June looks a lot more productive than it felt. I really fell off the wagon with the 30 Day Challenge Posts, I might still do a catch all for the last couple, but I think its time might be past. Summer is always a bit rough, what with the siren call of sun and fun but I’ve been trying to keep up with my reading. I’ve also been playing a lot of Dragon Age II. Despite my grumbling during pre-release I’ve really been enjoying it. With some minor exceptions Dragon Age II is in many ways an improvement over the first game. I’m almost done with A Clash of Kings which leaves me at sort of a crossroads. I had initially pegged A Dance With Dragons as a late July release but everywhere now says July 12. My ability to hold off and wait is extremely suspect so I don’t know if I’m going to attempt to buckle down and power through A Storm of Swords and A Feast for Crows (that’s a lot of pages for 13 days of reading). This will likely be a last minute decision. The bizarre decision on my part to read Evermore will tie into a few more YA reads starting with a review of Stephen Gould’s 7th Sigma; on deck are The Dead-Tossed Waves and Rot & Ruin. I am also in the middle of Hexed by Kevin Hearne (in audio) and even took a detour to checkout Preston and Child’s latest Gideon’s Sword (not-sff) in audio.
