Read completely out of order but that didn't make it any less enjoyable. This one gives you lots to think about as you read. At the moment I find myself contemplating the way we shape ourselves and possibly people and events around us by which parts of ourselves we decide to hold on to our let go as we journey through life.

My number 1 spot was a no brainier - but there was fierce competition for the other 2 spots! Starless by Jacqueline Carey and Fever by Mary Beth Keane just missed out....

Do you have a number 1 that I should read in 2019? Tag below!

Itchyfeetreader I loved the Gollum and the Djinni ; have gifted several copies ! 12mo
MicrobeMom So hard to choose! My favorites were A Man Called Ove and 12mo
Mitch @MicrobeMom I know, I agonised! Madeline Miller was in the shortlist for sure! 12mo
Mitch @Itchyfeetreader I love the period NY setting, it was really charming. 12mo
AlaMich I loved the Liveship Traders Trilogy!! (edited) 11mo

Have you guys ever used this..... you put in an authors name and it generates a word cloud of authors other readers read who like that author....the closer name is to the one you searched for is the strongest link....

@Mitch thank you!!! I love the Tintaglia postcard! This is my favorite Robin Hobb trilogy (so far- haven‘t read them all) and I‘m planning to frame this for my library wall. I also really like the book mark. You rock!

What a fantastic end to a brilliant trilogy! Liveship was even better than I remembered overall, if not a bit wordy. Going to take a break from Hobb for a bit before starting my Tawny Man re-read.

So many diverse women-from wise & bargaining grandmothers & adventurous sea faring daughters, to determine serpents and cunning dragons. They each develop greater empathy, become more politically motivated & influential, learn how to love themselves & others.

Add to that a cracking conclusion to the story, a fitting end for everyone that is paced soooo well - this is nothing less than fiction at its best - read it! #fangirl

DuckOfDoom Malta is one of the perfect developing characters. I started hating her, but she continued to grow.. I love Robin Hobbit for her characters ❤️ 2y
Mitch I agree @DuckOfDoom they genuinely develop and react to circumstances. I was really cheering for Malta ! 2y
xicanti YES. Malta is one of my favourite literary characters because of how beautifully she develops throughout the series. 2y

Wow Robin Hobb, you sure can write some killer exciting fantasy! I loved this series! Live ships, with animated figureheads, sea serpents, dragons, poisonous rivers, ancient cities, and pirates! So much to love here! And the story continues in The Rain Wilds trilogy 😊🐉🐲☠️

laurenbescoby I have so much love for these books 😍 2y

GondorGirl Her writing is always fantastic and she's such a sweet person to boot. I had the pleasure of meeting her a few years ago and she was so excited because people in her panel were cosplaying Fitz and the Fool. 2y

Okay, I am seriously loving this series. So many fierce female characters, intersecting stories, and crazy twists. I can't wait to see how it wraps up, but I'm also sad I'm so close to finishing!

I had a really great reading month in June! I gave four books 5🌟which does not usually happen and I got all of these books off my TBR 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

My favorites were Ship of Destiny (best fantasy book I've ever read), Spinster (if I could write, I'd want to create something like this), and Americanah (I haven't stopped thinking about it).

I hope you had a wonderful month of reading! 🤗📚

I don't know how to put into words how much I love this book and the series as a whole. Lots of strong, kick-ass women, dragons, talking ships and pirates! This third book was such a good ending to the series, but it has left a little hole in my heart because it has ended. The only remedy must be more Robin Hobb books. 📚❤

I really can't recommend this highly enough!

Kalalalatja @TheLondonBookworm lucky you! It only gets better the more you read 👌 3y
CrowCAH Your review has me wanting to read this right now, instead of sticking to the list of TBRs! 😁You said it: strong women, adventure, and Pirates; all up my alley! 3y

Train time is reading time 📚 only 200 pages left of this amazing book. I want to know how it ends, but I don't want the series to be over #booknerdproblems

#currentlyreading #LRC8 #LitsyReadingChallenge

Bookworm-Bobbie I know that feeling well. I think Hobb's needs to be bumped up my tbr list! 3y
Sarah83 Is it the last book of the serie? 3y
Kalalalatja @Bookworm-Bobbie she is amazing! 3y
Kalalalatja @Sarah83 it is, but luckily there is a lot more books out there set in the same world, but following different characters 👍 3y
