    Guillotine Seche in French when it arrives and when I find my little blue dictionary from 1985, it must be somewhere. Going French.

    Maybe not now, but I've purchased my summer reading for my three month stint in the United States.

    -Altered Carbon by Richard Morgan (not seen the netflix show but like the concept on the surface)
    -Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson
    -The Secret Barrister (NF, but I kinda fell in love with British legal system after failing law)
    and, what I'm most excited for
    -a Lovecraft collection

    Currently re-reading Brandon Mull's Fablehaven series, in preparation for his follow-up series, Dragonwatch. I forgot how good they are, even though they are YA. I recommend them if you like fantasy and mythological creatures.

    Currently reading David Mack's Star Trek: Destiny series. A bit dry at times but still my favourite star trek books so far.

    Currently reading Xenotech Rising by Dave Schroeder. I picked it up at a con and it's fairly interesting so far! The MC does tech support for alien technology, and it's a fun, goofy read. IMO the plot has taken a bit to kick in, it's about halfway through and has built pretty slowly, but I'm entertained enough by the voice and humor to keep reading anyway. First in a series, might be picking up the other ones too!

    I enjoy real life adventure stories, mainly about sailing. I've read The Strange Last Voyage of Donald Crowhurst a few times, which perfectly illustrates the meaning of between a rock and a hard place.
    I'll probably read it again, because every time I find something new in the book.
    Anyway, at the moment I'm reading The Romantic Challenge by Francis Chichester, where he sails Gypsy Moth V across the Atlantic 4000 miles, trying to achieve an average of 200 miles per day, back in 1970.
    He makes 60 knots of wind sound like a light breeze.

    I just got done reading WeHave Always Lived In The Castle and if I’m being honest, it was a good book, but Mary Katherine was kind of antagonist to me? She in her own way was kind of selfish and stunted.
