Welcome! I'm so glad you decided to set up a thread an to join in on the TIOLI Challenges!

I never really tracked my reading before I joined LT - I found it shocking surprising just how many books I read in a year.

I see we read many of the same authors - in fact I just joined you and Morphy in reading Smoke Bitten. It wasn't my favorite of the series, but I devoured it any way.

abr. 23, 2020, 7:29 pm

I like anything by Patricia Briggs!

abr. 23, 2020, 7:38 pm

>5 SilverWolf28: Me, too. I think I've finally gotten to all of her early fantasy - I need to double check.

What are you reading now?

abr. 23, 2020, 7:52 pm

I just finished Bears Behaving Badly and now I'm deciding what to read next.

Am I right in guessing that you've read the Honor Harrington books before and you're doing a series reread? I've read the first 10 or so many times - I forget which book it is that I tend to stop at....

maig 2, 2020, 7:31 am

>20 Dejah_Thoris: Yes. I read them a year or two ago and am rereading now.

Wiki Reads

These are the books I will be reading for various wiki challenges. Let me know if you spot any shared reads.

Deathless Divide
Boundary + sequels?
We Are Legion (We Are Bob) + sequels?
Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children
The Man From the Broken Hills

maig 2, 2020, 5:19 pm

>22 SilverWolf28: Hmmm.... By the Sword, Clean Sweep, and Down Among the Sticks and Bones I've all read/reread fairly recently. Getting to Friday depends on me getting to The Number of the Beast first. I'm inclined to reread The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet and Ship of Magic is a very real possibility. How much reading I get done this month will depend on how long I remain furloughed, I suppose.

maig 16, 2020, 8:30 pm

I just finished the Bobiverse series - We Are Legion (We Are Bob), For We Are Many, All These Worlds, and really, really liked it.

maig 16, 2020, 9:52 pm

>24 SilverWolf28: They are fun books - they're a hoot!

Editat: maig 17, 2020, 2:41 pm

Yep, i loved them too!

Editat: maig 17, 2020, 8:32 pm

>25 Dejah_Thoris:, >26 drneutron: Are there going to be any more bobiverse books anytime soon?

maig 17, 2020, 8:49 pm

Good to see you settling into the group so nicely.

Don't be shy to visit any of the other threads too, I'm sure all will make you most welcome.

maig 17, 2020, 10:26 pm

>27 SilverWolf28: I've wondered about that, but I don't get the impression that there will be more. Dennis E. Taylor has written a few more books, though, which I keep meaning to try.

maig 18, 2020, 7:39 pm

I don’t think so either, but yeah, I want to try more of his stuff.

Editat: maig 18, 2020, 8:17 pm

There is going to be another Bobiverse book!! Heaven's River (touchstone is not correct). Dennis E. Taylor

maig 18, 2020, 11:19 pm

>31 SilverWolf28: Very cool! September for the Audible version, January for ebook and print - that'll be fun!

maig 19, 2020, 9:21 am

Well, great!

maig 19, 2020, 10:43 am

>22 SilverWolf28: And I wanted to let you know that I took a deep breath and started Ship of Magic just before I went to bed last night. I find it hard to believe that I've never read any Robin Hobb before, so thanks for the nudge.

Editat: maig 19, 2020, 11:22 pm

>34 Dejah_Thoris: I'm glad you did! Actually you're nudging me to start reading Ship of Magic. (I got very distracted with other books.) Now we can share it on the TIOLI and 2020 category challenges.

maig 19, 2020, 11:36 pm

>35 SilverWolf28: Excellent! Honestly, I doubt I would have picked it up this month without the prospect of the shared read - shared reads often motivate me to read things I might otherwise pass on.

I'm about 200 pages in - far enough to be caught up in what's happening.

maig 20, 2020, 10:41 pm

>35 SilverWolf28: So I finished Ship of Magic - and ended up liking it. I imagine I'll read the other two books sooner rather than later, so if your interested in continuing, let me know! I'm always up for the shared read.

