I suspect you would enjoy the Bujold books - I'm surprised you haven't read them already!

I have a few friends who are always pimping them, just have never got to them :)

Seconded. I recently began reading them and they are excellent.

I've only read two. My reading for enjoyment has suffered lately Well, since I started and finished grad school and got a job. Not all that lately I guess.

The majority of those I read by my mid twenties. Don't read as many books as I used to with the advent of the internet.

The only one on that list that I've read--actually, I'm reading it now--is American Gods, by Neil Gaiman. The rest I've never heard of before--except for The Left Hand of Darkness and Harry Potter.
Ithithildyn on March 5th, 2009 06:26 pm (UTC)
And that's the last one I read! It's really good, and keep meaning to get the sequel.

I started reading American Gods right around the time the disaster of an ice storm started, and then forgot about it in the mayhem. I've been reading it since I remembered it a day or so ago. That, and a book about every Sherlock Holmes adaptation there ever was.

You know, the only one I've ever read was Harry Potter. Heh.:)

Ah, to win a Hugo. I think that might be the big, unreachable dream.

I've read about 26 of them and some I've never heard of. Very interesting list... I have read some others by some of the authors but not the winners. It's a good list. Perhaps I should check some out in my spare time... whatever that is.

I sort of liked Bujold and have read a couple of hers, but not a must read for me. CJ Cherryh had two new ones coming out soon, both sequels so I am looking forward to that.
