@Wander89 Yes, it's my first read :) I still didn't start, I will today. Tons of work isn't helping in reading.

It's a hefty read for the first time. I remember picking it up and putting it down after a few chapters but after I read Mistborn I went back to it and it's absolutely epic!

I haven't actually read that but I was looking to add it to my list!

@Wander89 A great and epic series. Tad always was one of my favourite authors, because of the world-building and almost grand storytelling.

If i wasn't already restarting Wheel of Time then I'd be into doing it, the series has always appealed to me

Also Starsight and Brian McClellan's Blood of Empire to conclude his trilogy this December.  And we got Pierce Brown's Dark Age recently.  This is the most stacked 6 months or so of fantasy releases that I can remember.

Also False Value by Ben Aaronovitch (Rivers of London book 8) coming out in November, which I just pre-ordered.

Also we will be getting a new Abercrombie this month so that’s another one to look forward to

Abercrombie had a tour event today at the Waterstones ~3 blocks from me, but unfortunately I didn't get back from a work trip until a couple hours after it ended.

got through the first 3 dresden files books, but theres a 4 person hold line for book 4 at the library.  which means i might have to wait 2 months before it gets to me.  in the meantime gonna try to reread the lightbringer series in prep for the final book.

I read this incredible book a few weeks ago. It's called Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo(?) Oh my storms it was AMAZING. It got me out of my weird reading slump. I HIGHLY recommend it.

I'm also slowly working my way through book five of tWoT.

I know this is a different read but the new Spider-Man from JJ and Henry Abrams is pretty great. The artwork is so flawed yet great.

Yeah. It made me cry so hard!

The only problem is that i have Six of Crows in paperback, and Crooked Kingdom in hardcover. With sprayed edges. 

But I'm going to start reading the Shadow and Bone trilogy soon. I just have to finish my MB re-read.

The Shadow and Bone trilogy was alright. I didn’t love it, but it does add some background to a few characters that show up in the duology.

They're making a TV show for the Grishaverse.

Totally read that as Shadows of Mordor and now I'm disappointed that it isn't the crossover I was expecting :huh:

Is no one else doing Gideon? We are really pushing it on Malazan board hardcore.

100 pgs in and really enjoying it so far.

Finished Storm Front. Would’ve finished much earlier but got a bit sidetracked around the middle so I didn’t get back to it for a couple weeks.

Pretty good book that was smart and funny (actually snorted at one point) so I’m definitely going to pick up the rest of the series.

Now that October has come back I’m going to do some horror themed reading. Going to start with Doctor Who: Scratchman and after that I’m going to read The Walking Dead comics I have.

Started the Wheel of Time series again. Read the first book. It read it 7 years ago. It was the first novel I had read and was amazed by it. It is good. I'm onto the second one. I have some issues with the depiction of women in the book. They are quite... emotional. And the whole 'MEN' thing. Still, I like it. Maybe I have too much expectations, or maybe it is because times have changed since then.

I also started (well, it is the incorrect word), Jane Austen's novel 'Pride and Prejudice'. I read it while waiting for my flight at airport (reached 7 hours earlier :P ), and went till chapter 36 in my first reading. I have read very few classics (Silas Manor, Brother's Karamazov, Great Expectations), but this one is quickly becoming my favourite. It is quite difficult to believe that Austen made such protagonists 200 years ago.

This is one of the series' biggest flaws, and it gets old fast.

I’ve heard mixed things about it but you’ve inspired me. I’m now number 8 on the hold list at my library. I will try it!
