  1. I. AM. EXCITED. I mean yeah, we'll probably only see it in like 2-3 years, but YASSS
  2. I really prefer the publication order, for most things. The ICE books do have their own internal storyline that I think will get lost when it's broken up with the main ten book series. But I suppose I shouldn't knock it until I try it! My school district is closed until 4/14 at least so I might start up a reread.
  3. Nice!
  4. 100% honesty, I did the 30 sec skip forward during the parts that were super philosophical and came back during the next POV. Really helpful. Most of FoL is pretty neat, gets into the origin of Divers and there's this cool parallel with the Shake and what happens in Crippled God/Dust of Dreams.
  5. Oh good. XD I was worried there for a minute.
  6. Oh man. Lightbringer was the best thing I listened to, last year. It's AMAZING. You haven't listened to the first four? Weeks is also really aware of how popular the series is on audio and worked closely with Simon Vance to make sure it was the best it could be.
  7. Oh man. I need to finish my second listen before I really pick a favorite, but probably Turn Coat, or Changes. Quotes? So many. Any time he and Marcone are talking. I recently read Blood Rites so when he called Trixie a , self deluded, half witted schlong jockey" was pretty amazing. I found "Parkour!" at the end of Skin Game a particularly salient moment. I gotta start keeping a list.
  8. Y'ALL it's been a dime since I've been around. I'm currently rereading The Dresden Files because anybody who knows me could have predicted I'd be obsessed with it and start it over as soon as I finished it, but I'm getting that Malazan Itch. Unrelated: I posted this question in a Malazan Facebook group, but who are the best/worst dads in Malazan? Ones who actually had some presence in the books and aren't like, a mysterious backstory, and spent time as a parental figure.
  9. Finished KR, and I have to say, I really enjoyed it. Esslemont's style is very different from Erikson's, but in this context it works. I thought that the way some of the side character arcs ended was a bit abrupt, but I'm still digging this prequel stuff. Spoiler below.
  10. Ringil being gay AF was my favorite part, actually. I loved it.
  11. I am intermittently listening to DF as the titles become available from my library. I'm on a five week wait for book 8, I think. I listened to Richard K. Morgan's Land Fit for Heroes (which was HELLA GOOD), then the newish Darkness Within trilogy by JD Franx, which was actually amazing, and I can't wait for more of it. He's a Canadian author and it looks to be the first three of a larger saga spanning years, like Robertson's Cycle of Arawn/Galand. So, six Vance books back to back.
  12. FINALLY started Kellanved's Reach. After six books of Simon Vance, hearing John Banks is refreshing!
  13. I totally forgot about that! I've only read FoD once. It's entirely possible the quote or variations of it show up more often than three times, even.
  14. @Ammanas RG and DoD. It's one of my favorite of the opening poems.
  15. FIGHT ME (I'm always too tired to read actual books these days; I fall asleep.)
