    I spent the afternoon reading Mister Miracle by Tom King & Mitch Gerards. The art is wicked good.

    Undying Mercenaries series by BV Larson. It's a mix of old tech and proposed. On one hand the troops die - often - and are revived using alien tech they're leasing. On the other, since galactic patent law has locked down innovation the warfare isn't advanced at all.

    One of the few contemporary Sci-Fi with a sex subplot that's actually enjoyable, even as the protagonist is a never ending fresh faced recruit; the interactions do evolve even as he doesn't. But then, that's the joy and shame of being reborn at your last save point after battling aliens. 4/10 for sci-fi, 7/10 for telling an enjoyable story.

    Just got done reading The Kingdom of Copper by S.A. Chakraborty.

    Technically it hasn't been published yet. Due sometime in January, depending on the edition - hardcover, trade, or kindle. But I won a copy in a Goodreads giveaway. Had never read the first book in the trilogy, so I read that quick just to be able to read this one.

    So so book. Not bad, but also not something I would normally read. Engaging enough I'll probably read the final one when it comes out. That will most likely be in a year based on how long this one took.

    I finished it a couple of days ago and it was pretty good... I have to admit I read it because I suspected I would agree with many of the points the author made (and I did), so it wasn't a read that took me out of my comfort zone. :p

    As for what I am reading now:

    History is the subject I hated the most when I was in school, but I like the most now. (Mainly because history is taught as a course that requires students to memorize names, dates and sequences of events instead of trying to teach the lessons we can learn from the past and to be more aware of how the world/politics works.)

    I'm currently finishing up this one - I have about 150 pages left (of the 1147):

    I thought it was pretty readable compared to other history books I've read so far. (Having sad that, what they teach in Canadian high schools about World War 2 is pretty basic and mostly involved Canada's role in the war, so a lot of this was new to me.)

    I just started this one a few days ago:

    Me, been reading the Walt Longmire mysteries - yeah, show was based on them. Working in the winter, chose a setting in Wyoming in the winter. How stupid am I? The folksy approach to crime, race relations and people in general heartwarming. Fingers still froze, but I didn't mind so much.

    I’m currently reading the four agreements which I’m not sure if it’s being super helpful by shedding light on some basic principles I’ve already thought of but haven’t put effort into or I’m just upset about things that I’m putting thought into because of the book but eh maybe it’s both

    Working my way through Tana French’s Dublin Murder Squad. Love her. The stories are a bit cheesy but her characters are excellent.
