I loved the penultimate book in this series, but the last one (tagged) was a bummer. Kudos for the #fantasysetting though.

Mehso-so

Reading way way out of my wheelhouse with this one: a friend of mine leant it to me, the series being one of his all-time favorites. Apparently the entire series was outlined first and then became both D&D modules and the companion novels. The characters of the mage and kender were standouts, but the rest seemed more archetypal and flat. Even if it wasn't completely for me, I did enjoy the story- lots of classic fantasy landscapes to appreciate.

Chrissyreadit I loved this in high school. 10mo
TobeyTheScavengerMonk My college roommate was a mega-fan of this trilogy. 10mo
Palimpsest Read this series at least twenty years ago and loved it at the time. I remember liking Raistlin and Tasslehoff. 10mo

Billypar @Chrissyreadit I wish I'd read more fantasy like this when I was younger- the only series I picked up was by Lloyd Alexander, and I remember enjoying that one. 10mo
Billypar @TobeyTheScavengerMonk Even if it missed the mark for me, it did whet my appetite for trying other kinds of fantasy. I think I'm going to make reading my first Discworld a priority for this year. 10mo
Billypar @Palimpsest Yeah, those two were clearly the best. They should have gotten their own spinoff series! 10mo
Chrissyreadit @Billypar are you looking for some intro fantasy? The Belgariad by David Eddings is fun and faster than it looks (5 Books). 10mo
Billypar @Chrissyreadit I am- thanks for the recommendation! I have a terrible track record for following through with series though, lots of first books read and without reaching the second 😳 10mo
Chrissyreadit @Billypar that‘s ok- try out the first one and see what you think- it‘s a favorite of mine and has a wide following 10mo
Chrissyreadit Or not.... but it is a good classic fantasy. 10mo
Billypar @Chrissyreadit Thanks- I stacked it! 10mo

I love fantasy, but I was underwhelmed with this Dragonlance classic. There are too many characters and not enough space to develop them, so they end up occupying types.

1. Random. I keep a running list but there always seems to be something I've forgotten.
2. Honey Mustard.
3. Cook but only vegetarian. Preparing meals can actually turn my stomach so I then have a hard time eating.
4. Of course! A couple cookies every day make me happy.
5. Tagged book mentions the Inn Of The Last Home in Solace where the best fried potatoes are served. I love potatoes!

Ke633 I love potatoes too! Thanks for sharing! 1y
knittedgnome I do the running list thing too! There is always something that I see we need as soon as I get home from the store!! I love potatoes too. If you have a smoker you need to make smoked potatoes! The best! 1y

#NYBirthdayGiveaway @LazyOwl

3 in 1. These are 3 fantasy trilogies that I loved as a teenager. I spent so much time in the worlds that these books offered me. All three of them are long spanning series that are still going to this day. I might not be reading the new ones that are coming out now, as my tastes have grown over the years, but the memories I have of the older originals are precious to me and I will carry them with me always. ❤️

LazyOwl I've read some of the Shannara Chronicles, I've been meaning to read the whole series. 2y
GrilledCheeseSamurai @LazyOwl Its a pretty big series. I really enjoyed them though. I haven't read the last 5-6 or so that have been published but one day I'll get around to them. I guess Terry Brooks is gearing up for a finale in the next few years. 2y

#fifteen #NovemberByTheNumbers

Haven't opened this book for ages. Bought it on a university field trip to the Globe Theatre in London in 2001.
We had an over eager coach driver who brought us across Westminster bridge as Big Ben chimed for 8 a.m. That resulted in a day starting with English breakfast near Piccadilly, a visit to the Museum of London and St Paul's, then Twinings, followed by book shop after book shop. When I arrived 👇👇👇

julesG at the Globe in the early evening, being a Groundling was no fun. But Vanessa Redgrave as The Tempest's Prospero made me stay, although my feet hurt badly. 2y

It's hard to explain why this book means so much to me. Years ago I read mostly urban fiction (Fly Girl, Coldest Winter Ever, etc) and thrillers because that's what everyone else around me read and I wanted to fit in. Reading this showed me that I love fantasy & that it's okay for young black girls to read whatever we want and that I don't have to tailor myself to fit anyone's preconceived notions of what hobbies I enjoy or what books I read👇

EchoLogical Honestly, there's so much more I could say about this book but I'll leave it at this: it revealed my love of fantasy which in turn led me to accept myself as I am and helped me care less about what others thought of me. 2y
julesG 😍😍 I had a similar epiphany with this series. 2y

MiyakoBunny I ❤️ everything about what you just wrote! & I'd be lying if I didn't say I adore that it was a book📖that helped you through it😎 2y
EchoLogical @julesG That's awesome. ☺ 2y
Dragon Definitely stacking this one 👍 2y
EchoLogical @MiyakoBunny Same. I didn't realize how important have been throughout my life thus far. It's crazy to think about. 2y
EchoLogical @Dragon It wasn't the book so much as it was the kind of book (fantasy). The story itself does hold a special place in my heart. It wasn't written as a companion to the original D&D games, if I'm not mistaken... Dragons, elves, wizards all wrapped up in a tale of good versus evil... 👌 I feel a reread coming on. 😆 2y
Dragon Sounds fun, love dragons 🐉 etc... 2y

I thought I didn't have a single book with the #SeasonOfYourBirth in the title. Then I remembered this.

This book was actually my very first Fantasy book that I ever bought and I remember why I bought it too! The cover art looked so freaking cool! I'm really glad I read it - because I totally got into it and bought the rest of the series. Weiss' & Hickman's chemistry really works because reading his or her other books' without the other co-author I noticed that they weren't as interested or well written. Also the book has some amazing characters!

One of my favourite quotes by my favourite character of all time.

"Hope is the denial of reality. It is the carrot dangled before the draft horse to keep him plodding along in a vain attempt to reach it."

"Are you saying we shouldn't hope?"

"I'm saying we should remove the carrot and walk forward with our eyes open!

My very first fantasy read. My sister had this whole series. Actually, I think she has everything Weis and Hickman ever wrote. She was reading it and she was the coolest person I knew at the time (ballpark 1996). Now I've got my own set 📚😎 #fantasyorscifi

DuckOfDoom This cover looks cool! 3y
LEGolasa @DuckOfDoom it is cool! All the cover art for the Dragonlance books are pretty awesome 😁 3y
gestapocat This was my first fantasy book too! I was like 13 when I bought it and only did because of the cool looking cover (it sat on my bookshelf for a while before I actually began to read it) it was such a good book though! Shortly after I bought the rest of the dragon lance series 3y

Fun to revisit the books from my youth but not as good a read as I remembered. Still decent though. And you can never go wrong with dragons, elves, and magi.

The DragonLance series is excellent. Love them all!

When I met Margaret Weis at Dragoncon years ago, I saw her name on a booth and said, "Wow! You're Margaret Weis?" She said, "Yes, that's me." I said "THE Margaret Weis?" She said, "Um... I guess so?"

Classic! I got all three autographed. ?
