Fantasy Bingo Possible Picks | Fourth Row

15 Apr

Almost done! Just one more row after this one.

If you’d like to learn more about r/Fantasy’s 2017 Bingo sheet, click my original post on the subject or the direct link to the announcement thread. And if you’re curious, here are my first, second and third row possible picks.

Here’s a reminder of what the card for this year looks like:

And here are my possible picks for the fourth row:

  • Sequel: Not the first book in the seriesQueen of Shadows (Throne of Glass, #4)

There are so many possibilities for this one. Just skimming through my ‘owned’ shelf on goodreads helped me form this tentative list:

And many of these have additional sequels to them, so if I end up using a particular one for another category instead, I can always just use the next book along for this square.

  • Novel by an r/Fantasy AMA Author of Writer of the Day

Truthwitch (The Witchlands, #1)Here is a link to the past AMA Authors. Not sure where to find a list of Writers of the Day though. So if you find one, do tell me. The one that sticks out to me the most at the moment is Susan Dennard, author of Truthwitch, a book I purchased a couple months or so ago and have been meaning to read. So hey, there you go. :”D

 

  • Subgenre: Fantasy of Manners

His Majesty's Dragon (Temeraire, #1)I had to go into the recs thread for this one. I had no idea what a Fantasy of Manners was… 😛

I’m thinking I’ll pick up Soulless by Gail Carriger, The Memoirs of Lady Trent by Marie Brennan or I might even reread His Majesty’s Dragon by Naomi Novik, since it’s been nearly a decade since I last read it. Not sure yet what I’ll do, but this list gives me a good start.

  • Fantasy novel featuring dragons

The HobbitHah. Two of the above could count for this one, too. His Majesty’s Dragon and The Memoirs of Lady Trent. I’m also super tempted to pick up The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien… I haven’t read it yet and I know that it’s ‘one of those books’. I’m thinking bout picking it up on audio though. I’ve heard having it read to you makes the experience more magical, haha.

 

  • Subgenre: New Weird

EmbassytownI see ‘New weird’ and my brain screams China Mieville. I’ve read a total of one of his books so far… though I own a good amount by now. I could either read The Scar, which is the companion sequel to Perdido Street Station, Kraken, Embassytown… I think I own one or two more but I can’t think of them at the moment. So yes, one of those.

 


And that’s it for row four. The next day or two will have row five done with, and then you won’t have to see me gooing about this thing ’til the end of the month during my April Wrap Up. :”D Happy reading!

    What is a fantasy of manners? I’ve never heard of that either! From the books you listed it seems to be historical or alternative history fantasy, but in a high society British/European kind of setting?

      That’s basically what I got from it, yeah. Elizabethan, Rennaissancey, yada yada fantasy. Skirts and ‘how do you do’s.

        Ah okay, got it! I guess ‘Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell’ would also fit then. Btw I love “skirts and how do you dos” – that should totally be in the official definition 🙂

        And it should! xD
