The Farther He Runs by Lynda Aicher | Sleeping Giants by Sylvain Neuvel | Swan Riders by Erin Bow
Do you ever feel like your days have become an endless cycle of waiting for the weekend to come? I wait so long for the weekend then it goes by in a blink of an eye. So here we are. It’s Monday again. Thankfully, there’s a long weekend coming up so I’m pumped for that. But I bet it’s going to be a long week ahead.
You know what I’ve been doing nowadays? I think I’ve mentioned it before how big of a fan I am about apocalyptic films and since getting Netflix and Amazon Fire, I’ve been gorging myself silly. I’ve been watching pretty much every single superhero movies I could get my hands on. I just watched Xmen Apocalypse and Batman vs. Superman. I feel like I’m missing a storyline in B vs. S because I was so confused. So further research and perhaps a rewatch is in order. I also watched Legion the other day; it’s amazing how I could easily see the angels in Susan Ee’s books in this film. Have you seen these movies?
Anyway, back to the topic at hand. This week’s reading pile consists of two SciFi novels and one M/M romance. I thought The Farther He Runs would be a great way to cleanse the palate after reading those two books. Sleeping Giants is amazing so far. It’s an Experimental Fiction about a little girl who fell into a giant mechanical hand and grew up to lead a team to recover all the missing pieces. It’s very interesting in all the ways that matter – especially the way it’s written.
I’ve barely started The Farther He Runs so I’m reserving judgement and I’m hoping Swan Riders will be better since The Scorpion Rules was a total bore. It’s also very confusing. At the end of it all, my life neither improved nor worsened by reading the book. I hate when that happens.
Have a great week, everyone! September is upon us. Oddly enough, I’m looking forward to the changing of the season. My kids are going back to school soon as well and I’m sad about that. I know, I know. I shouldn’t. But I love having the kids at home. Anyway, happy reading!
