I read some popular Light novels for the first time last year. Each one was incomplete in translation but I think they were pretty good.


I started reading Irregular in Magic High and it's a slice of life that would relate more to young people. The screen adaptation is more action oriented since they sweep over inner dialogues too easily.  The details don't interest me so much as the story itself anyway. Most of them are for informing the reader of just how plain looking, tall, mild mannered, and methodical the protagonist is right before during after he does some impossible feat.

Reading the Remembrance of Earth's Past series, which starts with the Three Body Problem.

Very cool fiction, actually translated from Chinese so even more impressive with some very interesting perspectives.

Just finished reading the Corwin Cycle of the Chronicles of Amber by Roger Zelazny.  One of my favorite fantasy series I've read in a while.  The magic system is really interesting (the core of it is that the primary characters have the ability to "create" anything or any world they can imagine by traveling to a parallel universe).  The plot itself was full twists and turns and inter-winding schemes.

Just started Marrow - part of the Great Ship series by Robert Reed. Fricking amazing. Absolutely love the world of the Great Ship. It captures so much of the mystery and romance of SciFi that just feels hard to find lately.

Is 'story' the words, the meaning, or the telling?

One of the books I need to read, too. Another one is Hyperion Cantos.

Currently, I'm reading Annihilation by JEFF VANDERMEER. Really good novel (it's the one that that new movie with Natalie Portman is based-on).
