I'm rereading the City Watch series this year because it's about the real power of the law to protect the weak from the powerful and the powerful from each other and to create an environment that allows inclusion and diversity to prosper. I need this to bolster my hope while my country slides towa...

Dragons with indigestion, a man named Carrot, and a dysfunctional secret society. This novel is a lot of fun, and turns the fantasy genre on its head. Unfortunately, it doesn't go much deeper than that, and I never connected with any of the characters (besides Errol, the pet dragon. But that's a giv...

This book was cute, but it felt pretty average to me. The story didn’t bore me, but it didn’t really absorb me either. I liked the characters, but I didn’t feel invested in them.

Another hilarious tale from Discworld. I was cracking up reading this one, and it had one of the better stories of the DW novels I've read to date. You'll never look at dragons in novels the same way after reading this one.

Ah gods.Terry Pratchett fills me with unending guilt because he is my husband's absolute favorite author. I mean, he worships at the altar of Terry. And I give him plenty of book recommendations that he dutifully reads, and I try to read his recommendations.And I just don't like Sir Pratchett's book...
Philosophical Musings of a Book Nerd
'This is probably the first democratically killed dragon, one man, one stab.' If I were to pull out one theme from this book I would have to say that it is about the fickleness of the mob. Basically the mob, or as in this book, the population of Ankh-Morpork, simply switch and change throughout ...
