So I’m always in search for the next book/book series to read.
(well I don’t really read, I listen to audio books but it's all the same )
Can you give me some suggestions?
I'm in too:
Fantasy, good story arch, non-perfect characters
I also like: assassins, court intrigue, angst, war, fun with genders, races and sexuality, spies, tricksters, some romance, con artists and humour.
But not all books contain all that (the Discworld series do)
So if you know any books that contain some of that preferably the first three things do give me a suggestion. I’d love to get some more suggestions or give some to you
Be sparse with the YA. I can’t seem to be able to get in to that these days.
Okay my Lovelies, I'm gonna have to be firm with you now. NO young adult books/series PLEASE
