Fantasy Book & Author Discussion / Fantasy Faction's Best Books of 2018
« on: January 10, 2019, 08:04:51 AM »
It's live on the main site:
http://fantasy-faction.com/2019/fantasy-factions-best-fantasy-books-of-2018

I have to admit that I've only read less than a handful of them (literally: I've read 4). I recognise a few more names, there are some titles that I'm waiting for the paperback to read, but the others are completely new, which feels quite surprising.

Note to self: no, don't let this make you frustrated and think you'll never have time to read everything to the point of not enjoying properly the current book

In the UK it's on FOX, starting next Tuesday 15th.

I assume they'll use the whole trilogy. I quite enjoyed book 1, book 2 was ok and I couldn't finish book 3, maybe on screen it will be better...

Fantasy Book & Author Discussion / Your year in books 2018
« on: January 07, 2019, 02:38:51 PM »
@DrNefario's comments on the goals thread reminded me of this thread from last year - here's the 2018 summary.

Some people just link to their Goodreads page, I don't have GR so here's my LibraryThing summary year in books:

Number of books read: 43
Number of fantasy/sci-fi books read: 25
Total pages read: 17,331 (average of 403/book)
Total fantasy/sci-fi pages read: 12,575 (average of 517/book)
Biggest book: 1,187 pages (Memories of Ice, Steven Erikson)
Smallest book: 48 pages (We should all be feminists, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie) or for SFF: 198 pages (In the Vanishers' Palace, Aliette de Bodard)

By women: 14/33% (or 7/28% of SFF)
By men: 29/67% (or 18/72% of SFF)

Plus 98 stories of 1,500 words at the Monthly Contest, a total of 147k words = 420 pages (at an average of 350 words/paperback page, according to google), which is an extra book!

Some of these actually surprised me, and it was a bit less than last year.
