    Scott Lynch's Gentlemen Bastards series

    After being recommended The Lies of Locke Lamora a dozen times on these forums I bought it. I finally got around to reading it and finished it about two weeks ago and I loved every moment of it. For my birthday, my husband surprised me with Red Seas Under Red Skies and The Republic of Thieves. I...

    Audiobook voices

    Whyyyyyyyyy?!?! Okay to clarify...as part of the challenge, I started looking for audiobooks and found that I am extremely turned off by the reader's voices and their pronunciations. Does anyone else feel this way? Also, and I hope no one takes offense, but why are all the fantasy books read in...

    Ever tell someone you like fantasy and...

    They think you mean "sexy time" fantasy aka erotica? This happens a lot for me. I'm thinking maybe it's because I'm speaking to older people who don't read often. Who think all romance novels are soft core erotica. People who don't know fantasy is fantasy. It puts me in an awkward situation. I...

    Do you read more than one book at a time?

    I can't seem to do it. I know of several people who can juggle 3 books all at once. For me, its impossible. What about you guys?

    college lit assigned reading

    So I was wondering about the two books I have to read in my lit class... The Awakening and Fahrenheit 451. I've heard good things about F451 but never picked it up before. Are these books any good? Or will I be forcing myself to get through them? My college offers lit honors with fantasy and...

    Is self/paid promotion common here

    You all know I'm pretty new so I'm just wondering how common it is for these people to come to this thread and post seemingly random book promotions. They could at least pretend a little better. For example "hi guys I'm new here and I joined because I'm looking for something good to read. I...

    Better to read first then film or vice versa?

    We all know books are almost always better than their adapted counterparts but I find when I've read something belts watching it I'm almost always disappointed. Actors, changes, all of it. I find I'd rather watch first then read because I don't scrutinize the book. Very rarely there is that one...
