Re: Misc. thread So my wife and I were sitting at a restaurant on the beach a few hours ago, and when she left to powder her nose, I slipped out Gardens of the Moon to read a paragraph or two. A fellow at a neighboring table cAme over and said: I noticed you're reading the first book. I'm in the seventh. It's amazing, it's brilliant. You won't understand what's going on until you're a few books on, and the world is vast. Don't give up."

Talk about unexpected!

Re: Misc. thread
@Idlewilder, @Eclipse, @Jeni - where are you? How far did I leave you behind? ;)
Let me assure you that Assail is totally worth your time. In some ways Esslemont surpasses Erikson in Blood and Bone and Assail. Try them out. :)

I only got as far as the end of the first part of Dust of Dreams before my head imploded and I literally couldn't concentrate long enough to read more than a page at a time .... thought I was getting back to normal a few months ago but then had a bit of a relapse... I have actually read nearly 3 books over the last month so I'm getting back to normal, but I might leave it another month or so before I head back to Malazan to finish the series.

Re: The Magicians by Lev Grossman - Who's reading with us? I am. Been meaning to reread this for a while as want to read the sequels but been such a long time since I read Magicians, I probably need to refresh on it, before reading them.

Also I remember it being bloody brIlliant. Brett Easton Ellis does Hogwarts meets Narnia. (Also one of the genuinely most creepy scenes I have ever read, and one of the most beautiful as well.)

Re: 2015: Top Five Read and Top Five Waiting For (so far) This is hard! Whose idea was it to limit to 5 *sigh* OK, these are the 5 I am picking at the moment. Alright, I can't count and seem to be breaking my own rules. Here's 6 because it was hard enough cutting the ones I already cut.

  • Day Four by Sarah Lotz
  • The Just City by Jo Walton
  • The Grace of Kings by Ken Liu
  • Touch by Claire North
  • The Water Knife by Paolo Bacigalupi
  • Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine

And for most anticipated (this is another list that could vary based on mood):

  • Fool's Quest by Robin Hobb
  • The Thorn of Emberlain by Scott Lynch (I haven't seen a confirmed date, but have seen them say it will be this year)
  • Half a War by Joe Abercrombie
  • Armada by Ernest Cline
  • Zer0es by Chuck Wendig

Re: What are you currently reading?
So over the Summer I finally read Hobb's The Mad Ship, which was incredible. I think I'm enjoying the Liveship Traders even more than the Farseer trilogy.

@Raptori, we got another one in our club ;D :D
Woo!  ;D 8)

It was amazing8)

Please may I  join the club too?  :D Read Liveship Traders twice over time and planning re-read, but The Mad Ship is best of all. I have those old covers you showed the other day, ScarletBea, and still like them best. ;D

From what I remember, Ship of Destiny is even better. Wish I could completely forget books and read them for the first time again...

Re: Depression is a bitch... from a friend I didn't realise so many have us got various stuff going on this is quite selfish but I'm glad I'm not alone in the way I feel/interact with people.

I want to meet you guys at the grim gathering but I'm scared. What if you don't understand my accent,what if I run out of things to say,what if noone talks to me.etc

I don't think it's selfish at all, it means that there are others around who understand so of course it feels good.  :)

What accent do you have? I grew up around loads of different accents, so I usually have no problem understanding anyone - and I now live in Finland where people often have quite strong accents. Back in England I once even managed to understand some Polish guy who only spoke Polish and ended up translating his grunts and gestures into English for him! I probably have the weirdest one ever - posh mancunian and northern londoner mixed with a bit of an Aussie influence. @Saurus used to speek flawless Queen's English, but I've managed to corrupt her accent.

I don't think there'd be a problem with not having anything to say - we can always get out our books and have a bit of quiet reading time if any of us need to relax. We'll definitely talk to you, and I'm sure the others here would too!  :)
