Red Sister by Mark Lawrence  3 stars out of 5. Very good and detailed world building. Mr Lawrence knew exactly how he wanted this fantasy world to operate. He did a good job explain the different areas of land, people cast, and abby. I thought parts of it really dragged, okay I thought lets move the story along. Loved all the poisoner lessons. I would hate to go that class. I felt that you girls would not be able to do as much as the story had them doing. They just wouldn't have the maturity. I think this we make a good netflix show. It maybe better visually then reading it.

Ooh. It would make a great netflix show Alice! I felt the same way. I have the next book on my shelf but haven't gotten around to it because of the slower parts. But it is excellent worldbuilding!!

I think it would be better a netflix show. There is a lot of desciption around weilding swoard or how to fight. That is better visually thank just reading about it.

I am behind on my Jennifer Estep Spider books

I am reading Unraveled by Jennifer Estep. It is book 15. I forgot how well written they are. I really enjoy this series.

man, I am SO BEHIND on the spider books. too many books to read! I am reading Emerald Blaze by Ilona Andrews. It is so good! Love Andrews books. 

Started the Tufa books - those are great! Really enjoying them as well. They marinated on my shelves for a few years, about time to read them. Of course I think i only have books 1-3, darn it.  Books begat books...such problems I have...  :)

OK folks - I"m working on the new PnR Challenge.  If anyone has suggestions for what to name the categories - chime in!  I'm considering using Movie titles....but not sure.  Gonna rack my DD's brain.  She can come up with movies all day long.

Example:

An American Werewolf in London - wolf shifter

Anna and the Apocalypse - zombies

Hunger Games - dystopian
