    It's May 2020: What fantasy book are you reading?

    I've been working remotely since the start, while my wife is a doctor and needs to go to the practice/hospital each day to see her patients (but less than usual). I already had the possibility to work from home two days a week before, but I practically never used it. As I always need to leave...

    It's May 2020: What fantasy book are you reading?

    I started Harry Potter and The Order Of The Phoenix more than a month ago and I'm still only halfway. It's not that I don't like it ... but I'm just busy with other stuff. I've been watching a lot of Netflix with my wife and I'm doing lots of sport (running). Now that my achilles heel injury is...

    I have the same feeling about First Law, even so much that I wasn't inclined to try Abercrombie again. Maybe I should give him another try with BSC

    The 4th book is expected for September 2020, so maybe he is on the better hand but still 7 years between book 3 and 4

    I'm still reading 'The End Of All Things' from @ABatch I had some trouble getting into it as it's been some time since I read book 4. But that changed after some time and I'm now fully enjoying this book. Over 50% by now

    Sure, I also wrote a review for the previous books, so I'll do it for this one as well ;) I haven't progressed very far though, only 21% into the book

    I've started 'The End of All Things' , the final book in the Immortal Treachery series from @ABatch It's been some time since I read the other books and it seems I only have some vague memories of the first few books. Anyone who can give some general outlines of the first books? Just to help...

    What Movie or TV show are you watching?

    I've been watching it, I'm on episode 7 now (8 in total for S1). I'd say it's decent so far and it's getting better as the season continues.

    It's December 2019: What fantasy book are you reading?

    My reading has been down a little in 2019; I only read 13 books. I don't have as much time anymore as I used to and what didn't help either was a reading slump at the start of the year. It was a struggle for me to finish the Three Body Problem series. It's not that I outright hated it, but it...

    It's February 2019: What fantasy book are you reading?

    I haven’t been reading a lot lately. 2018 has been a dissappointing year for my reading; I struggled a lot to finish some series/books. I’m currently more focused on sports; I’ve been running a lot, about 40km each week so it takes a lot of time from my reading. Besides that I’m spending a lot...

    I didn't like him much either, but he really grew on me in the next books and has become one of my favourite characters in the series.

    2018 Reading Challenge - Discussion Thread

    It’s 6 books. I’m also reading it now in order to thick off that one in the challenge. I’m currently reading the last book and should finish it after the weekend. Honestly, this has been a very bumpy ride. Some of the books were decent but others were plain boring. Maybe it’s me and I’m just...
