Re: Best book/series you ever read
Ever? Any genre? It’s hands down The Lies of Locke Lamora, despite me reading it as often as I have and actually having to retire my original signed copy as a look at thing only, I still live it on every reread. Kings of the Wyld came out in 2017, and I’ve already read that 4 times. Out of genre, I’d nominate Wilbur Smith’s Cry Wolf, just bloody good old fashioned, double fisted action, and it has tanks! As far as series go, Pratchett’s Discworld deserves a mention as does Butcher’s Dresden Files, and out of genre again there’s George MacDonald Fraser’s Flashman series.

The Lies of Locke Lamora is definitely my next read :)

Re: The smell of books I hear your reasons, but they just don't hit me.

I love the feel of books in my hands (the bigger the better).
I love feeling where I am in the books (start, middle or end, just by feel).
I love the look of books in my shelves, organising them, changing order, remembering things just by looking at them.

Re: Disney princess as warriors @Elfy I knew what you were getting at about halfway through that first sentence. Was all woooo, he's going to talk about my favourite Disney film of my childhood :)

Also, so many of them have awesome animal sidekicks.

Re: How long do you give a book to grab you? I got really nice surprises from books that started poorly - and also nasty disappointments from books that started well.

There isn't really a specific thereshold that keeps me going, though. I think it's a combination of how well-written it is, the potential I may see in the characters and/or plot turning into something, how interesting/unique the premise is, perhaps even who the author is. Someone I already had a good experience with or is known for making some bombastic twists that make it all worthwhile, for example.

Re: What are you currently reading?
%50 on Locke Lamora and I'm definitely getting in. It's getting better and better :)

Damn, you're pulling away. That's what I get for letting work get in the way of reading. I'm 35% and still enjoying it.

%85 currently. Normally, I would have finished this book way earlier but this month has been a slow month. I will probably read one more book and finish the month :)

The book is excellent btw :)
