I just did this series tracker as well. Weird that it seems I tend to abandon books in the board fantasy genre by women authors. What's up with that?(except for Patrick Rothfuss). I didn't put Sanderson there as I still intended to give his work another go some day.

Maybe the percentage of women authors I read vs men authors.

Cool list. You really do give up on women faster than a college student. :)

October Buddy Reads are done. And just right at the end of the month.

The King's Blood 3/5. Took way too long to get me invested in the story.

Gardens of the Moon 5/5. Loved it. So intricate and detailed.

Added Red Seas Under Red Skies to May.

I ended up putting The Warded Man aside to pick up another time. So not DNF, just probably not in the right mood to read it.

I'd also like to read Red seas under red skies. Finished the first book longer time back and wanted to read the other 2 ever since. Could I also read it with you?

I answered in the Red Skies thread. Of course you can join us.

Finished my February buddy reads. The Lions of Al-Rassan. 5/5. Great historical fantasy read. I'll definitely be reading more by the author in the future.

Added 3 Guy Gavriel Kay books. That's me pretty booked until October.


message 28: by Angela, I'm Silverfox lost (new)

Angela | 3591 comments Mod
Haha if you ask me to do another Guy Gavriel Kay buddy read I'll probably say yes. Another added to my list for October.


message 29: by Dan (new)

Dan Hey Angela - if you're doing Sailing to Sarantium in October, I'd love to join (although the post is from 2016, so this may be old).

I'm starting a spreadsheet to track all these buddy reads I'm signing up for :)

Angela | 3591 comments Mod
Hi Dan, I just keep updating the tracker, so yes we're reading in October. Great if you could join us. :) Link below to the thread.

message 31: by Dan (new)

Dan Thanks Angela. Looking forward to another Kay book, I don't know if anyone can create a character as fully realized and unique as he can.

May Buddy Reads.

Memories of Ice 5/5 brilliant book. I'm loving the series.
Promise of Blood 3/5 Wonderful magic system, but never warmed to any of the characters.
Red Seas Under Red Skies crossing over into June as well for me.

June Buddy Reads

Red Seas Under Red Skies 4/5. Enjoying Jean and Locke, but book was too long.
Smoke and Mirrors: Short Fiction and Illusions - bit of bust really. Wasn't that great.
Malice finally have from the library so going to try in July.

July Buddy Reads.

The Republic of Thieves Read with Laura. End up being 3/5. I liked the first two books more and The Lies of Locke Lamora is still my favourite in the series.

House of Chains Read with Samir. 4/5. A great addition to the series, but not on par with the first three books.

Malice - 4/5. Enjoyed this more than I thought I would. Looking forward to the next book.

The Curse of Chalion. I ended up putting this aside for now. I just started to feel like I wasn't in the mood for it currently.

Added Midnight Tides to start late September.

Kieron Don't forget the FBR monthly book club reads for Sept and October.

I haven't committed to them yet Kieron as I'm unsure if I can fit them in. It would be nice to take part but realistically it might not happen, especially as I'm hoping to start the next Malazan book.


message 41: by Kieron (new)

Kieron I know what you mean, there are so many good series starting every month, it's hard to commit to them all. Malazan must take priority over everything that goes without saying.

I might be reading that one around the same time! Yay!

Pretty true Kieron. I'm looking forward to my first ICE book too. Hopefully in December.

Awesome Miche! I couldn't keep up with the pace in Buddies, Books and Baubles.


message 45: by Miche (new)

Miche | 3150 comments I hit a reading block and didn't read anything for almost 2 months. That put me behind schedule and no way I can go faster to catch up with those series. The books are so emotionally heavy that I can't read at my normal speed.

Tigana was a large buddy read, which I really enjoyed. 4/5.

September Buddy Reads

Valor - Loved it 5/5.
Sailing to Sarantium 4/5 - a bit of a struggle to read, in that I was never fully engaged until the last third of the book.

October Buddy Reads

Midnight Tides 5/5 - absolutely amazing. Definitely reread material.

Angela | 3591 comments Mod
The other buddy reads were a bust this month. I'm blaming Midnight Tides and Ruin (Faithful and the Fallen #3). The latter as I decided to read it early, not being able to wait for the buddy read group in November.

I pulled out of A Song for Arbonne and The Pillars of the Earth. Pillars I'm hoping to read in December while on holiday.

Added Malazan books through to October 2018.
