Reading progress update: I've read 35%.
Ten Billion Days and One Hundred Billion Nights - Ryu Mitsuse,Alexander O. Smith

So we meet Asura... who is a girl that Siddartha lusts for. Or at least that's the way she's described, in sexualizing terms.

 

Oh and she's also the one destroying everything while all the men are trying to save everything or something.

So all the women we have seen so far are weeping and clingy with zero characterization.

It reads like an 80s anime, was written in the middle 90s and.. really hasn't gotten 'good' yet.

 

Ryu Mitsuse was also responsible for the mess that was Andromeda Stories and you can certainly see the same theme with the whole "seeding the earth" going on. Here it seems to be aliens, in Andromeda Stories it was the Myurat twins.

If Plato/Orionae were a woman, the book wouldn't have been translated and people would be calling her cardboard. While not like an otoge protagonist where the guys are take center stage and she gets to be acted upon, Plato is just... there's nothing there. There is no character. The plot is that Earth was an alien experiment and past and future are overlapping. It's not making any sense either

 

Then Plato dies because he hears something. But don't worry, he's been brought back to life with TECHNOLOGY.

 

Then we switch to Siddartha? He wasn't to go to the Brahmaa but Udakka is trying to stop him because well, shit ain't good and Siddartha is a prince and.. what does this have to do with anything?

Getting my reading mojo back

This weekend I downloaded three contemporary romances from OverDrive. Two I read in about 24 hours each; the third I DNF at the 9% mark. I think I got my reading mojo back. Today I went to volunteer at the library (something I haven't done all March because of adult taskings); after, I decided to browse the fiction side for a change. 

 

I came home with 12 books (8 adult fiction titles, 1 middle grade that will fill a PS prompt, 1 graphic novel) plus I still have four books coming to me via ILL. In my defense, I was left unsupervised in a library.

 

Here's what I brought home:

1. George by Alex Gino (the MG for PS prompt)

2. Paper Girls (Book One) by Brian K. Vaughn et al (collects the first 10 issues)

3. Death on Tap (Sloan Krause Mystery #1) by Ellie Alexander

4. Once Upon a Spine (A Bibliophile Mystery) by Kate Carlisle

5. A Perfect Proposal by Katie Ffjorde

6. Witches of East End by Melissa de la Cruz

7. Dark Harbor (Stone Barrington Novel) by Stuart Woods

8. The Miner's Lady (Land of Shining Water #3) by Tracie Peterson

9. One Wish (A Thunder Point Novel) by Robyn Carr

10. Island Girls by Nancy Thayer

11. Family Tree by Susan Wiggs

12. Night Road by Kristin Hannah
