Lois McMaster Bujold –> I read 2 of her books from 2 different series. It was alright, but nor exactly what I was looking for. It’s supposed to be romantic Fantasy, but in both books I didn’t like the romances and couldn’t take the male protagonists seriously. I won’t read more of her books.
Arnaldur Indridason –> I read part 1 of the Reykjavik Murder Mysteries and liked it. Will continue this series.
D.J. Molles –> Good old Zombie survival story. I might not continue with this series but will probably check out other books by the author. The story was a little too short and I wouldn’t have minded a bit more character development and depth.
Cinda Williams Chima –> Read part 1 of the Seven Realms series. Better than expected but at the moment I don’t feel like reading on. There are other things I want to get to first. I liked the author’s style of writing though and that might not have been the last of her books I read.
Rebecca Levene –> Yes, yes! Surprise of the year. In a positive way. I read 2 of her books and loved them to bits. Will have to wait until next year for the third part of her Hollow Gods series.
Lorelai James –> Nope. Never again. Too cringey and infuriating. I wrote some things about it here.
Larry Niven –> I enjoyed Lucifer’s Hammer and now Ringworld is on my radar.
Jay Kristoff –> Didn’t like Nevernight and didn’t finish. Only got to page 40 or something. Those footnotes were killing me.
Frank Herbert –> I finally started reading Dune! So far, so good. I only read 3% but am curious. Hopefully I can finish it this year.
