What is up and some book quickreviews + kickstarter projects

I realise that I haven’t been doing much posts for a while now. I guess I should explain.
I got accepted into a university, where I’m studying student councelling, life has been really busy. I’ve also been unmotivated to do any posts on the blog due to being so busy with everything that has been going on.

Done some reading though so here are quick verdicts:

John Scalzi – Fuzzy Nation

Verdict: A book to read, I found it a pretty good read, pick it up as paperback for cheap and it is really worth it.

Patrick Rothfuss – The Wise Mans Fear

Verdict: GET! I myself am waiting for the next one..if only there were more of these..(Side note: I was a little bit disappointed about the story progression and some little things but all in all it is a great book and definately worth having..I’m just nitpicking here really..)

Kristine Kathryn Rusch – Boneyards

Verdict: I really love these three books (diving into the wreck, city of ruins) and I heartily recommend each of these, that said I think Boneyards isn’t as good as City of Ruins, but considering how good that book was..Boneyards is really worth reading though you should probably not pick this book up if you haven’t read the two before it..now to wait for the next one.

G.R.R Martin – A Dance With Dragons

Verdict: Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire gets back into the good stuff (after the book before this..) and I’m glad he does that, I do hope there won’t be a long wait for the next book..we can only hope and I think the wait will be worth it.

John Steakley – Armor

Verdict: Did I tell you this book has power armors? It does. A good book, very minor flaw (Not being more books for me to read being it!). I could not put it down, read this mostly in one sitting (had to sleep at times) very worth getting if you liked Starship Troopers.

Mark Lawrence – Prince of Thorns 

Verdict: Good, I had some minor issues with this book (Damn you for misleading me for a bit! but thanks for it too..). Going to follow this writer and read more of his books, he can do good books..and I want to read more about the world in this book.

Well that is the update with books, next onto the kickstarter
Kickstarter projects that I like and have backed:

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cig/star-citizen  (Star Citizen, very promising and already funded, but kickstarter still running)

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/obsidian/project-eternity (I’m almost wishing I could already play it..)

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/inxile/wasteland-2 (Mark Morgan Soundtrack! I’m looking forward to this!)

That is that, I think we have a pretty good update here, I’ll probably sometime do a video blog post with Piano music.
