To the TBR!

I know, your TBRs are miles long already but YOU GUYS I found these two lists and wanted to share them with you anyway.

For the Sci-Fi lovers out there: Geek Exchange has some suggestions for you.


As for me, I added Blackbirds by Chuck Wendig and Shadow Ops: Control Point by Myke Cole (DANGEROUS MAGICIANS WHAT?!). And I already marked The Lost Cities by Paolo Bacigalupi as TBR so YAY.

This one you're REALLY going to hate me for, but I don't even care! i09 has 10 Book Series So Addictive You Never Want Them To End. Yep, more series to your TBR. Sorry not sorry!


And so I added Terry Pratchett's Discworld novels (which my hubs loves), The Watch Series by Sergei Lukyanenko (there is mention of a King of Cats!), and The Temeraire books by Naomi Novik (uh dragons durrr).

Have you read any of these series mentioned in the articles? Did I miss one you think I should add to the TBR? Let me know!

Lisa is a gamer, crafter, fangirl, mother, wife and unabashed nerd who is pretty ridiculous and it's best you know that up front. When she's not binge watching Netflix or crafting into the wee hours of the night, you can find her spending a lot of her time on Pinterest and Twitter.

  1. The covers for the Chuck Wendig books are AMAZING. I LOVE them. I have this one on my Kindle sitting there waiting on me. WHY haven't I read it yet. And as per your suggestion, I will check out i09 because if you like it I'll probably like it too!

  2. I will be anxious to hear what you think of Blackbirds. I couldn't rate that one. I had major mixed feelings about it.

  4. Oh Lisa. ALL THE DRAGONS. I have had Temeraire on my TBR FOREVER. It sounds so rad I can't deal. I'd get on that bus.

  5. If you haven't read Robin Hobb yet, you really should.
    Her "Realm of the Elderlings" series is great. So far it's three trilogies and a, soon finished, quartet.
    1. The Farseer Trilogy
    2. The Liveship Traders Trilogy
    3. The Tawny Man Trilogy
    4. The Rain Wilds Chronicles

    1 and 3 have the same characters. 3 follows directly from 2, 4 follows more or less directly from 2 and 3. But they are best read in the order they are written. There's dragons in all of them, but in 1 only sort of.

    If you want to take a peek at the Realm of the Elderlings, there's a great story called Homecoming in Legends II (subtitled Shadows Gods and Demons when it was split in to for pb, edited by Robert Silverberg (Both Legends anthologies are great samplers for fantasy series.)
    Homecoming is also in the Robin Hobb/Megan Lindholm (same author, different pseudonyms) collection The Inheritance along with a couple of more stories set in that world.

    2. Hobb is my favourite Epic Fantasy writer.
      To tempt you even further, I'll list the titles of the four books in The Rain Wild Chronicles:
      1. The Dragon Keeper
      2. Dragon Haven
      3. City of Dragons
      4. Blood of Dragons

      Yes, I noticed you like dragons ;-P

  6. I am fascinated by the second link you have up here - there are some series that sound pretty darn epic. But the pretty covers award will go to the first link because the covers of the books on there seemed pretty attractive to me :)
