What are you reading?
I picked up The Handmaid’s Tale from the local library after watching the first series. It’s always good to compare sources between books and TV series. Currently, I am enjoying the TV series more as I am finding the writing style of the book a little difficult. I always enjoy books/programs that challenge the way you think and this book certainly does that. Is a world like the dystopian one here credible? Would women really stoop to become all they are in this book after having the freedom to do anything they wanted prior? It’s an interesting read in many respects, but it’s a bit hard going.
What did you read last?
I really rate the Warhammer Adventures books, they’re a good introduction to the Warhammer settings and don’t tone down the ‘grim-dark’ as much as you’d think for a children’s book. Claws of the Genestealer is very ‘Alien’ in a lot of respects, the children being chased around both planet and abandoned ship by an alien creature. It’s a pretty thrilling ride, very fast-paced, and highly entertaining. I really recommend these books for both adults and children alike.
What will you read next?
I’ve been meaning to read some of the books already in my collection this year, so far I’ve managed a whopping… 2. So it’s time I get my finger out and get reading more. I have found myself drawn to Lorgar since reading The First Heretic, so it makes sense to pick up his Primarchs book. Especially after the announcement of another in this series, that’ll have to be purchased upon release. These are also relatively short books so they’ll help me catch up on the book count for the year!
I hope you all have a good week and managed to get some pages turned. Hopefully, I’ll be able to get some reviews written this week.
