After many ifs and buts about what sci-fi I'll take on, I wanted to attempt to stick to modern writers like Alastair Reynolds and John Scalzi, but after the latter's Old Man War, I have had trouble finding any good. So I took all the accolades to heart, and finally started listening to Isaac Asimov's Foundation.

I am two chapters in and have never experienced a science fiction book that've been this easy to get into in. Even if it's a very high-concept story, it is presented by very simple and relateable characters which is a large part of why I liked this at once as soon as I started it

I'm still working my way through the Night Circus but I have just lost all interest in it. That's likely due to how seldom I pick it up but I am dying to give it a break and start another book... but I don't want to have to come back to Night Circus for a 3rd time.

It's not bad, it's just not what I want to be reading right now.

The Scarlet Pimpernel by Emmuska Orczy

For an adventure story, it was surprisingly boring. 75% of the book must have been spent examining every single one of Marguerite's thoughts over and over and over again. The Scarlet Pimpernel is barely in the damn thing.

Porno by Irvine Welsh. Trainspotting sequel. It's good. Second time I've read it.
