Excellent choices. I think I'm reading the blowup doll book next.
Wizard of the Grove is probably my favorite book and I've read it like 9 times I don't know why.
That is all.
I've only read the Valor series (several times) They are great. I didn't realize she has so many fantasy novels. I'll have to check them out
Fifth quarter is a good one too. I just really like her style. I've read a couple others by her, but those stuck out the most.
I don't know about the other novels but I like the way she creates female characters that are strong and capable without making them men with boobs or damsels succeeding in the face of male domination.
Some books I've read recently:
First few books of the Dresden files series -- I'm liking the series so far, seems to be getting better as it goes on.
East of Eden -- I'm a fan of Steinbeck but had never found the time to read this. It was very good. Kind of a slow paced, relaxing book that managed to never be boring. Very intimate to the characters, who were written well.
World War Z -- Zombie apocalypse on a global scale. This book was fun and interesting, not the average zombie book.
Siddhartha -- I... didn't really like this one. Didn't connect with me as much as it seems to do with most people. Still worth the read.
I love the Dresden Files! It's definitely one of those series that gets better as it goes on. The author figures out what he wants the story to be. East of Eden is wonderful and one of my favorites.
I'm reading "What are You Looking at: The Surprising, Shocking and Sometimes Strange History of Modern Art" by Will Gompertz. It's really well done and far more engaging than the average non-fiction book.
My fiction book of the moment is, "Blood Rubies" by Michael McDowell." It's horror/gothic written by someone who can really write. I love all his books.
This is my most recent book. I am a huge fan of their messed up podcast.
Well one of my favorite book series is the Left Behind Series! I am currently trying to find a new good read, I enjoy romance novels, and mystery type books! Any suggestions would be appreciated!
Someone really needs to keep me away from the best of 2017 lists. My willpower meter is at zero
Same...my book wishlist has gotten about a mile longer in the past few weeks
Books, books, books! Found the Atwood and Rushdie on sale at B&N for 5 bucks a piece. Thanks @VGB for enabling my GoT and nerd addictions with the top one. Brb conjugating Dothraki.
I almost bought this too, but figured it would be cheaper on Amazon (it is). Think I'll order it now.
Book club read?
Just finished reading The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova. It's a pretty dense book but so good! A teeeeny bit disappointed with the ending, but oh well. Totally worth it. Now on to rereading the Ender's Game series by Orson Scott Card. I only remember the first book, so I'm pretty excited
Love The Historian!
I read it in high school but came across it in a thrift store for a dime, so I grabbed it. I loved it so much more this time around, I guess because I could actually keep up with the history and everything this time. Definitely one I'll read a third time.
