Thank you mom for tricking me into becoming a pure blooded reader. Every book I buy, borrow, steal from you or my sister, is all because of you.

“Istvhan had never yet blamed a woman because he was attracted to her, and he certainly wasn‘t about to start now.” Jesus…. What a man. And the way I pictured this man is weathered but gentle giant…. Sigh….. 😌 I do love me a gentle giant.

This man(Stephen) is such a gentle giant….. made up of a heart of gold, warm socks and a sweet sense of humor… if Grace doesn‘t snatch him up, I will…

“Saint‘s teeth, even if he hadn‘t been prone to berserker fits, there was nothing about Stephen that would set a maiden‘s heart alight. He was solid, reliable, and worried about people getting turned into severed heads or standing around with wet feet. Bards did not compose wistful ballads about men like him.”

I‘m sorry but I like my men solid, reliable and caring about severed heads and wet feet. Sounds like a good man to me Stephen.

I am equal parts offended and extremely impressed by this book. Offended because the next book isn‘t out. And impressed because this whole book kept me thoroughly on my toes and out of my mind. I sided with and alternatively distrusted everyone and everything at all times. My brain hurts so good. 😊

Okay, first of all, epic cover art. Like this is spectacular.

Secondly, I have, yet again 🙄, started a book without checking if it is from a completed series….. it is the first book and I see no second anywhere…

Thirdly, what exactly constitutes someone being a cyborg? Asking for a friend.

julesG This was published last year and yes, no idea when the next one is coming. Cyborg=cybernetic organism - a living/natural being that's been enhanced using technology. Think Borg, Robocop, but also Million Dollar Man. 2mo

Of all the presents I received from my dad on Christmas, this was the one I was most excited about. It is a children‘s book that tells the life story of Sitting Bull. My dad was so upset that he accidentally bought me a children‘s book, but this was the perfect way to peak my interest into a new reading subject. The book is stunning, with photographs and drawings covering each page. And it was written in a wonderfully beautiful and engaging way.

Good afternoon everyone! This is your resident mood reader, coming in with yet another book she is starting, even though she is currently reading 4 or 5 other books… 🙄🙄🙄

Okay first things first… epic cover. Dos, I was just about to start reading when I remembered it was Viking related and wondered if there was a glossary somewhere. And would you believe that I turned the page and found not only the glossary… but a whole ass pronunciation guide! And they look extensive!!! I don‘t even care if this book is bad (I haven‘t read it yet,) it gets minimum 3 stars just for that! 😍😍🥰🥰😘😘

I am in the introduction. Not even in the actual book yet, just the introduction! And I have already learned so much! For some reason the killing spree of Jack the Ripper and the Golden Jubilee of Queen Victoria being in the same time period just never clicked. Then there‘s the monetary system. I had some googling to do on that. Again I haven‘t even touched the main book yet! 😳😳😳

“Fuck Geoffrey,” Brand said. “He‘s lucky I‘m not hiding outside the sanctum, making ghost sounds. What‘s happening now?” Hee hee hee I love Brand.
Side quest, does anyone else logically know that Geoffrey is pronounced the same as Jeffrey, but still read it in your head as GEE OFF REE?

Sometimes you‘re just in the mood for Arthurian stuff. And I would like to lodge a formal complaint against the word TRAVAIL. It makes my hands itch. My brain dislikes the way it looks and sounds.

That moment when a book is so chonky that you have to split it into manageable 100 page chonks to make reading it feel possible. Hopefully I‘ll get so deep that the chonkiness will become irrelevant, but until then… 100 pages a day

Don‘t mind me, just reading some sweet little stories to get out of my 2023 slump. This was nice and soft and squishy, like a good moss. If I weren‘t currently in a winter hellscape I‘d go outside and take in the trees. But alas, winter has finally reared is frigid head.

The sheer amount of PINING in these books is unmatched. I powered through volumes 1 and 2 and ended up staying up until well past 6 am… and I got up to work at 830. Save me.

So far this is fascinating, a little disturbing and showcasing a fair bit of political naivety, though as I am listening to this from the future, I may have hindsight‘s glasses on.

This is a solid 3.5 read. Quick to finish. Though I do feel like the baby was dropped a little bit too quickly as a plot point…

This book was utterly fascinating, completely heartbreaking and horrifying. The ribbons tying the past and present were drawn into the light and into understanding. I am descending into a changed worldview. I would very much like to learn more.

To be clear, I can guarantee that I would accidentally and unknowingly break every single one of these rules…. Except the book club thing… I don‘t book club. And maybe rule ten… but that‘s only because I don‘t agree with guns. I‘m more likely to wack someone with a book.

Foundryside: A Novel | Robert Jackson Bennett

Have you ever just reached a point in a book where you just can‘t tell if someone else is evil besides the obvious characters? Cause I find myself asking if certain characters are good witches or bad witches (see the Wizard of Oz Glinda for the reference)

dabbe Yes, though I can't recall specifically what book. I think of those characters as tricksters because you just can't tell whose side they're on. Kind of like Jack Sparrow in the PIRATES movies. 10mo

CatLass007 The description of this book sounds intriguing. I‘ve added it to my Audible wish list. 10mo
