MyTBR#62: w John L. Monk (and I’m back from vacation)

After a week off on vacation (where I was working on Book IV of Arts Reborn, while my beta reader is finally close to getting to Kallara’s Song, so expect some publication timelines for that and book III before too long), when they guys talked with PT Hylton about Sequels in episode#61:

I was back this week and in #62 of the To Be Read Podcast we got a chance to chat with John L. Monk, author of the Jenkins Cycle and book 1, Kick.

While I was away, I read a bunch more Adventure Time (Ryan North and Sherri Piroline for Volume 5, and Yuko Ota and Ian McGinty for Candy Capers) with my son, and finished off the Game of Thrones graphic novel series with volumes 3 and 4, adapted by Daniel Abraham and illustrated by Tommy Patterson, from George R.R. Martin’s book.

It was so well done and got me back in touch with all the characters, so I dove right into Storm of Swords, by George R.R. Martin, book 3 of A Song of Ice and Fire. It’s been over a year since I read book 2, so there were a few bits where I had to remember on the fly what was going on with different storylines, but I’m fully up to speed now. I’ve been told by many that it’s the best in the series to date, and I’m really liking it so far.

Which means I’m going to be reading it for a while yet. I’m reading every day, but usually only 2-4 chapters, so this could be a month or more. Expect short update posts here.

Yes, if you happen to buy one of these from Amazon based on my recommendation links, they’ll throw a few cents my way as a thank you. Or go get the book out of the library (I love my library), buy it in a used bookstore, or borrow it from a friend. If it catches your eye, you’ll find a way.
