Aaand did you like it? ^_^

 

I'm a long-time Robin Hobb fan and the Rain Wild Chronicles haven't come out here yet (by "here" I mean - translated to Russian and imported from Russia), so I have just the e-books on my laptop but haven't been getting around to read them due to fear of ending up cross-eyed from not being able to stop reading her awesomeness. XD

Yep, I did smile.gif I already read The Farseer Trilogy, Liveship Traders Trilogy and The Tawny Man Trilogy. It was so annoying that it was so hard getting hold of Dragon Haven, after I finished Dragon Keeper. Before the summer there were already several people in line before me at the library, so that I would get it while I was on holiday. I checked the waiting time again when I returned, and that's about three months. I couldn't stand to wait any longer, so I just went ahead and bought it. I figured that when I like her other books, I would probably like this one too, so it wouldn't really be a waste of money after all ^^ Robin Hobb definitely writes my type of books smile.gif

Cool, I've read the aforementioned trilogies, too, as well as the Soldier's Son books (different from the other 9 books, but also very, very good), and also have all of these at home (Fool's Fate is probably my favourite Hobb book). She's my favourite fantasy author, and I'll gladly buy the Rain Wild books in case they ever get available here.

Book Title: Frankenstein

Author: Mary Shelley

 

I read Frankenstein for class - does it count..?

 

I'm also curious about the definition of a book. I read a magazine weekly that is over 100 pages and has more text than the average 100-page novel (as the pages are bigger, the font size is smaller, and images are minimal for a magazine). Would it count?

Book Title: Lord Sunday

Author: Garth Nix

 

Oh my god... That ending was... fantastic. Ooh, I love Garth Nix so much! I don't know how I'll be able to cope without the characters, though. They've sort of become a part of my life and now I've finished the series. It's an accomplished and sad feeling.

 

Pfft, what to read next...? >.<
