Welcome, I had a big interest in rocks and minerals at one point in my life too! Still have a few crystals at home :-)

Hi! I have seen you around but didn't put out an official welcome.

Welcome!

I have been interested in local geology - there is a beach a few hours away where you can collect raw amethyst just like, in the wild. I am super stoked to drive out there this summer!

That beach sounds amazing, that would be so fun to collect your own raw amethyst! Good luck when you're able to get out there :)

Hello, I'm excited to be here and meet everyone!

I'm a first time reader for Wheel of Time and am currently about 130 pages into book four. The show drew my interest into reading the books and after reading the first I was hooked and invested in the character's adventures and lives. My absolute top favorite character thus far is Moiraine but I really like several of the others too. I really like all the Aiel we've met so far and want to learn more about them.

I loves so many books and two of my favorite recent authors I've come to enjoy are V.E. Scwhab and Samantha Shannon. V.E. Schwab's Shades of Magic trilogy are some of my favorite books I've ever read. It's universe and concept of magic are very interesting. Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon might just be my favorite book of all time. It's so beautifully written and with such a rich world and characters. Her Bone Season series is also fantastic!

I also really like reading about history and tend to be drawn towards medical history. It just really fascinates me how they used to do things and the way it evolved over time. Fashion History is another subject I love learning about.

Aside from reading I also like photography, collecting rocks and minerals, doing jigsaw puzzles, going for walks
We're almost at the same spot! I just finished book 3!

I'm nearing the end of book 4 now and can definitely tell you you have a wild ride ahead of you with this one and won't be disappointed. I understand now why so many consider this their favorite one

Welcome to the Tower Blythe, V.E. Scwhab is an amazing writer, and her books have brought me to tears more than once. I also love reading history, but more historical fiction.

Thank you!
V.E. Schwab is very good at writing terrifying villains that were still frightening even when did a reread of Shades of Magic. Those are my favorite ones by her and also the first ones I read. I had the biggest book hangover after finishing them and had trouble choosing what to read after because what could possibly compare? She creates such interesting concepts. I think the only one of hers that fell a bit flat for me was The Near Witch.

What historical fiction do you read?

I can second the Saxon series, brilliant. Not read any others of his yet but have Arthur trilogy on my kindle ready.

It is sooo good, I would say better than the Saxon books (as I love to hate Uhtred in them, as he is such an arrogant bastard) :laugh:
