Book tastes

Addicted to science fiction & fantasy; love authors like Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchett, and similar. Always seeking out a new world-building, high fantasy standalone or series to get lost in from LoTR to Game of Thrones, to Patrick Rothfuss' Kingkiller Chronicles. Very fond of historical fiction, as well. Love Sena Jeter Naslund's The Stargazer, Ken Follett's Kingsbridge series, & Carlos Ruiz Zafon's The Cemetery of Forgotten Books series. I'm also a big fan of J.D. Robb's In Death series & have been looking for another series that has a similar vibe to it, though it's different than a lot of what I read. Open to YA novels as well - best friend turned me onto Sarah J. Maas & a couple other YA authors that have been fun reads.

Don't get this!

Not a big fan of romance but I imagine I just haven't found the right book as of yet.

lamotamant's Secret Santa is LVStrongPuff. Help LVStrongPuff pick the right book.


3njennn: I would suggest Neal Shusterman's books for you. If you haven't read any of his yet, I would start with the Unwind Dystology. (Sun, 25 Nov 2018 17:38:18 -0500)

LVStrongPuff: Hello,

I picked some of these books because of the books you and I had in common. So Nefertiti is because you liked historical fiction and I love historical fiction. The Cuckoo's Calling is because you are a mystery fan and Rowling fan. It is a great series. The Time Keeper is just a wonderful book and I share it with everyone. Once Upon a Dream is because of your other YA author. It is a book I am thinking about checking out myself. The final book is because you have it on your to read list, but you don't own it. I hope you enjoy.

From one book fan to another. (Fri, 30 Nov 2018 18:14:08 -0500)

lorannen: Removed The Sleeper & the Spindle (9781489350244)—lamotamant already has this book. Replaced with Unwind (9780857079978), suggested by 3njennn.

Done. (Mon, 10 Dec 2018 18:46:07 -0500)

lamotamant: The Sleeper & the Spindle was on me - I think I botched up a few of my books and they wound up listed in all of my collections rather than just in TBR and such. Already sent LVStrongPuff a thank you message but wanted to say thanks to 3njenn as well - excited to add all of these to my TBR! :) Happy holidays! (Tue, 25 Dec 2018 23:46:59 -0500)
