That's awesome! I'm so glad you're reading it, can't recommend it enough to people.
So glad you're enjoying it so much Stephen. Hope Winter does too!
I loved that book! It was like reading a Jane Austen fantasy novel.
This turned out to be a very, very good book, and Scorsese did an amazing job adapting it, but there were things that just don't come across in the film the way they do in the book--which is often the case, so no surprise there really. It is about Jesuit missionaries in Japan in the 1600's. I highly recommend it!
Finished Naomi Novik's Spinning Silver ... I liked it but it wasn't as good as Uprooted, in my opinion. Still a good read. I'm thinking of trying her Temeraire series ...
I started Spinning Silver yesterday! I haven't gotten far, but I like what I've read. It feels a lot like reading Uprooted, and I enjoyed that one a lot. I haven't read Temeraire either, the premise never really interested me.
I'm also reading Brimstone Angels by Erin M. Evans for my book club, and I started a Sandman reread last night.
Reading the Iron Druid series, book three. Started out feeling better than Dresden Files, now I'm not so sure anymore. Feels like quite the R-rated power fantasy of a hormonal teenager.
So pretty much exactly like Dresden, then?
I'm reading the Mistborn trilogy. Two down, one to go.
I'm reading Thunderhead, the second book in the Scythe series by Neal Shusterman. I really like these books
Started The Alloy of Law. I placed a hold for it, picked it up, and thought I’d check for the next two books in the series for grins. They were both there so I checked those out as well. Score! Now to see if I can get all three books read in the next three weeks. Hopefully no one places their own hold on them if I have to take more than that amount of time
I'm working on the Apprentice Adept Trilogy by Piers Anthony! On the second book, Blue Adept!
Polegnyn, I suspect you will not need that long to read them. Like all Sanderson books, they suck you in. And that trilogy is widely accepted as some of his best work
65 pages (my quota for a 5-day read) has definitely flown!
Started The Novice by Trudi Canavan a while back, and am still reading it.
Ended up moving onto The Neverending Story by Michael Ende. I loved the movie (and Atreyu ) as a kid, and it still holds a special place in my heart even now. And the cover of the book itself in the movie is just . Never read the book the movie was adapted from in all that time.
I never read the novel, but I adored the film.
Isn't it though?
Just started Sanderson's Steelheart.
That film was incredibly awful, and Michael Ende distanced himself explicitly from it. The book really is great, though. Will need to re-read it again. Oh, and the film covers just half the book.
Aw. I didn't think the movie was that bad, although I haven't seen it in a good twenty years, so my memory could well be rose-colored.
The film is bad. So are those miniseries.