Editat: maig 21, 2020, 2:40 pm

I'm just starting Ship of Magic, I should probably be able to finish it this weekend. I won't be able to read the sequels this month, but we could read them in June.

maig 21, 2020, 3:26 pm

>38 SilverWolf28: That should work. There are so many characters I want to be sure to read it before too long - I'd hate to forget anything!

Everyone says this trilogy is less dark than here first, the Farseer books. The Liveship books may be all I read by Robin Hobb - she's tough on her characters.

Editat: maig 22, 2020, 8:37 am

I really liked Assassin's Apprentice which is the first book of that series, but I haven't yet read the sequels.

maig 24, 2020, 8:51 pm

Hope you enjoy your long weekend.

maig 24, 2020, 10:41 pm

>41 PaulCranswick: Thanks! I hope you do too.

Editat: maig 25, 2020, 12:27 am

I just looked at your list up top - you've been reading KJ Charles, too! I see you've read a few that I haven't - I'll try to join you.

And I really didn't intend to, but I'm reread the Innkeeper Chronicles, so we'll have a shared read for those, too.

ETA: I've got A Fashionable Indulgence in #2, and A Gentleman's Position in #19. Also - have you seen the free short stories on her site?

Editat: maig 25, 2020, 8:17 am

No I hadn't seen the short stories. I'll look for them now.

Editat: maig 25, 2020, 11:10 am

>44 SilverWolf28: Sorry - what was I thinking? I should have included the link:

Editat: maig 27, 2020, 8:50 pm

>39 Dejah_Thoris: I'm not going to be able to finish Ship of Magic anytime soon. I just can't concentrate on it. So you can go ahead and read the sequels whenever you want. It will probably be fall or winter before I'll try again. (By then hopefully the garden won't be so intense and stressful.)

maig 27, 2020, 9:12 pm

>46 SilverWolf28: No problem - it did require concentration, which is one reason I read it so quickly. I do better that way, sometimes.

And I'm sorry your garden is stressful! I garden, too. I'd love to see some pictures. :)

I almost forgot - I finished An Unseen Attraction - do you have a preference for which Challenge we put it in? For me it'll work in #2 (foreign author) or #18 (book I won't be keeping - I borrowed it via Audible Escapes). You can always have a shared read (unless otherwise specified) as long as the first person who posts the book meets the challenge requirements. I'm working on the other two in the trilogy as well.

Let me know!

maig 27, 2020, 9:16 pm

Either one works fine for me. (I live about three hours northwest of you.)

Editat: maig 27, 2020, 9:23 pm

Seriously? Alabama or Tennessee? Or just barely in GA?

ETA: and the June TIOLI tread is up!

>49 Dejah_Thoris: Tennessee.
I'm about to post my challenge! :)

maig 27, 2020, 10:20 pm

Excellent! I can't wait to see it.

maig 27, 2020, 10:47 pm

It's challenge number 11!

maig 27, 2020, 11:08 pm

>52 SilverWolf28: Well that should be plenty popular! I've joined you for Grand Central Arena.

I'm usually slow to add too many books - this month in particular, because I'm not sure what my library access will be. But I've got Grand Central Arena on my Kindle!

maig 31, 2020, 8:22 pm

I did it - I fit in KJCharles' Sins of the City trilogy! Here's where I've placed the books - and some of the short stories that are free on her site:

Challenge #2
An Unsuitable Heir
The Ruin of Gabriel Ashleigh
A Private Miscellany

Challenge #4
Think of England (takes place after Proper English - I don't know if you've gotten to it yet)

Challenge #13
A Song for a Viking (follow up short story to Think of England

Challenge #18:
An Unseen Attraction
An Unnatural Vice
A Confidential Problem

I see that you've also read Wanted, A Gentleman and The Henchmen of Zenda - I don't think I'll get to either tonight.

It's wonderful having you join in on the TIOLI Challenges. I really try for shared reads every month and I you and I between us are going to rack them up!

Oh - it's ok to add books a few days late, as long as you finished them in by the stroke of midnight. Finishing on time is more important than the posting on time.

