  1. I mean I could also be very wrong and you both are correct. I read the book pretty quickly.
  2. @Caligula_K3 -- Karaddin posted a recap earlier in this thread. It's under a spoiler tag, but let me see if I can find the posts. Here's where that conversation starts -- because I realized that I had probably missed or forgotten a bunch of stuff. Anyhoo, the next few posts, especially by Karaddin, can get you up to speed on what happened in the prior two books (esp HtN) to prep you for what's going on. I will say that Nona the Ninth is much more straight-forward, narratively. Very little of the (spoilers for Harrow the Ninth):
  3. Necromancing this thread because skin care is an ongoing endeavor! So I learned something over the last six or so months: My skin has changed so much that mineral-based sunscreens are now too drying for me to use. I've tried 15 or 20 of them at this point and none of them are suitable for long-term use. So I went back to the drawing board and have now landed on using a moisturizer with chemical sunscreens and I found one that works with whatever the hell is going on with my skin these days and LOL it's not even that expensive: La Roche Posay Tolerain 30SPF. My skin is stupid as hell.
  4. It really is. I kind of want to adopt a dog now just so I can name it that. Or adopt a really grumbly cat.
  5. @karaddin I'll dig up the quote, just a sec. Also thank you for the run-down on the necros and their cavs. All of that makes sense. One thing about why Augustine hates Cristabel: And regarding Ulysses:
  6. Spoilers for AIM/the Angel through the end of the book and also for Nona
  7. I started in on Nona the Ninth, but I feel like I need a post where we summarize everything we know so far before going in. Because having to dig through this thread during my re-read is going to frustrate me to no end. What we know so far (spoilers only up to the end of Harrow the Ninth):
  8. Aaaaaand I've already finished the first Wyndham-Banerjee book and started on the second. Enjoying the hell out of the first one -- thank you again for the rec @Hereward!
  9. I picked up the first book based on this rec and while I haven't finished it yet, I've been enjoying the heck out of the novel thus far. If this book can even moderately stick the landing, I think I'm going to enjoy this whole series. Thank you for the rec @Hereward! Oh yes -- I mentioned this in the What Are You Reading thread, but the book fits thematically here too. Will just copy/paste: I also recently finished The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle (in the United States she got an extra 0.5 deaths due to similarities with another title) by Stuart Turton. I went in completely uninformed, aside knowing that it was a murder mystery with a spec fic twist, and I'm glad that I did it that way. Anyway, in the spirit of that last sentence, I won't get into any detailed descriptions, but I will say that I enjoyed the journey -- the writing and characters are very engaging (even when they're awful human beings) and the book's ending works well enough if you don't interrogate it too much.
