Dreamcasting Mike Flanagan’s Dark Tower – The Side Characters
What Am I Up To?
So, what have I been up to lately? This:
What I’m Reading
I just plowed through the entire Dark Tower series by Stephen King for the second time, and I have some shocking and terrible news for you: it’s still incredible. I first started reading the series when I was around 15 years old, and was forced to wait painfully for the last four books to come out.
Being able to read them all back-to-back provided a slightly different experience. But, overall, yeah. I think it’s still my favorite book series of all time. It’s so epic and surreal and strange, with a truly unique world (well, worlds) that feel 100% real. Even the weirder meta elements in the last few books work really well for me.
12 Months of Book: A Summation (2014)
BC Johnson – Staring down the barrel of 2015 is making me nervous, down to my bones. With the exception of a rough December, 2014 has been a banner year for ‘ole B.C. Johnson. Got my first book back on its feet and at a bigger publisher. Managed to sneak a Hog McMasters story into the CQ Anthology alongside Piers Anthony. Snagged the best dayjob I’ve ever had, in the form of IT guy for a school district.
2013, on the other hand, was as awful as 2014 was sweet. So as long my luck don’t play leapfrog, I guess I might be alright in 2015. It certainly has a Star Wars movie and Avengers 2 coming out, so I guess it can’t be too bad.
Anyway, here’s all the books I read this year: why I read ’em, and if I liked ’em.
12 Months of Books: A Summation
BC Johnson – With the year ticking down to its final explosive finale (you know, with champagne) I thought I’d take a look back at the books I’ve read this year. And, with the aid of Amazon, Goodreads, and my Kindle, it actually makes it a little easier to figure out just how many books I read this year, and the order in which I read them. Looking back, this 2013 was kind of a slow year for me, book wise – I averaged about 1 book permonth. Consider my New Years resolution to read at least twice that amount next year. Books!
