what is your favorite grimdark book or series?

Unread post by legionnut »

i tend to binge books and then fast for a while then binge again.
(ok i binge more in winter. i admit)
right now i'm reading grimdark type books. ( in the middle of the black company by glen cook)
i've read a few other series and you love to hear what others recommend or want to read.

Welcome to our small little Board, hope you will enjoy it ☺

We have lots of members that read the same genre as you :D

Sadly I don't have much time anymore for reading.... :lol: too busy feeding all the members reading lust....

I am into mystery/crime at the moment

I didn't really know what grimdark was, so I went to Goodreads! And apparently I have a few books in my TBR list that fall into that genre (though I haven't read any), like:

- The Poppy War Series by R.F. Kuang
- The Library at Mount Char by Scott Hawkins
- The Chronicles of Alice Series by Christina Henry
- Villains Series by V.E. Schwab
- Who Fears Death Series by Nnedi Okorafor
- The Divine Cities Series by Robert Jackson Bennett

I have no idea if they do fit what you were looking for - or if the are any good, for that matter! hehe

I have read the first book in both the Bennett and Kuang series, and they are both quite good, yet I have not felt the need to rush and read the second in either series. Mark Lawrence is the only other author I have read which would be classified as "grimdark" and would recommend.

Thanks for the input!
