I'm starting off March with Written in Red.

maaliskuu 2, 2020, 12:19 pm

Started The Arm of the Sphinx, second in the Books of Babel series by Josiah Bancroft.

maaliskuu 2, 2020, 3:33 pm

Still in Chicago with Harry Dresden. Now reading Blood Rites.

maaliskuu 4, 2020, 5:27 pm

Started on The Witcher series. Finished The Sword of Destiny and working on The Last Wish and The Blood of Elves.

I'm spending time with The queens of Innis Lear in this fantasy take on the Shakespeare play.

Finished Fire & Blood by George R. R. Martin. Just as dull as any history that spouts facts. No wonder it took me three months to finish it.

Added The Last Smile in Sunder City by Luke Arnold to my rotation.

It's back to alternate Victorian London with Changeless.

I'm in wintry Capharna near the beginning of Transformation by Carol Berg, loving it so far.

Finished up my time in Tortall with Mastiff. Loved it -- honestly I think it overtakes Alanna's quartet as my favorite Pierce series. Police procedurals are fun, and the character writing is top notch, if heartbreaking.

Now I'm learning about Druhástrana in the very witty and creepy Gingerbread.

Today I will be starting Fellside.

Just finished The Bonehunters, Book 6 of Malazan. A solid if uneven effort. Some plotlines just served to confuse me, and kind of trailed off. However, the good parts were really good! Two climaxes - an extremely intense battle in the first third of the book and a incredibly fast-paced ending. My favorites continue to be the Malazan Army/Marines (current AND former). I also liked how Tavore evolved as a character.

Just downloaded Book 7 Reaper's Gale.

Finished The Last Smile in Sunder City by Luke Arnold. It took a bit of getting used to the style but once I did, I really enjoyed the book. Looking forward to the next in the series coming out later this year.

Added The True Bastards by Jonathan French to my rotation.

I've just got back from a close relation of renaissance Italy with Guy Gavriel Kay in A brightness Long Ago. I did enjoy it, as I enjoy all Kay's work, but with this one I found plot and characters all feeling a bit samey. He seems to have several stock characters (wandering artist, wandering (female) Jewish healer, war leader) who crop up in his stories again and again.

maaliskuu 22, 2020, 1:34 pm

Today I'll be heading back to Westeros in Fire and Blood.

maaliskuu 22, 2020, 11:29 pm

In this fearful time, I've returned to the primary comfort reading of my life, and have started my zillionth re-reading of LOTR. In case I'm down to my last few books, I want those to be among them.

maaliskuu 23, 2020, 9:53 am

I am heading to school in Torpa, Russia for Vita Nostra.

maaliskuu 23, 2020, 7:32 pm

The city of TunFaire, in Glen Cook's Sweet Silver Blues

>14 Zambaco: I think I actually LOL'd while reading this book at the recurring character types. When I first finished it, I was fairly "meh" on it, but I've grown fonder over time. I think part of my fondness is that the core of the story - the nature of the central rivalry and the focus on various people in its orbit - reminded me most of Song for Arbonne, and that's my favorite Kay book.

>17 Narilka: ooh this is on my TBR and I am really looking forward to it. I hope you enjoy it!

I'm currently visiting Havenfall which has some great ideas and setting but is a bit too YA in the ways I don't enjoy.

maaliskuu 24, 2020, 4:30 pm

Added a re-read of Tigana by Guy Gavriel Kay to my rotation.

maaliskuu 25, 2020, 3:37 pm

Finished Nevernight by Jay Kristoff. Really enjoyed it. Added Godsgrave, the second book in the trilogy, to my rotation.

maaliskuu 25, 2020, 5:27 pm

Yeah, I loved his first works then they did feel like cut outs. So I haven't read him in a while,

maaliskuu 28, 2020, 9:01 am

Just finished The Blood of Elves which leaves you hanging with a wounded Witcher, a confused child of surprise and a sorceress with dubious intentions. Our book stores are closed due to our current plague so I can’t rush out for the next in the series.

maaliskuu 28, 2020, 10:19 am

I'm in need of a comfort read so started Pawn of Prophecy.

maaliskuu 29, 2020, 1:15 pm

Today I'm going to start The Queen of Blood.

maaliskuu 30, 2020, 7:22 am

I'm in the swamps of Arkansas with The boatman's daughter.

maaliskuu 30, 2020, 6:18 pm

Back to the world of the Others with Murder of Crows.

maaliskuu 30, 2020, 8:37 pm

Does Dune's Arrakis count as fantasy? ;)
