Pretty, Fizzy Paradise

I'm back! And reading! And maybe even blogging! No promises!

Still alive! Still tumblring, generally. Work's been busy, but that's no excuse to neglect my primary blog.

Actually what I'm really hoping for is a book recommendation or two. I've consumed a lot of books lately and I'm looking for something new.

So does anyone have anything they've read recently that they've really liked? I'm open to much of anything, though I have a special fondness for sci-fi/fantasy. :-)

Any help would be appreciated!

    I guess the most recent fantasy stuff I've really liked was David Anthony Durham's Acacia trilogy.

    I should point out, though, that Galen Beckett's trilogy that started with The Magicians and Mrs. Quent and The House on Durrow Street is going to be completed at the end of March with The Master of Heathcrest Hall. Highly recommended.

    If you like sci/fantasy with a paranormal romance twist I would suggest the Ilona Andrews series of books. I will list titles but probably get them out of order. Magic Bites, Magic Burns, Magic Strikes, Magic Bleeds, Magic Slays.

    Basic info. Woman hiding from powerful sorcerer father. Magic has reasserted itself in world. Magic rules at times and knocks technology out and then it shifts and tech rules. All sorts of magic and fantastical stuff is back. Were Animals fit large in story. She has a wicked sword. Set in Atlanta, Georgia. Really neat and really creative in terms of mixing modern and fantasy worlds into one.

    I've been on a bit of a steampunk kick lately so just read "The Difference Engine" by Gibson and Sterling. It's a lot of fun.

    Technically not fantasy/sci-fi but if you've never read it The Count of Monte Cristo is one of the best ever, and is a natural fit for anyone who likes fantasy and sci-fi.

    Also just reread the Temeraire books since the new one's coming out in a couple weeks. It's the Napoleonic Wars fought with dragons!

    Anything by Patricia Briggs is good. Although if you're looking for something modern, try her Mercy Thompson series. I'd also recomend Sunshine by Robin McKinley. If you're interested in something a bit... alright, a lot lighter, you should try one of the compilations of the old St. Trinian's cartoons by Ron Searle. It's rather light reading, but they're absolutely hilarious, in an Addams Family way.

    You have too many options,for example Poul Anderson is a good option or you can choose to Greg Bear they have so many interesting books.

    Not a Book of Science Fiction and Fantasy but I recommend it as it is called "The Lady of the Lake" by Rymond Chandler (Drama and Thriller) ... sure you read it already!
