Dune is a must read in my opinion. I'll say you my be tempted to continue on with the series and some of it is good past Dune but honestly if you are reading it for the first time I would stop after Dune.

it was fine.  I enjoyed it enough when I read it, but wasn't particularly interested in rereading it.

Honestly, the world building is incredible. Very, very in depth and interesting, like I’ve been reading mostly about politics in the book but I’m enjoying it

AGH! I thought you were Fadran! I would have just asked you in person if I had know it was you Truthless :P. That’s cool though!

Man that book was a complete disappointment and I was hyped for it. Felt the same way about Andy Weir's second book after The Martin.

I finished Small Favor. That was one of the best Dresden books so far.

Good Stuff, since Monday I re-read Peace Talks and destroyed Battle Ground. 

I'm guessing this is your first time through DF? In my opinion Turn Coat and Changes are the best books in the series. They are the next two after Small Favor. Enjoy!

It is indeed my first time. I've heard that Changes is amazing, haven't heard anything about Turn Coat. Changes and Dead Beat are, like, the only ones I had heard anything about before going in, and I heard they were both great.

on my library's wait list for Battle Ground.  got in earlier for that than I did for Peace Talks earlier this year, but i'm still expecting to wait for over a month unless the library increases the number of copies.  for some reason, the people with holds seem to take close to their full 2 weeks on these books, even though they can reasonably finished in a day or two.

did, but -- and this may be the only thing I've said this about thus far -- I thought the movie was better. -_- (Yeah, yeah, I know. Blasphemy, sacrilege, shun the nonbeliever! and all that. Sue me. :P)

I actually really liked Artemis. Maybe it helped that there was no hype for me: the first I heard of it was seeing it on the shelf. I promptly bought it and loved it.

That’s fair. The Martian is a special book for me because it was the last one my dad and I read before he passed away. I probably had unrealistic expectations for Artemis but my main complaint was how he wrote a female protagonist. Some authors are really good at writing characters of the opposite sex but I felt like Andy Weir really missed the mark on this and it was hard for me to get past.

I can’t get Battle Ground till I go back to Houston as my BAM is missing it’s roof thanks to the hurricane.

Cant get much reading or game time in with all this clean up consuming my days and nights but I’m enjoying WH40K book.

As for Dune I strongly disagree to stop at bk 1. Go to bk 6. Amazing stuff.

I will sue you! C‘mon. Jk. The movie is great, but compared to the book. . .  I don’t like it as much.

Well, I just reread all of the Sanderson books I have at home, and now I'm going to reread all of my RPs! :) Um, I've really been enjoying some Traci Hunter Abramson action romance novels.

Reading Heavens River the 4th Bobiverse book and really enjoying it. Especially since the author worked in a reference to Expeditionary Force another sci-fi series I like.

I’m listening to the Hero of Ages right now, and I gotta say, I love spook’s accent in it. It’s pretty cool.

The true great boss fight of Small Favor: Nope, I'm dumb, this is from Death Masks as @aneonfoxtribute said.

 

Satellite vs. Ortega

Oh neat I got another Dresden spoiler. It probably ties in to the other spoiler I got. Idk which book this is in, but apparently 

Spoiler

Molly becomes the Winter Lady. And that explains why Dresden would ever become the Winter Knight.

Who is generally considered the best villain in Dresden?

I see more love for Nicodemus than anyone else.

Now I don't necessarily agree, and I won't get into why because of spoilers.  Not sure who I would say is the best villain.  Most of the best characters are on the good side.
