@taweret doesn't really matter as long as it's not too close to reality. I need some good escapism.

@splitbrain Nine Goblins by T Kingfisher. its a quick read and really clever and fun

also @Red you need to read this one because you would dig it

@taweret thank you again for this recommendation. that book was wonderful. reminded me a bit of Terry Pratchett's humor sometimes.

@splitbrain glad you liked it. Kingfisher has become one of my fav authors

@splitbrain What books do you like? Without knowing anything I'd recommend The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss, it's my favourite fantasy novel. Its part of a trilogy, the third book hasn't been published yet (and it might be years before we can read it).
Another novel I liked is Lonely Werewolf Girl by Martin Millar, a crazy urban fantasy about a depressed werewolf princess who escapes from her home in Scotland and becomes friend with two students in London. It's an interesting twist on the urban gothic fantasy with the usual werewolves, castles, hunters and so on, but there's also the Queen of fire spirits who is a fashion victim, two werewolf sisters who become punk rock stars, and other stuff that keeps things interesting and funny :)