Editat: maig 31, 2020, 11:13 pm

>54 Dejah_Thoris: I shared the reads! I'll get to the short stories sometime soon, and Think of England as soon as it comes off my holds list. (Within two weeks.)

juny 1, 2020, 12:14 am

>55 SilverWolf28: As we have similar reading tastes, I'm sure we'll have no trouble finding a few shared reads every month. This month was particularly good - of course, I don't usually read this much!

Editat: juny 1, 2020, 8:25 am

I think you might like the Missy the Werecat series. I've read the first four and am working on number five.

I really, really, really, really LOVE the Murderbot books!!! I just finished All Systems Red, and am about halfway through Artificial Condition. I was waiting to read the series until Network Effect came off my hold shelf, which it did this afternoon.

>64 SilverWolf28: I really liked all of them and I can't figure out why I waited so long to read them! (I've had the novellas for a bit.)

juny 25, 2020, 5:23 pm

>64 SilverWolf28: Have you read Spy, Spy Again by Mercedes Lackey? It's book three of a series and all of them are really interesting. It just came out a week or two ago.

juny 25, 2020, 5:34 pm

>67 SilverWolf28: I rarely read Mercedes Lackey anymore. I was a huge fan for years, but I found myself less and less interested in what she was writing. I'll have to take a look the series that Spy, Spy Again is in - maybe it's time to try her again. Or reread the first Valdemar series.

I'm sorry to say the I bailed on Grand Central Arena - I was over a third of the way through it and realized that there wasn't much going on that I cared about. What did you think of it?

Editat: juny 25, 2020, 11:14 pm

>68 Dejah_Thoris: I really like Grand Central Arena and its sequels. This is the third or fourth time I've read the series in the last couple of years since I discovered them. I would recommend finishing at least the first book sometime soon. The second and third books have a fun character that I think you will like.

Editat: jul. 1, 2020, 10:50 pm

It's really fun! I'm now in the middle of the next book, and it's also fun. I've been reading a lot of romances recently, and I'll post their titles in the June post soon. Any romance book that I post is one I liked. (If I don't like a romance I won't finish it.) I've been reading almost exclusively on KU recently so if you're curious about about a romance (or anything) that's popped up on KU let me know.

jul. 1, 2020, 11:07 pm

Will do! I've been reading (and listening to) a fair number of romances lately myself. There's nothing like a happily ever after ending in times of stress.

jul. 4, 2020, 11:48 pm

In this difficult year with an unprecedented pandemic and where the ills of the past intrude sadly upon the present there must still be room for positivity. Be rightly proud of your country. To all my American friends, enjoy your 4th of July weekend.

You're on fire with the reading numbers. That's just amazing! Congratulations.

set. 2, 2020, 10:06 pm

>84 richardderus: Thanks! A lot of those numbers are because I was reading two romances a day for most of June and July.

set. 2, 2020, 10:09 pm

Well, that does speed things up considerably. I got a romance whipped out in a day and a half (because I was really sleepy and kept drifting). Needed it after the intensity of The Slave Yards. Beautiful book, but not easy.

Editat: set. 2, 2020, 10:16 pm

>86 richardderus: It sounds really good, but I doubt I'll read The Slave Yards any time soon - it's just to much for me right now.

set. 2, 2020, 10:33 pm

>87 SilverWolf28: I hear you! Sometimes there's just a big "NO" to anything too complex, challenging, harsh...and that voice should always be attended to.

set. 4, 2020, 10:38 pm

Found your thread! So glad you enjoyed the Sector General books--I love introducing people to new books.

Can you cast your mind back to June and The Wizard's Butler? Amazon keeps recommending it to me. Is it worth reading?

Editat: set. 5, 2020, 10:48 am

The Wizard's Butler is definitely worth reading! I'm planning on rereading it sometime soon.

set. 17, 2020, 11:17 am

>90 SilverWolf28: Thanks for the recommendation. I just read it yesterday and found it to be a good solid read, not at all on the cutesy side and thankfully without any romance at all. I think I'll go ahead and try Lowell's space opera books.

set. 17, 2020, 7:41 pm

That one does look fun!
