dates (started-finished) | author | title | short review

? - 1/3/16 | Stephen King | The Dark Tower: The Dark Tower | Wonderful, beautiful book, but Jesus, some of it is pretty damn cruel.

? - 1/6/16 | Stephen King | Under The Dome | Wonderful book, but really disturbing, and I think it's actually applicable to some shit today as well as when it was originally written.

1/12/16 - 1/13/16 | Stephen King | Gerald's Game | Definitely avoid if you're triggered by the subjects it discusses, but it's a wonderful book. Jessie is one of his best female characters, I think.

? - 1/16/16 | Cheryl Rainfield | Scars | Very triggering book, as a warning, but wonderful.

? - 1/27/16 | Stephen King | It | Amazing book. The miniseries, while damn good, does not do it justice.

? - 1/29-16 | Stephen King | Doctor Sleep | Amazing book. Abra definitely makes it, as does Danny Torrance's journey. And the True Knot are awesome villains.

? - 2/9/16 | Stephen Chbosky | The Perks of Being A Wallflower | Wonderful book.

2/10/16 - 2/10/16 | Terry Pratchett | The Color of Magic | Wonderful, entertaining book, and a good introduction into this verse.

? - 2/28/16 | Stephen King | Duma Key | Powerful, moving book.

? - 3/1/16 | Stephen King | Lisey's Story | Great book, but Scott's backstory is fucking heartwrenching.

? - 3/3/16 | Stephen King | Insomnia | Started off as confusing at first, but the ending is...really moving. And the love story in the book is just plain beautiful.

3/6/16 - 3/6/16 | Joe Hill | Heart-Shaped Box | It's usually hard to get into Hill's style for me, but I liked this one!

? - 3/6/16 | Terry Pratchett | The Light Fantastic | Wonderful, just wonderful. Really creative spin on tropes and such.

3/6/16 - 3/6/16 | Terry Pratchett | Snuff | Really enjoyable book! Don't know if I'm reading the Discworld series in the right order, but nevertheless, I'm starting to love it.

? - 3/8/16 | Stephen King | Desperation | Damn good book.

? - 3/17/16 | Stephen King | 11/22/63 | Amazing. Book. The ending is just...damn.

? - 3/25/16 | Stephen King | The Talisman | Beautiful book.

? - 3/27/16 | Stephen King | Firestarter | Great book. Charlie McGee's relationship with her dad is wonderful.

4/4/16 - 4/4/16 | Stephen King (as Richard Bachman)| Thinner | Wonderful, creepy, goddamn bleak book.

4/7/16 - 4/7/16 | Stephen King | Christine | Just bonechilling.

4/19/16 - 4/19/16 | Cheryl Rainfield | Stained | Really gripping, awesome book.

4/20/16 - 4/20/16 | Stephen King (as Richard Bachman) | The Regulators | Goddamn disturbing book.

? - 4/22/16 | Stephen King | The Tommyknockers | Actually a lot better than I thought it would be!

5/8/16 - 5/8/16 | Claudia Gray | Bloodline | Major, major step up from the last Legends stuff. Leia is a badass here.

? - 5/26/16 | Stephen King | Bag of Bones | The climax was awesome! Other than that, I'd say the book was okay.

6/7/16 - 6/7/16 | Stephen King | End of Watch | Amazing end to the Bill Hodges trilogy. Seriously.

pronker asked me this:

We've passed the 6 month mark for 2016. How is the year going, fandomly, RL, either or both?

To be perfectly honest, I'm just going to be happy this year is over because of how rough it's been. Mostly, I've been coping with it via my writing. I've been working on a bit of a massive prequel story for The Force Awakens that outlines what exactly happened to Ben Solo to make him who he is and that's also been overwhelming just in terms of keeping track of different bits of canon information (as the new EU pulled the rug out from under me by saying that Ben was actually twenty-three when he fell, so, thanks a million, EU. /sarcasm), worrying about getting characterizations right (good thing is that I'm coming through with quite a bit of affection for Luke thus far), worrying about mishandling delicate subjects that come up (it's sort of like walking a tightrope), things like that. But it has been a good coping strategy. I've also been handling some stuff re: old emotions springing up from the Legends canon because...well, you know how in the old days I ranted about how much Luke was mishandled? (Boy, were those days embarrassing!) Well, that was just the tip of the iceberg, actually. So was Legends!Han basically wishing Jacen/Caedus was dead. So I've been sorting through some old emotions on that. A lot of them. Most of it's been a lot of sorting-through-old-emotions. It'll definitely be something by the time I've completed the story.

And I've been working on my original fiction as well. I admit that there was a moment I lost my passion for original fiction (call it a major bad patch, honestly) but I have been recovering it. At least that bad patch has also given me the opportunity to reexamine certain things and start cleaning them out. Which counts for something.

Genderflipped Force Awakens Casting

Haven't done one of these in a long while. Anyway, I figured that I'd do this just because it kind of struck me out of nowhere.
