    2017 Reading Resolutions

    This. :D I'm still currently doing it now too (university), so it's actually a total surprise already when I told my friends that I spent an hour reading novels everyday. They were like, "What, seriously? You must be joking. We know you are studying 24/7 dude."

    Have you ever intentionally avoided reading a top 10 fantasy book? If so why?

    True, I also wonder for the qualities in the storyline of ASOIF, things does seemed a little too distended in the most recent book already. As for the Dresden Fiiles, I'm glad! Thus, I can soon happily jump into the first and second book I have just bought. :)

    Have you ever intentionally avoided reading a top 10 fantasy book? If so why?

    I guess... Personally, I'm still not a fan of extended plot points though, it's like those TV shows that kept on extending to the tenth season when there is no longer any plot points to play about (and despite the words of the ardent fans, it's still a thing that the characters kept doing the...

    Have you ever intentionally avoided reading a top 10 fantasy book? If so why?

    That Aegon Targeyean storyline though... Reading through The Dance of Dragons, I constantly wondered on the reason George R. R. Martin would introduce an entirely new character this late in the books, and have him be the person who invaded Westeroes. It doesn't even make sense at that point, and...

    Have you ever intentionally avoided reading a top 10 fantasy book? If so why?

    True, the Ned moment was pretty shocking. ASOIF was one of my first serious fantasy novels, and I was pretty shocked at the death of a main character. I even search on the internet whether he'll make a return, but alas. From that moment on Martin had pretty much had all of us ready for anyone's...

    Have you ever intentionally avoided reading a top 10 fantasy book? If so why?

    Book 2 and 3 are certainly my favorites, packed with action and the clashing of major forces. The plot twist at the Red Wedding also spice up things quite nicely too. Book 4 seemed quite to stall a bit for me (and there's no Tyrion or Jon POV, so that's a thing), and book 5 does seemed too...

    Let's face it: GRRM is never going to finish aSoIaF

    Reading the post I was like: Jurassic Park? Yup. Timeline? I think I've seen that one. Then- Westworld?! I'm a complete fan of the series! I heard that there had once been a movie version of it a long while ago, I guess this is the one?

    Let's face it: GRRM is never going to finish aSoIaF

    I had never heard about Michael Crichton before, but I often see books by John Grisham in the countries that I live in. That, alongside Dan Brown and James Patterson are what dominated over the crime/ mystery section of most bookstores in my country. (Although I don't actually read anything...

    Let's face it: GRRM is never going to finish aSoIaF

    The torment of readers who had already started on a book from an author who is taking an eternity to finish them.... It's even more ironic, that one of the books George R. R. Martin recommended for reading while waiting for his books to finish is Rothfuss's The Kingkiller Chronicles. Well played...

    Let's face it: GRRM is never going to finish aSoIaF

    It's the same for me. I only knew Patrick Rothfuss and Brandon Sanderson via some people mentioning them online (well on 9gag to be specific), and since then only had been sucked into the great expanse of fantasy authors. Before that I only knew the extremely popular authors like J. K. Rowling...

    I just bought...

    I just bought books 1, 2, and 3 of the Codex Alera series, thus combining with the last three books I already have, I now have the entire Codex Alera series at my reading disposal. :D Also bought the second book of the Dresden Files (since I have the first) Looking forward to reading them!

    What Movie or TV show are you watching?

    I've also recently saw the Wonder Woman movie (well it had been a few weeks, university had started and I hadn't seen anything since, so this counts), and it is the most wonderful DCEU movie up to date. I love the way that romance, humor, and the heroic spirit had been imbued into this film, and...

    The Dark Tower trailer

    I do look forward to the film though. (Well, I'm getting a few free movie tickets around the time the movie came out, so there's that.) I guess we are forced to wait and see if this will flop or soar.

    Let's face it: GRRM is never going to finish aSoIaF

    That's possible, although I'm not a native here myself. Back in my country, the only writers that I know of are pretty much JK Rowling, Tolkien, and George R. R. Martin. There are seriously not enough english books available there.

    Let's face it: GRRM is never going to finish aSoIaF

    True that. In the country I'm living in right now (Malaysia), I could find The Name of the Wind and The Wise Man's Fear only at one of the local brands of book stores, where as tons of books by Brandon Sanderson are available at pretty much every book store chain in the country.

    Name of the Wind

    Denna's part certainly puts me off at times. I felt seriously annoyed with her actions, despite whatever story/ past she had, it doesn't excuse all the terrible things she's doing to Kvothe. I do wish he'd just ignored her and let the woman be. And that reminds me, Kote somehow ends up not...

    I like *this* so recommend me.....

    @Peat Good action+ wizard in urban fantasy setting. I think I'm going to like the writings of Jim Butcher. ;) I haven't read Abercrombie yet, so I'm positively adding his name and David Gemmel's to my TBR list! (Although it's growing so large now it's threatening to collapse atop of me, haha)

    Worlds that stand out and stay with you!

    Anything written by Brandon Sanderson. That man is a true master of worldbuilding, indeed.
