Reading progress update: I've read 150 out of 200 pages.
Honey So Sweet, Vol. 1 - Amu Meguro

(There are no page numbers, so this is my best guess.)

 

This really is super sweet, and I plan on reading the next volume. But could we not with the incestuous feelings? Nao turned down Onise, the guy in her class who likes her, because she's in love with someone else: her uncle. 1) I'm almost 100% certain they're blood relatives, and 2) even if they weren't, he's been raising her since she was 6. I hate that I can think of several series where girls are raised by single guys that they end up falling in love with. I mean, it's obvious that Nao and Onise are eventually going to end up together, but still.

Reading progress update: I've read 1 out of 239 pages.
Stardew Valley Guidebook, 2nd Edition - Ryan Novak,Eric Barone,Kari Fry

It arrived earlier than expected. YAY!

 

I don't know that I'll be reading it cover-to-cover, but I'll definitely be diving into it some over the next few weeks, because I have several long weekends planned ("use it or lose it" vacation time). I have a couple farms where I've gotten far enough along to have smoothly running operations, a decent amount of money, and a spouse, but I think I might start another farm in honor of getting this book.

Binary Storm (Liege-Killer) - Christopher Hinz

This has been slow-going. I'm starting to think that Liege-Killer was the only book in this series worth reading.

 

Why does this book exist? There have been a few big revelations, but they only count as big if you haven't read the original trilogy. And if you're new to the series and were planning on reading the original trilogy after this, well, Binary Storm spoils some of the trilogy's biggest revelations.

 

I feel like the author just wanted to write a lot of world-building details. So we have lung restoratives, respirazones, servant and assistant bots, edible ads, and suicide cults. Is there a plot? I'm still waiting to find out.

 

And Hinz still sucks at writing women. I liked Bel at first, when she coolly recognized that Nick was probably complimenting her because he wanted something from her, but then she fell in lust with him. It was so out-of-character for her that even she wondered whether he'd slipped her some kind of futuristic date rape drug (there are multiple kinds, and readers got to learn the details of several of them), but no, it turns out he just has that effect on her.
