toukokuu 1, 2021, 1:04 pm

Still reading The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley.

Finifhed Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo and started the next book in the series, Storm and Siege.

I'm back in the Grisha-verse, too. :) Just getting into Six of Crows.

I haven't gotten into the tv show yet.

>2 Niko: There are two story lines in the series that haven't occurred in the books as far as I've read them (I'm almost done with the second book). Just a little heads up in case such things matter to you.

toukokuu 4, 2021, 3:28 am

I'm in Tevanne, in Robert Jackson Bennett's Shorefall.

>3 seitherin: Have you read the Six of Crows books at all? I had heard that they included characters from these books in the series... that's part of why I picked it up now, to be familiar with this cast a bit before watching it.

I'm fairly laidback about adaptations, but I tend not to read the books after I've seen a video version of the material, so I figured I should get at least started with the book if I had any intention to. :)

I'm visiting the Lonely castle in the mirror.

toukokuu 4, 2021, 11:46 am

>5 Niko: Just started the 3rd book. I'm not fussy about whether I read a book first or watch a show first. In this case, the show inspired me to read the books.

Finished Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo. liked it next up is the 3rd book, Ruin and Rising.

toukokuu 4, 2021, 3:47 pm

I'm in Saint-Domingue and various places in Europe in A Radical Act of Free Magic.

toukokuu 4, 2021, 8:33 pm

I'm visiting Elantris.

toukokuu 6, 2021, 2:20 pm

finished Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo and added Six of Crows to my rotation.

toukokuu 7, 2021, 10:34 am

I'm taking one final trip to Elan in Percepliquis.

toukokuu 10, 2021, 9:08 am

Finished Six of Crows. I enjoyed it a lot. It benefits a lot from getting away from the "unexpected girl thrust into savior role" YA trope that the grisha books were so rooted in.

Taking a trip into Arthurian realms with To the Chapel Perilous. I've been wanting to read more of Naomi Mitchison's work since I loved Travel Light.

Spent the past week in Temerant, following Kvothe around as he tells his life story. It had been so long since I read The Name of the Wind that I went ahead and re-read it before delving into The Wise Man's Fear, and I'm glad I did. There is just so much detail, so it was good to have the refresher, plus it's such a wonderful story. I may even read them again someday, whenever The Doors of Stone finally gets released.

I finally got a chance to visit the library in the town I moved to over a year ago, and as is my usual wont, I immediately checked which Tanith Lee they had available, leading me to Teeth: Vampire Tales. I'm not usually a huge vampire fan, but I'm having a lot of fun with this collection.

toukokuu 11, 2021, 4:43 am

I'm about to learn more about drawing magic at the Witch Hat Atelier. Magic written/drawn, so in theory anyone can do. (Shh! Don't tell, it's a secret.) A manga recommendation from a friend.

toukokuu 17, 2021, 2:25 pm

finished Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo and started the next book, Crooked Kingdom. still enjoying the story.

toukokuu 17, 2021, 3:45 pm

>17 Julie_in_the_Library: I liked Crooked Kingdom even better than Six of Crows. I'd love to hear if you end up agreeing or not.

toukokuu 17, 2021, 4:04 pm

Visiting Australia as part of Temeraire's ongoing world tour of Napoleonic era travels in Tongues of Serpents.

toukokuu 18, 2021, 2:39 pm

>17 Julie_in_the_Library: about 20% done and things seem like they are going to get interesting. :D

toukokuu 18, 2021, 3:19 pm

Re-visiting Widdershins yet again reading Stormhaven.

toukokuu 19, 2021, 6:10 am

I just left NYC and An absolutely remarkable thing. This was a great read and I've already delved into the sequel, A beautifully foolish endeavor.

toukokuu 23, 2021, 1:08 pm

Engaging in some Sherlock Holmes-ian investigation, but in a sort of New Weird/Fallen London-ish sort of setting in The Affair of the Mysterious Letter.

toukokuu 24, 2021, 12:24 pm

finished Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo. really liked this one. started the next duology: King of Scars.

Just started Warbreaker, my second trip into the Cosmere after reading Mistborn earlier in the year.

I'm in The city of brass, Daevabad.

kesäkuu 25, 2021, 10:43 pm

I'm growing up with Polly in Fire and Hemlock.

kesäkuu 26, 2021, 8:25 pm

After a very satisfying climax in Son of a Trickster, I've stayed in Canada but moved over to Vancouver for Trickster Drift.

>24 Narilka: Enjoy the forest! That series is great. I think I found the second and third books just as enjoyable as the first one.

>32 merrystar: Ah! DWJ! Fire and Hemlock is one of the books by her that I've only read once. Maybe I should remedy that.

kesäkuu 27, 2021, 4:16 pm

>32 merrystar: one of my very favorite DWJ books; my copy is falling apart :)

kesäkuu 27, 2021, 9:08 pm

>33 Kanarthi: >34 curioussquared: It's been a couple of years since I last read it, but it was a favorite when I was younger. I'm enjoying it. :)
