  1. Past hour
  2. Started Kings of Paradise, and on the first page it's clear this is going to be a dark and bleak book. About 100 pages in and liking it, it's a big change after reading The Blade Itself but not in a bad way.
  3. We are tentatively set for Sunday, so still have time for questions
  4. Raul Reads https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC-CkGL7XcdqtJwzQbVJ__ug And Michael K. Vaughn is only 1 sub away from 100, it's a great channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCLqYEZfhPSeMuIqR_C_fZGw WalkerWrites7 https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC5_hn9VbSrheO5__inMBqKg
  5. They play the Rams, Seahawks and 49ers all twice and I don't think it's a stretch to say the Cardinals may be the 3rd or 4th best team in the division. They also have to contend with the rest of the NFC in the playoffs like the Saints, Bucs and Packers. Had he gone to Cleveland the best team in that division is maybe the Steelers who aren't getting any better.
  6. Yesterday
  7. He also gets to play with Chandler Jones and doesn't have to play against his brother in playoffs until SB.
  8. Sounds good to me, will start spreading the word end of this month
  9. Yeah, I think we shouldn't wait too long. End of this month/beginning of April? As an international reader I know what a pain it is to get books in time if people announce a readalong too late. We can still remind people about it in later videos and put the announcement in the description box.
  10. @Jolien Reads and I will be hosting a Faithful and the Fallen group read starting in May with Malice. The schedule will be: May: Malice June: Valor July: Ruin August: Wrath We will be having monthly online meetups to discuss each book. The group read is open to anyone wanting to join, so clear your TBR schedule and join us! We will be spreading the word via YouTube and social media in the coming weeks.
  11. Sounds great! I'll start making the forums and stuff for it. When would be the right time to announce it? To give everyone time to get the books and prepare. Seems like most everyone has their TBR set for a month ahead or so
  12. I'm in! We have plenty of time to spread the word and you're right, even if it's just the two of us we'll have a good time!

  14. You mentioned May and my brain had one of it's rare moments that it actually worked: The other night I was already thinking about what series we could group read next and reading your post made me realize: The Faithful and the Fallen is pretty popular and we finish The First Law trilogy in April. We could start promoting the Faithful and the Fallen group read next month (or even late this month) and have that as the next series that we read month to month! Have the same setup for online meetups and get a few people to join us. Heck, even if it's just the two of us that would be fun! It would look like this March: Before They Are Hanged April: Last Argument of Kings May: Malice June: Valor July: Ruin August: Wrath What do you think?
  15. Us Brits still think we're pretty hip and out-there having bacon with syrup - an idea that floated across the North Sea from Netherlands around 20 years ago. I just don't think we're ready for sausages (links) and syrup yet. surprising when you consider how well pork goes with sweet in so many other dishes. Saying that, going back 500 years, we had loads of recipes which combined beef with sweet things, like dried fruit. We don't eat those any more either.
  16. I really liked Blood Song, and went straight into Tower Lord. I found the 2nd a very different experience, and didn't enjoy the writing style so much - but fair play to Ryan for being able to be so different. The fact that every chapter started with an account of a scribe called Vernier, felt an overall unnecessary waste of ink and the book would have been no worse without those interludes. I did enjoy the relationship between Vaelin and Reva very much, and their "road trip" was great. Not terrible by any stretch. Just a teeny bit of a let down after Blood Song. I never managed the third (i think...?). Thanks for reminding me of it though. Great to remember back.
  17. If you still have a spot, I can make it work! Otherwise I can wait until May or June as well!
  18. Last week
  19. I would like to suggest Blood Song by Anthony Ryan. It's the first book in a trilogy, but I've only read the first one (need to pick up the second one asap...) However, it can definitely be read as a standalone and I thought the story was very interesting!
  20. J.J. Watt chooses... Arizona? I thought he would have chosen the Browns or Bills, they have the best chance for him to go deep in the playoffs. Arizona sat at home for the playoffs last year and there's already talk about the head coach feeling a little heat. Sounds like he wanted to be reunited with his old D coordinator and Hopkins, and like this was more about money than it is about winning... not that there's anything wrong with that.

    Favorite horror books

    I know IT is a popular book, but I've tried for years to finish it and I keep putting it down. As for my favorite horror book, can't say that I have one that definitively sticks out. I'm making an effort to read more horror books, so I'm hoping I find a new favorite.
  22. Finished it last night, and while it had a few moments it wasn't my cup of tea. It explored some interesting subjects and I can see what he was trying to do with it but it wasn't something I enjoyed too much. The main character wasn't likable or sympathetic most of the time, and I can deal with that if they are an intriguing character but he struck me as so selfish and unaware. His arc wasn't too satisfying and the romance angle wasn't necessary. I don't like to post negative reviews and bash someones hard work, so I won't do a video review but it looks like I'm in the minority and lots of people loved it. We all have our preferences and tastes, so that's what makes this all interesting! Maybe it's me but when an author uses "WTF" repeatedly unironically it annoys me. I gave it 2 out of 5.
  23. Thank you! I just finished the Liveship Traders trilogy as well and they are sooo different that it's difficult to compare the two for me. I think my connection with Fitz is just something that nothing can top, but the story in LST was definitely grander in scale and especially that last book blew me away! I'm looking forward to the rest of my Elderlings journey.
