The Leviathan has woken

This is my current reading list:

The Expanse - by James S.A. Corey

I've just finished reading Leviathan Wakes, the first book in the series, and I loved it! It reads exactly like a sci-fi tv show, so it's really easy for your imagination to build the world in your mind.

For some people that's probably not what you want in a book. But for me, I loved it.
I love books AND tv, so to have a book series that reads like a tv show AND has a tv show being made is fricken awesome.

Call me shallow if you like. That's ok by me. I'm just enjoying the pure entertainment of this awesome story.

And the sci-fi!



So, I've got quite a few books to chew through. Not to mention the fact that my sister just gave me the password to her Kindle account. Oh boy! She reads a thousand times faster than me, and has thousands of books under her belt. It's like I've just been given the keys to the kingdom. Gotta sift out the soft-core porn titles that bloomed out the ass of 50 Shades, but that's ok. There's tons of awesome fantasy and sci-fi titles in there just waiting for my eyeballs to be glued to them. Can't wait.

Also, met some awesome people at a festival recently who recommended some great titles. So, they're on my list too.

Perhaps I should write out a list. Like, as in a proper book list. Coz I'm sure I've forgotten a shitload of books I meant to put on my list, so that would be one good reason. And if I had a proper list then I would never fall into an empty book well again.

Perhaps I could write out a few different lists. I could write out the definitive THIS IS MY READING LIST list, as well as a NICE TO READ list, a MIGHT WANT TO READ list, a RECOMMENDED list, and a NEVER GONNA READ, BUT SHOULD BE ON A LIST ANYWAY list.

And the ocd 'must be organised' side of me would love making all these lists. It would be like a little project. Which, by 'project' I mean 'a procrastination tool to keep me from doing what I should be doing while also making me feel like I'm working'. Ah, dammit. Now I've gone and said that I can't do it because I know it for what it is.

Hey ho. I'll just put 'making book lists' on my list of things to do some day :-)

The Expanse

I've just started reading Leviathan Wakes by James S.A. Corey.

It's quite promising so far, and the fact there is a tv show is a huge bonus! I'm hoping to read the book before I start watching. I'm just hoping I don't have to read ALL the sequels before starting to watch the tv show.

I let Game of Thrones get ahead of me on that score. I didn't even finish the first novel before I started watching it, and I never bothered picking the book up again.

I really don't want to fall out of reading the Expanse novels in favour of the tv show.. I want to enjoy them both in tandem.

Btw, if you want to follow me on Goodreads you can find me below:


I'm HUGE on sci-fi at the moment - so please feel free to recommend some!
