Book tastes

Mostly genre lit--fantasy, urban fantasy, sci-fi, mystery, thriller. I have a deep love for smart adventures, kick butt middle aged female protagonists, and plot twists I can't guess. In non-fiction, I like true crime and weird science.

Don't get this!

Not so much of a fan of historicals or romances, unless I'm in the right mood.

Arifel: A Big Ship at the End of the Universe by Alex White is science fiction that ticks the "awesome middle-aged woman protagonist" box, and has a great plot to back it up! (Fri, 30 Nov 2018 12:04:59 -0500)

luzie: What about The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde? For mystery/adventure/plot twists. (Tue, 04 Dec 2018 16:47:35 -0500)

wisemetis: Second The Eyre Affair and sequels.

Also noticed they have read the Vorkosigan books by Lois McMaster Bujold. She has another series which starts with The Curse of Chalion, and the sequel, Paladin of Souls hits the kick-ass middle-aged female protag and twisty plot. (Wed, 05 Dec 2018 13:22:50 -0500)

lorannen: Done. (Fri, 14 Dec 2018 19:43:27 -0500)
