  1. Goodreads accounts!

    I think the "Recommended for..." bits might be my favourite, such as: or
  2. Goodkind 54: How to Revive a Dead Dick

    I can't quite decide if the mysterious author Jack Raines is going to end up being a poorly-disguised stand-in for Goodkind or if he's going to be Richard Rahl. He might quite possibly end up being both.
  3. Goodreads accounts!

    There was a Westeros group on Goodreads for people from here at https://www.goodreads.com/group/show/49763-westeros-on-goodreads but it never really had much activity in it (it's almost as if there was somewhere else we could talk about books...)
  4. While I thought Now You See Me 2 was still reasonably good fun I think the original was probably better in just about every respect. Of course, neither of them is worthy of any comparison to The Prestige. I agree The Illusionist did suffer in comparison to The Prestige, the main story was interesting enough but the magic in it felt a bit dull in comparison to the tricks in The Prestige.
  5. What are you listening to? Vol. XXII

    Radiohead : Killer Cars
  6. September 2016 Reads

    They're set in that fictional China's equivalent of the Tang and Song dynasties respectively, I liked them both a lot.
  7. Star Wars Rogue One: Now With Less Rouge

    I'd also watch the follow-up, Ewoks vs Predator.
  8. The Call by Peadar O'Guilin [SPOILERS]

    Same here, whenever I read about the Black Cauldron (and it does show up quite often in Celtic-influenced fantasy) I have flashbacks to Prydain's Cauldron-Born.
  9. Wise Man's Fear XI

    Maybe that's why nobody voted for him writing the book, because they all know that it's apparently been written years ago...
  10. Wise Man's Fear XI

    He does seem to be trying to suggest that it's his fans who are partially responsible for him not writing the book, based on some internet poll that probably the vast majority of his readers will never have heard about.
  11. Urban Fantasy/Paranormal Romance v. 3.0

    That's a nice surprise since it was starting to look like it was being pushed into 2017 (I think originally it was meant to be published this month).
  12. Malazan: High House Shadow edition

    I didn't mind it in Deadhouse Gates but by the end of the series I was getting tired of the Horrible Desert Crossing, especially since none of those plotlines were as good as in DHG. While I wouldn't say Blood and Bone was one of the top-tier Malazan books, at least it did have a little bit of variety by having a Horrible Jungle Crossing instead.
  13. Guy Gavriel Kay

  14. Given that they teamed up with an actual Norse God (not to mention Wanda) on multiple occasions they shouldn't really have a good reason to dismiss Strange, although I wouldn't be surprised if Stark at least would try to claim their powers were due to aliens/science rather than magic.

    While the trilogy didn't really go in the direction I was expecting it to after the ending of the first book, I did still like Sword and Mercy[/i] a lot as well. I think maybe Sword is perhaps a bit too slow-moving at times but I think the story does come together well at the end of the series.
