My life/ books I’ve finished
Still no books finished 😦 but last week has been pretty exciting. I went out twice with my old support worker/ friend who is very experienced with people with autism (like myself). On Thursday (our usual day for meeting up) we went around Llandudno town riding on the buses, then we went to her (quite remote) home in a nearby village to see her new chicks who had hatched not long ago, but not before we were given a formal greeting by Hugo, one of her dogs who was very happy to see us.
Yup, as soon as we opened that door all three of her dogs gave us a proper doggy welcome! 😀 Anyway, we then went upstairs to her room where her newest chicks were being kept under a heat lamp, this was the smallest and most vulnerable and of course cutest, of them all…
Here are the others..
Apart from having chicks that are the very definition of cute, I’ll say another thing, she has some stunning views from her patio..
This Sunday she also came round and we went walking near Swallow Falls like last week but this time to an old Victorian summer-house on top of a hill. It was exhausting getting up there but the views afterwards were stunning!
Too bad the weather wasn’t clear otherwise it would’ve been loads better
But at least mum will be coming home on Friday yipee!
Books I’ve recently added to my TBR
The Stone in the Skull by Elizabeth Bear
Yay another Asian based epic fantasy all my close friends will know that I can’t get enough of these!
His Majesty’s Dragon by Naomi Novik
I heard about this one as a recommendation for fans of Kate Elliott’s Cold Magic.
I mean I love dragons (if they’re done right) and I love alternate history so this should be good, however if it goes into heavy detail about military strategizing then it could be boring….
The Man in the High Castle by Philip K. Dick
A classic in the alternate history section by a much praised author.
Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld
Another one for the alternate history crowd (like myself) and this one is by one of my favourite authors too.
Books I’ve recently acquired
Seventh Decimate by Stephen R. Donaldson
Love high fantasy and was able to get an arc of this for review, it doesn’t have a high rating on GR but I just don’t want it to be boring.
Splintered by A.G. Howard
Always wanted to read an Alice in Wonderland retelling and since a lot of my friends thought highly of this….. that cover tho!
