    Fourth Quarter 2019 Reading

    I'm in Paraguay. We have two seasons. Summer, and not Summer. I'm reading War and Peace at the moment and I'm loving it so far! I love all the characters, the writing and the overall story. I especially enjoy how well Tolstoy develops each character and gives even the most minor ones very distinct characteristics. I'm keeping notes on who is who so I don't mix anything up though lol My favorite characters so far are Pierre, Andrei, Rostov and Marya. I'm still waiting for my copy of A Little Hatred to arrive, which will be this friday
  2. There is a pretty good review on GR right now that was posted just this week. It sounds great! I can't wait for my copy to arrive! https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/2073413162?book_show_action=true&from_review_page=1

    Third Quarter 2019 Reading

    I haven’t read many books this year yet, but I’m hoping that once I finish college in a couple of weeks I’ll be able to dive into more heavy readig. My favorite books this year so far have been Chapterhouse:Dune, The Stories of Your Life and Others (I’m surprised I haven’t seen Ted Chiang being discussed here, his sci fi short stories are great!), and Bad Samaritans (an economics book that mixes alot of history in it, it’s a great book and I suggest people to read it if they live in a developing country, like I do)
  4. I’ll just borrow my brother’s Kindle so I can binge read during an entire weekend and then come here and obsess over every detail lol I don’t know how Joe does it, but I’m amazed by how well I remember many details and secondary characters from his books even though I read them once six years ago. I’m excited to meet the new characters, experience a New story, and to see how JA has evolved as a writer in all these years.

    Rothfuss XV: Move along, nothing to see here

    I have completly given up hope for this trilogy to ever be completed, which is sad because the two books really helped me during a tough time in my life back in 2015.
  6. I'm so excited to dive into the new trilogy. Sadly, my copy will be arriving around the second or third week of October, because I live in South America and things just take a while to get here I hope everyone's still excited to talk about the book a month after is out though! This is going to be my first time geeking out on this forum about the publication of a long awaited fantasy novel and I can't wait for it. I remember I was in High School when I read the first trilogy, and now I'll be reading the start of the new trilogy just after I finish college
  7. I honestly don't think I have it in me to wait any longer I may end up preordering the hardcover this afternoon after work, it's been so long since I read a JA and I'm feeling the anxiety slowly creeping in. I'm sad I won't be able to reread the other books before this one comes out though. I only read them once between 2013 and 2014 and although I vividly remember the characters and the plot, I don't want to miss out on the details once this one comes out.
  8. Any news on when can we expect the paperback edition on the UK? According to Amazon its going to be on May 2020, but IDK if that is accurate https://www.amazon.co.uk/Untitled-Abercrombie-2-4-Joe/dp/0575095881/ref=tmm_pap_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1558657952&sr=8-1-fkmrnull
  9. Just noticed that the new trilogy has a name! Don't know if this was confirmed earlier:
  10. Cover reveal! It looks great! http://www.joeabercrombie.com/2019/04/04/a-little-hatred-uk-cover/

    Popular Book series you’ve tried and failed to get into:

    The Wheel of Time, I gave up after book seven. I really enjoyed the first five books, but the sixth and seven were a chore to get through. But I´m still excited for the TV Show! I think it has potential. Other books series are The Dagger and The Coin and The Realm of the Elderlings

    Denis Villenueve to direct Dune

    How about Iwan Rheon as Feyd Rautha? I think he could pull it off. Besides he has the dark hair like he was described in the novel.
