Just got caught up on Expanse, my first read through. Really dug the current book, I like shake-ups. I think Miller was my favorite character. Not sure about the show but it's good enough haha

Finally reading Mordants Need! SOOO good. Love the Mirror magic.

i'm on Babylon's Ashes now. I skipped book 4 (the one where they go to that planet and all get blind and shit) I just wanted to get on to the whole Amos rescuing Peaches and all that. heh. you know I haven't read Persepolis Rising yet...I started it but then got distracted by Jack Reacher (cause I found out Scott Brick read the newest Reacher book, heh) and then Harry Bosch so I started the expanse again to try and get through Persepolis Rising cause the next one after that is already out!

I didn't care for Mordants Need.

Pfft, MN is great. Very Happy (And Thud was the last Pratchett book I read.)

Anyway, looks like I might be starting a full Malazan re-read...Just started Dancer's Lament yesterday. (Not a lot of people seem to like these Esselmont prequels, but I do. Very Happy)

Not reading the Kharkanas books this time though...although the truest prequels, they're just so dark and gloomy and dense. I'll probably read them again when book 3 comes out, but for now they're too harsh.

I've been very happy with the Path books!

Oy. Didn't realize the third was out. I had the 19th in my head, for some reason.

Amos is my fav character! Didn't like what they did to him for the tv series AT ALL.

So I finished Gardens of the Moon and am reading it a second time because I got so confused by who was allied with whom and what were they fighting over anyway??... Lol. That's what I get for reading in bed after binge watching Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. There are things I know I missed and it makes a lot more sense the second time.

Next up: My daughter sent me Where the Forest Meets the Stars. Reviews look intriguing.

That does sound intriguing.. AND Im glad its not just me that found GOTM confusing. At least YOU finished it .. I dumped it.

Now I must remember the book Av recommended as prequel which makes all clear.

Reading Feists Magician. Really well written but Im not a fan of the weird plot lines. I mean I guess these days you just HAVE to push out all the stops to come up with something remotely original. Not the worst book Ive ever read 😉 so theres that.

Magician was published in 1982. Very Happy (I like them, but I prefer the concurrent "Empire" series with Janny Wurts.)

The prequel I recommended was Night of Knives by Esslemont.

Anyway, I'm reading Esslemont's Deadhouse Landing now. Only problem is, I'm likely to finish it long before book 3 (now ordered) turns up. Sad

deer, by all means, ask us questions!! There is SOOO much going on! Can't say any of us will remember it all, but maybe between all of us.

Very happy you decided to read it again, rather than give up! Laughing Many people don't like Gardens, and don't go on, or don't even finish it. I enjoyed it more than most people do, but readily and happily admit it gets a lot better starting with the very next book!

As I feared, I was unable to eke out Deadhouse Landing, so have had to move on to Night of Knives. I will jump back to the last Paths book as soon as it arrives. (Seems they're set about 100 years before Night of Knives, which itself is set about 25 years before GotM.)

What do they call the situation where somebody reads so fast they have to worry about finishing the reread of the first two books of a fantasy trilogy before the third book arrives, and so might have to read something else before getting the book and finishing the trilogy?
