Default Re: The Book thread.

I'm not completely done, I'm on like the 8th book I think. But I read so quickly that it's best to ask for new recommends early.

Also, I have no male/female/gay/straight preference for books. Really, it just needs to be interesting and not too crap. Although if there's a lot of raping and talk of pissing and spitting and torture and people who don't bathe near enough I tend to get irritated. I did not like Abercrombie at all and GRRM is almost not enough payoff to be worth it for me. Not gonna lie, I prefer that stuff glossed over.

Mostly fantasy, a lot of sf, a higher-than-usual-for-me amount of YA (market glut last year) with a healthy sprinkling of crap I'd been meaning to read and finally got around to.

I do have a special place in my heart for trashy older SF about the future-in-1985 when we all have flying cars and personal robots.

I also like a good old-school fantasy epic with some good political drama, an interesting magic system, and a quest.

I've been doing a lot of urban fantasy/paranormal recently, but again, market glut.

Apparently I have no idea how to make a collapsed list on this forum so sorry about the extremely long list making this post huge.
