Book Recommendations?

Hey Sounis!

I have been on the most terrible reading slump since March 😫. Seems like I'm stuck trying to scratch an itch I can't really define, lol. I've been all over Goodreads and Reddit trying to find something that would do the job, but I only managed to like, maybe two books, out of over a dozen I've tried.

So I've come here, because many books I've enjoyed over the years came from WSK and other book reco posts from this community.

The last few days I've been kind of in the mood for underdog stories, very much in line with QoA, KoA, and ACoK. Do you guys have any suggestions? Preferably a female protagonist, someone with an arc similar to Attolia's backstory — a shadow princess that everybody dismissed, who became a powerful ruler. Doesn't have to be a princess/queen, just someone who shows people how much of a girlboss she is. (Also, preferably someone more sympathetic than Attolia. I love Irene, but I can't get into her head.)

(Also, also, no love triangle please!)

It's all right if you don't have any suggestions up that alley. I'll be glad to hear of anything you really liked lately!

The Squire's Tales read-along continues!

Great turn out tonight! It's always fun chatting!

This week the WSK book club will be reading The Ballad of Sir Dinadan, and the chat to discuss it will be held June 13th at 6pm CT. After this week, we will be switching to a two week schedule on account of both Father's Day and Independance Day being on a Sunday, as well as the books getting progressivly longer.

So, so, so, the chat schedule for the second half of The Squire's Tales series will go as follows...

The Princess, the Crone, and the Dung-Cart Knight - June 27th

The Lioness and Her Knight - July 11th

The Quest of the Fair-Unknown - July 25th

The Squire's Quest - August 8th

The Legend of the King - August 22nd

That way we'll have a break before the Return of the Thief reread starts late September/early October!

Tell Alexa to set a reminder and happy questing reading! :)

More Squire's Tales Next Week!

It was great chatting with everyone tonight and discussing our first ever WSK Book Club read, the first book of The Squire's Tales! We had a handful of people show, but I know there are far many more Gerald Morris fans in the community. Remember, even if you're not currently rereading the books, you can still come. We will catch you up on what you've forgotten!

We will continue this week with the second book in the series, The Squire, His Knight, and His Lady, and the chat to discuss it will be held Sunday, May 23rd at 6pm CT. Like the first book, it's a pretty quick read, so it shouldn't take you too long.

During the chat, the topic came up of what elements of the story are original and what are from Arthurian cannon. I just remembered that Overly Sacarstic Productions did a couple of great videos summarizing the development of Arthurian mythos. Check them out for a quick history lesson.

Overly Sarcastic Productions: King Arthur

Overly Sarcastic Productions: The Knights of the Round Table

BONUS!
Ted-Ed: Is there any truth to the King Arthur legends?

Happy questing reading!
