Slightly Peckish Tuesday
21 February, 2012
is back. Wayhay!
First of all, a huge congratulations to Umamimart who are celebrating FIVE years with a month of noodle posts! I’ll be reporting on my gluttonous trip to Bangkok where we ate and shopped non-stop for four days. So check out what I’ve been slurping at Umamimart: Slightly Peckish. Go on!
On the bookish front, I’ll be posting soon about my trip to Sri Lanka and the Galle Literary Festival once I sort out my pics and will be catching up on what I’ve been reading. My holiday reading this year was a fantasy fiesta, just how it should be!
Speaking of fantasy, I’m almost finished with Steven Erikson’s Malazan books (yes, I’m on the tenth and final volume) and am catching up on Ian C. Esslemont’s books. See, even if I wasn’t too impressed with his 2nd book, I still went ahead and read the next one. I’m nothing if not a loyal reader.
I also finally got back into George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series with the second volume, A Clash of Kings, and have been steadily going through them. The DVD box set of series one of A Game of Thrones is coming out next month and I can’t wait to see it.
I have to admit, after Erikson’s tightly plotted and densely written books, Esslemont and Martin’s books are a breeze (Erikson’s books take weeks to read, Martin’s took a day). But you’ll hear more about my thoughts in the coming weeks.
