way through the Mongoliad

    Learning all kinds of interesting things about Mongol culture along the way, bit of a black hole in history for me tbh.

    Just finished a reread of Ready Player One before the film comes out. I still like it for what it is. Curious how the film will handle a few points.

    also, because i could - took a photo

    Started Seveneves by Neal Stephenson, which so far has been good.

    Children of Time by Adrian Tchaikovsky I finished a while ago and it was great - recommend to anyone.

    Just read the 1st 2 books of Tchaikovsky's latest series. Very good, the second book is much better than the 1st as the over arcing plot is developed.
    As with all his books its based on a clash of cultures. 3rd book is due out this year, its great to have another prolific writer like sanderson

    Also just noticed latest book by Will wight appeared in my kindle library , Sky Sworn. Really enjoying so far, this is also a great series if you havnt read the other 3

    Seveneves is a book of 2 parts.

    Honestly they're so distinct that it's easier to think of them as 2 different stories in the same book.

    I really really would love more of the second book. Would watch the shit out of the TV show as well.

    After my Ready Player One intermezzo to be up to date with the current hype, I'm back to The Expanse series, book 5 Nemesis Games.

    Halfway in, it's quite different than the first four books. No space goo so far. The Rocinate's crew completely split up for the first time since they came together, scattered all over the place, doing their own business. Which - besides the actual stories going on, turns out to be a whole bunch of character building/origins stories.

    As with the previous books, I'm quite enjoying it so far. Awaiting the space goo's return.

    Reading Babylon's Ashes (Expanse #6) ... wasnt such a fan of Cibola Burns, but liked Nemesis Games better again, that was a while ago though. Babylon's Ashes somehow seems a bit bland now .. dunno .. maybe the break since i read the last was too long, or i ve read too much SF in the last year ... ^^

    Didnt realise there was such a thing.

    The reviews on the expanse comic books are a bit low. I might skip them.

    Currently reading War of Nerves

    Holy shit chemical weapons are terrifying. Even the training described in the intro, where the final test is to actually work with live VX is staggering. Also reading how modern Europe might have been very different if Hitler had decided to go to town with some of the early nerve agents gives chills. Given it's published in 2006, will be interesting to see if there is a follow on that covers the Syrian gas attacks.

    Pity you just ordered it. I generally don't keep hard copy books unless they are reference material, so would be happy to post it to you once I've finished it.

    Offer stands for the silent lurkers as well (but Lark has first dibs)
