Reading progress update: I've read 380 out of 431 pages.
Banewreaker - Jacqueline Carey

For the longest time, I meant to update that, if you are going to directly criticize Tolkien for his use (or lack thereof) of women in his books, you have to do better. And while I think Carey still isn't up to the level with any of her characters as an Eowyn or, certainly, a Galadriel, I do slightly take it back now, because Lilias became a lot more interesting when she gained a semblance of self-reflection. ( And I'm told that Cerelinde gets insane character development in the next book, which the character that she is an analog for, Arwen, never does.)

 

It still bothers me that Lilias is a combination of Saruman and Galadriel and got her power from a male dragon. Also, Carey has a fully anti-Elf--excuse me Ellylon--agenda, which I have issues about all on their own, and will make my eventual review.

Schedule Question for book club TOR Monthly Free eBook
Kushiel's Dart - Jacqueline Carey

Reminder: any edition of the book can be read (do not have to download the free ebook from publisher TOR/Macmillan).

 

Should we read the books as soon as announced or start them the next month?

 

"As announced" would mean reading this one now through middle of August.

 

"Next month" would mean an August read, giving people time to get book and adjust reading plans.  Bookclub would show current read plus mid-August when next announced would show a next book.

 

Will anyone be joining me in reading Kushiel's Dart or is this month's freebie of no interest (or already read, it is an older publication)?

Book Club Read: TOR Monthly free ebook
Kushiel's Dart - Jacqueline Carey

I'm glad this month's free ebook from TOR is this first in series (Kushiel's Legacy) one because I keep meaning to get around to reading it.  Friends rave about it.

Not positive it will be everyone's cup of tea who joined the booklikes bookclub for the TOR monthly freebie; supposedly pretty explicit and a dark fantasy.  The "dark fantasy" isn't always what I am in the mood to read — hence why I kept putting it off.

Reading progress update: I've read 51 out of 431 pages.
Banewreaker - Jacqueline Carey

This is one of my best friend's very favorite books, and that's very unnerving, LOL! You always feel at least a little pressure to like it. Luckily, so far, it's really good. And I do love that she intentionally absorbed Tolkien's world and turned it on its head. Carey's Silmarillion game is strong!
