The Steam Summer Sale started on Thursday! Any other gamers out there excited for this? For those of you who are unfamiliar, twice a year, Steam does some big sales where they discount games for as much as 75% or 80%. New games go on sale every day until June 30. It’s a good chance to pick up games that released a year or two ago for $40 – $60. There are new releases, too, although those discounts aren’t typically as big. I don’t think I’ll buy too much this time around, because I’ve bought so many games during their previous sales that I still haven’t played. (Hmmm…this sounds much like my book-buying habits.) I do think I’ll buy Far Cry 3, which is less than $8, and I’m keeping my eye out for a sale on Borderlands 2.
Blogging has made it pretty much impossible to play games the way I used to, but I expect to disappear from the blogosphere for a couple of weeks this fall when Dragon Age: Inquisition is released.
Adam by Ariel Schrag: I hadn’t heard of Adam unless I was asked to review it, and there were a lot of raves for the book, including from sites I read regularly, like Book Riot and Vulture. It’s about a guy who is attracted to a lesbian, and so he does the logical thing – he pretends to be transgender.

Take Me On by Katie McGarry: I’m not too sure about this book, but I’m going to give it a chance. The last two books in the series were pretty underwhelming, and I don’t know if this one will continue the trend. It’s also over 500 pages! I might give myself 50 pages or so to see if I like it.
Review: The Girl With All the Gifts by M.R. Carey: If you take away from this whole post, it is this –GO BUY THIS BOOK!
