Ich habe mir in den Kopf gesetzt, häufiger weibliche, erwachsene High Fantasy zu lesen. Mir ist aufgefallen, dass Frauen dieses Genres in meinem Regal völlig unterrepräsentiert sind. Gefühlt stammen alle großen HF-Romane von Männern: „Der Herr der Ringe“, „A Song of Ice and Fire“, „Das Spiel der Göt...

Sometimes you read a book--or I do at least--and then have no idea how you feel about it. This is one of those. So I let it sit for a month or so before reviewing, and... I think I really liked it. So short plot summary: Shortly after the death of her mother, Yeine is called by the grandfather sh...

I think I'm going to place this in the "it's me not you" category. Sometimes being thrown right in the middle of things works for me, sometimes it doesn't. I'm more than willing to see where things go so long as I find the journey engaging. And by 14%, I expect to know something about the protag to ...

Deeply interesting read, I enjoyed it, and I could see where it's not to everyone's taste. When Yeine is called from her homeland to the vicious court of her mother's family, she's declared a potential heir, but the politics are complicated and might just kill her. As she gets more involved she di...

What to say about The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms. I did have some things to say but it has been so long now since I've finished the book that I can't remember all of them. But here we go anyway. I'd heard good things about N.K. Jemisin and knew she had a couple successful series. It was against my...

I have to admit that I've resisted this book for a good two years. It was highly recommended by many people in many places, but the problem I had - being a stubborn sort - was that I was always being told that I MUST read this if I wanted to support diverse reading and diverse authors. *SIGH* I w...

Series: Inheritance #1 Not as good as The Fifth Season, but I liked it better than I thought I would.
Grac's Never-ending TBR Pile of Doom
I read this last month and for some reason didn't review it at the time, but since I'm about to review the second book in this trilogy (and am just about to start reading the third), I thought I'd better remedy that. Also, it's 4am and my brain made me get out of bed a little while back, so I might ...

I picked this series up when I was incredibly frustrated at my inability to find fiction that kept my attention. This kept my attention- I read most of it in one sitting, and had to be yelled at to go to sleep. The bit where the character is telling you the story isn't abused-- normally that kind of...

This book had a lot of hype when it was first released, followed by a backlash that seemed primarily motivated by the fact there is romance in it. Now that I’ve gotten around to reading this, I did not enjoy it, but that had less to do with the fact that the protagonist hooks up with a dark god than...
