CLICK. by Luther M. Siler – Quick, Fun, Inter-Dimensional Action

I got Click. directly from the author after I won a contest on his site. I was the first to comment a random word from a video he posted, proving I actually watched it.

Click. is an exciting and action-packed story that’s easy to digest and hard to put down. As is typical with Siler’s stories, the dialogue is snappy and sarcastic, with one-liners and pop culture references peppered throughout.

#AmConsuming: No Time for Binging

My lack of real consuming time continues, but there are a few interesting things I’ve picked up over the last month or so.

No more procrastinating!

#AmFinished

The Path of Daggers, Robert Jordan

I finished the eighth book of The Wheel of Time last week, and overall, it was alright. I gave it a 3-star review on Goodreads, because the ending I thought was coming was sort of punted into the next book (or three). Jordan also yadda-yadda’d what probably should have been a pivotal battle sequence in the epilogue.

I’m definitely going to keep reading this series, but I’m taking a break with some other things for now.

#AmReading

The Horse, The Wheel, and Language: How Bronze-Age Riders from the Eurasian Steppes Shaped the Modern Worldby David W. Anthony (Audible)

I’m still plugging away at this extremely long audiobook, but I’ve largely enjoyed it. The main reason I haven’t finished it is because by the time I get into my car for my evening commute, my phone is nearly dead and I need to charge it. In short: I need to have a phone charger at work.

Click., by Luther M. Siler

This is the next book I started as a break from Jordan. I won this book from the author’s blog by being the first to respond to one of his posts. It is otherwise only available from his Patreon site, or directly from him at conventions. Considering he’s based in northern Indiana (and I haven’t yet delved into Patreon), I jumped at the chance to pick up a copy.

Like his other writing I’ve read, this book is quirky, sarcastic, and a little bit goofy–and I’m enjoying the heel out of it. I’m a measly 20 pages in, but I know I’ll like it. His writing style is infectious.

City of Bridges, by Stace Dumoski (Wattpad)

I am also still picking away at this one, and enjoying it very much. Some of the more fantastical and world-building elements of the story are starting to poke through, so I’m looking forward to continuing this one.

#AmWatching

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Hulu

I started watching season 7 episode to episode on Hulu, and it’s been alright. This show has recycled previous plot devices and characters in interesting ways for a few seasons, but this season feels a bit more redundant than before. I get the feeling were nearing the end of this show’s lifespan, unless Disney gives it new life on their streaming service.

Still, I’ve enjoyed spending time with Daisy, Fitz, Simmons, and various versions of Clark Gregg this long, and I see no reason to stop now.

That’s It!

Told you I have little time for binge-watching/reading.

On a side note, my wife and I “inherited” her brother’s PS2 recently, and I started playing through Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. I’ve never played any GTA game except to wreak havoc on my friend’s versions, so this is a new experience for me. I also haven’t had time to sit down more than once, so I didn’t add this to the list yet. My wife, however, is really enjoying Ratchet and Klank, so there’s that.

For Whom Do You Write? (Hint: it always changes!)

Most of us say that we only write for ourselves, that it doesn’t matter how the outside world perceives our stories because we poured our hearts…
