The Best, The Worst, The Overrated from Lughnasadh to Samhain!

The Best:

0 - Geriausios

  • The Looting Machine by Tom Burgis: A great book on responsible and irresponsible consumerism, where it leads, and what can we do about it. Because we absolutely can, and it doesn’t mean you may not buy the thing you want but don’t need per say.
    Nonfiction | Review
  • The Henchmen of Zenda by K.J. Charles: A book that reminded me how great the adventure genre is. My next year’s goal is to find more adventure books.
    Adventure | Review
  • Redemption’s Blade by Adrian Tchaikovsky: A book on what happens after the great evil is vanquished, the same one for which many nations united and tossed their lot into same kettle. What happens when you need to divide things back up, and go home?
    High Fantasy | Review
  • The Borgias by G.J. Meyer: A great book on a very prominent family. How did they came to be what they are, what made their name so notorious and known, and how it all went down. Reminded me of teenage years where I’d seek out information on this family on my own. Or the good old Assassin’s Creed games with Ezio.
    History | Review
  • The Hero of Ages by Brandon Sanderson: An unbelievable net cast over a whole world, a very complex, but superbly interesting high fantasy. It’s colossal and amazing.
    High Fantasy | Review
  • American Kingpin by Nick Bilton: A very fine book on Dark Web and the most notorious market place in it, the Silkroad. And the man who created it.
    Nonfiction | Review
  • Dead Jack by James Aquilone: James Aquilone was a discovery for me, and I will sure read more of their books. Dead Jack was a great dark humor book, just the way I like my dead rotting skeleton private eyes.
    Dark Humor | Review

The Worst:

  • The Last Hellfighter by Thomas S. Flowers: A poor retelling of Dracula. Dull and uneventful.
    Horror | Review
  • The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa: A world where vampires rule, where vampirism gift has mutated to create more mindless monsters than actual vampires, and where humans are like cattle. But cattle with hope and dreams of utopia, one ruled by co… by humans.
    Vampires | Review
  • Midnight in a Perfect World by Ambrose Ibsen: A tale of a Lovecraftian thing handing humans a recipe for a drug that makes them fall into its world, where it can build a ladder out of its prison. Humans are great mortar in the hands of the gods. Poorly executed idea.
    Horror | Review
  • The Mark by Lee Mountford: Another great poorly written tale of a… Well, that’s the best part, so I won’t spoil. But in general, the book is full of unnatural dialogues, strange shortage of logic, and very one-way plot.
    Horror | Review

The Overrated:

the secret diary of laura palmer jennifer lynch twin peaks

  • The Secret Diary of Laura Palmer by Jennifer Lynch: It’s hard for me to accept this is an actual demon attack, where a child clearly is fighting to supress memories of actual assaults, molestation, and now, as a teenager, snorts cocaine all the time. She’s messed up, by human beings. What was the demon for even?
