When my job goes from PreSeason work to the regular job (Sitting around all day handing out keys) hopefully I won't need to watch over a edgy racist 14 year old and stop him from causing trouble again. I will be able to to read on the job again.
I plan to get back into reading Spice and Wolf. I believe I am on volume 6.
I'm not technically reading these right now because I'm eagerly awaiting the 6th book, but I just want to make a recommendation for Red Rising by Pierce Brown.
It's the first book of a completed trilogy (with a second trilogy currently in progress).
The first book is basically Harry Potter crossed with Game of Thrones, but in a Star Wars setting. It's pulpy in a great way with space battles, political intrigue, 1v1 combat, and once it got going I found it almost impossible to put down. The later books just get crazier and crazier as the conflict grows to encompass more factions.
I highly recommend them if you're in the mood for high-intensity action. They make The Expanse (which is not a bad series by any means) look like a trip to grandma's house.
I'm more than halfway through Mistborn: The Final Countdown Empire. I haven't powered through a thick-ass fantasy book like this since the later Harry Potter novels, so it's been pretty wild to jump back in.
Enjoying it so far, even if it had a very slow start. It's also very relatable how the main characters are absolutely terrible at stealth.
