Book Recommendation thread!

So, a conversation in Discord last night made me realize that in the time I've been in TGi, this collection of nerds has never had a spot for book recommendations....so I'm making one. Books, audiobooks, one-offs, trilogies or series that are dozens of books long. Whatever you like, and think other ...

Re: MEDIA

Yup, I have the whole Iron Druid series. Damned disappointed it's over, and REALLY hoping we get a spin-off following Owen, or just a hell of a lot more of Oberon's Meaty Mysteries. Luke Daniels is one of my go-to narrators as well. I tried Hearne's collab series Kill The Farmboy, but it was..."not ...

Is it just me, or was Jake Busey one of the most satisfying TV deaths since Joffrey?

Re: MEDIA

Good to know going in, but being geared towards younger audiences doesn't necessarily bother me. I love Rick Riordan's books and they are very definitely written for younger teens. When I say Hunger Games was being read as though her audience was pre-schoolers, I'm not exaggerating. The narrator was...

Re: Stranger Things S03 **SPOILERS**

I liked it...not quite as much as Rhett, apparently, but I liked it. For Season 4, I can't wait to see whether "The American" they have in Russia is Bob or Jim, cause it has to be one or the other. I'm expecting Jim, but I'm hoping for Bob. I didn't catch the science teacher listening to Weird Al, s...

Re: MEDIA

Yeah, I had tried audiobooks several times before and had trouble getting into them as well until Rinin got me to listen to the first Dresden book. I've found it really comes down to finding the right narrators. They can have a bigger influence on how much I like an audiobook than the quality of the...

Re: MEDIA

Watched all of stranger things last weekend through Tuesday. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Saw Spiderman the week before. Was super fantastic. I don't really watch a lot of tv anymore. Rinin got me hooked on audiobooks with Dresden Files back in 2012 and at this point I overspend on audible sales the way m...
