I set a reading challenge on Goodreads for 20 books this year; I've only read 8 so far, so I don't know if I'll meet it, but it's a substantial improvement over the past couple of years where I've netted like, 2, maybe 3.
I finished Last Flight--Asunder is my favorite Dragon Age novel (Evangeline ♥), but this would be a close second. If you like Wardens and want to know about pre-Dragon Age Blights in Thedas, it's a pretty good read. Also, some glimpses of modern day templars and mages looking for refuge in the Wardens, which is just my kinda gooooood shit. Also, griffons.
I still need to finish A Court of Wings and Ruin, but after that, I'm done with Sarah J Maas. This one is dragging so badly, and after giving some of her other books a shot, I've come to the conclusion that me enjoying A Court of Mist and Fury so much was a fluke. Also, her fanbase is ridiculous.
What's gonna get me an easy 3 reads is the Paradox series
by Rachel Bach. I wanted to read some sci-fi to help with my Mass Effect fic, and this came up on a military/sci-fi female protag book list on Goodreads. I'm about a third of the way done with the second book now.
They're nothing ground-breaking, and there are a few tropes that I'm not wild about, but overall I've been having a lot of fun with them. Devi, the protag, is 100% my kind of lady: she unapologetically loves her whiskey, she loves her fucking, and she loves her fighting. I actually stayed up way past my bedtime one night last week to read, which is something I haven't done in years. Since college, I think.
