Looking for a nice fantasy follow up to Spinning Silver (fairy tale-esque with some romance) [R]

Just finished Spinning Silver (and have ready Uprooted) and am looking for another book of good literary quality in the same vein as those as well as The Bear and the Nightingale etc. Thanks!

You might like N.K. Jemisin's Broken Earth Trilogy or The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon.

Second person narration [R]

I was thinking to write an horror short novel at the second person. It isn't a "choose your adventure" kinda book.

Can it work or do I look like I'm trying too hard?

You can see how she handled it if you take a look at the Amazonsample; I normally hate second person and find it gimmicky as hell, but the way it's handled here is actually pretty cool.

I just want to be better and energetic and run all the miles and be happy with it. But, you're right. I'll play it by feel this weekend and ease up on intensity to be safe.

I bought the entire Broken Earth trilogy on Amazon by N.K. Jemisin. I'm so stoked to finally break into the fantasy genre for personal reading, and Jemisin has quite the accolades so it should be good. They're arriving today!

Just realized 100% of my collection is made up of MALE authors, need a good female suggestion!!! [R]

Ok, so i was chatting with this girl and she asked me what my favorite female author was, and honestly i couldn't say. I have never read a female proactively. So this girl accussed me of being subconsciously sexist, etc. It obliged me somehow to get home and review my bookshelf: Dostoyevsky, Miller, Mailer, Fante, Celine, Heller, Kundera, Vonnegut, Bradbury, Poe, Garcia Marquez, Rulfo, Kawabata, Houxley, Orwell, Camilo Cela, Gogol, Carver, Chandler, Hemingway, Rulfo, Cormac, BUK... the list goes on, and there was not single woman in there. Then I started thinking about film directors, bands, artists.... 80% Male. I'm wondering if anybody else feels this way? it's not that I avoid them consciously, but, it's just that when I plan on getting a new book, or getting into a new artsit or a writer or director, I'm not thinking of their sex or gender, i'm just following the trend I like. "Oh so i finished Slaughterhouse 5, then i'll have the karamazov bros", "Oh so Raymond Carver's stories were heart wrenching... need more of that", "Oh need more eastern europeans, more japanese authors", things like that. And although i don't wanna read a book just for the sake of reading a woman, I think it's a necesary thing to do... for reasons unknown. Any suggestions? where can i start?

Edit: So as you may imagine by the selection of authors I listed, I like the "spillyour guts" type of novels. Also: I'm repelled by Jane Austen or V. Woolf, just not attracted to their books.

I think you mean Hugo-award-winning author NK Jemisin. She's also a black female author, for more progressive points. Anyway, the one you'd want is The Fifth Season, which is the one that earned her Hugo. Her earlier work is also adequate, but this is the best.

Welcome to another edition of the Water Cooler Wednesday thread - where /r/nfl'ers can discuss their lives and get to know each other better.

This is the place to post things that wouldn't ordinarily be considered on-topic in /r/nfl. Did you meet a player that you got a picture with? Have a cool story about how you became a fan of your team? Write an NFL related blog post? Make a cool .gif? Is your car painted your team color? Snap a cool picture at the game last week? Have a shrine to your favorite player? Want to talk about something that doesn't really deserve its own thread? Post here!


Remember, that there are other subreddits that may be a good fit for what you want to post - every day all day!

I'll recommend The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemisin. It's an incomplete series though (second book is Obelisk Gate, out now, third isn't out yet) so be warned, if you like it, you'll have to wait for the ending.

I got through a few this month. The Fifth Season and The Obelisk Gate both got their hooks into me pretty much immediately and didn't stop. I then blind-bought the author's previous big work, the Inheritance Trilogy, got through the first one, and realized that I was kinda bored. I guess she got better at it.

I also read A People's History Of The American Revolution (it's okay) and 1776 by McCullough (meh).

I'm working my way through The Osamu Tezuka Story which is absolutely fucking mammoth, but it's kinda neat reading a biography in manga format. Even though I don't actually know much about the guy and haven't ever really seen any of his shows or read his comics, it's still very interesting.

Oh I also read all five volumes of UBER which is just... dang. It's real good.
