What I’m reading vol. 20170711

Annihilation: A Novel (The Southern Reach Trilogy Book 1) – This is one of the more interesting sci-fi books I’ve read lately. I ordered it after seeing one of my favorite artists mention it and read the reviews. I have to say I didn’t really see the “twist” at the end coming. I guess it’s going to be a movie in the next couple of years. Definitely worth the read if you like apocalyptic tales.

Dark Universe – This is an anthology of short sci-fi stories that all tie together by being in a single universe but not necessarily the same time. I’m enjoying it, each story is well written and leaves you wanting more from the author.

As soon as I am finished with Dark Universe, I’ll begin on Binti.


What I’m reading vol. 1

Training Essentials for Ultrarunning: How to Train Smarter, Race Faster, and Maximize Your Ultramarathon Performance – I wish I had read this sooner in the training season. It’s a great book and an engaging read, especially for a book on sports training. I feel I took a lot of great information from it that I will be using in my future training. Definitely worth the reading time.

The Push: A Climber’s Journey of Endurance, Risk, and Going Beyond Limits – I preordered this book. It arrived on my Kindle and I started reading it. It is taking some time for me to get through it though. It’s a not a difficult or boring read by any stretch of the imagination, but there is so much emotion in it, I am letting it soak in.
