I'm kind of torn about what to read next. The end of the Liveship trilogy is fast approaching, and I've honestly no idea what to read next out of these. Several have been in the backlog for a while, several I just bought, and of course one risen to prominence due to what I'm currently reading.

So I asked myself; "why decide when others can do it for me?"

Seriously though I figured I might have some fun and let fate decide what comes next, since I'm feeling a fairly equal pull to all of the titles on the list.

The answer is always Discworld.
Except when it's 42. But, otherwise, Discworld.

Assassin's apprentice. The Farseer trilogy is amazing. As is the whole of the Realm of the Elderlings series. You've already read the Liveship Traders trilogy, which comes after this. Robin Hobb is my favourite author.

I also really enjoyed the Legend of Eli Monpress, I found it to be like a mix of The Lies if Locke Lamora and The Codex Alera, both of which I loved. This is a bit of a hidden gem and don't really know if anyone who has read it.

Discworld. Then Discworld again, and again until you run out.

The only two series from that list I’ve read is Discworld and Farseer. You should read Discworld. I’m not a fan of the Farseer trilogy personally. I liked Assassin’s Apprentice, hated Royal Assassin, and liked about a quarter of Assassin’s Quest. I can’t remember if it was the first quarter or last quarter. It’s been too long.

Can't you read something that isn't problematic instead? Yikes.

Yeah, Liveship probably should have been read after Farseer, but I suppose it really doesn't matter.

Well, not that the poll shows it but Assassin's Apprentice ultimately won, as a couple of people IRL also weighed in and someone I chat with about books picked it up as well (I got them onto Liveship and they continued straight on into Farseer, so I had to follow em).

I will however work Feet of Clay in between the trilogy somewhere.

Honestly I didn't feel like there was anything missing, as someone who hasn't read Farseer yet. There were a couple of things that sounded like they were probably references to previous stories, but it felt completely standalone and I was very satisfied with it. Plus it's what has convinced me to give Assassin's Apprentice another shot after it didn't quite gel with me the first time (I think I just wasn't in the mood).

Problematic in what way?

Yeah I'll probably read Legend of Eli Monpress by years end, bought it straight after my last topic asking for recommendations and seemed like my jam.
