  1. Fight and Flight. I really enjoyed the first two books of Meyer’s Magic 2.0 series, and I still need to read the third. Fun reads.

  2. I plan to start “The Girl in the Tower” when my holiday starts (in about an hour!!). I thoroughly enjoyed “The Bear and the Nightingale” and am looking forward to returning to that world.

  3. There are quite a few in this batch. Funny thing is. OK there’s a lot of funny things. I just spent an hour trying to learn the Chicago Manual of Style for a book review of Brust’s Vallista. But, two days ago I ordered Lock In (Kindle), and I am about 40% in. I need to be working on the review but I can’t because the other book is too much in my head. So, I do the bits I can towards writing. Funny thing is, I’ve enjoyed “Whatever” for a while but never read your other writing. I think I already got my gift under the tree.

    (Not appropriate for this thread. The Head On one was already closed out. No worries about deleting.)

  4. Hope Griffin Diaz – North Carolina – So, to borrow from a popular shirt, I love Jesus but I cuss a little. Well, a lot. In fact, I just don't believe Jesus really gives a shit about the word fuck. He does care if you say f you or go f yourself. But a general adjective? Nah. I am married to the love of my life, Louie (aka Luis) and have an adult child, Christy. My mum, Nancy, is still with us and active in our lives. I love to read, I fancy myself an amateur gardener, I am owned by a large black purr machine maine coon cat named Samwise aka #SamSam and a Border Collie/Australian Cattle dog mix named Daisy. I knit. I craft. I sew. These are at my leisure and are hobbies. I don't take commissions nor do I do alterations. I'm an aspiring human being. I battle several mental illnesses including depression, major panic disorder, agoraphobia, germaphobia, claustrophobia, and some other assorted illnesses. I also have fibromyalgia and have had numerous traumatic brain injuries (into the double digits now). I am not able to drive at night. I don't know where this blog is going ... if anywhere.

    The Girl in the Tower was wonderful if you like non-traditional Western narratives.

  6. Ooh nice, new Janny Wurts. That took a long time between books!
    The books in this series are way too … intensely written, with a nighttime stroll through a forest given the same weight and intensity as an epic battle for the faith of the universe, but despite that unrelenting intensity, I’ve slogged my way through them all so far (and enjoyed a whole lot of it in between the bad), so with this supposedly being the penultimate book, I’m damned well going to see it to its conclusion, dagnabbit!

  7. “Hymn”. I was just getting into Ken Scholes’ “Hymns of Isaac” saga and got distracted. Need to read “Antiphonal” and “Requiem” first.

  8. RE Lisahertel “I hope the fix the typo on the spine of Susan Casper’s book.”

    Maybe it’s a plug for the Society for Creative Anachronism? ;-)
