Reading has been on the back burner these past couple months. As I scrolled through my reading/books category on my blog, I notice how I haven’t been posting as many book reviews. Reading is a huge hobby of mine and I want to make it more of a priority. I have brought my book to work so I could read on my lunch break which I really enjoy doing, but I also want to read right before bed because it does help me sleep better. Take a look at the books I’m currently reading.
Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson
Steelheart follows the story of David Charleston, a young man growing up in the U.S. where epics reign. Epics were regular humans when exposed to Calamity (a red sun that appears in the sky) gain superpowers. All epics have used their powers to kill or rule over humans and David’s dad was killed by Steelheart, a very powerful epic. David joins the Reckoner’s, a small army of humans who engage and kill epics. David and the Reckoner’s attempt to take down Steelheart and other epics in the trilogy.
This series is one of my favorite sci-fi trilogy’s. I normally never re-read books, but I wanted to be in the mood to finish the third book Calamity. I haven’t read Calamity yet, so to prepare I am going back and re-reading the other books Steelheart and Firefight.
Warcross by Marie Lu
Emika is a teenage hacker struggling to pay her rent. To make extra cash, she works as a bounty hunter for the police capturing smaller criminals the police doesn’t have time to track. She is a gamer and used to play WarCross, a popular video game almost everyone in the world plays. The WarCross championships are this week, and Emika tries to hack into the game. She is caught by the game’s creator Hideo Tanaka and offered a position to spy on the on the tournament to catch other hackers in the game.
That’s the most basic premise to the story I can give because I’m only a couple chapters into the book. The average rating for this book on goodreads is 4.23 stars so I’m anticipating I will enjoy this book.
Scooby Doo Apocalypse Volume #1
Imagine if the Scooby Doo gang were involved with killing zombies. This comic brings the team together in a new way to fight off alien creatures. Each team member gets an updated look including Daphne who looks a lot more kick ass than her cartoon counterpart. I haven’t finished this comic yet, but I will admit it’s a pretty fun comic to read especially if Scooby Doo was apart of your childhood.
Hopefully, I will start posting comics and book reviews again because I miss writing them. Also Happy Halloween because this post magically coincides with my favorite day in October.
