I re-read the first two Farseer books earlier this year and could not push myself to read the third. Fitz just makes so many bad choices that I was continually irritated. They're exceptionally well-plotted and the worldbuilding is top notch but ugh.

That Time Fantasy list is hot, flaming garbage. The last quarter especially. I've read probably 75 of those books and while I didn't dislike any of them, WOW did most of the recent ones not belong on there.

One of my pandemic self-care tactics has been to buy books I truly love in hardcover editions, and shed paperbacks that I bought years ago and am kinda meh on. I just picked up a full series set of 8 books at Bear Pond. Extremely happy with that choice.
