Sat, 21 Jan 2017 13:47:16 GMTSomeone please help me and my understanding of Jay Allen, author of Crimson Worlds, books by listing all of his books in chronological order. I am a bit confused at this point.

Fri, 20 Jan 2017 17:36:56 GMTHum, this is odd. I could have sworn that I posted about this earlier. I guess either it got deleted, or I forgot to click on submit. Oh well. This being one of the slow times of the year, I find myself going back to books that have been languishing in my To Be Read list for a while. Right now, I'm reading the second of the Troy Rising series. I finished the first a couple of days ago and really liked it. John Ringo is one of those authors that I burned out on about 5 or 6 (or more) years ago when the Paladin of Shadows, Cally's War and Council Wars series came out. I really liked his central line Posleen War books and the Empire of Man series with David Weber. For some reason, last year I decided to try the Black Tide Rising books during the summer (another slow time) and really liked them. I read the Monster Hunter Memoirs this fall and really liked them, so on to the Troy Rising. The good news is that Ringo seems to have gotten over some his more annoying quirks (at least to me). Really solid writing that keeps my interest.
Fri, 20 Jan 2017 03:30:52 GMTThe time has come to discuss the January 2017 MobileRead Book Club selection, *Rivers of London *by Ben Aaronovitch. What did you think?
Fri, 20 Jan 2017 03:28:23 GMThttp://s.mobileread.com/upload/news/2017-01/Mystery_Scene_of_the_Crime.pngHelp us select the book that the MobileRead Book Club will read for February, 2017. The nominations will run through midnight EST January 26 or until 10 books have made the list. The poll will then be posted and will remain open for five days. The book selection category for February is: *Mystery*. In order for a book to be included in the poll it needs THREE NOMINATIONS (original nomination, a second and a third). How Does This Work? The Mobile Read Book Club (MRBC) is an informal club that requires nothing of you. Each month a book is selected by polling. On the last week of that month a discussion thread is started for the book. If you want to participate feel free. There is no need to "join" or sign up. All are welcome. How Does a Book Get Selected? Each book that is nominated will be listed in a poll at the end of the nomination period. The book that polls the most votes will be the official selection. How Many Nominations Can I Make? Each participant has 3 nominations. You can nominate a new book for consideration or nominate (second, third) one that has already been nominated by another person. How Do I Nominate a Book? Please just post a message with your nomination. If you are the FIRST to nominate a book, please try to provide an abstract to the book so others may consider their level of interest. How Do I Know What Has Been Nominated? Just follow the thread. This message will be updated with the status of the nominations as often as I can. If one is missed, please just post a message with a multi-quote of the 3 nominations and it will be added to the list ASAP. When is the Poll? The poll thread will open at the end of the nomination period, or once there have been 10 books with 3 nominations each. At that time a link to the initial poll thread will be posted here and this thread will be closed. The floor is open to nominations. Please comment if you discover a nomination is not available as an ebook in your area. *Official choices with three nominations each:* *(1) Moon Over Soho* by Ben Aaronovitch Goodreads (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/11101331-moon-over-soho) | Overdrive (https://www.overdrive.com/search?q=moon+over+soho) Print Length: 396 pages The song. That’s what London constable and sorcerer’s apprentice Peter Grant first notices when he examines the corpse of Cyrus Wilkins, part-time jazz drummer and full-time accountant, who dropped dead of a heart attack while playing a gig at Soho’s 606 Club. The notes of the old jazz standard are rising from the body—a sure sign that something about the man’s death was not at all natural but instead supernatural. Body and soul—they’re also what Peter will risk as he investigates a pattern of similar deaths in and around Soho. With the help of his superior officer, Detective Chief Inspector Thomas Nightingale, the last registered wizard in England, and the assistance of beautiful jazz aficionado Simone Fitzwilliam, Peter will uncover a deadly magical menace—one that leads right to his own doorstep and to the squandered promise of a young jazz musician: a talented trumpet player named Richard “Lord” Grant—otherwise known as Peter’s dear old dad. *(2) Artists in Crime* by Ngaio Marsh Goodreads (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/280865.Artists_in_Crime) | Amazon Ca (https://www.amazon.ca/Artists-Crime-Ngaio-Marsh-Collection-ebook/dp/B002RI90UE/?tag=mr022-20) / Amazon Ca (3 Book Collection) (https://www.amazon.ca/Inspector-Alleyn-3-Book-Collection-Ecstasy-ebook/dp/B00D0VYEB2?tag=mr022-20) / Amazon US (https://www.amazon.com/Artists-Crime-Inspector-Roderick-Inspectr-ebook/dp/B00BI8CE6Q?tag=mr060-20) / Audible (http://www.audible.com/pd/Mysteries-Thrillers/Artists-in-Crime-Audiobook/B002V1LATG) / Kobo Ca (https://www.kobo.com/ca/en/ebook/inspector-alleyn-3-book-collection-2-death-in-ecstasy-vin[...]
Thu, 12 Jan 2017 11:49:36 GMTI'm looking for historical fantasy books in a similar vein to Paul Kearney's Monarchies of God books, which I very much enjoyed. Even if there aren't any that are in exactly the same vein, any historical fantasy would be good.
Sun, 08 Jan 2017 22:32:43 GMTFrom one of contemporary literature's most acclaimed and beloved authors comes this magnificent new novel set in a small town in Ireland in the 1960s, where a fiercely compelling, too-young widow and mother of four moves from grief, fear, and longing to unexpected discovery. Tóibín's portrayal of the intricacy and drama of ordinary lives brings to mind of the work of Alice Munro. This is the MR Literary Club selection for January 2017. Whether you've already read it or would like to, feel free to start or join in the conversation at any time, and guests are always welcome! So, what are your thoughts on it?
