“Hands-on Rust: Effective Learning through 2D Game Development and Play”

What I’m reading

“The Well of Ascension”, Brandon Sanderson (audiobook). Book 2 of the Mistborn Saga.

“Sleeping Giants”, Sylvain Neuvel (audiobook). SciFi that centers around discovering pieces of a giant robot told via a series of interviews. Works well as a full cast audiobook, similar in structure to Max Brooks’ “World War Z” and “Devolution”. I’ll be seeking out the later books in the series.

  • “The End of the World: Stories of the Apocalypse”, multiple authors. Mixed bag, which I guess is to be expected for an anthology like this.

  • “The Sentinel”, Lee Child and Andrew Child.

In progress:

  • “Winterborne Home for Mayhem and Mystery”, Ally Carter.
  • “The Hero of Ages”, Brandon Sanderson (audiobook).
  • “Digger Unearthed: The Complete Tenth Anniversary Collection”, Ursula Vernon.
  • “Mapping the Interior”, Stephen Graham Jones.
