    I've read all of WoT at least 3 times through and love it. Brandon Sanderson did an awesome job getting it finished, although he uses the word "tempest" entirely too often.

    Rothfuss has an awesome shorty story in Martin's collection, Rogues, called The Lightning Tree. Lots of other great stories in that sucker, too.

    I've been on a 1632-verse kick lately. Eric Flint is heavy handed with the symbolism sometimes, but it's a good read.
    Please accept my resignation. I have no interest in being a member of any club that would take me as a member.

    I've read some interesting books lately.

    Nnedi Okorafor, Lagoon - aliens land and ask a few members of the local populace to "take me to your leader" - except the landing place is the polluted lagoon around which the city of Lagos is built, and the leader in question is the President of Nigeria.

    Ellen Oh, Prophecy - YA fantasy about a prophesied hero who will save his people at their worst hour based on Korean history and legend - with a strong female protagonist

    Nalo Hopkinson, The Chaos - YA fantasy about identity and self-discovery - but it is also a full-tilt boogie through chaotic transformations worthy of a serious dose of magic mushrooms, and the myths and folklore of more places and peoples than I could count

    Keri Hulme, The Bone People - Booker Award winning novel about damage and redemption, at once the story of three broken people who must be stripped down to the bone before they can begin to heal, and also a vision of the need for a cultural renewal for New Zealand's peoples that brings white and Maori together. The author herself is of mixed white and Maori heritage

    Anyone else read anything interesting lately?

    I Am Charlotte Simmons by Tom Wolfe

    Incredibly depressing in terms of plot, but beautiful descriptions of the self-destructive behaviors that occur on college campuses and character development that clarifies why I dislike so many of my classmates on principle.

    Which makes me seem like a d bag, but... read it

    For anyone who cares - i've been first busy and then sick for the last two months, but I am going to inflict the remaining posts about women in sff on you, just not quite sure when. I'm sure you are all overjoyed to hear this.

    I hope I will be forgiven for this double post, but I came across a list of 19 recommended sff books by women of colour, and thought it would be of intetest to some of the peoole who read this thread from time to time.

    http://www.buzzfeed.com/akpatel462/1...ovels-by-15qst

    I've read six of the books on this list, and have read other works by three more of the authors mentioned, and if the books I have not read are of similar quality to those I have, there is much excellent reading here.

    I'm halfway through The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman and I have a feeling this will be my second gateway into watered down magical realism.

    Episode 13 has been released too. Waiting on Episode 14.

    Also, Leviathan Wakes is one of the best Sci Fi Suspense books you'll read in a long time. They're making it into a TV show now.

    Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe.

    Made me smile, laugh, and cry. One of my new favorite books.

    That's just the first book of the series, and it sustains itself very well. I'm on book 4 of it now - Cibola Burn - and book 5 is either out or about to come out.
    I've also been burning through a lot of Brandon Sanderson's work. I think he's a very good author - well thought out magic mythologies in each book. He could also give some lessons to GRRM on how to produce regularly.

    Perks of Being a Wallflower was really good, better than the movie. Afterwards I read More Than This which is really good.

    Now I'm reading The 5th Wave, which is about a realistic alien invasion, where we don't stand a chance. It's getting made into a movie.

    I also think I'm going to read all the books mentioned in The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

    Hello...So I'm in the middle of Robin Hobb's Liveship Traders series. There are many parallels that can be drawn between this series and Song of Fire and Ice, but this series wins in so many aspects.

    I'm reading Titus Livius' The History of Rome
    It's ancient, so if you enjoyed getting through works such as the Illiad, you may enjoy it. That said, it's pleasing if you enjoy history mixed in with a bit of lore. It also goes through a time when Rome was just frail settlement upon a hilly countryside, then there is internal strife, and external threats to the early Romans. Then there are these ancient heroic statements that can only somewhat be found in text written by ancient historians.

    “They sometimes besought him not to suffer them, who were descended from the Etrurians, and of the same blood and name, to live in exile and poverty; at other times they advised him not to let this commencing practice of expelling kings pass unpunished. That liberty has charms enough in itself; and unless kings defend their crowns with as much vigour as the people pursue their liberty, that the highest must be reduced to a level with the lowest; there will be nothing exalted, nothing distinguished above the rest; and hence there must be an end of regal government, the most beautiful institution both among gods and men.”


    Excerpt From: Livius, Titus. “The History of Rome, Books 01 to 08.” iBooks.

    I've been trying to read the Icefire Trilogy because someone mentioned they really liked it but so far I can't get into it. Just doesn't have characters that are at all likable or even hate-able. very mediocre.

    This might have been covered earlier, apologies if I'm rehashing. I just read Neal Stepheson's latest book, Sevenes. I thought it was one of the worst books I've ever read and wondered if it was published as a hoax to see how many of his fans would gush about it.

    I just finished re-reading one of my favorite books of all time: Niebla by Miguel de Unamuno. Worth a read if you know Spanish or find a translation.

    I have a half dozen books at home, one at work, and haven't read squat in months. I just don't have the energy, stressed out far too much, to pick one up. Feh.

    I read Seveneves. The first part wasn't too bad, although quite grim. The second half.... Didn't work for me at all.

    This is when I pick up a random trashy romance [or insert genre] novel and skim through it--no expectations of enjoyment, not mentally taxing. I can skip through a lot of stupid parts and fill in the blanks, and finish the book within an hour or so to relieve some stress. When you expect to get something out of a book it automatically requires more effort to read.

    I do this with mysyery novels, especially historical mysteries.

    I just don't have the energy to get invested. I have a Stephen King book that I could race through. I am so painfully familiar with his work that it would be like ice skating. I just ... can't.
    Too many stressors in life the past... year? I work, watch tv, play with my kids, sleep and start it over the next day.

    I guess I've been making up for lost time. I read the latest book in The Expanse series and it was freaking awesome. Had me by the short hairs from beginning to end and I have no idea where the cable channel will find the money to do the CGI this sucker will demand.
    I read Sanderson's Calamity , the finale of the Reckoners trilogy. Then read Stephen King's Finder's Keepers, second book of his horror trilogy and just yesterday finished the Temeraire series. If you have not read Naomi Novic's Temeraire series, you're in for a treat. Wonderful historic fantasy/fiction with one of the best dragons ever put to paper. The series is now complete, so if you're one of those who wait til the series is done cuz Patrick and George burned you, this one is safe.

    I just finished Red Rising. Very amateurish writing, and very strong sexism and a few homophobic remarks.

    And a lot of justified ****.

    Would not recommend. Not really sure how it got such raving reviews, honestly.

    Even without the **** and sexism, it was just okay.

    I keep thinking they are related. Both authors also have beards large enough to home a family of pheasants.

    He was in the post (it said "Patrick and George").

    I was thinking Patrick and George were characters in Patrick's trilogy.

    Really? Every review I've read said it was basically the imagination of someone who knows less than nothing of the BDSM scene writing a book about it.

    I don't think she was reading it for instructions.
