Pretty sure I wont get any more reading done this month, so here are the books I did manage to get finished :) 2 more to read to meet my goal of 80 books read this year.
Ancillary Justice by Ann Leckie
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Really enjoyable sci-fi, enough of a mystery to what is going on to keep a person guessing and really interesting characters. The he/she pronoun use was a little confusing at first, and I took a few chapters to get use to it.
The Maze Runner by James Dashner
My rating: 1 of 5 stars
boring and full of so many one dimensional characters, very predictable ending :/ Glad I borrowed it from the library and didn't wast money on it
The Long Mars by Terry Pratchett
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I would honestly only give this 2.5 stars because it is pretty boring and just a redo of the first book (with Mars added in) :/ What was an interesting idea, just gets boring after awhile when you don't do much with it but jump around different places. If the characters were a little more interesting I don't think I would have been that bored, but its sad when I find the most interesting character a fake feline. I really really still like the premise behind the books, so many possible worlds to explore, so many things that could happen, I just don't feel much is being done with the idea.
The Long War by Terry Pratchett
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I still enjoyed the book, but so much more could have been done with all the different worlds.

And onto the part I am dreading messing up. The wing feathers, a couple dozen maybe?
Decided to show an image of the plate over the photo so people will get a better idea of how I work when etching and see exactly how many feathers I have to etch. The black paper makes it easier to see details in bright light on the plate.

This is supposed to be one of the Tripods with its heatray with people running away in the forest. For my first attempt, I don't think I did too bad. Not sure if I could cut up any more books to try again tho lol
John wired up the light for me since my hands are no way steady enough to use a hot soldering gun :p
The blonde kid was my best friend at the time until we moved away. In this day and age with so much stuff online you would think it would be easy to find a person, but nope. Can't find her anywhere, might have gotten married and changed her name, will have to see if I can find one of her brothers...unless they've changed their last name too. Weird that I want too find these people? Probably a bit, but the whole family was very close with ours until we lost contact moving around so much.
