Well, this Sunday was a decent day as I finished a couple books today. Cold Days by Jim Butcher is the 14th book in The Dresden Files series(almost done the released books! woo!) and You Are a Badass is a self-help book all about the law of attraction. As with other Dresden Files books, this book ended so excitingly. Spells flying everywhere, everyone has their own agenda, and Harry bumbling through the situation like always but still out-thinks everyone in the end. The Dresden Files has such great pacing and still, 14 books in, it is very familiar, yet has changed to become even better.
You Are a Badass is all about hyping the reader up into believing they are the next best thing to sliced bread. I don’t know if I really believe in the law of attraction, if you believe it, you will get it, type of stuff, but it is positive to think that way. This is one of those self-help books that feels great while you are reading it but you won’t really remember a whole lot of it. I’m hoping the thing I take away from it the most will be that it is important to love yourself for anything amazing to happen to you.
Overall, I spent a little over 6 hours reading this weekend(Fri, Sat, Sun). I was hoping to hit at least 9 hours but 6 is alright too.
Other than finishing these books it was a pretty relaxing day. I went to church, finished up reading Genesis(I love the story of Joseph), and spent time with the family. It was a good day and I was happy that the new computer at the church for the audio/visual system worked fine this morning after I set it up early in the week. I’m hoping for a great week at the library where a lot of kids should show up to sign up for summer reading.
I am shifting into my Hugo reading preparation in June. I am going to reread Ninefox Gambit by Yoon Ha Lee and give Raven Stratagem another try. I failed to finish Raven Stratagem last year as I just got super bored reading it. I’m hoping it was just my mood when I first gave it a try. I struggle with Yoon Ha Lee’s writing for the most part but I’m hoping with some quality focus I can figure out his writing style more and love it like everyone else. Anyway, I hope everyone has a great week. Thanks for reading.
