I stopped counting the number of pages read or reread in the past two weeks after i passed the 5000 page mark. I think it’s closer to 10k.
In short, I’m rereading all of the Valdemar and Pern novels. I’m adding these books to my personal library shelves whenever possible. Seven were recently ordered from Powells. I’m reading these with an eye to world building and writing styles. I find both worlds intruiging and I’ve seen more Valdemar fanfic but I’m fascinated by it all. I think it impossible to review either series or say which one book is my absolute favourite out of each. Instead I’ll ask the following question:
What is your favourite scifi/fantasy world series? What makes you keep returning to read more?
I prefer Lolly‘s review best, but this is definitely one that starts as a library book and quickly ends as a permanent edition to my own shelves. Don’t worry, I returned my copy to the NYPL! I made the garam masala roasted brussel sprouts. YUM!!!
This really really made me think about all the choices I make throughout the day, from what I chose to lunch to what and when I “reward myself for good behaviour”. Lots of thoughts here and maybe one day I’ll share more.
