The ReaperOf portion of my name comes from Red Rising. Main character Darrow becomes known as the Reaper of Mars, and is one of my favorite series.

Terrasen is Terrasen from the Throne of Glass series, also one of my favorite series and ToG is my very first YA fantasy book.

Saknicole I love the Reaper Reference! Such an excellent book series! 1mo

I mean...based on my screen name, it wasn't going to be anything else. Lol I want more books in this world, maybe based on the offspring of Aelin and Rowan as well as the children from the other paired couples in this series. A new crew.

Also based on the events of the end of Crescent City 2 (not saying more), I'm hoping for certain other things. Being as vague as possible.

In a few hundred books I've read it turns out this is the only J I have lol. Unfortunately this is one of the very few instances where the movie was better. I liked the darker tones of the book, but some of the characters in the book bugged me... especially Lex. She was whiny and annoying in the book.

#AlphabetGame #LetterJ @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks

eeclayton My pick for J, too, but I enjoyed the book as much as the movie, for different reasons. 2mo
ReaperOfTerrasen @eeclayton honestly it was mainly Lex, every time she spoke it was something whiny and she drove me nuts. In the movie she's brave and courageous, in the book I wanted her to get eaten lol. 2mo

Eragon and Saphira have the best bond between two characters of any series in my opinion. I always wished I had my own Saphira while reading this book. And this series has one of my favorite zero-to-hero trope stories. Zero-to-hero is one of my absolute favorite tropes.

Ohh this was easy, lots of good Ds but I lovvve this series. The characters are fantastic and love the story, but the humor in it is excellent. I don't know if it's meant to be a comedy, but I find myself cracking up a lot with the banter between characters.

1/2) The biggest challenge I had driving my new book life into my gaming life was trying to balance both since I generally play RPGs which take many hours per game. Mostly I read during the work nights (Sun night to Thursday night) and game Friday and Saturday.) Though it overlaps sometimes.
3) Fantasy and Sci-fi are my main genres. But I've been branching out more and more, mostly thanks to BOTM and Bookish Box.

A Court of Mist and Fury | Sarah J. Maas

Very tough to choose just one. Near tie between A Court of Mist and Fury and Crooked Kingdom. But it has to be ACOMAF because it's Feyre's true introduction to Valeris and the gang. That's when the series picks up for me, ACOTAR is a decent book yes, but from ACOMAF it's fantastic.

So many other good C's too.

1) Definitely magic. Especially Ancient magic or Fae magic. Zero-to-Hero stories where a character starts at the lowest possible rung with hidden or long forgotten, powerful magic. Aelin, Feyre, Poppy…etc.
2) Throne of Glass, ACOTAR, FBAA, Shadow and Bone, Seven Realms/Shattered Realms.

Thanks to @ChaoticMissAdventures for the idea of doing this, thought it‘d be fun to make a ‘most read authors‘ graph. Not only is Rick Riordan my most read author, but his Magnus Chase: The Sword of Summer was the one book I picked up on a whim on October 15, 2015. The very beginning of my book life. This should be a thing; what are your top author book counts?

ChaoticMissAdventures Did you know who it would be? I don't read many from the same people so some on my list were a surprise! 2mo
ReaperOfTerrasen @ChaoticMissAdventures I knew Rick Riordan would be at the top, I‘ve read basically all of his. Most of the rest I knew would be up there, just not exactly where. 2mo

I) Hardcover all the way. With dust covers off, I love the rustic look of naked hardcovers, especially with excellent foiling.
II) Indoor generally, don‘t like the wind blowing pages. And I usually get distracted by background noises outside.

III) Spring! Still cool to warm and I know winters over! And love heavy spring storms.

1) When someone, especially when that someone I‘m absolutely sure isn‘t a reader, interrupts my reading to ask what I‘m reading or what it‘s about. And especially when I know if I try to explain it they won‘t understand it or really care anyway. I generally want them to just go away lol…

2) I would buy the first book I saw in Strand, then all the others and then the building itself.

300 Books read! I spent most of my life shrugging away books, just never had an interest. Basically spent all my free time gaming and, well, not reading. I can say I did start feeling the pull towards books for a few years before 2015, like Anakin Skywalker trying to resist the dark side. And like Anakin, I succumbed to the pull on 10/15/15…walking through a store.. I grabbed a book on a whim…and that was it. 7 years, 300 books, ~42/year.

1) I did have a few series' that hit me emotionally like that, not necessarily a specific book: The Eragon series had some moments for me, Auroras End, certain moments in the Throne of Glass series.
2) Fantasy (then Sci Fi, near tie)
3) Very hard to choose just one but: Kingdom of Ash

I'm currently reading The Magnolia Palace, a Historical Fiction I got from BOTM. I was very interested to learn that one of the main characters, Lillian "Angelica" Carter, is based on Audrey Munson, Miss Manhattan herself. Audrey Munson was one of the most famous muses and sculpture models in NYC and was dubbed American Venus. But also, she is the muse and model for "Wisconsin (Forward)". The statue at the top of my home states capitol building.

This gorgeous gem of a book hiding under the dust jacket! I always read hardcovers with them on, but when I finish them the dust jackets go away and the books go on the shelves in their birthday suits. And pulling off the jackets after reading is like unwrapping a gift, it's exciting to see what's waiting underneath... This is one of my favorite hardcover designs yet.

2) The Inheritance Games - Absolutely fantastic. The main character is very well created, and the endlessly intriguing plot kept me going. The Hawthorne Legacy was fantastic too and very much looking forward to the final book in August.

3) Gaming Saturday, reading Sunday. The typical weekend.
