Weekly Check-in #2 – Legendborn & Outriders

Hey everyone! I hope you’re having a wonderful day! I shouldn’t be this proud to post two weeks in a row but!! I have commitment issues!! So I feel like it’s okay if I am? *hides* I’m out of school this week and wow, I’ve been pandemic fine for so long that I hadn’t realized how much I needed this!

What am I currently reading?

I cannot believe that it took me so long to read Legendborn because y’all!! I’m LOVING IT and I’m just – so happy this book exists? The world-building is so interesting and the pacing perfection, I had to force myself to stop around 75% last night because it was way too late and I wanted to savor the ending. So many twists and turns, I adore it – I’m texting my friend Laura non-stop and it’s just 😭 Such a wonderful experience!

Most of all though, I’m here for Bree who is a fantastic character I will never forget. Her grief is a palpable thing and it feels so relatable and real, okay? It’s so rare I feel this way. I root so much for her that I don’t even mind (much) Golden Boy over there (he’s nice!!! but also annoys me so much sometimes!!!). Oh. And I’m basic, apparently, because Selwyn Kane won me over instantly but LISTEN. I CAN’T HELP IT OKAY? You can’t give me a character like him and not expect me to stan. It’s!!! Not done!!!

What’s next?

I’m trying to be better with my ARCs this time (back when I was blogging before, I ended… a bit overwhelmed 🙈) so I’m reading those three next. I’m so excited about them for utterly different reasons 😍 I mean : a Fantasy novel with a thief as a main character, a cozy sci-fi novella about a non-binary monk and a young adult contemporary novel I’ve heard so many great things about? Count me in!

What am I currently playing?

Thanks to last week’s update, I can finally play Outriders without the game crashing every damn minute and it’s so fun! The RPG stan in me loves that we can customize our character so much, and I’m having a great time with my pyromage.

I’ve tried different skills trees but the ash breaker one works best for me :

I’m still working on the endgame maps with my partner and my character’s style is all over the place (I’ll really have to change my stuff later, it looks so bad lol) but I really appreciate the way we can upgrade our equipment even after reaching the world’s max level.

That’s it for this week! I hope you’re doing great! What are you reading? Have you started any good game? Tell me all about it in the comments!

  1. Enjoy your reading! A Psalm of the Wild Built sounds so good!
    I’m currently reading Children of Ruin and listening to The Golden Fool!


  2. I’m starting Legendborn this week, and am really looking forward to it! I’m also anticipating A Psalm of the Wild Built.

    I’m glad you can play your game without it crashing now! Yay!
