Discussion in 'Non-WOT - Literature and Fiction' started by Aduiavas Ida, Jan 27, 2018.
Finished a reread of Outlander and now on Dragonfly in Amber.
I'm reading 'The shadow of what was lost' by James Islington. Apparently he is inspired by Jordan and Sanderson and I can definitely see it. It's a pretty good read.
Just finished reading Dan Simmons’ The Fall of Hyperion and, in preparation for my upcoming trip to Russia, have begun Dostoevsky’s The Idiot
I really like these books. The last one comes out in December, I think.
I am reading... The Thief by Megan Whalen Turner, Mr. Churchill's Secretary by Susan Elia MacNeal (hey my name!), A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens, and Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen. Why do I start so many books at one time?
Eye of the World
Tweak by Nic Scheff
Always Look on the Bright Side of Life by Eric Idle
I'm currently reading a couple of different things. Variety is the spice of life.
-The Eye of the World
-The Divine Comedy
-Touched with Fire (Manic Depressive Illness and the Artistic Temperament)
I'm reading Worm, a web series about people with super powers. Really well-written, really good action, nice characters, story, etc. Surprisingly good, considering the author wrote 1.6 million words in 2 years.
Almost done with it now. If you want superhero/supervillain stuff in prose, I really recommend it. I managed to get it converted to an ebook for easier reading.
I just picked up Among Others by Jo Walton. It won a Hugo award, so I was intrigued. So far it's very dark. But not in like a gritty edgy kind of Game of Thrones way. More in a grim, sad Jane Eyre way. It's formatted like a diary and contains so many references to other books that I might just build a reading list before I'm done with it.
Oh, I loved Among Others! It definitely added a lot of books to my to-read list. I also listened to the audiobook and the narrator did an amazing job. I really felt a connection with the main character.
I started a new series today, Lightbringer by Brent Weeks... the first three books arrived today, new for $6 each.
I plan to read the Licanius Trilogy after this one... maybe I should reverse that??!?! Now I don't know what to do...
I am listening to Doctor Sleep by Stephen King. I am really enjoying it so far, and I like Will Patton's narration.
I am reading The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon. I am enjoying this immensely.
Currently reading The Iron Tower Trilogy by Dennis McKerinin, as well as a reread of The Wheel. There are two other books in my reading pile as well, but i havent picked them up in a bit.
Doctor Sleep was so good! Looking forward to the movie I listened to the audiobook as well
I am listening to Wheel of Time now, on TSR.
Started "reading" (audiobook) A Little Hatred by Joe Abercrombie today. So hyped!
I am just about to start Golden Witchbreed by Mary Gentle which was suggested by @Arisaema Draconis I look forward to reading it
I'm currently reading the Centenal Cycle trilogyby Malka Older. After that I have an Alien omnibus to read
I started The Last Wish, which is the first book to feature Geralt of Rivia, last night.
I just got going on that book, too.
I hope you guys enjoy that book. I read all of the Witcher books years ago and loved them.
