Above All Else by Dayton Idoni
Above All Else - Dayton Idoni

I have to say, over-explaining often got in the way, which is especially annoying in a short book. 
I was thinking of rounding the 3.5 stars down, but the originality (and the cover) won me over.

A geopolitical view of the world
Prisoners of Geography: Ten Maps That Explain Everything About the World - Tim Marshall,Scott Brick

All throughout this book I kept asking what he now had to say about this and that because it is three years since he wrote the book and Korea has a nuclear weapons capabilities now and the US has a new president and a number of other significant changes. Fascinating book. It will give you a whole new understanding of the world we live in.

The Nameless One by Lily Adile Lamb
The Nameless One - Lily Adile Lamb

Very monotonous. It was somewhat OK for the first half, but short after I stopped caring for pretty much everything and everyone, save for those poor sheep lost in the snow storm. They trusted Faine to keep them safe and instead he took them up the frozen mountain to feed on frigging snow, cause - duh! - good luck finding grass during a nor'easter.

I believe I finished the book, but maybe I skipped too many pages in the end, I don't know... I need coffee to wake up @.@ 1.6 stars.

 

Poor sheep, tho :( And wolves :( At least the nameless one should have let them finish the dead ones. Wolves need to eat, too.

Good luck following the story. It makes no sense whatsoever.

Skip it, don't waste your time.

King of the Fire Dancers (Shift Happens #1) by S.T. Sterlings
King of the Fire Dancers (Shift Happens Book 1) - S.T. Sterlings

I don't know how to rate the part I've read.

 

I loved Coy's chapters, but August's dragged on and on. He had no will and no spark. I get it, such was his life and such were his circumstances, but why did the author have to bore me out of my wits talking about him?

 

The pacing of the book certainly did not agree with me. Which is a total bummer. I had high hopes for this book :( 3 stars for the 45% I struggled through :(

 

I might continue at some point after my brain recovers a bit.
