I got a bunch of books on clearance, but then my dad packed them away before I could claim one or two for reading 🙃 so now you get a pic of Alex, the old man of the house.
(Tagged book is the only one whose name I remember...)

TalecArashi Also I still haven't done the Raft review, oops 4w

Had to finish this in a hotel room! I'll do a review later, when I'm not about to leave the hotel wifi 😅

I'm happy that this is already in the database and I don't have to turn on my PC to add it 😂 but I disapprove of the cover art it has there! That's not what the Raft looks like!! *omg nitpicking*
Here's what it should be ;D guest-starring Corvus (I told you I had more than one cat!)

This is a good book.

Probably read the first 2-3 chapters to make sure you can understand the art style, though

I went to the bookstore at my new house!(!!!) I'm not done moving yet, but nearly all of my books are in a container & my PC isn't set up yet... gotta pass the time somehow! The book under Rori is a compilation of haiku. #CatsOfLitsy #manga #scifi

Diablo III: Book of Tyrael | Blizzard Entertainment

Mehso-so

So the first third of this is a postscript to the game, Diablo 3
And the rest is lists! There's a brief history of the world, the factions both major and minor with short descriptions, and a list of characters with short bios, all written ICly by Deckard Cain with notes by Tyrael.
I expect this was made for #roleplaying and #fanfic writers, haha
The cover is REALLY nice though, and it comes with a double-sided mini poster, tucked into the back.

TalecArashi If you wanted to read more about the history of the game's world, you'd want this: 5mo

I've never played Diablo, but my husband's a big fan of the series and I watched him play D3, so I'm not in the dark with regards to what this is about 🌠

Seeing a #Recursion tag -- but not going to this book -- is making me wish I knew where my copy was :(

edit: also *why* is the paperback $56 on amazon

I picked this up because I wanted to read something new, but not something so deep or fascinating that I felt bad for reading it while my brain wasn't working so well. SF beach fare, I guess -- something where I wouldn't feel bad if I kept glazing over at a paragraph. Anyway, this worked out well for that.

(oh, right -- #scifi )

TalecArashi The cover quote compares it to old pulp SF and -- while I haven't read much old pulp SF -- I suspect it checks out. To me this means regular shots of “Who talks like that??“ and “Who *reacts* like that???“, & worldbuilding that is more interesting than the dialogue or characters. :B

The aliens are cool (non-mammalian!), and the multitude of prefaces are in themselves very neat pieces of worldbuilding.

TalecArashi Just finished the two “Appendix“ chapters that end the book. The first one is... kinda bad. The second one is actually good though, as good throughout as any single high point from the main story, imo. 5mo
RaimeyGallant Nice review. :) And welcome to Litsy! #LitsyWelcomeWagon Some of us put together Litsy tips to help new Littens navigate the site. It's the link in my bio on my page in case you need it. Or if you prefer how-to videos, @chelleo put some together at the link in her bio. @LitsyWelcomeWagon 5mo
