Reading progress update: I've read 51 out of 1006 pages.
The Shadow Rising - Robert Jordan

 

Slipping back into this series is like putting on a comfortable old pair of jeans.  Just feels like it is meant to be.

Modern Meditations: "12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos" by Jordan Peterson
12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos - Jordan B. Peterson


OK. Let me put it this way. Peterson decries the rights agenda and the railing against patriarchy, partly with the argument that Western society is the least partiarchal and the most free there has ever been. But he never asks himself why this is so, because the answer of course is that those freedoms have been won by people in the past railing against oppression and proclaiming their own right to a place at the trough - workers, women, minorities. If there hadn't been those 'progressive' moves, for want of a better word, we would still have slavery, we would have less worker representation than we do (though we're heading the wrong way again), women would still be tied to the home, and so on. He doesn't patriarchy because he doesn't suffer from it, only benefits.

Reading progress update: I've read 244 out of 350 pages.
Seraph of the End: Guren Ichinose's Catastrophe at 16 Omnibus (2-in-1 Edition), Vol.1 - Yamato Yamamoto,Takaya Kagami

Women babble, screech, are weak are 'petulant children', they are annoying, they are everything but human.

 

In this section Guren is tortured and of course doesn't give up everything, meanwhile all the women are secondary and Mito Jujo is doing her "I'm a Jujo and don't like you, but because this is for dudes I have to love you because OH GUREN you are sooo strong!"

 

Everything is about fighting and strength, there's no empathy at all. This teaches men that only anger matters and that any other emotion is wrong and bad and weak and shit.

A fantastic ending of the series.
A Conjuring of Light - Gustav Schwab

I really loved this book, it was definitely my favorite of the three books, with a gathering of shadows, being my least favorite. I definitely think AGOS, just suffered from dreaded second book syndrome. While this one took me on a journey from the very first page, until the very end. My favorite character was most definitely Rhy.i liked both Kell and Lily, but I don't know if I would have loved the book so much ,if there wasn't my baby Rhy in it. There were a couple of times I wasn't drawn into the story as much as I wanted or thought I would be. But not enough to make me want to give it a low rating. Or to throw the book across the room or anything dramatic as that.

One of my gripes is that I wish the end of the book was tied up a little bit better and I didn't like some of the relationships. I did love Rhy and his love interest. My favorite parts also was when they separated and they all had different things they had to face.
