Hi everyone! It's almost the start of a new year which means that this group has almost been going for a year! That's fairly crazy to me when I think about it but I am happy to say we're still going and we're still, more importantly, reading awesome books.

As December is a Sci-fi month and we're reading Dune and Toll The Hounds that means that January will be a Fantasy month so feel free to suggest as many of the fantasy books that you have in mind to read or on your shelves as you would like and then have a look at what everyone else has suggested and second those which appeal to you!

I will say, please only nominate a sequel if the group has already read the fist book together, otherwise make sure it's a standalone or the first in a series.

Thank you all so much for making this group so much fun for me to manage! Happy reading and I look forward to all the suggestions!!
