Having taken the spring off to, basically, play video games, I present my Summer reading list:
Theft of Swords by Michael J. Sullivan. I’m already 40 pages in, but given its length, I don’t feel this is cheating.
A Mad Catastrophe: The Outbreak of World War I and the Collapse of the Habsburg Empire by Geoffrey Wawro. Because why did anyone fight? How was Europe ordered before the war? No one knows.
A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson. Everyone raves about this.
The First Thousand Years by Robert Louis Wilken
Gardens of the Moon: Book One of The Malazan Book of the Fallen by Steven Erikson. I’ve heard great things about this series. We’ll see.
Elective Affinities by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. This is a maybe, if I get bored, addition.
Rogues edited by George R.R. Martin and Gardner Dozois. Because look at the authors listed. LOOK AT THEM!
